Do you remember what it felt like to go on that very first date? The mix of excitement and nervousness that comes from getting to know someone new. While the thrill of a first date might seem like something in the distant past, you can recapture that feeling no matter how long you’ve been in your relationship.
Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Make a date to do something you never do, but have always wanted to. Dancing? Murder mystery dinner? Comedy night? Whatever it is, just make sure it’s something completely out of the ordinary.
- Make the night more special with some mood enhancers, just like you might to impress a new special someone in your life. Candlelight, incense, and wine are a few easy ways to make an ordinary night extraordinary.
- You can recreate that first date feeling by renting a car for your next date. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, just something out of the ordinary for you. This will make the entire evening feel new and different, even if you’ve been together for years.
- Take a class on something that neither of you know anything about. It could be cooking, painting, dancing or skating – whatever you want to discover together.
And if you’re looking for something not so new, but special, you can recreate your actual first date. This can be a great way to celebrate an anniversary or just surprise your special someone with something entirely unexpected. Not only will you have a fantastic date, but you’ll also score some extra points for being romantic.
