Let us say that you have finally secured that date with the girl of your dreams. Perhaps, you have dated before and it ended in disaster, and now you would like to try again. The question is what are the things to do on a date?
When it comes to dating, there are two things that you should remember: you should be able to impress your date and it should be interesting enough that it becomes memorable. All dates should be fun and enjoyable, but at the same time should inject elements of love and romance. Let us take a look at some ways to do on a date that will hopefully lead to a long-lasting relationship.
First of all, nothing beats going traditional. This means you can take your date out on a movie, watch a concert or have a romantic candlelight dinner in an elegant restaurant. Make sure that you know her likes and dislikes. If she’s a fan of horror movies, you can be the man she cuddles up to during those scary moments. Take her to watch a concert or show of her favorite pop singer. If dinner out is what you have in mind, find out what her food preferences are. Check out the restaurants in your area that serve dishes that the both of you will enjoy.
Secondly, you can have a date based on her interests and hobbies. Does she love books? You might want to take her out to a bibliophile café. These coffee shops also offer for sale a small collection of books. Is she a history lover? You can visit historical sites in your area. Make sure that you do some research on these sites, so that you can regale her with your knowledge. If she loves looking at the stars, nothing can be more romantic than a trip to the planetarium. By going on these types of dates, you will learn more about each other, your similarities and differences, so that you will be able to gauge your compatibility.
Thirdly, if you want to give your date nothing but the best (and you have the money for it), why not go on a weekend off to another city or location? You might want to check out the sites in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, or some other part of the country. Don’t squeeze in too many sites to visit in your itinerary. Instead, go for the spots that interest the both of you. Or simply focus on romantic themes, such as walks along the beach and quiet dinners at five-star restaurants.
If you lack the financial resources, you can entertain your date right in the comfort of your own home. Of course, there are certain issues that will make your date hesitate about going to your home, foremost among them is that what you probably have in mind is sex. However, sex should be furthest from your mind, and you should instead establish romance and trust first. You can do this by cooking your own dinner and then enjoy a movie on the couch with a large bowl of popcorn. You can also play some video games (some of the sports games on Wii are fun to do on an “at-home” date) or you can sing duets on a karaoke machine. You might want to consider having a pillow fight, but of course, don’t make it too rowdy or raunchy that it will cause alarm bells to sound in your date.
These are just some of the things to do on a date. Just remember that in order to create that spark between the two of you, let your date be both fun, enjoyable and memorable. This lasting impression will help the both of you to take the next step toward forging a life-long relationship.
