Three Fun Date Ideas

We all look forward to date night, but is easy to fall into a rut when you are going out. If you and your sweetie end up going to dinner and a movie every week, try out these ideas to add some excitement to your dates.

Walk Down Memory Lane

There is nothing more romantic than visiting the spots that made you fall in love in the first place. If you still live near the spots where you fell in love, take an evening and visit these spots together.

Start by enjoying a meal at the restaurant where you had your first date, then take a leisurely stroll in the mark where you shared your first kiss. You can also return to the site where you first said, “I love you,” re-enact your proposal or go back to some of your favorite dating locations from your early courtship.

If you no longer live in the same area that you did when you were dating, you will have to be a bit more creative during this date. For instance, if you and your partner enjoyed a pepperoni pizza on your first date, take him to a local pizzeria for the evening. If you got engaged during an evening on the beach, take a stroll and watch the sunset at a nearby lake. It is fun to see how long it takes your partner to figure out the connections!

Get Physical

There is more than one way to get busy with your partner on a date! You can enjoy spending time together while burning calories by participating in active dates. It is especially enjoyable to try something that neither of you has tried before.

Rollerblading, biking, playing tennis or shooting hoops are all great date ideas. Best of all, these activities cost little or no money. When your body is moving, your adrenaline will start pumping. This provides positive mental and physical results.

Find Your Inner Artist

You don’t have to be a professional artist to enjoy creating a work of art. Plenty of laughs are guaranteed when you and your partner create something beautiful together.

One of the most fun dates I shared with my husband was a visit to a local pottery store. We both bought inexpensive pieces of pottery to paint, and then we laughed and talked for hours while we perfected our masterpieces. Those little vases still sit on our mantle, and they are a great reminder of how much fun we have spending time with each other.
