When you start dating someone dates can be super easy going for some and a total mess for some others because they don’t want to do the traditional Netflix & chill date or restaurant one, but they don’t really know what else to do. It’s also super hard sometimes for those who have been dating for a long time and feel like they have done everything together. Well, no more worries! We bring you a list of ideas of dates you should try to have the best time with your other half and change that routine.
1. Take A Class Together
From cooking, to dancing to pottery, there are tons of classes you can take with your other half and why not? Learn something new in the process. Check at your community’s center, libraries, colleges or even craft stores to see if they have any activities available in the next months you could sign yourself and your partner to learn something new together and have a great time.
2. Visit An Amusement Park Or Water Park
Let’s be real, there is probably less than 5% of the people in the whole wide world who don’t enjoy a good day at an amusement park. Try and share this amazing experience with your other half to enjoy a completely different date. The delicious snacks, the thrill on the rides and the cute pictures you guys can take are some of the infinite reasons why you should have a date like this. A water park is also an awesome option to visit when it’s summertime!
3. Adult Kids Party
Parties are not only for kids anymore! Honor your love with a kid’s birthday party turn into your own adult kids’ version. Buy a silly piñata, bake a cake or get one from the store, a present for each one, a few games like pin the tail on the donkey or whatever comes to your mind. If you feel as if a party of just the two of you is pretty lonely, invite a few couples and make it a couple’s date. Don’t forget to have that music you used to loved as a kid when going to parties.
4. Try Science Experiments
With just a quick search around the internet you can find fun and different experiments you could try at home. There are even lots of videos on YouTube from which you can get inspiration from.

But you can have a fun time betting if you want or just watching people doing and guessing who might get the prize.
6. Give A Graffiti A Shot
We are not talking about going and doing something illegal, find a spot where you can do it, maybe on a park, a piece of plywood, particle board or old chalkboard or even at a wall at your own place you want to renovate. If you are not that comfortable with art or don’t know the basics of a graffiti, you can watch some tutorials online. The make a trip to the hardware store to get what you will be needing adding some stencils on the go if you want also. When you are ready give it a go, we bet you are going to have lots of fun during this date!

This is a date for lovers of adrenaline, good scares and horror stories! Start by researching a bit online and finding those places that are supposed to be haunted on your area or nearby. Schedule a date and go around them, you can have some facts about the places, talk to the person who is in charge of the place in case its private or just go and take some shots to remember the day. You can also add some grave visiting to finish your date, or if it is allowed in your town make a picnic at the cemetery. If you and your partner are both huge fans of whatever scary thing comes to mind, they try this date idea at night.

The farmers market are those small markets that usually take place on every weekend around the towns. On these markets you can find from food, to activities, to thrift shops and sometimes even shows where people from the town sing and perform.
