Wondering where to go for your first date? Why be average? When it comes to a first date idea, you want to make a splash. You can do that just by what you pick as a date. So what are some unusual first date ideas that make an impression merely by what you’ve chosen? Here are five that are going to help you to be remembered even before the two of you meet up this weekend.
Watch a Sunrise
It’s rare that people are up early enough to enjoy the natural beauty of a sunrise. You can make things easy on her by rolling up with coffee and some kind of breakfast sandwich. Then the two of you adjourn to a spot you’ve chosen where you get a great view of the sun coming up. You can also do this with a sunset, but it just doesn’t have the same impact of picking her up at 4:30 in the morning bearing food and coffee.
I don’t care how old you are — hitting up the playground is fun. Playing on the slides and the swings is relaxing and puts you back into the headspace of your childhood, which can be a very wonderful and beautiful thing. Not only will you love it, she’ll love you for opening up a side of herself she thought was long gone. That’s something no amount of money can buy.
You have to tread lightly with this one. Some girls will think it’s killer and some girls will think you’re inviting them out to a strip club. In fact, it’s sexy but also classy and there’s always a bit of comedy thrown in for good measure. You get a great show that’s about more than just girls… though that’s there too. It’s always a lot more fun when you roll up with a beautiful babe.
This is another one to file under “inner child.” If burlesque is out at the edge, this is one of the safest bets you can have. And if she doesn’t roller skate super well, you’ll have a lot of opportunities to get up close and personal with her giving her some lessons or catch her when she falls. It’s a great time for all and afterward you can always go to a bar for more more grown up entertainment.
If you’ve both got a lot of concern about your community, there are things you can do to bond together. This can be serving the hungry or walking dogs at the local Humane Society shelter. It really doesn’t matter what it is, as long as you both feel passionately about it and it allows the two of you the opportunity to interact with one another. You’ll get to signal compassion, but also have a good time together. One thing’s certain: If you guys are both into volunteering in the same way, you’ve definitely got some shared values.
The good thing about all of these dates is that they take things very far outside of the “Dinner and a movie” box that we want guys to get out of. You don’t have to do one every time, but you should stretch your repertoire and these are some examples of how you can do that.
