I get asked a lot what is a good (or bad) date activity. Typical questions are something like:
* “Is going to a movie a good first date?”
* “I love football, but will my girl want to watch the game on a date?”
* “Can we head to the gym as part of a date?”
The answer to all of these questions is, sure! With a caveat: your date has to be into the same activity or interest as you. For example, on the football date question, of course you both can watch the game and have it be a great time. But if your gal isn’t into football, it won’t be much fun for either of you.
In the early part of your relationship, it’s really important that you talk about the types of things you enjoy doing. Having a bad or boring date can make you think negatively about someone who would otherwise be perfect for you. So it’s vital to discuss it.
The key to a good date, no matter what you do, is to be able to connect. Time for discussion is very important. So even with something like a movie date, where you are not talking for two hours, you can still connect if you allow time for coffee or dinner afterward.
The two of you are naturally going to have some common ground, and some things one of you enjoys doing and the other doesn’t. That’s okay. In fact, it’s a good thing. But in the beginning, find out what the two of you might have in common so you can ensure that your dates will be happy ones.
