4 Fun Date Ideas

4 ways to put your best foot forward with a new squeeze

Dating can be stressful and awkward if you don’t have a plan and don’t know what to do to make the date fun. Having fun on a date is important, since everyone is more attractive when they are having a good time!

Here are four fun and inexpensive date ideas that will leave anyone loving the experience and show you how easy it is to date.

Go to the zoo

Going to the zoo is a fun date idea because it gives you the chance to talk and get to know each othe, while at the same time lowering your grownup inhibitions and making you feel like a kid. In addition to traditional zoos, many communities have free or less expensive publicly accessible animal farms, petting zoos, wildlife rehabilitation centers and animal preserves. While watching all the funny animals together, you two will be able to laugh, take pictures and let your personalities shine through.

Try miniature golf

A miniature golf course is another relaxed, childlike environment that takes the stress away and lets you have a fun date. Making up rules to go along with the game, such as using the handle of the putter like a pool cue or spinning three times before you swing, will make the date that much more fun!

Picnic outside

Whether you do this on a beach, in a park or at a beautiful camp site, make sure you can have a fire going. Pack a light dinner of sandwiches and pasta salad, and for dessert, bring all the fixin’s for s’mores. S’mores are so ooey gooey and fun to make that you will surely be flirting and poking fun at each other by the second bite. After dessert, lie back on a blanket and count shooting stars to conclude this fun, inexpensive outdoor date.

Make dessert together

Grocery stores are great places to have fun with your date and mess around. After you take your date out for dinner, have three envelopes with the recipes for different desserts in them. Have him or her choose an envelope, and go to the store and find the ingredients together. Then, head home to make dessert while talking and laughing with a bottle of wine or sparkling cider.
