Unique Date Night Ideas for Couples
Explore Your City
It doesn’t matter if you’ve lived in your city for 10 years or 10 months, there is always something new to discover. From a local brewery to an independent art gallery, look into some of the unknown and secret hotspots in your city or town and take your date there. You may just find a new go-to spot for fun!
Learn to Do Something Together
Learning something new is a great bonding experience, and there are many options available for a date night, such as:
Dancing Lessons– Dancing lessons will not only give you a life skill for later on, but it will also provide an opportunity for some physical contact on the date!
Cooking Lessons– Everyone likes a person who can cook, and taking a cooking lesson together is a great way to create something fun and edible
Artistic Class – This can range from pottery to painting to flower arranging. Being creative and trying something new would be a good way to break a rut with your long-term partner, or to break some of the awkward tension of a first date
Enjoying some sort of live entertainment can make for an enjoyable date. Lots of bars have live bands playing, or if you are not really into the bar scene you may find a local coffee shop that also has live entertainment.
Other live entertainment ideas include:
- Local theatre performance
- A book reading
- Sporting Events
Having a couples spa treatment is a great idea for long-term couples. The day to day stresses may be getting in the way of your romance and relationship, and spending a few hours relaxing together, without any outside distractions, can help reset the stress level you are both feeling. You can enjoy anything from a couples massage to a soak in the hot tubs. This may not be a great idea for a first date though unless you and your date feel very comfortable with each other already.
If you do not know your date very well yet and are nervous about trying something a little out of the box, then sticking to the basics is great too. A great meal and a night of dancing, or the classic dinner and a movie are great safe options for date planning. Couples that have been together for a while but have been neglecting their love life would benefit from a return to the basics as well.
There are countless date ideas out there, from lessons to live entertainment. Be sure to keep your date's personality in mind when making plans so that you do not pick something they will find uncomfortable.
