Dating ideas - hangn' out together
A fresh outlook on romance, dating ideas under $30 - romantic hotspots and tips on how to keep your relationship interesting.
Going on a first date to the movies and dinner is the most common choice for first dates in America according to relationships guru, Diane Bishop. But is dinner and a movie the best choice?
Sitting face to face for an hour at a restaurant with someone you hardly know is not the ideal way to casually get to know someone. And sitting next to this person for 2 hours without being able to communicate during the movie doesn't seem like a sensible way to find out more about each others personalities. So why is dinner and a movie the most popular first date choice in the world? Answer: habit, and 'playing it safe'
The thing is, singles who are dating around and looking for a spark don't want to 'play it safe' We are all looking for someone who will make a lasting impression, someone that can show their individual qualities and won't hide behind the patterns of society.
Perhaps you have already met the love of your life, and dinner at the same restaurants or take out from the same Thai place every Friday night is starting to become a 'habit'- you need to broaden your horizons before your relationship gets stuck in 2nd gear.
Here's something you may never have thought of, it's cheap, very engaging and will show your date you have an interesting personality. The relationships game called - The Do Tell Game - which uses cards to prompt you to talk about certain things that are important to you and is a fantastic way to break the ice. The Do Tell Game is played with a deck of cards so you can take it on a date in any environment. Grab a blanket, a bottle of wine, sit by the lake and probe each others mind with this cool dating game.
Try this dating game out. Probably not so much for a first date, but hey, stranger things have happened! 'Nookii' provides participants with a timer, and the rules of Nookkii state that you must pleasure your partner for the length of time as set by the timer rules. Each person is dealt cards that instruct the other person to perform an act of pleasure on the other player. The "mmm" cards initiate tame instructions such as a back rub or foot massage, and as the game progresses the "ooh" cards start to turn up the heat - get the idea?
Many of us (most males) assume the stereotypical type of date such as an expensive restaurant and expensive wine is the only solution to successfully romancing your date. This couldn't be further from the truth. Just ask any woman - would she prefer going on a date to an expensive restaurant, or grabbing a bottle of champagne, a snack and a blanket, then lying under the stars at night at the beach or some other secluded romantic spot.
