Winter Date Ideas


When the cold winds blow and the snow begins to stack up outside, that is no reason that the romance cannot heat up your relationship with your sweetheart. There are dozens of great winter date ideas that are better BECAUSE it is cold and snowy outside and will be memorable and very romantic dates.

Snow itself is a romantic and fun part of the weather that changes the way we all think of the world for the time it is on the ground. The very fact that it literally changes the color of the world from the drab browns of fall to a pristine white is fun and romantic. Snow has a beauty all its own that brings out the poetic and romantic in us so it can be used to bring out the romantic side of your sweetheart and you as well.

Part of the fun of snow is it makes kids of everyone. So some great date ideas involve getting out in the snow and just becoming a big kid all over again. Go sledding, build a snowman, get in a snowball fight or just wallow in the white stuff making snow angels. Then when you come in all frosty and covered with ice crystals, if you have thought ahead and had the fire going in the fireplace and hot chocolate ready to enjoy, its time for some serious cuddling and snuggling to get warmed up after a fun romp outside.

If seeing snow on the ground brings out the romance in the heart of your lover, a gentle but long lasting snowfall is ten times as effective. So if that is the setting for your next outing, there are winter date ideas that can turn a normal date into a hallmark card in no time. Take a horse drawn sleigh ride through the park and just let the snow fall on you all it wants to. Or go for a leisurely drive to enjoy all the beautiful Christmas lights in town that are made even more spectacular by the sight of white flakes from heaven drifting down over those colorful displays.

There are lots of winter date ideas that work very well around the holidays. You can team up with friends or people at your local church to go Christmas caroling for an evening. In addition to enjoying the look of joy on the faces of families in your neighborhood, take your troupe to an old folk's home. The smiles and hugs you get from those delighted senior citizens will almost beat the smooches you get from your date later that night because you did something so special and sweet together.

But not all winter dates have to be about fun. One of the great joys of the season is the fun of doing something for other people. So you might surprise your sweetheart one night when you pick her up for your regular Friday date and announce that this time you are going to go serve dinner at the homeless shelter or distribute toys at the children's hospital to sick and needy kids.

If ever you got the chance to see your sweetheart glow with happiness and joy, it will be when she gets the chance to give a toy to a sweet child fighting cancer and see that child smile and laugh and give her a hug for sharing the season with a little one in need. And the glow that this act of charity puts into the heart of your sweetie will result in a very happy and romantic time for both of you when you get home and think about how fun it is to give fun to others. And that is a winter date that may be the most meaningful one of them all.

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!).
