Great Date Ideas


It is really easy to fall into a rut in your dating life especially if you have been dating the same person for a long time. You love the intimacy and the security of being with that one person you adore and feel comfortable with. You know she loves you and accepts the weird things about you so that's worth fighting to keep.

So coming up with great date ideas can become a "mission impossible" if you keep going back to the same well for fresh stuff. So the key is find new wells of new ideas for dates that will be unique, full of fun and dates that are an adventure every time you go out together.

Getting outside your comfort zone is the key to making any date an

adventure. As you have gotten to know each other, there are things you both have dreamed of doing but maybe were a bit timid to take them on. Well, be an inspiration to each other to get out there on a date and tackle those challenges together.

Maybe he has always wanted to face the challenge of a white water rafting trip. But propelling down a rapidly moving mountain river with only you, your oars and each other to keep from crashing on the rocks can be pretty darn scary. That is the key to making each date an adventure. By facing that fear, getting the training and learning how to go down that river together, it will be the adventure of a lifetime and a date that will be the furthurest thing possible from boring or humdrum.

To find great date ideas, you have to look outside of the categories of what most of us call "dates" and do things together that are new and exciting and scratch that itch to explore the world but to do it with your sweetheart.

Maybe she has always had the urge to perform on stage in an amateur play. Getting out there on stage with an audience watching and becoming someone else is both exciting and terrifying. So why not do it together? And when that opening night comes and goes and all your hard work and rehearsal pays off when both of you do great on stage, you can add that date to one of the great ones of your dating history.

Finding great date ideas might also be a matter of just keeping your ears open and your radar open for outstanding new things to do. Of course the internet is bursting with fun ideas you can find just by "Googling" for new date themes to try.

But also listen to your friends and brainstorm with others who are trying hard to find dates that are new and fun and exciting. But by making it your hobby and your passion to make each date an adventure, you are telling your sweetheart that life with her is an adventure and that she can look to you to always make sure the excitement never leaves your love life.

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!).
