Hubpages writer StricktlyDating is an Australian writer creating pages of original funny quotes and status updates.

Dating is meant to be fun! You're spending time with someone, getting to know them and seeing how your relationship develops, having a good time along the way.

Dinner and movies is great for a first date, even a second, but soon you'll be wanting to spend some time together in the day light, and looking for some fun things to do together.

My suggestions for some fun date ideas are to plan some fun little adventures together, - Sports, hobbies or day trips. Something like a drive up the coast, or into the country for lunch. Or sporting activities such as tennis, diving, golf (Playing or watching a tournament)... If your date is game enough - a salsa dance class!

Physical activities and adventures during the day time help you form a strong bond as they give you memories you can build on. Hopefully, you'll have some laughs together too as you enjoy experiencing the new and getting to know eachother. Don't be afraid to step out of your own comfort zone a little as you may find you enjoy discovering new activities with your date!

Of course a trip to the Zoo, or to a concert could make for a wonderful date, but these can be expensive and you'll want to get out and about regularly with your date as you form your new relationship. So, it's probably more practical to try something like ice-skating, spending a day at the beach, dressing up and heading to the horse races, going on a picnic, or visiting a cool Cafe - otherwise some local sight-seeing.

You don't want to be stuck indoors, pottering around the home together when you're just getting to know someone! It could lead to boredom! To form your new bonds together, and create a fun and interesting relationship, you should be planning to get out and about exploring what sites your local area has to offer, or participating in some sport or hobby activities together, starting a history full of fond memories should your relationship continue further.

Also remember to call your date to make plans rather than messaging or emailing - Because your date will probably be more thrilled to hear your voice and talk to you in the early stages of the relationship, other than if they receive an sms or email from you. You will give a much better impression, and that way you can discuss your date ideas together.

Best Wishes,

      You are completely right regarding..."Also remember to call your date to make plans rather than messaging or emailing ..." Voice is very important. Great exposition!
