The first date with someone is always the same old affair. Drinks, or a meal, and certainly after a few months of being on the dating treadmill it can get very mundane. Going through the same routine of doing your hair and getting your nice light blue suit on, it becomes an absolute bore, which is a shame because the person you're on the date with is probably lovely.
The solution is to mix up your dating activities a bit. The dinner and drinks routine is old hat now, and there are plenty of things to do outside of that, and it certainly would make a date more interesting if you find you’ve got nothing to talk about! Check out these suggestions.
This could be the decider for many dates. If you’re both looking to expand your minds and get some culture in, going to the museum would be a good step to take. I know many history and art buffs that relish in going on this type of date. And it’s usually a cheap date too. If you wanted you could buy a coffee afterward. The quiet environment of a museum helps for lulls in the conversation too so you can think up what to say next.
A Supercross Event
If your date is an energy fiend and likes to go to outdoor events and sports, you can't get more exciting than a Supercross motorbike event. The roar of the crowd coupled with the thrum of the engine is a great atmosphere to take in on a third or fourth date. There are many events dotted around the world that Monster Energy present and the excitement in watching the fast-paced race compensates for conversation dips, and you will get a great idea of if your date is a keeper if they enjoy these high-octane events!
A Burlesque Show
If you tire of the normal comedy show nights out on dates where the comic picks on you and asks your date if they are enjoying, it can make for a really stressful night out. There are other ways to enjoy a live event without being made to feel embarrassed, and if you enjoy alternative live events, a burlesque show is a great way to spend a night out. It is different enough, and sensual enough, to get you or your partner in the mood.
Spend The Night In An Unusual Place
Hotels are very expensive at the best of times, so why don’t you try and enjoy a night in somewhere with a bit more quirkiness to it. You could try a luxury treehouse, a “boatel” (a boat hotel, of course), or even a luxury cowshed! Or if you really want to get away from people, the simplest and cheapest answer is to buy a tent and go camping. If you both like getting out in nature, this is simple, and it can help to solidify a relationship while adding a sense of danger to it. Going on a date can be stressful whether it’s your first or thirty-first, so pick something interesting.
If you leave home for an office each day, you’re going to need to take a lot of items with you; a laptop, files, lunch, phone and accessories, makeup, wallet, even a spare set of clothes if you’re heading out to a bar or the gym when you’re done. So, a roomy work bag is a necessity. That work bag doesn’t have to be a standard leather briefcase, though. You don’t have to be the same as everyone else – these gorgeous alternatives will give you a fashion edge, as well as being perfectly practical. Read more
If you’re a regular gym user, you won’t have failed to notice how most – if not all – of the other people working out around you are listening to music. You probably do it too. What is it about music, though that makes a work out so much more palatable? What does it do to our brains – and our bodies – to help us push through? Read more
When I watched Field of Dreams, the quote I left that movie with was "If you build it they will come." Once the baseball field was built, the ghosts found it. When the World Wide Web was new, that was fairly true. Since the mid-1990's, there has been tremendous and explosive growth in the web. Consider for a moment: there are an estimated 612 million websites in the world, but only 185 million websites are active according to TechLogon.com. Read more
