5 date ideas for inspiration – Zoosk

  1. Plan a movie night at home

Movies are fun as they are shorter than series and give you time to spend with your date, discuss the different scenes and share the views. 

However, if you don’t want to go back to the movies yet, you can still have a similar experience at home. Make a tub of popcorn, grab some Twizzlers, and find something fresh to watch on-demand or via streaming. I’d suggest finding something romantic or something you both love to watch. Also, prepare the couch to bear the load of whatever may happen later… hehe

  1. Candlelight dinner

Dinner is a great mode to bond with a new potential suitor because it’s when you can both get a rough idea about the standard/ choices of each other. And if you both are going on a date for Nth time then candlelight dinner is a classic!

Having your partner all dressed up in the best attire with that graceful gestures can make your mood and your night memorable. 

  1. Take a stroll

No matter if a person has high standards or is an unromantic one, everyone loves to walk down the silent road especially at night. This is one of the most romantic dates and is loved by 99% of the girls (in my opinion). 

If it’s your first time then walking side by side can help alleviate some of the nervousness and discomfort that sometimes accompany first date talk.

  1. Play a game

It is good to make things interesting by playing games like truth and dare, Q & A or trivia questions. You can check out our blog on the same and get some PERFECT questions to ask. 

  1. Bookstore date

Go to a bookshop and look for something to read. Bookstore dates are wonderful first date ideas since they allow you to explore and discuss books. Introduce your date to your favourites and let them do so as well. 

However, if you aren’t a big fan of books then prefer going to watch a comedy show. 

What are the things to remember when on a date?

I’d like to remind you of a few key points to remember if you want your first date to go without a glitch!

  1. Please don’t be late. Although this is a standard rule, many people still fail to follow it. Allow ample time to prepare and be at the site 10-15 minutes early. 
  2. Make sure you’re not overdressed. 
  3. Talking about your ex may give the impression to your date that you haven’t moved on yet. So, don’t talk about your ex.
  4. Propose the date to pay or split the bill. If a man insists on paying, don’t debate; just let them finish the task. 
  5. Try not to get too serious or personal while asking your dates about their interests, occupations, and hobbies. 

Note:  Dates are supposed to be opportunities for you to get to know each other better before committing to a relationship or casual… whoops, I mean it depends on what you both seek.

What are some out of the box date ideas for the Nth date?

I totally understand if you’re sick of date ‘stereotypes’ like going out to dinner, seeing a movie, and/or visiting the bar. If you take the time to look, you’ll find a wealth of information. 

Cities have significantly improved their ability to provide truly distinctive experiences which indeed will give you a memorable moment with your partner. 

Some out of the box ideas are:

  1. Go to the flea market or chor Bazar
  2. Cook a new dish together (can be any traditional dish of another country)
  3. Go on a long drive
  4. Join a sports club
  5. Go to a mall aka game zone
  6. Go on a train trip
  7. Enjoy the metro ride at night
  8. Go to the museum
  9. Get your live painting done
  10. Go on the rooftop.
  11. Count stars

…but most of all

Putting efforts from your end will make things smoother. So, get inspired and prepare for a memorable date.
