Learn something new together
An interesting date that is sure to stick in the mind would be to learn something together. Not only could it be a lot of fun but you could gain a skill or new hobby even if the chemistry isn’t there!
Here are my top 5 ideas.
Now I know this isn’t every blokes cup of tea but will win over a lot of women if you give this a go. Pick salsa dancing over ballroom as the flirty vibe will ease over any nerves. Much more informal and sometimes swapping partners which eases the pressure.
Salsa! On charing cross road is great for this. Beginners classes most nights drink and food offers too. Great fun for a mid week date.
2. Cocktail making
Every guy wants to be Tom Cruise right? Well here’s your chance. There are many bars that offer this in london. Vinopolis also known for it’s wine tasting (something else to learn there!) does cocktail making classes in the evening, twice a month at the moment.
Jamie Oliver’s recipease does some great courses that won’t break the bank and you get you dinner at the same time. Learn to make the perfect steak, curry or swot up on those chef skills. Guaranteed to be a winner!
4. Get creative
Cake decorating – might seem a bit girly but fun when you get messy with the icing. The chocolate box does some good classes with lots of cupcakes to take home and yes there are a lot of men that go!
Or fancy re-creating the ‘ghost’ moment get behind a pottery wheel and get messy with some clay instead.
A lot of local authorities do lessons.
I’m not talking about anything to radical. But maybe a bit of roller skating in the park, rowing on the lake, golf? Darts? Pool? This might work better if one of you does know how to do it though!
Dating Games – Rock, Paper, Scissors
Sometimes you need your date to stand out from the crowd. I mean how many times, have you been to a standard generic restaurant. Of course we have lots of unusual dating ideas on the site to keep things interesting but sometimes its not enough. One of my old flatmates went on a date and they all made their decisions by playing a game of rock paper scissors. For example they came to a junction and then played paper scissors rock to decide if they would go left or right. She told me it was a fun unusual date and of course you never know where you are going to end up.
Bank holiday dating
Well with this gorgeous early summer weather we have been experiencing, now is the perfect time to be dating outside.
Be that either in a good pub garden, or a romantic walk in the park, get out there! The sun makes you want to flirt and hormones are abundant.
With all these extra days holiday what better an excuse.
Here are my top 5 dates for this weekend:
1. Borough Market – great for foodies where you can taste mouth-watering delights whilst wandering around and pick up bits for a luscious picnic, maybe along the thames.
2. Regents Park bike ride – Get yourself on some of Boris’ bikes for an hour or two and cycle round this beautiful London park. If 2 wheels aren’t your strong point a walk would still be lovely just not as much of a giggle!
3. Pub garden with a difference – The Faltering Fullback in Finsbury Park has a great outdoors with a tree house feel to it, tres romantica in the balmy evenings. Also good looking Thai food here.
4. Little Venice – A hidden gem behind Paddington station or Warwick Avenue tube. Take a walk along Regents Canal or maybe a boat trip up to Camden Lock. There is a lovely cafe on a boat or for something a bit stronger the Bridge house pub on the corner is a good option.
5. Greenwich Park – Excellent view and lots of things to see and do with museums galore and a lovely place to walk around. Make sure to visit the market and the docks.
Go love it up!
