Original Date Ideas
Hi, my name is Jen, I want to talk to you about dating. I love to go out, I love to be taken out and taken to a fancy restaurant but anybody can buy me a dinner. What I want is for someone to be creative, surprise me, and impress me. So, here are few tips on some original dating ideas.
One fairly simple ideas is creative transport, you can plan on going to movie or show or out to dinner but meet a couple of hours ahead of time and either walk their or find some really fun way of getting there, run to vehicle, hot-air balloon.
I love the idea of maybe taken some kind of class together like a pottery class, not only as a fun, you learn something and if you end up really liking a person you only have some a momentum.
Another good idea is to take something that is traditional going out to a dinner, going to movie but putting a twist on it like go see a really bad movie. It can be really fun to sit and talk during the film or joke about it, it is good bonding experience or go to a restaurant or you have to serve and make your own food together, something like that- that can be really fun.
A pretty simple straight forward idea is making a theme night, go get a Chinese food in China town or go to a neighborhood you have never been to before. So, it can be an adventure for both of you.
Some of the best dates are active dates. It can be a simple as going bowling to amusement park, playing miniature golf, going to a water park or you can take an adventure together, do something really extreme like sky diving or white water rafting or bungee jumping. Those can be really fun and life altering.
Share something new or particularly proficient at, for example if you love to play tennis just you could do all the time maybe your date does not do very often and that would be fun and physical. If you dance, take her dancing. If you are good at any particular skills, share that skill with your date.
And remember that dating does not have to be expensive. The more creative you are, the more you can come up with an idea that does not cost so much money.
This is just a few creative dating ideas. Good luck and have fun.
