You’ve been to enough mundane dinner and movie dates, you crave something more. Make dating fun again with these 15 creative date ideas that will help you bond with your partner and bring back the thrill and titillation into your relationship.
Creative Date Ideas #1: Organise board games night
You can play chess or monopoly if you want, but note that the board game industry has exploded! Explore countless fun board games from Catan to Avalon to Cards against Humanity. Play with just your partner or call up close friends for an extremely entertaining evening. Only gets better with wine and snacks!
Creative Date Ideas #2: Take a dance class
Where there is good music, there should be some dancing. Prepare for moments like these by taking your partner for some dance lessons. If gaining the skills to bust a move whenever you need to is not attractive enough, the intense and intimate physical session with your partner should be motivation enough.
Creative Date Ideas #3: Go for a street food hunt
Because life is sweet when food is cheap. Plus, it’s fun to discover new and interesting types of food and vendors.
Creative Date Ideas #4: Go shopping
If he hates shopping, it’s probably because he doesn’t know what to pick out. Choose some clothes for him, and he’ll like it better because he’s doing it with you. And because you have good taste.
Creative Date Ideas #5: Take a weekend trip to somewhere nearby
You want to get away, but you don’t have the time for a huge vacation. Pick a B&B in a town nearby. Maybe you’ll discover some cool restaurants, art, and shops along the way.
Creative Date Ideas #6: Train for a marathon together
And let your training turn into a regular date, since you’ll need to prepare if you’re running a race. Think about how awesome it will feel when you both run your first 5K.
Creative Date Ideas #7: Venture into the kitchen
Especially for busy couples who eat out all the time, preparing a meal together can be a very enjoyable experience. Try cooking something simple though, so that you’re not too focused on the meal prep and can spend more attention on each other. Plus, there’ll be a home-cooked meal at the end of it!
Creative Date Ideas #8: Try a painting class.
If you can’t find one around your area, do it at home! One great thing about this is that the worse you are, the funnier the date will be. Put wine into the picture and you’ll be in for an exhilarating ride.
Creative Date Ideas #9: Have a five-course dinner at different places
Instead of going to one restaurant, pick a bunch of different restaurants to enjoy various courses of your dinner date. So appetizers at one, desserts at another and finish the night off with wine at a nice bar and bistro. It helps if all those places are walking distance from each other, will be a fun night of adventure!
Creative Date Ideas #10: Take a martial arts class together
Not your typical date, get that adrenaline rush along with some techniques in self-defence. As you improve, you can try sparring with your partner. A little competition is always sexy.
Creative Date Ideas #11: Finesse your home bar
Why go out to a bar on a Saturday night when you can DIY at home? Experiment the night away as you and your partner learn how to pour your own cocktails and drink them throughout the process. Now every night can be a night at a cocktail bar.
Creative Date Ideas #12: Go Rock Climbing
If you’ve both got an appetite for adventure and you want to undergo the ultimate “survival test to bring you closer together” dating experience, there’s nothing quite like being suspended from great heights on a harness while you’re clinging on for dear life.
Creative Date Ideas #13: Go Horseback Riding
To emulate some fairy tale romance, spend a day at the stables riding trail horses for the afternoon. If neither of you have much equestrian experience, take a couple of laps around the paddock before trotting out into nature.
Creative Date Ideas #14: See a comedy show
See your favourite comedian, or a roster of up-and-comers — you never know where you’ll be seeing them next. Besides, life can be hard, and you deserve to laugh until your beer comes out your nose.
Creative Date Ideas #15: Host your own walking tour
Take your date on a walking tour of the neighbourhood where you grew up, showing off your elementary school and local haunts along the way. A great way to learn more about each other and discover some romantic hidey holes along the way!
