Exciting Dating Ideas for Afternoon

Need some Fun Date Ideas? You’ve come to the right place. A lot of the fun dating ideas listed below are not recommended as a first date unless you know the person very well or have known them for a long time. But if you have had a few dates and want to really impress, the list below should be just what your looking for!

It is important to do your research before deciding on a date location or activity, consider the following factors before making your choice:

• What do they like to do in their spare time?
• Have they mentioned how they’ve always wanted to do something but just haven’t got round to it?
• What do you think they would like to do as a date?
• Are they adventurous? If yes, pick something with a sense of adventure!
• Are they shy or outgoing? If shy, opt for a date where it will just be the two of you with no interruptions or other people around. (Not recommended for the first or second date with a woman as you have not built up enough trust yet)

Fun Date Ideas – Day Time

A Unique Restaurant

Go for a restaurant with a relaxed environment, great ambience and serving great food. Do an internet search for restaurant reviews on restaurants in your area.

A Coffee shop

There’s no better way to have a good chat and to get to know someone than over a drink in a relaxed setting.

A Stylish Café

An excellent idea is to take your date to a stylish Café for a drink or lunch and get to know one another.

The Beach

My favourite choice. Women in particular love to take a walk on the beach, especially at sun set (top tip – research the sun set time!)

A Walk in the Park (with picnic optional)

This is good as a first date idea. Take your date for a walk in the park, when you find a nice spot, get out the blanket and sit down and relax; talk, get to know one another. For lunch, either pack a picnic or go into a local restaurant to really finish the date on a good note.

A Museum

This can be a great fun date idea, especially if they are an acedemic type and have told you that they enjoy museums. But you must hit the right topic with your date or they could be bored stiff!

A Picnic

You can never go wrong with a picnic, but you must find out what your date likes to eat beforehand or you could be eating alone. Don’t forget the strawberries and cream; )

A Festival

This is usually a great fun dating idea for both of you as there will be music to suit all tastes, food, drink, shopping and all sorts of other wacky and wonderful things!

An Amusement Park

Fun, adrenaline packed with nearly everything you need for a good day out. But be careful with this choice as not everyone likes amusement parks! Some people think they are for kids.

A Shopping Trip

Ask her to help you pick out a new shirt etc, this forms a good bond and implants ‘partner patterns’
between the pair of you.

Fun Date Ideas – Something Adventurous!

This is where the list gets a little crazy, be careful with these choices as you need to be sure that your date will enjoy it, adventurous dates are certainly not for everyone and should generally not be chosen as a first date idea but they will make excellent fun date ideas.

A Hot Air Balloon ride (with picnic)

The absolute perfect date for a lot of people particularly daters over 30. This just shouts peacefulness, grace and elegance, you cannot fail to be impressed by this!

Paintballing

High energy, adrenaline and action packed day out, it’s great fun but be warned – it hurts when you get hit. This is definitely not for everyone and certainly not for girly girls.

Laser Tag

Although it is just a game, you can’t help but really get into this! It’s great fun and can make a good day or night out if you can overlook all the spotty kids running around like they are Rambo on a do or die mission.

Skiing

Great fun for all who partake in this sport, guaranteed to be a good day out.

Kayaking

Great fun dating idea and very ‘bonding’ if it just the two of you out on the river or lake. Try to plan a route with lots of beautiful scenery and things to see. Get a double kayak for extra bonding.

White Water rafting

Now this is really adrenaline packed! Not for the faint hearted or a first date that’s for sure!

Go-Karting

This can be great fun and I have seen a lot of women doing this and really enjoying themselves, but you have to consider the safety issues when selecting this option as a lot of inexperienced riders get injured (including me and I’m experienced!)

Scuba Diving

If your date has a diving qualification then this is a must for a date at some stage. The bonding during this activity is so strong as you are both there to take care of one another.

Helicopter Ride

Excellent fun date idea and guaranteed to put a smile on your dates face, I have taken a date on a helicopter ride over the mountains before and I have never seen such a glow from her afterwards.

Mountain Biking

Great fun! It is better to go with a reputable company and let them organize the day for you as this will include bike hire, equipment (inc helmet), insurance and a fun route! But if you both have the bikes equipment and no how, then… enjoy.

Quad Biking

Excellent fun but this can be dangerous, certainly not a good first date idea. Choose an off road route if your date seems adventurous and experienced and a simple flat route if they are a bit nervous and have never been on a quad before. Be extra careful if you choose this option as there are a lot of injuries from this activity each year.

Caving

If your date is an outdoors and adventurous person then this will make for a good date! Always check the safety aspects before trekking off into the unknown and make sure you have at least the basic safety equipment.

Paragliding

Exhilarating experience, you appreciate how it feels to be a bird just soaring high above without a care in the world.

Wakeboarding

You’ve all seen it in the movies but most people have never done this activity. It involves standing on a board in the water whilst hanging on to a rope and being pulled by a boat! Find out if your date can swim first and make sure they are not afraid of water.

Sky Diving

The ultimate fun dating idea and most adrenaline packed activity you can possibly do besides a bungy jump. This is both exhilarating and scary at the same time. Everyone should do this once in their life.

6 Tips To Help You Date With Professionals

For people on a budget, there are free dating sites like plentyoffish and okCupid. For those interested in paying a bit more, there are paid sites like Lavalife and Match.com. And for those who are short on time and willing to pay for the privilege of saving some of that time, there are professional dating services. Designed to be one-stop-shops for people looking for a relationship, professional dating services take care of every aspect of setting up date. They find out what you’re looking for in a mate, search for that kind of person, coordinate your schedules, set up the date… and generally coordinate everything so that all you have to do is show up. It’s not for everyone, and it’s expensive, but it’s also very convenient. Over the next few days I’ll go over some advice to help you get the most for your money if you choose to seek out a professional dating service.

1. Take your time and choose wisely.

Dating services stand out as an option for meeting people for many reasons. One of them is the simple fact that they can be pricey. For that reason, take your time and look at all the agencies out there before choosing one and shelling out your hard-earned cash. A reputable agency should take the time to work with you on a one-to-one basis, so you should think about how you’d like to work and choose a provider accordingly. For example, do you prefer lunch dates during the week, or weekend dinner dates? Also, you should think about the kind of person you’re looking for. Agencies have a certain clientele, so make sure that your needs match what they can offer. Spending a lot of time considering these factors upfront will save you a lot of headaches – and money – in the long run.

2. Set yourself a budget before starting.

Once you’ve chosen some dating services that you think are a good fit, starting comparing prices. While you shouldn’t shy away from a interesting option just because it’s a bit more expensive than the others, you definitely want to have a budget in mind. This budget should be a kind of “experimentation” budget. In other words, ask yourself how much you’re willing to “lose” in order to experiment with a dating service. While you should never assume the worst, you have to assume that you’re going to have to spend some money before you find your soulmate. By setting yourself a budget, you’ll become more comfortable with spending a bit of cash on a dating service, and you’ll also set yourself a point at which you’ll stop if it just isn’t working for you.

3. Write down a description of what you’re looking for in a soulmate.

The first step of a starting with a dating service is an interview where you’ll be asked questions about yourself, and what you’re looking for. You want to make the most of the interview, because that’s how the dating service will search for singles for you. So it’s a good idea to write down what you’re looking for before you begin. By taking the time to really think about what your ideal date would be like, and then writing it down, you’re going to paint a clearer picture of what you actually want in a soulmate. The better this picture is – and the closer it is to what you NEED in partner, and not what you WANT in one – the better your dates will be.

4. Get some quality face-time with a prospective service provider.

One of the great things about dating services is that you get something which is getting very rare these days: quality face-to-face time with someone (or at least, phone-to-phone time). This face-to-face time usually takes the form of an “interview,” where the dating service gets to know what you’re looking for. Make sure to squeeze all you can from this interview. Personalized service is great, so don’t let yourself be rushed at any point. Answer all the questions they have for you truthfully, but also, ask them anything you want. Take your time. Get their advice. You never know what you may learn, and the more they know about you, the better your matches will be.

5. You’re the boss, so make sure they do the work for you.

A dating service is just that: a service. You’re paying someone to look for potential matches for you – so make sure they look hard. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, to be critical of matches they’ve made, to give them constructive feedback, and to do anything else that you feel will help them find great dates for you… and that will make your life a little easier. Remember, a dating service can be a great time saver if you put the onus on them to work hard for you. And they’re not just there to listen: so don’t forget to ask questions. Pick their brains and squeeze them for everything they’ve got… it’s one of the nice perks of hiring a dating service.

6. Be upfront about the fact that you’re using a dating service.

Don’t be shy about the fact that you’re using a dating service, either with the people you meet on that service, or with your friends or family. Instead, be proud of the fact that you’re taking matters into your own hands, and taking a very proactive approach to meeting people. By taking this position, you’ll come across as being confident, instead of being insecure. This will help you on the dates you get through your service: by being upfront and confident about the fact that you’re using a dating service, you’ll put your date (who may be insecure about it) at ease, and instantly break the ice. Have fun with it. Laugh about it. It’ll make your date that much more pleasant.

Dating Can be Dangerous to Your Health!

Online Dating has become the #1 industry on the internet and it is growing increasingly popular and accepted each and every day. There are cereal daters, tepid daters, repeat daters, and short term daters. Whichever category you fall into, I have to warn you to be careful. There are a couple of very important things you must know bout the online dating universe and the effects it can have on your life. Online dating can be hazardous to your health.

1) Dating Online ruins your personal life. Have you noticed the finer things in life are usually shared with family or close friends? If you online date, you’ll have less time for these same family and friends, which is unhealthy. These joys, the finer things, are what make us happy. As there are only so many hours in a day to see family and friends and experience these healthy joys, the time online dating will consume can be damaging. Okay, you want to try online dating, but at what personal cost? Online dating is addictive and easy. Once you start, you’re not going to stop until you find your “perfect match.” Pretty soon you’ll spend so much time dating that you’ll never see your family or friends. If this happens you’ll lack “happy connectivity” in your life, which can lead to many health concerns such as depression.

2) Dating Online can give you an STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease). Those who date online meet an abundance of interesting and attractive people. The unfortunate thing is that when two interested people go on a “date” it invariably leads to sex. While sex is good and natural between two human beings who are interested and attracted to one another, online dating can open the door to serious problems. Online dating brings the opportunity-to-close ratio for sex into overdrive. The more sex you have, the more likely you are to catch a sexually transmitted disease. Be careful! STD’s can lead to death if you’re not careful. If STD’s don’t scare you, how about becoming a Sexaholic? Or even, a Sexaholic with a non curable STD? Scary stuff.

3) Dating Online can lead to bankruptcy. Plain and simple, dating is really expensive. Sushi restaurants, flowers, Godiva chocolates, fancy clothes, all of these things are expensive. A decent first date at minimum costs at least $30. I know some guys who receive 20 emails a day from interested and attractive women. Some women I know receive close to 200 a day! Lets say my guy friend who gets 20 emails a day decided to go on a date with these 20 interested people. He is a gentleman, so he always pays. At $30 a night done 20 times, his out of pocket cost is $600. What if he went out with all the women who were interested over the course of just one week? He’d be spending $4,200 a week!! That’s $16,800 a month, or $201,600 a year! Yuck! Be careful. Even though he met all these women on a free online dating website, dating is expensive and at $201,600 a year, he’ll file for bankruptcy in no time.

4) Dating Online can lead to death. In this day and age, everybody is trying to be different and stand out to be memorable. This is the same for dating. Everybody is looking for that “unique” date idea that will be fun, engaging, original and ultimately make your potential match melt and fall in love with you. Dating is a game as old as time itself. There aren’t many things humans have not done yet. We’ve all been to dinner, we’ve all been to movies and we’ve all been bowling. What else is there? In our attempt to be original with each and every date, we start doing stupid things like sky diving. What if the parachute doesn’t open? Maybe you go Camping. What if you get eaten by a bear? Maybe you go sailing. What if the boat capsizes and your drown? Meeting all these people through online dating and trying to be something original in their life is risky. If you’re not careful, online dating can lead to death.

5) Dating Online can get your butt kicked. As we date online, we always meet new people and we cannot help but to compare the new date to the last. Each time we date, we judge, we decide what we like or don’t like them move on. In short, we upgrade. Because it is easy to meet so many quality people through online dating, upgrading is done quickly and efficiently. Eventually, after we’ve run through the gambit of the online dating world, we will decide to settle with someone we believed to be the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be! Congratulations. Problem is, because you have the best, and because all people are on the same mission for you as the best, you’ve set yourself up for disaster. Every person on the planet is going to be interested in your chosen mate, so be prepared for bar fights, arguments and cussing matches. The male tendency to dominate and compete will ultimately ruin your relationship, but along the way you’ll have to do a lot of ass kicking and accept a couple of beatings. This is natural law and order and it cannot be avoided. Only online date if you’re prepared to get your ass kicked.

In conclusion, Online Dating can be a dangerous game. If you want to live a simple, ignorant and petty life with few friends and no adventure, DO NOT online date. Online dating will ruin all these hopes and dreams of your simple life. Online dating is ONLY for the adventurous, inspired and modern individual looking to expand, grow and enrich their life with moments and memories you cannot write about, only experience, and enjoy (hopefully!).

This article was inspired by fun to highlight some of the benefits of dating online in a fun and humorous way. Meeting people online through a website designed for dating is a gift that technology has given us. Adapt, experiment and harness the benefits that you can only get from a free online dating website.
