Chicago Date Ideas


There is more to tapping the tremendous dating potential of a fast moving town like Chicago than being able to sing the "My Kind of Town" song. Chicago is a tough, fast moving and exciting city that offers so many interesting diversions for you to include in your dating plans.

So when you have the chance to go on a date there, make sure your Chicago date ideas include things that just are not available in any other city in the world.

Chicago boasts some of the most delicious food in the world. Chicago pizza or hot dogs are delicacies that are talked about by visitors from Hong Kong to Hackensack. So if you want to get the night off on the right foot, make your dinner choice someplace unique to the Windy City.

If you and your date love sports, there is something to do any month of the year in Chicago. This active town is host to some of the best professional sports teams anywhere and a fan base whose devotion to their team is so well known that a Saturday Night Live recurring skit was devoted to it. So what could be more fun than to take your date to a basketball game or football game right in the heart of Chicago and join everyone else in chanting for "Da Bulls" or "Da Bears"?

The choices for a night on the town are diverse and fun and should give you enough Chicago date ideas to keep you and your sweetheart going for a year. For comedy, the famous Second City Comedy group is one of the oldest and best respected groups in the country. Many people think the Saturday Night Live team is the best of the best but many years that TV show drew their best talent from Second City. So by taking your date for a night of laughs at Second City, you are watching tomorrow's stars today.

The night life that explodes from every city street of Chicago is truly amazing. There is every kind of music for you and your date to enjoy. Whether your Chicago date ideas include a rock and roll show, an opera or some gentle but thought provoking folk music, all of that is available in Chicago. Also keep in mind that the Jazz life in Chicago is so active and vibrant that Chicago Jazz and blues is its own genre strong enough to even compete with New Orleans.

A day date in Chicago can be filled with fun running all over this big exciting city. If you have a favorite Chicago movie or TV show, its fun to trace the steps of that movie and find sites that you recognize from the silver screen. So whether that means driving the streets that The Blues Brothers raced, pretending you are in a Ferrari at night like Tom Cruse did in Risky Business or finding that exact spot to sing Twist and Shout like Ferris Bueller did, there are plenty of fun locations in Chicago to look at for an interesting movie based theme date.

When you have a great town like Chicago at your feet, there should never be a weekend where there isn't something new and fun going on in town. Whether its yacht races on the lake or a new art opening at the Chicago Institute of Art or another big game for one of the great sports franchises in this town, there is always something fun to do in the Windy City.

So grab your lover by the hand and hit the streets. And don't forget that Chicago is also one of the most romantic cities in the world as well. So you can have excitement, fun, adventures and still fall in love with each other along the way. There is no better way to spend a date than that.

Dating Tip #1

Be Prepared - Some great dates are the ones that are spontaneous, but if you make every date spontaneous then things are bound to go wrong! Take the time to think through your date, plan for any problems like taking an umbrella with you if it is a long walk to the car and the sky looks bleak, or make sure that the restaurant you are going to does not have a hen night on when you are going for a quiet romantic meal...

Dating Tip #2

Chivalry Is A Must - If you are a man then you should be chivalrous and hold the door for your date, let her order first, pull out her chair - be a gentleman! If you are a woman then you have to let him! It is no wonder that the old fashioned manners and politeness are dying out when people are so stubborn they think it is wrong to let others hold the door or pay the bill!

Dating Tip #3

Make Eye Contact - Although some people feel uncomfortable with making eye contact, it is eye contact that shows you are interested in your date. People tend to keep eye contact when listening but not when talking to someone, try to make eye contact whenever possible (if you are interested in them that is!).
