Creative Ideas for a Romantic Date

A unique, exciting dating experience can do wonders for a relationship. Nothing sets the tone for your future as a couple like the impression you create on that first date. Every subsequent date that follows will always be measured by the first one. Even those of us who have been in a relationship for awhile can dazzle the one we love with a fun, romantic date.

If you want to use an easy method to think of a creative date idea, just ask yourself what is unique about your relationship with your sweetheart. You can figure out the theme of your date and where it could take place based on the answer to that question.

A successful romantic date is usually the combination of good planning and play-it-by- ear spontaneity. There are unlimited ways that you can be innovative and create dating ideas for wooing the one you love. Here are a few of them.

1) Outdoor activities: If you are a couple that enjoys the great outdoors, take a hike in the mountains. After that, pitch a tent for the night and cook some food outdoors. Nothing is more romantic than snuggling with your honey while you are on a mountain top looking at a starlit sky.

If you live near an ocean or lake, take a sightseeing cruise or rent a house boat and spend some quality time together. Wake up to the gentle lapping of the waves and head off to an island close by.

2) Surprise date: Everyone loves surprises and nothing works better than a surprise date. How well you are able to plan the date is the real surprise. Does he love sports? Buy front row tickets to a sporting event. Does she like flying? Take her for a helicopter ride. The element of surprise is always a winner.

3) Romantic evening at home: Plan a romantic evening at home. Make an exotic meal and play his or her favorite songs. Decorate the interiors with fresh flowers and pastels. Feed each other strawberries and chocolates.

4) Blindfold date: Blindfold your partner and take him or her out for the evening. Select a romantic spot maybe even the place where you first met! Have a candlelight dinner and pamper the love of your life. Take along some sparkling cider.

I had the most amazing first date with my girlfriend several months ago.

We started off by attending a talent show given by children with mental disabilities. The kids were hilarious and they put on a heartwarming show. I think my girlfriend was impressed that I was willing to support her in a cause she believes in very deeply.

After the talent show, we went to the Las Vegas strip and caught a show at one of the casinos. It was dazzling and exciting… the perfect kind of experience to have on a first date.

We topped the evening off by going to a quaint little restaurant not far from the strip. It was cozy and quiet which gave us the chance to talk and get to know each other better. A great way to finish a perfect date.

Romance is where you find it! Use some of these creative dating ideas and bring the fun back into your dating.
