1. Go for a bike ride around the city
Think about the last time you went cycling. It has probably been ages, probably when you were in high school. For a delightful experience and rush of nostalgia, consider hiring bikes and cycle around the city during sunset, especially if you and your date are quite adventurous.
This is also a great way for you and your date to burn some calories while racing and learning more about each other.
2. Have an apartment “show-and-tell”
Virtual dates are very really great for the first date, especially during these times. No better way to learn about your date than where they live, how they live, and the weird things they like. What is the expensive thing they’ve bought? What is the most sentimental thing they cannot do without? What can you tell about their style from their wardrobe? It’s a fun way to learn about your date.
Obviously, you can even take it up a notch and make this a “show-and-tell” an exciting and sexy version.
3. Go for a picnic
Sometimes the simpler things are the most treasured. A picnic is a cost-effective and relaxing way to impress your date. If you’re looking for date ideas that are fun and laid back, just pick out a beautiful garden, a beach, or somewhere picturesque in your area.
Go to your local store or farmer’s market and shop for fruits and ingredients you might need for cooking. Be mindful of the weather when planning your date, if it’s a gloomy or rainy day then you should consider doing something else or rescheduling.
