Because we’re all a little bored of the dinner and a movie routine.

So he said yes to a first date. Easy right? Now you have just one problem. What are you going to do? Coming up with a game plan, well, that’s not so easy. You could go down the dinner and a movie route–there’s nothing wrong with that. However, we think you’re capable of more. There are so many opportunities out there for great alternative first dates. All you need to do is get out of your comfort zone and try something new.

Take Him Hiking

Sunlight has been proven not only to improve mood, but also to increase those feel-good hormones known as endorphins. So why not spend your first date in the great outdoors? Not only will you get to know your date better, but you can even get in some exercise while you’re at it. Show off your knowledge of the trails or explore a new lookout point together. Hiking is a great break from the droll of sitting in an office all week, and it’s an activity that allows you to actually converse, unlike the whole seeing a movie thing.

Take An Underground Tour of Your City

Every city, whether literally underground or not, has a bevy of unique places that unseen or unknown to the general public. Discover some of the city, and get down and dirty.

Get Your Rocks On

Shimmying up a climbing wall gets you and your date out of your comfort zones, and you can laugh for years about that time you got rescued halfway. 

Spend The Day at The Beach

Just like hiking, going to the beach is a great way to move the date outside. There’s something classically romantic about long walks on the beach. Pack some snacks and bring other fun things like a frisbee or a volleyball to keep things lively.

Go to a Wine Tasting At a Vineyard, Throw Out Some Lingo

Smell the wine and talk at length about its bouquet. No one will suspect that you are both clueless (or are you?), and you can see just how far you can push the faux wine expertise before the other cracks up.

Cook for Him

They say the best way to someone’s heart is through their stomach. What better way to show him that you’re a keeper than to cook him your signature dish. Make it something fun and interactive, like tapas or tacos, so he can get involved.

Roller Coaster(s)

First person who yells buys the next round of cotton candy. Get those hearts beating with a touch of extra adrenaline — if you’re nervous, this could be the push you need to drop all pretensions/scream your face off before you hit the bar afterwards.

Volunteer at An Animal Shelter

Knock out two birds with one stone (not literally!) by doing a good deed while getting to know a good person. Walk some dogs, pet some kitties, and figure out if your date is a sociopath (animals know).

Sing Karaoke – But Take it One Step Further

Karaoke- which might be a typical date, but make it weird by like… actually picking difficult songs or for real choosing your favorite songs without feeling embarrassed.

Watch Shooting Stars

Figure out when the next comet shower is and plan on camping out to see it. I think this date is probably the winner of the entire list!
