So you clicked on this because you’re looking for some dating ideas and I can’t wait to share them with you. They are great for first dates or to bring some va-va-voom back into your love life.
I do love going out on dates because it’s an opportunity to explore and experience new things. In my opinion, going on dates shouldn’t be stressful, they should be fun filled events! I do, however, believe in resting in my feminine energy so for me this is about planting seeds to get him thinking… Now of course there are times when I will delight and surprise him too because I do enjoy treating the man in my life. With that in mind, here are some cute dating ideas that you can take inspiration from to plant those seeds or take action on by planning out.
1. Picnic Time
Okay this is weather dependent but how about a picnic in a beautiful park overlooking the river or a spot with a scenic view? I don’t know about you but the pandemic really made me value ‘park life’. You could couple this with going on a mini shopping trip together to select items for the basket with all your favorite treats! This could be a fun getting to know you better experience in itself, and now I’m thinking about strawberries dipped in chocolate and Prosecco (yum).
2. A trip to the vineyard
Red wine anyone? A day trip to the vineyard will allow you to do some serious wine tasting. Not to mention the opportunity to spend time in a picturesque location and fine dining experiences. If you both aren’t too tipsy, and the vineyard has one, you might even have the opportunity to rise into the sky in a hot air balloon.
3. Drive-in Film
The only downside to this is it requires someone who knows how to drive. However, there are some super cool places where you can drive-through and watch a movie from the comfort of a car. They are convenient and make for such a cute date night! The great thing is you can bring your own goodies or buy them when you are there. I actually enjoy the feeling of being all cosy in a car with the heat on!
4. Adrenaline activities for the daring
If you are both adrenaline junkies, there are so many dating ideas for this. From jet boating, rock/ice climbing, skydiving, zip lining or bungee jumping. You could even go against gravity and see what it is like to fly in the air like an astronaut at an indoor skydiving centre. Take your pick!
5. Make some art
How about taking a course together? Imagine learning to paint, to cook something exotic, or even going to a pottery class; channel the scene from the movie, “Ghost”. Learning something new together can be a great bonding experience and could bring you both closer to each other.
6. Cheap but worthy date
If you are on a tight budget, it doesn’t mean that you can’t have a romantic date. How about putting on a romantic comedy on Netflix, sit on the floor of the living room surrounded by comfy cushions and eat microwave popcorn. Your whole house will have the Cinema kind of vibe with the smell of popcorn and dark atmosphere.
7. Take advantage of mother nature
This one doesn’t cost you anything. It only requires you to wake up early while it is still dark outside, pack a blanket and drive yourselves to your favourite beach (location permitting). Lay on the sand with your love and watch the sparkling night stars. As the dawn arrives, gaze into the horizon and watch the beautiful orange sunrise over the ocean.
8. Weekend away
Wherever you live in the world, you more than likely have a place nearby, perhaps a few hours away, where you can go and enjoy a romantic weekend away. Plant the seeds for him to book the hotel in advance and share it’s for a special occasion to get some extras in your room upon arrival. For example, champagne, bright red scented rose petals onto the floor for even greater sentimental effect and more.
So there you have it, 8 dating ideas to bring some spontaneity and fun to or back into your love life.
