Some great first date ideas

Planning your first date can be incredibly nerve-wracking. The excitement almost boils over into paranoia – are you wearing the right thing, will they still like you by the end of the evening, will you still like them, will there be more dates afterwards? So many questions start flying around in your head. The truth is there is no real answer to any of those questions, who knows if you are going to be visiting to look at Diamond Engagement Rings in the future. But what you can be sure of is that as long as you are yourself you will have a good time, all-be-it a slightly nervous time.

If you are looking for something a bit more unusual than the standard meal or cinema trip for your first date, take a look at some of these ideas:

  • Movies in the great outdoors.

If you are your date are movie lovers than spending some of your first date watching a film, you both love or perhaps a new box office hit is a great way to spend your time together. But in a bid to make your date more memorable you could look for one of the many locations that offer outdoor cinema experiences. You will often find that these are usually older films and often cult classics but watching a film from your car in a drive-in cinema, or sitting on a picnic blanket surrounded by some good food is a great way to spend an evening.

  • Scavenger hunts

These are become more and more popular with people looking for something to do on a date, particularly first dates when the conversation can be slightly awkward until you both relax a little. Taking part in an activity that requires you to work together to solve the clues automatically gives you something to talk about. They are incredibly fun, and you can find a variety of scavenger hunts available from those at designated sites to ones that you can print off and travel to your chosen location. That way you can pick one that you know will have a nice pub at the end that you can enjoy a meal at.

  • Over the bridge and through the windmill

Crazy golf was the first date location for many people in the past and with the rise of crazy golf venues across the country it is an option for couples that is making a fast reappearance. With companies like Mr. Mulligan’s that have indoor crazy golf in a variety of locations, you could be laughing your way through your first date (and in a good way) before enjoy something to eat and drink to end the night.
