The “traditional-meeting-at-a-bar-for-drinks” first date doesn’t excite anyone anymore. People are always looking forward to new experiences and ways to make the first date exciting and memorable. Here are a few ideas to plan your fun first date and make sure there’s a second.
Go for outdoor concerts or a drive-in movie
Options for outdoor activities multiply in summers. For a perfect summer romance, take your date out. Literally! A drive-in movie experience can be very romantic and is perfect for the first date. You can also go for any of your favourite bands performing out in the open. And if your taste in music matches, then there’s nothing better than that. Watching those romantic scenes or dancing while singing along your favourite songs will make your date happier than ever.
Not a regular bar, try the karaoke bar
It is like a regular date with a twist. Everyone loves music and sigs their favourite song. Head out to a karaoke bar and show off your singing skills to your date. Maybe they’d join in too and then it’s a party. Singing at karaoke also dhows that you’re confident and outgoing. And we all love those personality traits.
Go for a walk or watch the sunset together or both
The simplest moments can be the most powerful. Grab a cuppa coffee and promenade around the town. Maybe go a park or the beach. This will give you plenty of time to get to know each other and have some deep, meaningful conversations. So will watching the sunset together. There’s nothing more peaceful to watch than the sun go down in the evening.
Bonus tip: Beach would be the perfect location if you plan on doing both.
Visit an old book store or library
The books one reads can tell a lot about their personality. Go to a local library or used bookstore and explore the pages together. You can share your favourite stories and poems, and recommend books to each other and enjoy the beautiful quiet ambience with the sweet smell of old books in the background.
Never go wrong with a street fairs or a food fest
Best part about these fests? There’s something for everyone. Even if your choices in food don’t match, you can pick up different types of foods from the stalls. There are plenty of adventure games you can try to make the date fun and even buy a small token for your first date from the kiosks. These places are basically multiple experiences all packed in one and you are sure to have a memorable time.
You can go for any of the ideas or combine two and make your own perfect date. To make things more intimate, you can take your date to your favourite lace or for your favourite activity. That’ll make them feel really special and help you win their heart.
