Even though the pandemic brought a lot of changes into our lives, dating can and should be romantic. Don’t be sad about the limits and rules that we all need to stick to – you can organize a great first date to know each other better. Here are a few ideas for you and your significant other.
Social distancing is the key during the pandemic. That means that many activities that you are used to might not be an option for now. It’s a pity we can’t go to a rave, concert, or a party with our date. But there are still a few things that the two of you can enjoy. One of such activities is an escape room. It’s fun, creative, and will give you an opportunity to show your logical skills. Moreover, you will be able to know more about the person you go on a date with. Going through the quest together is a perfect way to see what the person is like when it comes to quick decisions and brainstorming.
Average cost: $25-30 per person.
If you can’t visit your favorite restaurant, you can still enjoy great meals during your date. Many restaurants provide takeout food, so go ahead and grab some. A picnic in your local park or on the beach will be an excellent option for your first date. Hours of talking, tasty food, some music – isn’t it a perfect date? Just make sure you take precautions when you are meeting the person from the internet for the first time:
Meeting new people is always exciting, but you should never forget about your safety.
Average cost: $20-25 per person.
Drive-in theatres are popular again due to the pandemic – they give us an opportunity to enjoy the newest movies without being afraid of getting infected in a crowded hall. Why not go there? Even if you or your date don’t have a car, you can rent one at your local place or at the theatre itself – some of them provide such an opportunity. Going to a drive-in theatre is comfortable and a little retro – you will definitely enjoy such an experience.
Average cost: $15-20 per person
There is something magically cute about going on a bike ride together on your date night. Choose the root of your preference – whether it’s in a park or outside of your town. Make pitstops, take photos and enjoy some snacks together. It’s a great option if you have a bike of your own. But even if you don’t, just rent one. It’s going to be a fun adventure and a great opportunity to know more about each other.
Average cost: around $20 for 3 hours of renting a bike.
Spring is here, and trees start blossoming. Take a chance to see this beauty together. You can both take photos, have ice cream, and just take a long walk to talk. Botanical gardens are not that common, but if you have one in your area, you should definitely have a date in there. You will not regret it, especially if you love nature, flowers, and open air. Make sure to check the weather forecast and take some sandwiches with you.
Average cost: $10-15 per person
There are multiple options for you to organize a perfect first date, even during the pandemic. Don’t waste your time and check if there are any activities in your area that you and your partner can visit together – master classes for two, open-air museums, online concerts to enjoy, etc. Don’t forget about safety and have fun!
