Need some Fun Date Ideas? You’ve come to the right place. A lot of the fun dating ideas listed below are not recommended as a first date unless you know the person very well or have known them for a long time. But if you have had a few dates and want to really impress, the list below should be just what your looking for!
It is important to do your research before deciding on a date location or activity, consider the following factors before making your choice:
• What do they like to do in their spare time?
• Have they mentioned how they’ve always wanted to do something but just haven’t got round to it?
• What do you think they would like to do as a date?
• Are they adventurous? If yes, pick something with a sense of adventure!
• Are they shy or outgoing? If shy, opt for a date where it will just be the two of you with no interruptions or other people around. (Not recommended for the first or second date with a woman as you have not built up enough trust yet)
Fun Date Ideas – Day Time
A Unique Restaurant
Go for a restaurant with a relaxed environment, great ambience and serving great food. Do an internet search for restaurant reviews on restaurants in your area.
A Coffee shop
There’s no better way to have a good chat and to get to know someone than over a drink in a relaxed setting.
A Stylish Café
An excellent idea is to take your date to a stylish Café for a drink or lunch and get to know one another.
My favourite choice. Women in particular love to take a walk on the beach, especially at sun set (top tip – research the sun set time!)
A Walk in the Park (with picnic optional)
This is good as a first date idea. Take your date for a walk in the park, when you find a nice spot, get out the blanket and sit down and relax; talk, get to know one another. For lunch, either pack a picnic or go into a local restaurant to really finish the date on a good note.
This can be a great fun date idea, especially if they are an acedemic type and have told you that they enjoy museums. But you must hit the right topic with your date or they could be bored stiff!
You can never go wrong with a picnic, but you must find out what your date likes to eat beforehand or you could be eating alone. Don’t forget the strawberries and cream; )
This is usually a great fun dating idea for both of you as there will be music to suit all tastes, food, drink, shopping and all sorts of other wacky and wonderful things!
An Amusement Park
Fun, adrenaline packed with nearly everything you need for a good day out. But be careful with this choice as not everyone likes amusement parks! Some people think they are for kids.
A Shopping Trip
Ask her to help you pick out a new shirt etc, this forms a good bond and implants ‘partner patterns’
between the pair of you.
Fun Date Ideas – Something Adventurous!
This is where the list gets a little crazy, be careful with these choices as you need to be sure that your date will enjoy it, adventurous dates are certainly not for everyone and should generally not be chosen as a first date idea but they will make excellent fun date ideas.
A Hot Air Balloon ride (with picnic)
The absolute perfect date for a lot of people particularly daters over 30. This just shouts peacefulness, grace and elegance, you cannot fail to be impressed by this!
High energy, adrenaline and action packed day out, it’s great fun but be warned – it hurts when you get hit. This is definitely not for everyone and certainly not for girly girls.
Although it is just a game, you can’t help but really get into this! It’s great fun and can make a good day or night out if you can overlook all the spotty kids running around like they are Rambo on a do or die mission.
Great fun for all who partake in this sport, guaranteed to be a good day out.
Great fun dating idea and very ‘bonding’ if it just the two of you out on the river or lake. Try to plan a route with lots of beautiful scenery and things to see. Get a double kayak for extra bonding.
White Water rafting
Now this is really adrenaline packed! Not for the faint hearted or a first date that’s for sure!
This can be great fun and I have seen a lot of women doing this and really enjoying themselves, but you have to consider the safety issues when selecting this option as a lot of inexperienced riders get injured (including me and I’m experienced!)
If your date has a diving qualification then this is a must for a date at some stage. The bonding during this activity is so strong as you are both there to take care of one another.
Excellent fun date idea and guaranteed to put a smile on your dates face, I have taken a date on a helicopter ride over the mountains before and I have never seen such a glow from her afterwards.
Great fun! It is better to go with a reputable company and let them organize the day for you as this will include bike hire, equipment (inc helmet), insurance and a fun route! But if you both have the bikes equipment and no how, then… enjoy.
Excellent fun but this can be dangerous, certainly not a good first date idea. Choose an off road route if your date seems adventurous and experienced and a simple flat route if they are a bit nervous and have never been on a quad before. Be extra careful if you choose this option as there are a lot of injuries from this activity each year.
If your date is an outdoors and adventurous person then this will make for a good date! Always check the safety aspects before trekking off into the unknown and make sure you have at least the basic safety equipment.
Exhilarating experience, you appreciate how it feels to be a bird just soaring high above without a care in the world.
You’ve all seen it in the movies but most people have never done this activity. It involves standing on a board in the water whilst hanging on to a rope and being pulled by a boat! Find out if your date can swim first and make sure they are not afraid of water.
The ultimate fun dating idea and most adrenaline packed activity you can possibly do besides a bungy jump. This is both exhilarating and scary at the same time. Everyone should do this once in their life.
