3 Simply Creative First Date Ideas
Stumped on what to do and where to go on a first date? While there’s nothing wrong with watching a movie or meeting for drinks on a first date, there’s nothing like an exciting day ahead to break the ice. Here are 3 creative first date ideas that can make that second date an absolute must:
Channel Your Inner Kitchen God/Goddess
Explore new tastes, recreate old recipes, or challenge each other in a cook off. There’s nothing more fun than learning a basic life skill (like frying eggs) or subtly showing off your domestic side without scaring your date away.
Think Ya Got Game?
Bring out each other’s competitive side by going into an arcade and beating the crap out of your date in every single game. Just make sure there’s no trash talking involved. Plus, round up your tickets at the end of the day and winner gets to pick which arcade prize to bring home. Or you know, winner gets to pick the restaurant, loser pays for dinner?
Another fun idea to try is to get a 5-course meal in 5 different restaurants. A food stall for appetizers, your local salad bar for a Caesar, a pizzeria for some Italian entrée, a café or patisserie for dessert, and your favorite watering hole for late night drinks.
First dates don’t always have to be major awkward situations wherein you either gawk at your date the whole time or avoid his or her gaze all night. Make it fun and exciting with these three date night ideas. Good luck!
