I stumbled on this post about date ideas that are likely to create chemistry.
I used to love shopping dates. It's so random; especially if you're shopping somewhere that has a variety of shops all within walking distance. I went on more than one shopping date with Big - including several where I was Christmas shopping and looking for something specific - and we always had fun.
Another favorite date of mine is a museum. It triggers some fantastic conversation, and is also great for people watching. I'm not big on the idea of group-eating, but the article mentions an us-against-the-world type of mentality - people watching will get that going.
Dinner is a fine dinner idea...but I prefer not to do that for a first date. I've been on those dates where you know within a few minutes that it isn't going anywhere...but there you are, trapped in a booth. No thanks.
Same goes for movies; a perfectly fun idea, but probably not until after you've had few dates with the guy. There's no real way to get to know anyone in a theater. Though, if you must go to a movie, you can pay attention to where he likes to sit, how early he likes to get there - and his choice in movie snack. All important to know.
If weather is permitting, amusement parks, fairs and festivals can also make a fun date. Something different, a little fun - and maybe you can win him a prize. Plus, if you still like each other after dealing with crowds, walking and over-priced junk food all day - maybe there really is something there.
I might be looking for some date ideas in the near future, so I thought I'd ask....
What are some of your favorite date ideas?
