idea for what to do on a date? Here's how to go about
finding ideas for new and unusual dates that are enjoyable
The three most usual choices for what to do
on a date are
dinner, a movie, and a public event such as a sports game
concert. Those activities often give the couple several hours
of time to enjoy each other's company. But relying on those
same activities too often leads to a loss of the sense of
drama and importance of the time spent together.
Human nature craves the out-of-the-ordinary.

raises awareness and often contributes greatly to our ability
enjoy ourselves. If a couple continues to occasionally find
and unusual choices for what to do, their time together will
Probably the best way to find new ideas for
what to do for a date
is to make a point of being on the lookout for possibilities.
You never know when an idea will present itself. You might
something in the newspaper or in a magazine. Someone you know
could share an idea they have had. Your own hobbies and interests

interests and tastes.

communication. Conversation and comments you and your date
to each other are often the most important part of the date.
Couples who are recent acquaintances need to find out each
other's values and interests. Couples who have been together

makes you more interesting. Finally, stay informed to stay
interesting. Keep up with current events and issues. Listen
to the news and news commentary programs. One good source
like is the web sites of National Public Radio.
