Do you have a first date coming up? Keep calm. It’s going to be ok. The idea with planning a first date is to choose something unique and creative without it being too out there. We’ve got three tried-and-tested fun, romantic date ideas that will guarantee you a second date and beyond.
Be a local tourist
When was the last time you explored your own city? Seeing your city with someone else will give you both a new perspective and guarantee a fun day or night out. Check out local parks and attractions, a festival, or an exhibition. For something different and a little energetic, choose a mid-morning or afternoon walk along a well-known promenade or path. It’s always good to have a place nearby where you can grab a drink and bite afterwards.
Don’t cringe – bowling today is not the bowling of your childhood! Bowling can make for a great first date. It’s always a laugh, especially if you start off with a few drinks at the bar first to ease your nerves. Most bowling alleys now have a DJ or bands playing on different nights, and snacks to share after the game. You can plan a little wager on the game with the winner choosing where to go for drinks afterwards.
Rather than going out for dinner, why not sign up for a cooking class? This will give you both an opportunity to learn new skills and have fun while doing it, and it takes the pressure off having to be one-on-one. Afterwards, sit down to get to know each other over the delicious food you just prepared.
