Check out this guest post from Boris for some new date ideas. I always encourage couples to go on dates as regularly as they can.
Restaurant, cinema, coffee – it’s all the same! Why not try something different for your next date to switch things up a bit? Here are four ideas for your next date that are out of the box.
Try An Escape Room
Escape rooms are the ideal place for a date – if you haven’t heard of them, escape rooms involve you and your team taking part in a variety of puzzles and riddles to move through the room and eventually escape.
This is a fairly new activity but has proven to be popular with couples, friends and family alike. Places like Puzzleworks offer escape rooms with exciting themes, like “The Hospital” or “The Vault”, meaning you get your adrenaline pumping.
It’s also a great show of teamwork and gives you the chance to see your date in all their glory, whether that’s using their own intelligence or by showing their foolish side. It also gives you the chance to show off a little too. Trust us when we say this will keep you guys talking for hours after!
Visit A Planetarium
We all know that scene in movies, where a couple is gazing up at the stars, realizing they love each other. Stars are incredibly romantic, so visiting a planetarium is the perfect setting for those hopeless romantics.
You can do a bit of research and point out constellations to your date, and perhaps find yourself much deeper into a conversation, giving you the perfect opportunity to learn more about who your date really is, as well as ponder life’s questions.
This is a great date idea for those who are looking to really deepen your relationship and give a romantic setting to woo your date.
Explore A Weird Museum
Whether you love them or loathe them, museums can actually be a great place to spend a date, despite what you might think.
We’re not talking any old museum, though – we’re talking one of the weirdest and craziest museums you can find. The bread museum? The celebrity lingerie hall of fame? The museum of bad art? All of these are genuine places and are bound to fill any awkward silences, and keep them filled for the next few dates.
If you’re looking for a date that’s unforgettable, a weird museum is just what you need, and they tend to crop up all over the place, meaning it’s not hard to find one right on your doorstep.
A Haunted House
This is a great way to throwback to your childhood, running through ghosts and ghouls as you make your way through a creepy old mansion. If you’re looking to get the adrenaline pumping, look no further – haunted houses are the perfect place to get a fright and be able to comfort your date as you protect them from the spooky figure around the corner.
Whether you’re leading the way for your date or cowering behind them, this is the perfect place to have a laugh, even if it is at your date’s expense.
These four ideas are the perfect way to create a date neither of you will ever forget.
