“Let’s Take A Long Walk…”
…And then some! Lol. Y’all thought I was kidding when I said I’d want to go to a farm for a date. Lol. I was for real cos like I said before, I think people need to ditch dinner as a first, second, and even third date and go for some more fun and down to earth stuff. So, here are some out-of-the-box date ideas for the brave and adventurous – neither of which I consider myself to be but ah well, who’s checking! :p
·Apple picking (Ok, so we don’t have apples to pick in this part of the world but you get the point :p)
·Cooking class (A guy friend of mine said this is a bit much. Hehe)
·A long walk
·Live football (or basketball, hockey, etc.) match*
·Art Gallery hopping
·Visit a book store***
·Visit your alma maters***
·Visit the zoo***
Notice that all these activities involve talking, for the most part. Ok, maybe not the cycling one but hey. The idea is to engage in an unconventional, fun, relaxed environment with the goal of getting to know the person. Don’t get me wrong, the dinner date works for some people but I just feel like if it’s the first time you’re going out with this person, something a little more relaxing and engaging would probably work better. So, when a guy or girl asks you what to do on a date, please by all means, feel free to refer to this list :D
So, what other unconventional date ideas can you think of? (I’ll keep adding to the list as I think of some)
*He might not let you talk much during the match but you’ll see a side of him you have to be sure you can live with (that’s thinking way ahead but it’s all good!) LOL!!!
