65+ Day Ideas Are Not Just ‘Dinner and a Movie’

Don’t get me wrong, I love going on dates, but am I saying they can get a little more frequent? They always start at the trusty restaurant you’ve been to a million times, continue with activities like going to the movies, and when that’s over, you go home. But really, how many times can you do the same thing over and over again before you get tired before the day even starts? Both first daters and long term relationships struggle from week to week when it’s time to plan their next date but hear me out when I say I’m working on Good luck and #makedatesexcitingagain, so never fear. – I have a few ideas that will take your day to the next level.

Ahead is a list of date ideas that go beyond pointless and cliche date ideas (aka dinner and a movie), and I encourage you to refer to it whenever you are tempted to do the same old thing and your day. From getting to know each other to a game of pickleball to making smores around the fire, these days will be fun and unforgettable for both of you.
