Everyone want to impress their dating partner, special if is someone new… bu these days, an average and impressive date can be expensive. How can you set up a great and romantic date with out spending a fortune…
Also the money is not everything, it can be impressive, can also can be less than romantic – after all, what is really romantic about eating in a restaurant and handing out tips for servers like you handing out business cards.
For that matter, how can you get to know each other with a waiter coming by ever five minutes to see if you need anything?
And if a date is about getting to know each other, finding out if you like each other and have things in common, you can’t really do that if you go to a movie or a concert or club. Attraction won’t grow if you’re both involved with a plot or a band. In between your regular dates, why not try some dates that encourage spending time with each other and don’t cost a fortune.
Stop at a neighborhood deli just before the date and pick up a full picnic lunch or dinner? Ask your date for her favorite foods, so hopefully you can include one or two in the meal. Now drive to the beach or the park (perhaps she has a preference) and find a nice spot away from any crowds. You can talk while you eat (remember napkins and something to sit on!) and then go for a walk together.
Almost every women loves flower.
Are you a man? Why not meet your date close to her home with a single flower that you can have professionally wrapped at a florist? Make it one in a color she likes, or if you happen to know her favorite flower, have it with few nice leaves in clear or colored cellophane, just like a full sized bouquet.
If you want to end the evening doing something, maybe an ice cream parlor or the bar in a local exotic restaurant for a drink would be nice and easy. Or want to be sure that you have something to do in case you don’t end up with much to talk about? Why not go to a pier or local amusement park? Not a theme park – just a place with a merry-go-round and some pinball and other games, and maybe bumper cars and stuff. You can take turns trying to win each other toys, or play pool or some kind of ball game – and except for serious snobs, everyone loves to play.
If it is not you first date with you dating partner, than what about a romantic dinner at you place too finish you date in a style.
If your day date worked out well, you can finish the day at your place with a home made romantic dinner. Nice table, some candle light and a glass of fine wine. If you don’t know how to cook, order take out meal from a restaurant and you just have to serve it. No paper plates allowed! Use your best dinnerware, nice music and scented candles. It will touch her hearth.
Romantic movie at your place.
If you do not want deal with meal, you can do a movie at your place, but make it seem special. Then instead of the same old movie popcorn, why not see if you can buy a couple actual movie popcorn containers? They have them at restaurant supply or party supply places. If there is no party supply store in your city maybe a local theater will sell you a couple. Try a little decor – maybe you can get a couple old movie posters that used to hang at movie houses. Find out what her three favorite movies are – hopefully they aren’t too esoteric and you can find at least one for rent. Then send her an invitation, either hand-delivered or in the mail. Invite her to a movie preview (but make it clear it will be at your place, so she doesn’t get dressed up).
For example: “You Are Invited to a Cinema Event! I will be your host and I would like to invite you to a movie premiere at my personal – home based theater. Will be playing at 8pm sharp. Please bring this invitation for seating.”
Or you can always go somewhere where you both have interests. If you both enjoy reading, maybe you can go to a used bookstore and then go sip coffee. If you and she both like roller skating, that could be fun. Or a trip to the zoo. You might even try a long drive in the car, if you have some nice scenery near where you live.
As you can see above, there are a lot of way to get to know someone. You just have to find a compatible partner and everything else work out.
