Going on a first date with your crush but don’t know what to plan? First dates are stressful and come with the pressure of making a good first impression. What you’ll do and where you’ll go can make or break the date, so you need to plan ahead.
The two most important things on a first date are to get to know each other and have fun. And what better way to do both than going to a comedy show, taking a mini-trip out of town, or volunteering at an animal shelter?
Here are five unique fun date night activities you’ve never thought of — that will impress your date.
1. Go for a Mini Trip
They say couples that travel together have the most fun together. They also learn about each other, especially when things don’t go according to plan.
For your next date, plan a mini trip to a nearby town, vacation spot, beach, or the countryside. Use this time alone to get to know each other better if you’ve just started dating.
Plan a couple of fun activities for couples, such as wine tasting, exploring the town’s coffee shops, watching the sunset together, or dancing.
2. See a Comedy Show
Laughing together is the most beautiful thing in a relationship. If you’re looking for date night ideas where the only goal is having fun, go see a comedy show.
For a heartfelt laugh, see a live standup comedy act or a theater show. Funny movies are great if you want a more chilled date night. Another great idea is to set up a movie projector in your backyard and invite your date for a movie night under the stars.
3. Try an Escape Room
Looking for more creative date ideas? Take your date to an escape room. It’s a little unconventional for a date, but something you’ll both remember.
This is a great opportunity to see how your date handles stressful and fast-paced situations. By planning your escape together, you’ll discover how you work as a team and develop your communication skills.
Escape rooms aren’t for everyone, so make sure your date is on board before you book.
4. Go to the Local Animal Shelter
If you’re looking for truly unique date ideas, why not take your date to an animal shelter? This way, you’ll get to take care of animals in need and spend time together doing something useful for your community.
The animals and shelter workers will thank you, and you’ll become closer, happier, and more fulfilled as a couple.
5. Plan a Picnic Somewhere Unusual
Picnics are the perfect fun date night ideas for enjoying each other’s company over homemade food. They’re less expensive than a restaurant, and you can enjoy fresh air, the warmth of the sun and the chirping of the birds.
For a more unique experience, instead of your local park, plan a picnic somewhere unusual like a rooftop, a nearby beach or your own backyard.
Whether it’s your first date or you’ve been dating for a while, these fun date night activities are a unique way to grow your relationship.
From taking long walks on the beach at sunset to spending a day with cute animals at the shelter, enjoying your time together is all that matters.
