3 Great First Date Ideas

January 12, 2022

If you think about it, first dates are more important than people think: how well this goes will determine whether a second date is still in the cards. Most people go out for coffee or watch a movie. If you want some great first date ideas, here are three unique ones that are worth trying out: 

Play Board Games

Contrary to popular belief, board games aren’t just for nerds and there’s more than just Monopoly. Board games don’t always have boards and there are tons of entertaining ones that are specifically designed for couples to play. It’s a fun, unconventional way to get to know each other. For one thing, you won’t be awkward about asking each other questions when you’re doing it as a game! 

Go Volunteering

Enjoying yourselves together is one thing, but bringing joy to others is quite another! However, volunteer dates are more than just a way you can make your first date more meaningful and purposeful. It’s also a way to determine whether you share the same morals and values. What’s more, you can learn other things about your date as you observe them interacting with volunteers or with people outside of their usual circle. 

Take a Photography Walking Tour 

Walking around the city with your date is a cheap but enjoyable way to spend time and get to know each other. Make this more memorable by taking photos as you go along. Not only will you have souvenirs, but you’ll also get to see how you view the world through your photos. 

It’s a Date!

Fun, unique, and affordable, these are just some of the great first-date ideas you can try out. You’ll learn more about your date this way than by just going to the movies or trying to get a conversation going over coffee.
