We have all been there haven’t we? Can’t decide where to go for a date. Torn between keeping it simple yet romantic, making it unconventional, and impressing their pants off (no pun intended).
Although going to a restaurant is a classic, many will agree that in the present time, it is more of an unspoken widely accepted trend.
Ergo, to break the trend (and the monotony) how about trying something unconventional to start off with the right amount of charm?
1. Plan a picnic
Picture this: a packed lunch, some sangria, you and your date out in the open, lounging under the sun somewhere calm and green. Bonus tip: take a board game along.
2. Go to a planetarium
I can safely say that the only sky full of stars you will get in a metro city is if you play the Coldplay song, or if you leave the city altogether. Then there are planetariums. Won’t that be a good date or what?
3. Take a culture walk
India boasts of a being a cultural country, and for a good measure too. Pick a cultural spot in your city and get exploring with your loved one. As you explore the city, you explore each other too.
4. Or a walk through a park
Remember the magic Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant created in that garden scene in Notting Hill? Enough said.
5. Go ice skating
I know this is a limited option, but still a fun idea to consider. Much brews over a rink as you skate together, holding hands, giggling and stumbling.
6. Go to a museum
You both may not be art connoisseurs but it is never too late to go a museum and hone those latent critic skills as you discover each other’s’ tastes.
7. Or a monument
India boasts of many of those as well. Plus, they do great things for your Instagram account.
8. Take a drive to the outskirts of the city
Murthal, Lonavala, Nandi Hills, and so many more places are only two hours’ drive from various metropolitan cities. Make a day out of it, and trust me, your partner will love the tiny excursion.
9. Indulge in some adventure sports
Get adventurous on a date and pump that date with some adrenaline. Paintball, anyone? Or maybe artificial rock climbing?
10. Go to an art exhibition, gig or a play
If you don’t want to get too experimental, and yet offbeat there are a lot of music gigs, theatre plays, exhibitions and stand-up comedy performances that happen through the week.
