If you can relax with someone, are attracted to them and can be your best self, well, you may well have met your match.
Here are some fantastic date ideas that will help you bond with a loved one.
Head for the beach
This one works a little better in summer than it does in winter (obviously), but a day out at the beach can be heaps of fun. You and your betrothed can frolic on the sand and in the sea and unwind as you hear the sound of the waves. And it doesn't have only to be for the day! Make the most of it and carry your date on for the weekend if the mood takes you. Seek out a super cute hotel or inn and make the most of it.
Make a campfire
Unlike the last tip, this one is perfect for the winter months! It's a lovely thing to make something together. Takes yourselves off to a forest of a woods and once you've made sure the area if fire-friendly; get building! And once you've got the fire going you can both relax around the campfire and cook yourself some sweet treats. S'mores particularly make people happy!
Find a funfair.
This feels like a date night that is as old as time; a night out at the carnival! It's the perfect place for you and your loved one to snuggle up together on some scary rides. You can also watch each other try to win soft toys at the arcades and of course, eat cotton candy together. It's the ultimate romantic date night that is reminiscent of happy high school days. So hold hands and enjoy the bumper cars together.
Go to the park
This is such a simple but sweet idea; a day out at a park on a warm day. You can feed the duck and wander amongst the beautiful blooms. To make it extra special, you could always do some picnic planning together. It's so lovely to make sandwiches and pack treat that both of you are going to really enjoy. So simple but oh so cute!
Hit the thrift
Who doesn't love rummaging through the thrift store, and hunting out some goodies together! It's quite exciting to play dress-up together, and you can have some real fun in the thrift store together. If you're not so keen on staying in an actual store, why not hit an outdoor flea market. The trinkets, books, and treats that you can unearth at a flea market are something special. Look out for supersized flea markets because they'll give you something fun to do all day long.
Take a cooking lesson
They say that a way to a man's heart is through his stomach…but it could be the way to your stomach too! If you both like eating (and who doesn't) and you both enjoy each others company, then perhaps you should consider taking a cooking course together! Cooking together can be a bonding experience, and at the end of it, you get to eat something delicious! If you want to try something different, why not attend a sushi-making class. Sushi making is a real skill, and you'll both feel super proud of yourselves when it's over.
Find the water
A little bit of nature's charm on a date will always see you right, and you can't go too far wrong with a romantic trip to your local aquarium. There's something seriously serene about taking in and watching some beautiful fish. As you walk through the quiet and dark aquarium, you'll be pointing out the sea creature to each other, so it's also a great way to share.
Save some money
A great way to spend time together away from Netflix is to do something super affordable but still fun. Hunt down a little coffee shop that hosts open night mic nights. If they don't do this, then they might have a local band playing. The beauty of a coffee shop date is that you can stay in there for hours, but you only have to buy a couple of coffees making it a super cheap but fun date!
Hit the dance floor
And no we don't mean the club. If you want to get up close and personal to your partner, then why not take some latin dance classes together. All of that intense dancing will be sure to get you both sweating and laughing. Don't even worry about being an amazing dancer either – you're not meant to be professionals! You're there to laugh with each other and have fun. Just enjoy each other's company and don't take it all too seriously.
Sing at the karaoke
Who doesn't love a bit of a sing song! Honestly, karaoke on a date is just so much fun! You can pick songs for each other, and if you like you can both have a few drinks together. The great thing about the karaoke bar is that you can both be silly together and it doesn't matter at all. It's a great place to both let your guard down and just have some simple fun.
