The Black Crowes - Hard To Handle

Dating with a Difference

If you’re getting bored of the classic dinner date, and have found yourself going to the same restaurants, ordering the same food and having the same conversations, then why not shake things up a little? Check out a few of our alternative dating ideas...

1) Be A Tourist

Admit it - you’ve been living in your hometown for a while now and you still don’t know where the museum is, you still haven’t climbed the church spire and you still haven’t visited that major tourist attraction that you tell all your out-of-town guests about. So this is what you need to do; grab your date, buy a map, and a plan a day exploring your town. The attractions might be interesting or they might be really dull - but, it's bound to spark conversation at least!

2) Lucky Dip

Open up your local paper and turn to the gig listings, shut your eyes and pick one. You could end up seeing someone really great, or you could end up seeing a Barry Manilow tribute act at your local...

3) Get Lost

This one’s for the adventurous types. Pack a picnic and go for a walk – don’t even look at a map! Give yourself two hours to walk, talk and enjoy each other’s company before settling down to a picnic in the middle of nowhere. And then call a taxi to take you home….probably best not risk any direction based arguments on a romantic date.

4) Karaoke Booth

There’s a new craze of the moment – private karaoke booths. It’s intimate, it absolutely gets rid of all inhibitions, they often come with a little button and telecom that you can order drinks through, and it gives you a chance to duet Meatloaf’s ‘I would do anything for love.’ If that doesn't impress your date, nothing will.

5) Pub Quiz

Admittedly, with just two of you the odds of winning are not so high, but it’s a great way to find out how clever your date is and how well you work together.

So there we have it, 5 ideas to liven up your dates. Try one of them out and let us know how it goes!
