Out-Of-The-Box First Date Ideas Which Do Not Involve Bars
As dating has become a very common mode of socializing, one more dilemma has arisen. Deciding a place for the first date has become a real issue. People get engrossed in looking for a middle ground when it comes to both their choices. So, here I am, back again to the rescue with some out-of-the-box first date ideas that do not involve sitting at bars.
Food Festival Or Street Fair
Now who doesn't love a nice food festival or a fair around? Both of you will get a chance to try a variety of food and beverages in one area itself, and also get to talk to your date! On the other side, if the date is not going well, it's easy to orchestrate a ‘run-in' with a friend as well!
Bowling shoes, rumbling noises, beer and greasy bar snacks… sounds romantic, doesn't it? But no, that's not why I'm suggesting bowling! It's easier to break the ice with such activities, and it also allows for conversation and fun regardless of your skill level! If you want to make it even better, place a lame bet on the game as well (like whoever gets the most gutter balls).
Whether you sing Metallica or Pink Floyd, it doesn't matter! Just go all out on your date by going to a karaoke night! Karaoke is an awesome option for all of you, no matter how you sing. It helps you open up quickly and urges you to be outgoing, real fast. Don't sing too many romantic numbers, though.
You don't really have to blow an insane amount of money to watch some high-profile concert. There are many restaurants, clubs, amphitheaters and parks which have events like live jazz nights, where you get to see amazing local talent. If you don't know where to go, just Google it!
Three-Course Dinner… At Different Places!
Yes, you read that right! Sitting in one place for a full three-course meal can cause intense lethargy, but how about heading to three different places for each course? Interesting, right? You could go to a Chinese restaurant for your appetizers, then to an Italian restaurant for your mains, then to a waffle café for dessert! Sounds crazy, right? It gives you the option to eat multiple cuisines in just one meal, and also to have a little fun running between places.
The Good Old Coffee Walk
This one is what we would call as one of the ‘classics'. Grab a cup of coffee each to-go, and just wander around as you have a nice talk with each other. To make things even more interesting, venture into a neighborhood unknown to both of you! This will also add that little adventurous touch to your date, as you also get a chance to explore a new area while getting to know someone.
The Ever-Classic Gazing At The Sunset
While the sunrise is an energetic time, a sunset has a calm, soothing charm around it. Nothing beats the feeling of grabbing some light snacks and a beverage of your choice. Couple this with getting to know a new person and talking endlessly. Paradise, I must say! Add a nice glass of wine to this equation, and give the perfect end to your perfect day.
Here's my list of first date ideas for you all. Amazing, aren't they? I'd want to try all of them someday too, and you should as well! Feel free to leave any more first date ideas in the comments below!
