Delightful date ideas

Reporter- Isabella Welch

In our generation, dating can be difficult, but physically going on a date is virtually unheard of. It’s understandable, with all the things we have to deal with in our personal lives. However, when you find that special person, you might find yourself in a position where you go on a real date. But dating is hard and we need a little help sometimes.

Dates aren’t always like they are in movies. Dates can be lighthearted and fun, and they should be fun. You should be enjoying yourself and be enjoying the time with your boo. Putting your own special touch on your date idea can make the experience even better.

Obviously, you could go for dinner and a movie, but if you’re looking to heighten your dating experience, try some new things. Incorporating food is a go-to, so think of having a picnic, cooking something together, or going out for ice cream/frozen yogurt. Or have your meal at a sports event, the concessions stand can be equally as romantic.

Another way to have fun on a date is physical activity. Going for a bike ride, cleaning up your local beach, going somewhere to watch the sunset/sunrise together or, do a craft project together.

Overall, dating should be fun. You shouldn’t have to stress over one outing, just make sure you both enjoy yourselves. Live life to the fullest!
