Go Birdwatching Sometimes the most romantic activities involve being outdoors together. Check if your favorite local park offers birdwatching tours, or just hang out in your backyard with binoculars. Take a Brewery Tour Learn something and get beer in the process? This is pretty much a foolproof date.
They simply allow you to spend time with the one you like or love! Painting is a creative dating idea that can be as inexpensive or pricey as you'd like. Paint each other's portraits with a goofy theme involved. Take on a project and paint a room. You could even visit an art class and pick up techniques together.
Find a nice little spot to spread a blanket, and dig in! What a quiet way to enjoy nature, and get to know each other. You could even include a couple question cards in your basket with get-to-know-you questions for each of you to answer throughout the date. This is one of my favorite date ideas.
Good first date ideas are ones that facilitate upbeat conversation, so it's probably not a good idea to choose a loud bar or dark movie theater. It's okay to keep it simple the first time you go out with someone. In fact, you might want to go to one of your own favorite places.
