6 dating ideas – San Francisco News
UNITED STATES — Running out of date ideas? There are many lists and online surveys that include the same old options that everyone has been having for decades, like dinner, drinks, a movie, or a walk.
Whether you’ve recently moved to a new city, perhaps purchasing one of the Charlotte homes for sale, or if you’ve lived in the same city all your life, if it’s time for something different, consider one of these options instead.
Learn new moves
Learning new dance moves with your partner can be a very romantic way to spend time together, especially if you are going to ballroom dancing lessons, perhaps learning the basics of tango, waltz, merengue or salsa. Even if you’re both left feet, it’s still good to be able to laugh together.
Take a cooking class
Cooking classes are becoming more popular than ever and they are also a perfect night for a date. This is a great way to find out if you are truly compatible or if you are getting closer to your partner by combining quality time, teamwork, and enjoyment of the results. Plus, if you’re learning to cook or cook a new dish together, you can cook them for each other on another date. If you prefer something at home, these days you will find plenty of YouTube channels for you to watch and learn.
While drive-ins are always fun for date nights, theaters have become scarce. If there isn’t one near you, how about bringing it to your garden? All you need is a projector, a blank sheet of paper, some rope, and some duct tape. You will hang the sheet by throwing it over the rope hanging between two trees, adding duct tape if the knots don’t seem to hold well enough. Now create a comfortable space by using blankets and large outdoor pillows to sit on. Don’t forget the wine (or another drink) and a few snacks like a large bowl of popcorn.
Sunset picnic and stargazing
Enjoy two romantic moments in one by packing a picnic and take a car at a location away from city lights, ideal for watching a sunset. Throw a blanket for your meal and after the sun goes down, spend time together gazing at the stars. If you like to hike, you can start this evening with a hike along a scenic trail before your picnic.
Explore a new “culture”
So you probably can’t fly to Paris for a night that ends with a kiss on the Eiffel Tower, but you can explore a new “subculture”. Subcultures can often be found in another city a short drive away. Just make it a new place that neither of you have really explored. Spend time wandering the neighborhoods or visiting an eclectic downtown, heading to an attractive restaurant or bar for a drink and discovering the local scene.
Couples treatments at the Spa
You can go to a day spa every now and then, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t open after dark and being pampered together can make a perfect night out. Many offer special packages with additional goodies like champagne, chocolates, and fresh fruit. An aromatherapy or hot stone massage followed by a moment in a steam room or hot tub offers plenty of opportunities for romance.
