Ideas for a Great Date

Aug 27, 2008
Dating can be a lot of fun but it can also be quite boring if you just do the same thing over and over again. Perhaps you have hit a dating rut and you just need some ideas that will liven up your dates and make you look forward to them again. It's normal to get stuck in these ruts and just do what is comfortable, but it can also be a lot of fun to change things up a bit from time to time.

Of course, when you are thinking about where to go on a date you may need to think about the person that you will be going with. Some people are more refined and conservative while others are up for adventure. Just be sure that you know the kind of person that you are dating and what they would enjoy before making any extreme dating plans.

Fun Date Ideas

A class date, but one that many forget about, is miniature golf. Miniature golf is a lot of fun because it can help to break the ice on a first date. Everyone looks silly when they play miniature golf and most of us aren't that great. This will get both of you laughing and you'll find that this can easily segue into a great date including dinner and a movie. Miniature golf is always a lot of fun, so why not make it a part of your date?

Another great idea if you are going on a date with someone who is adventurous is a ROPES course. This is sort of like an obstacle course for adults that is challenging but also a lot of fun. You can compete against one another or you can do it together. This is a great date option when you know that both of you are into physical challenges. If you aren't sure about the physicality of your date, this may be something that you want to pass on.

There are a lot of arcade type places that are meant just for adults. These venues often serve food and drinks and offer up all of the fun games that you could want. Think Chuck E. Cheese for adults! This can be a really fun way to spend your time and money on a date, and being in such a place will return you to your childhood, doing away with those awkward date moments!

Why not go bowling for a first date? Even if both of you are terrible this can be fun, in fact you may have more fun if you are both awful bowlers because you'll get laughing and you won't be able to stop. Many great dates have started at a bowling alley, so don't be afraid to take your date out, but on some funny looking shoes, and toss a few bowling balls!
