Getting bored of the usual dinner and a movie date? Us too.
There's plenty of other ways to get to know each other and strengthen your bond. That's why we came up with these fun date night ideas you and your guy will both enjoy.
From wine and beer tours to volunteering, these are exciting adventures you and your guy will remember forever.
Sure, being surrounded by dusty stuff may sound boring, but finding silly trinkets and old oddities can actually be pretty entertaining. See who can find the strangest lamp or most unique vintage pants.
Taking A Class
When it comes to imagining fun dates, "going to school" isn't typically the first thing that pops into any of our minds, but hear me out: learning together is an excellent way of bonding while also improving your lives, thus making the both of you associate positive, productive feelings with one another.
Bizarre, incomprehensible art pieces can provide more conversation than you may realize. Whether you both find a huge love for performance artists or you find the whole lot to be pretentious, this can be an entertaining option for Saturday afternoons.
Yes, I realize this sounds silly. Why would you want to go running with somebody as a date? You get hot, you get sweaty, you get – oh, wait, those aren't bad things at all. Plus, you’ll be doing something healthy and productive while spending time together!
Most cities have film fests. Sometimes, they're teensy ones that last just an evening and have a special theme between four or so films; other times, they're enormous, star-studded events with celebrities and red carpets in all directions. Whatever the case near you, it'll be super fun to do it with your sweetheart!
I love volunteering with someone I'm dating. It's a great way of learning about how much the other person cares for human beings, the environment or whatever other cause you both appreciate.
Going To The Library
Ready to stir up some nostalgic feelings? This idea can help you learn more about your partner and his or her childhood.
Wanna get excited and get away for your upcoming weekend but don't have the time to travel? Snag an inexpensive room nearby using a discount travel service provider such as Orbitz or Priceline. You two will still feel better rested and as though you got to escape from all your stresses, but won't have to deal with the price nor the time commitment that accompanies going out of town.
There are constantly bands all of a sudden reuniting to the great excitement of their fans. If you two love music, this can be a great way to share a priceless, unable-to-be-duplicated evening together, particularly if it's a band you both love very much already.
Live Taping Of TV Show (Or Movie!)
This one tends to work only if you live in cities like Los Angeles or New York City, but it can happen other ways, too. For example, you can scour Craigslist for alerts on film crews needing extras, then show up together and enjoy the day as a pair of regular ol’ film stars
Getting dressed up with your sweetheart is a fun, formal and unique way to spend an evening. For an extra dose of fanciness, go out for drinks beforehand to your favorite nice hotel’s bar and sip a couple of cocktails in your snazzy outfits.
Although going to a playground at night sounds silly, if you each like to indulge your inner child, this can be a totally strange and amusing way to play together as adults. You’ll be able to chat about your childhoods, get a little active and feel all the nostalgia that comes from jumping off a mid-air swing.
Visiting hot springs is a sexy, therapeutic means by which you can relax together. Take a day trip and visit the closest one to you for an all-natural spa day (that will cost a fraction of the price!).
Parasailing (Or Skydiving!)
Are you and your partner adrenaline junkies? Take your date to new heights by having an adventure in the air! If either of you are a little anxious about the idea, try parasailing first. Need more wild? Search for reputable places to take you two to jump out of a plane, you brave devil, you.
If you two love excitement but the above idea regarding jumping out of planes didn't appeal to you, why not try riding some coasters together? There's lots of time to chat in line while waiting and you'll also get a chance to have some photographic evidence of your time together from the craziest rides.
While I love aquatic plants and wildlife, I am admittedly afraid of water where I can't see the bottom which is exactly why snorkeling in clear, clean, shallow areas is extremely appealing to me. If you two are more adventurous than I, though, you can snorkel in plenty of lakes and oceans to see what’s beneath the surface as a team. Bring an underwater camera for posterity shots!
Wine and Beer Tours
Taking a tour of your favorite vineyard or brewery is a great activity for two people to do together on a weekend afternoon or evening. Plus, these are often free or very cheap, and typically include samples for your tasting pleasure.
In my opinion, karaoke nights are best done with multiple people. In the event you have another couple you've been meaning to double up with, venture to your local karaoke bar and dare one another to do a few fun songs each. If you're feeling extra brave, do a duet together. It doesn't have to be a romantic song – just a tune you both love and know by heart. Note: I strongly recommend "Danke Schoen"!
Watching The Sunrise
Do you both appreciate the beauty of nature? Stay up all night (or just wake up super early), then take a walk to your favorite park or hilltop. Have a seat, drink some tea and watch a glorious sunrise together.
Take A Ballroom Dance Class
Love the way salsa looks but have always been afraid to try it alone? Take a class together so you'll undoubtedly have a partner. Plus, plenty of them are offered above venues where a dance night is held below later on, so you'll get a chance to show off your skills together for even more fun, if you so choose.
Whether you're actually new to the city or have been there for years, taking a trolley or bus tour around your area of residence will let you two learn more about it as a couple. You may even spot a hidden gem of a restaurant you've always wanted to try together.
Attend A Poetry Slam
Going to a regular poetry reading can be a bit inaccessible and boring for those who don’t really love listening to poems already. Poetry slams are high-energy events with lots of humor, conversation pieces and intellectual discourse, all of which you two can enjoy as a pair.
For those who love a couple hands of poker on occasion or enjoy doing slot machines once in a while, or even if you just like buffets, going to a casino can be an exciting evening. If you live near a particularly fancy one, perhaps dress up and pretend you're Sharon Stone and Robert De Niro (minus the coke addiction and violent tendencies).
Disposable Photo Adventures
If you each love taking dreamy, odd pictures that nobody can peek at and say, "Don't tag me on Facebook!" then this is the date for you: grab a couple of cheap disposable cameras and run around the city you live in, perhaps even visiting friends and beloved past date spots, snapping pictures all the way. Develop them the next day and compare.
Who says you can't fly? Try soaring through the sky together on your next date. Trapeze flying is all about trust, so who better to do it with than your guy? The couple that flies together stays together.
