Cities have really grown in their capacity to offer truly unique experiences, and if you don't live in a metropolitan area you can recreate some of these ideas at home. When you're trying to get to know someone you may want an experience that feels natural, like taking a class together or trying a new activity. A lot of these date ideas take place in silence or give you ample opportunity to discuss what's going on around you—so even if the date doesn't work out, you get to have the experience regardless!
Plus, you'll get to know a person even better by putting them into a situation they're maybe not so used to, like cycling or going to an arcade. Ahead, some unique date ideas to get you started. Don't forget to bring a comfy blanket, some snacks, and have a chill playlist for your evening under the stars. Carbs and a ificant other?
us up. Sure, buying boxed noodles seems easier, but watching someone crank out some dough is an unspoken turn-on. There, I said it. You can still totally do this if both or one parties are gluten-free with this easy recipe. Not only is this an out-there date idea, but it's a great stress reliever too. There's just something about throwing a heavy ax at a wooden target that just makes us forget about all our worries and lets us act as if we were on a one-on-one Bachelor date.
Sure, it's fun to watch your city or state's team play, but try a sport you guys have never watched or supported before—like netball or rowing, for instance. Local colleges and universities often have games that are open to the public, and there should be enough space to sit, watch, and listen to yourselves talk while you cheer and try to explain the rules of the game to each other. In the warmer months, this could mean a roof deck with a water feature, in the winter it could mean a jacuzzi or splashing around in a public pool.
But if you're just hanging out poolside it's a relaxing and chill vibe. If you're actually diving in pun intended with bathing suits on Just make sure your date's up for it before you go. I know what Looking to have a fun first time thinking No one has ever sighed before telling someone they were making their merry way to the famous Swedish furniture store except maybe for the characters on 30 Rock.
Also, it has a food court with some incredible cake, which is great after a day full of picking out your dream space. You read that right: Not just wine-tasting, wine school. This will help you both feel classy and cultured as you learn about how to properly taste the beverage, differentiate between types, find what you like best, and, yes, taste some delicious wine. There's always something to discuss while you sip! Okay, so caveat that if you're not comfortable inviting someone over to where you live right away, this doesn't have to be your go-to move for a first date.
But maybe your date could use your expert interior decorating skills! Maybe there's a common area you could spruce up together! Maybe you could decorate a cubicle or office with some festive decorations! There's lots of ways to decor, you just have to get creative. Another date that sounds like it's straight out of The Bachelorwow your thrill-seeking date with one of the coolest activities out there. Obviously this'll depend on your location and you could trade it out with another heights-heavy activity like bungee-jumping, but it'll immediately establish you as the coolest first date ever.
Plus, it'll be hilarious if you're both getting over your fear of heights together. Make like Leslie Knope and become a novice treasure hunter! One kind of global treasure hunt is called geocaching, some cities have formal hunts, and universities like MIT actually have competitive annual competitions. You could also just take the stakes way, way lower and just walk around seeing if you can spot certain objects.
It's like a hike, with purpose! Listen, you and your date are both busy people. If you've found it hard to connect outside of work, try taking the work to the date! Coworking spaces aren't the dreary cubicles they used to be, and you don't have to be constantly making conversation if you're just quietly working together. Try to add in fun breaks like going to grab coffee or snacks, and finish it off with a meaningful convo when you're both done.
On the totally other end of the spectrum, go nuts with a themed bash guests: the two of you! You could try a kids' party theme, a luau, a '90s costume party, or something the two of you make up. If you want to expand it into double date territory, great, otherwise just make it the most exclusive party ever. Hit up your local Goodwill and give each other 30ish minutes or so to find the craziest outfits for each other to wear to dinner right after. Look at you being all fun and sustainable! The winner gets to choose where you'll dine later, so make sure to go all out. In a similar way, if your area has a shop-lined street, go looking without making any impulse purchases.
Start fun conversations by going into a wildly expensive store with things you can't afford or a knickknack store with random trinkets.
These areas can be bustling around rush hour, with plenty to do and see plus restaurants if all that perusing works up an appetite. Especially if you've moved to a new area, you may be unfamiliar with the local history just outside your door plus, if you're like me, you only do "touristy" stuff like this when you have family or friends in town. Prioritize aspects of your city that are underrated or lesser known, and try to use this opportunity to make yourselves informed citizens of your chosen region. Some cities have bus tours, if you'd rather ride and listen! Or, if you'd rather see things from the water, be it a water taxi or duck boat tour, this can be a fun date option and some boats offer cocktails, as another plus!
Obviously this requires, you know, a sizable body of water. Alternative ideas for anyone who's landbound: kayaking or fishing at a local lake. Call us old fashioned, but nothing is more relaxing than putting together a piece puzzle together with someone. The conversation flows, and if you run out of stuff to talk about, you can just hold up a piece to ask where it's counterpart is.
BOOM, instant conversation. Don't forget to check out our favorite puzzles here. Bundle up, mask included, and go support your local ice skating rink. Learning or teaching you little pro! Don't forget to grab some hot chocolate after! Thanks to the 21st century, you don't have to be in the same room to play each other in your favorite video games. Gaming consoles that you can take on the go, like the Nintendo Switch, can allow you to indulge in some friendly competition from wherever. Seventies fashion is having a revival for a reason, so it's the perfect time for Looking to have a fun first time and your date to jump in on the trend.
Pick up a tie-dye kit at your local craft store, set up outside, and go all out to who can create the most colorful tee. Approaching it from the right attitude—just have fun and be willing to make a mess! Put on your workout clothes and head to the park for some fresh air and relaxation.
Partner yoga positions are always the move, and you can get to know each other in more ways than one lol. Plus, they'll have new respect for how hard yoga is. If you both have a cause you support or, if there's a place nearby that needs your helpconsider ing up to volunteer. There'll be plenty to keep you busy, you'll feel like your time went to good use, and you may even bond over the experience. This may not be for everyone a person who doesn't like getting up early, for exampleor for every time of year, but there's something magical about trucking out together in the early morning to watch the sky change color.
Bonus: Go to brunch after. It's pretty much a guarantee that you'll find a local play, poetry reading, dance troupe, or other public event to attend—and it's supporting local culture, even if it doesn't end up being your cup of tea. Obviously, this won't work if either of you is sick or squeamish, but a fondue place or traditional Japanese shabu-shabu lets you prepare your food in the same shared pot. The latter is customizable and gives you something to talk about while you watch your beef and veggies cook leisurely in a simmering pot.
Alternative: Go and get big bowls of ramen and compete to see who finishes first. There are plenty of open-air venues like parks and rooftops that you can go to during the summer months; Even better, a lot of them have old, classic movies or shows my first date with my husband was Hitchcock's To Catch a Thief at a park in Brooklyn, so I'm FULLY in on this one.
The shared atmosphere and classic flick are a perfect combo. Ok, I realize this sounds like a glorified version of Netflix and Chill. But hear me out! Plenty of bars, restaurants, and social groups do these hello, Successionand it's a great way to participate in a shared obsession. Or, you could host one—but that takes a lot of effort, so finding an existing one feels like an easier choice.
If you and your new date are the athletic sort, what better way to bond than through a shared passion? For anyone hoping for a more For those who love to travel but don't want to or can't go far, take a bus or a train an hour away to see the local sights and just get away from your daily routine. Treat it like a real vacay, with fun local snacks and sightseeing. Even though it's just a skip and a jump away, it's like a whole new world. It's one thing to attend a poetry reading or comedy show, it's quite another to get up and bare your soul to a group of strangers.
Granted, this one's not for people who get stage fright. If that's the case, you can sit and cheer while your date takes the plunge. Don't just walk to get ice cream— really lean in. Bonus points if you can make something that your date wants more than their own. Don't be intimidated!
The scene is loud and boisterous, and the food and drink scene is usually fun too. It's like the ol' dinner and a show—but make it cool. Get solo or couples' massages! Chill out in the jacuzzi! Hang out in the sauna! There's so much to do here, especially after a long, exhausting day.
Just make sure you're both at the same level of comfort maybe one of you prefers a non-nude spa, you know? Have you ever walked by an open house of a beautiful building and think, It must be so gorgeous in there.
Go see how the other half lives, ogle some stunning decor, and talk about what you like and don't like. Best case: It might be useful later on! Worst case: cool architecture, and you don't have to talk much.Looking to have a fun first time
