Spring means warmer weather, and for couples this should be great! For those who experienced the wrath of Winter, you’re tired of being stuck indoors and being confined to watching movies, playing board games, or going out to eat. Now that we can get out and enjoy the weather, here are some fun date ideas for spring.
1) Go on a Hike
Hikes do not have to be as physically taxing as it might sound. Many local parks offer easy hiking trails for beginners, some only spanning a few miles or less. If you or your significant other is not in good shape, start off small and eventually work your way up to hiking for longer amounts of time. It’s a great date idea because it promotes an active lifestyle while allowing you two to talk and enjoy the great outdoors.
2) Go on walks
Whereas hiking is often done is woody areas, a walk can be in an open place with many buildings around. If you’re not one who likes the idea of being in the woods, then try taking a walk on a boardwalk or around a park. Just like hiking, it promotes a healthy lifestyle while giving you time to talk to your significant other. Do not, however, choose a place to walk that is frequented by a lot of cars; it will be harder for you to talk to one another.
A picnic can even be combined with going on walks; pack a nice lunch, towel or blanket, and some drinks, and make your way to a nice park or somewhat secluded area where you can lay out and enjoy each others company. Additionally, you can bring a book for both of you to read together, some poetry, music, or even different couples questions games to have some extra fun getting to know each other.
4) Watch a movie outside
After the sun sets, set up a projector outside or your laptop and watch a movie together. This allows you to relax together, watch a movie, and still enjoy the nice weather. Make sure that your laptop is fully charged, or find a way to run an extension cord to it so that you can watch the whole movie without your laptop dying. If you have a projector, make sure you set it up before it gets dark, otherwise everything becomes harder!
