Going out to dinner might be a traditional first date, but having nothing to focus on but each other can be a little awkward with someone you just met. If you’re planning on taking someone out, why not try something a little more fun? Taking in a movie or learning something together can help you both get out of your shell and get to know each other better.
How Can You Have Fun on a First Date?
1. Go to a Movie
Movies might also be a time-tested classic first date, but it is less awkward and more fun than sitting together in a restaurant. With a movie playing, you won't be under as much pressure to make conversation, and you’ll have something in common to talk about. It also naturally opens up other areas of conversation, like what films, books, and TV shows you both enjoy.
2. Take an Art Class
Many small studios and local art organizations offer small, informal classes where you can try your hand at painting, drawing, or even making baskets. This can be a fun opportunity to let your guard down and try something new. Don’t worry if you don’t have any experience or talent. Even if neither of you is particularly good at the project, it can still give you something to laugh about and bond over.
3. Explore a Specialty Bar
Getting drinks is a less formal and easy first date, making it the go-to for many people. Finding a specialty bar in your area can make your first night out memorable, and many areas now offer a variety to choose from. Have some drinks while battling it out on vintage arcade games, or get all dressed up and visit an underground speakeasy. If your date enjoys themselves, having a specialty bar experience makes it easy to plan another outing.
