If you’re an introvert reading this article and you have a date lined up, you have come to the right place! First dates can be daunting and if you are stuck for ideas, here is a list of 10 first date ideas for introverts that you can try out.
1. A museum
Whether it’s a science, history or optical illusion museum, you’ll be able to share your common interests during a date here.
You’ll also have a chance to get to know each other better and maybe grab some lunch or dinner afterwards to wind down after walking around all day and have a proper conversation.
It’s one of the most common and cliché first date ideas but a cafe is a great place for a first date – it’s intimate yet not too loud either. You’ll also be able to find out if your date is a coffee lover or more of a hot chocolate person.
You can pick a great spot where you can people watch or you can find a quiet corner of the cafe where you can have more one to one interaction but still have the buzz of people around.
If you and your date are avid readers then a bookshop has probably come across your mind when it comes to first date ideas. It’s a great place for you to share what your favourite novels are and you can discuss what you like or don’t like about certain novels.
You could even buy each others books and for the next date, exchange books and discuss what you thought about them.
The beach is always one of the best first date ideas – there’s the sand, pier, amusements and ferris wheel. What’s not to love?
It’s a great place to enjoy the weather and have fun together. You can even get to know each other better by going on the ferris wheel with the view of the sun setting.
Bowling is another fun idea for a first date. You can diss each other’s bowling skills and have a friendly competition. You can even make a bet to see who wins and whoever loses will have to pay for dinner.
6. Ice skating
This is a great way to break the ice (pun intended) between you and your date. If you can ice skate, you can show off to your date or if you can’t, your date will think it’s cute when you’re holding onto them for dear life.
You can have a great laugh if you fall over and it’ll be a great memory for a first date.
This is another fun and interesting date idea where you can check out sea animals with your date. One of the more laidback first date ideas, this idea is great to break the ice more slowly.
Some people might say that stargazing is cheesy or some may say that it is more of the romantic first date ideas. Whichever is your opinion, it’s definitely worth trying out!
While you’re laying down on the grass, you can play 20 questions and use the opportunity to find out more about your date.
There’s no doubt that everyone loves food. Instead of having the hassle of trying to decide on what restaurant to go to or what your date might like, why not try having a picnic instead?
A picnic is one of the more unique and original first date ideas where you can grab a variety of snacks and drinks together and surprise your date.
10. Art gallery
If you’re into art (or maybe your date does), check out the local art gallery. There are usually exhibitions on for a limited time and you can appreciate the artwork there and it’ll be a talking point after.
