a few Date ideas

Updated on July 6, 2007

date ideas

If you are new to the dating scene or maybe have taken a break and are just getting back into the swing of things or even want to freshen up and develop new ideas when it comes to dating, then here are some helpful tips and advice to help you get a head start.

While the majority of women do enjoy going to a romantic dinner with soft lighting, music and candles, this is usually classed as the standard when it comes to dating. However not all men and indeed women are true romantics and there are many other ways in which you can impress your date if you only put in a little thought and imagination. For all those who lack imagination then here are some ideas.

If you and your date are sporty people then try such as in line skating or ice skating, while this isn't considered by many to be the perfect romantic date, for those who are into sports and are fit and healthy then something a little more adventurous can be just the thing. A date such as this will also help to keep things on the light side and there should be lots of fun and laughter if nothing else.

If you are lucky enough to live close enough to a beach then consider packing lunch and a bottle of wine and head for the sand. This not only gives you the opportunity to see what the other looks like in their swimwear but will also give you plenty to do such as playing beach bowling, walking and swimming.

A fun way to spend a few hours and to break the ice is to go and play mini golf; this will always be a laugh and a sure way to break the ice and is particularly suitable for those who are a little shy when it comes to taking and making conversation.

Another alternative for those who are a little shy and find it hard to make conversation at the first meeting should consider going to a concert. This can be a pop, rock or blues concert or depending on your tastes could be jazz or classical.

If you want to go totally overboard and really impress your date then consider going for something such as a day out in a hot air balloon, sky diving or skiing. Although these are for the more adventurous of people and you should also make sure that this is what the other might consider fun and are say not afraid of heights, if you were to take them up in the air then this could be the end of what could be a beautiful relationship.
