Fresh Date Ideas to Impress A Girl
Picking the right place for a date is not the easiest thing to do. And, the burden is on you to pick the right spot. Smart men have two or three options ready for a date at any time. This is true whether it is the first date or the third date. That being said, the choices need to be smart as well. No lazy daters allowed.
To pick the right date ideas, you need to always keep one-on-one in mind. Settings that don’t let the two of you focus on each other as needed are bad news. You want an environment that is enjoyable or fun, but lets you talk easily and become closer.
Ahead are some suggestions that will let you have an excellent time with your girl and keep the focus off the date choice. To do that, first let’s look at some bad date ideas to avoid.
One aspect of a good date is showing that you put thought into it. While the right date doesn’t require a lot of thought, it is the fact you did that wins their heart. How you approach the date will revolve around “where you are at” in the relationship and what the romance level needs to be.
Are you courting or convincing? If you are on a non-romantic date, don’t kill the date with flowers and soft music. However, if she might be “the one,” make sure to add the romantic flair to the date.
Going to a park – this is a tried and true date location. Dates in parks can have so many variations. Plan a picnic; nothing too elaborate, simple fare, a bottle of wine and a nice day. Go for a walk through the park; it’s simple but lets you focus on her, and you can make stops for a snack or drink as you go. Plan a movie at the park; technology has gotten us to the point where enjoying a movie together in the park is easy, and lots of ways to accomplish it. This is much more personal than the theater version.
Botanical gardens or the beach – flowers and nature appeal to many ladies. These locations offer lots of opportunity to share and interact with each other and the environment. Take a thermos of wine, relax and enjoy the beauty with her.
If it’s going to be dinner, make it special – dinner dates are pretty typical. Spice it up a bit. Look for unique dinner locations in your town. Maybe it is a dinner cruise or a restaurant atop a city building. Maybe there are some “cook your own” dinner classes; you get a cooking lesson, then sit and enjoy the meal you cooked.
Wine tasting – many ladies love wine. Show a little culture and go to a wine tasting. You will learn a bit about wine, as well as enjoy some.
Art fairs and music festivals – most of these are held in local parks or in town. These are great places to learn about each other’s tastes, enjoy some nice food and music and conversation is easy to have.
Drive-In movies – while a normal theater environment isn’t great for a date, drive-ins are. If one still exists near you, give it a try. It is great for nostalgia, and it is perfect for privacy and close conversation while being able to see a move as well.
Explore a new area together – maybe there is an eclectic part of town that neither of you has explored. Maybe one or the other has and can act as a guide. Either way, you have plenty of opportunities to talk, learn and enjoy each other’s company. Spontaneity is romantic so don’t be afraid to enjoy activities you might discover while there.
Skip dinner and do a dessert challenge – girls love sweets. Challenge yourselves to discover the best sweet in town. Pop into some different local restaurants, sweet shops, etc. and share a dessert. This is great for talking and getting to know each other, plus sharing dessert is romantic.
Cook dinner for her – this can be a challenge if you don’t know how to cook. However, you wouldn’t be the first guy to learn how to cook one specific meal and attempt to knock her socks off. Just remember, smart men know how to cook. While this seems to go against the “your place for the date” rule, you should do this at her place. Coming to her home and cooking her a wonderful meal is like instant romance. You can even screw up with the meal a bit and receive forgiveness. The romance factor can be that high.
Those are just a few ideas to get you going. Tailor any date to the girl in question. If you are doing your job right, you know her likes and dislikes. There are so many places to have a date, it makes you wonder why you instantly think dinner or movie. Again, the important part is that you put thought into a date. Do not forget the romantic touches when necessary or stick to having fun when it isn’t. When you keep a woman wondering what the next date holds, you keep her interested.
