5 Unconventional First Date Ideas
So you’ve finally asked out that girl or guy you’ve had your eye on the past several weeks. Good work! Now comes the hard part: Planning your very first date.
We know you want it to be unforgettable. So here are a five great ways to mark your first date and go above and beyond sitting down for a meal or drink or heading to the cinema.
Visit a Botanical Garden or Museum
Taking your date to a beautiful botanical garden or a great museum can be a fantastic way to spend a first date. Both activities involve a bit of movement so you’re not stuck staring at each other the whole time while still giving you a chance to have conversations. Even better is that you’ll get a chance to see some cool stuff.
Mini Golf or Bowling
Low impact leisure activities can be awesome venues for a first date. Much like the aforementioned botanical gardens and museums, activities such as putt putt golfing or lawn or ten-pin bowling give you a chance to do something fun while still providing time for discussion.
Head to a Market
You never quite know what you’re going to get at a market. Sometimes the items on offer could be awesome. Other times it can be all rocks and no diamonds. It’s this unpredictability that makes markets a gold mine for conversation. Whether it’s the people mulling about or the different finds you unearth as you sort through the rubble, a market is a great first date idea.
Take a Cooking Class
This is a great alternative to just grabbing lunch or dinner on a first date. Heading to a group cooking class together provides you a shared experience that can be a platform for further hanging out afterward.
Visit a Brewery
You don’t have to be a party animal to have a great time during a first date. No matter what the time of the year, you can visit a brewery, if you both appreciate a good drink. Sip on your favourite beers and ciders and have some hearty conversations!
