A lot has been changing about relationships in the present day. Not only has dating become a fresher and sexier arena, but people are also looking for real love. In fact, 88% of American couples that have gone the distance did so for love of their new spouse.
Before marriage, of course, comes love. But before love comes the getting-to-know-each-other stage of a relationship. To get to know someone in the best way possible you’re going to need to come up with spunky and unique date night ideas.
Here, we’re going to give you a few great ideas for dates. Ditch the movie theater or fancy restaurant and get ready for some authentic fun instead!
1. Liven It Up
Going to the movies is a tried and true first date activity, but it isn’t really a great way to show off your creativity. Still, if you like the storytelling setting or the dim, romantic lighting provided by a theater… why not consider a live one?
There are plays being put on in almost every US city. Going to one of these live performances is a fun and unique way to have a good night. Plus, plays provide an element of interaction with the stories that the movies just can’t.
2. Group Hang
Nervous to go on a date? Wondering how you’re going to fill an entire night with conversation but don’t want to go to the theater and not talk at all?
Consider going on a double date or a group date! Having other couples around can be a lot of fun. Not only will you get to interact with other friends, but these people can help fill any awkward gaps in conversation.
3. Escape Room
If you want to take your relationship to the next level and build trust with your partner, a great date idea might be to go to an escape room together. Escape rooms are fun exercises in communication. Plus, doing puzzles and setting yourself free is fun, at any rate!
4. A Doggone Good Time
Everyone loves dogs, but have you thought about incorporating them into your date? There are all sorts of places you and a partner can go to pet and play with therapy dogs.
Since animals can be great for your health in addition to providing you with amusement and joy, this is an option that’s well worth looking into for your next date night.
5. Fashion and Fun
If you’re looking for a fun and sexy way to spice up your night, a good idea might be to put on a fashion show for the person you’re with. This will help you show off your style as well as discover new ones!
This isn’t just a good time in and of itself, but when you look hot in your clothes, it can- ahem- lead to a lot more good times. Just saying.
Great Date Night Ideas
Coming up with awesome and unique date night ideas can be tough. Luckily, there’s a lot you can do when you think outside the box!
Now that you know the best date night ideas, why not show yourself a little love and buy yourself some flowers? It’s important to treat yourself, too!
Have a great date!
