How often have you sat wondering, truly clueless after finalizing a date about what really to do this time? Ever thought of a billion ideas but couldn’t think of a way to make them special? There is always the difference of a tiny effort in a normal date and a perfect one. So, flush your worries down the drain, here’s a list of 10 innovative ideas for a perfect date! Read along and pick your way to a mind blowing & memorable date!
As John Steinbeck has said, “People don’t take trips, trips take people”, there is nothing that is going to be as memorable and joyous as a mini road trip to some place a little farther than the place you usually go-to for dates! So, the focus here lies on the trip rather than the destination but that certainly does not mean that you overlook its importance. Nothing like a bummer if you have a gala time while driving to the place for what might seem like 3 hours only to reach somewhere that brings your enthusiasm on ground level! So, do your homework and set off with your partner while enjoying a mutually decided playlist or just chattering about anything and everything, all at once!
In today’s sitcom and television program obsessed world, there couldn’t be a better idea than to spend some quality time sitting on a couch with plenty of popcorn along with some drinks, while having a series marathon! An entirely pocket friendly, privacy giving plan that excludes all awkward outdoor situations and confines you to the comfort of your home or theirs! As they say, how a person is in their home says a lot about them and with this chance being given to you, you are bound to get to interact with them in ways that would not have been possible in any public place.
What is the one thing that both sides fear the most? Well, yes, of course, running out of things to talk about or in some severe circumstances, not knowing what to do! This option has it all sorted for you! Going for a session to learn something that is new for both of you is perhaps the best and fool proof way to spend your valuable time together! The activity could be anything ranging from skating, painting to even pottery! What fun will it be to figure it out together and being involved in something that will eventually help you strengthen your bond by helping you know each other even better!
So, yes, going out for movie, later to be followed by food is like ‘BASIC’ when it comes to dating and however basic it might be, it still remains a classic. Then, how exactly can you modify this basic classic date into something that makes it totally out of the league? How about joining the perks of the former with a totally different setting? Ditch the crowd at multiplexes and make your own screening space at your rooftop or backyard, add in a couple of comforting cushions, a tub of popcorn, some fairy lights, a projector and voila! A perfect date ready!
Why do all your dates have to be in the evening or during the middle of the day? Do you know the most beautiful cafés or most sought after place– that are usually so full by the time you get there that you actually have to consider shifting your plan– are empty when they open up early in the morning? Yes! We are suggesting you a morning date! The best time to go out to the locations whose beauty gets the add-on of a ‘crowd’ that lessens its spirit after a certain time. Imagine being there with almost no one around, having the view all by yourself and then heading to some café that just opened for the day and having the privilege to be their first customer in morning. A totally off track, innovative and perfect idea to make your date more happening!
This one is for the mystery lovers. The idea is to dig out a place in your city that is not as popular as the usual places. A place of history, a lesser known but classic café, a house that got turned into a museum – it can be anything! It all depends on your skill of surfing the internet or your knowledge of the area; nothing could be more exciting than a date like this!
If you don’t shy away from experimenting and are always on a look out for something ‘different’ and ‘exciting’ to do – then this is something you would love to plan! All your dates don’t have to be the same old Girl-Meets-Boy-Meets-Food-and-Talks when you can actually book something fun for a day out that makes the adrenaline in your body rush! From rock climbing arenas, paint ball to trekking to whatever best adventure sport your city can provide you with, dig it out and go! It is proven that doing an adventurous activity together strengthens one’s bond manifolds! So, Get, Set and Go!
This one is for the duo that share the love for travelling and exploration! The idea behind this is that you don’t need to go out of station to actually feel like you are out of station. It goes without saying that sometimes, the city we live in is overlooked the most by us (exceptions are there too, of course). We are so used to its nuances that we become blind to the very same characteristics that draw other people towards it. So, here you take up roles of ‘pretend tourists’, gear up with your maps and lists of places to cover in a day and set off on the most exciting date ever! Imagine the fun of hopping on and off of public transport and covering an array of places that you almost couldn’t fit in with your usual schedule! End the day with a dinner and drinks, this is one of those dates that you would see yourself boasting off the most in coming future!
Now this one is a pretty laid back plan, quite literally. Your first aim is to find the perfect spot, rather say, the perfect and ‘comfortable’ spot with a ‘view’ because what is stargazing about otherwise? This one assures you more in less, you could have a comfy bedding laid out at the spot or even have just a sheet, the date could either be planned with a playlist with soothing tunes or you could let the natural rustling of leaves, whistling winds or sound of silence enthrall you with its melodies under a star lit sky! Make sure you check the weather predictions to go smooth with this one.
The one with a surprise that none of you are aware of. Well, sometimes when you realize that the bonding is so great between you two that you have been on most of the usual dates already and there is nothing left as such then the usual catch up. However, trust us when we say this, even when you run out of all things, there always is an extra card, an extra door, a box with a big question mark in it making way for your ‘Unplanned Endeavor’. There are only too many a ways to go about this one. You can either write down random things on chits and pick them up and see what it says (much like a bucket list, only the level is doable in a day’s time) or just head out, take random turns and see where you end up. Not knowing and still doing has a different rush all together, you might end up having one of your best dates ever!
