Winter time can sometimes present difficulties in finding dating ideas that don’t repeat themselves over and over again. All it really takes is a bit of imagination and you’ll find various ideas to make your evenings or afternoons exciting, relaxing and romantic. Following are some great ideas for winter dates:
Have coffee at a trendy café: This is a perfect way to while away a few hours on a cold snowy day. Even if you don’t have a local Starbucks, there are always those adorable little cafes that offer coffee and desserts. You get a chance to talk and, if you’re new to each other, get acquainted. It can be a wonderful way to break the ice and work your way into an even longer date.
Ice skating: Even if you don’t know how to ice skate, that shouldn’t stop you from making a date to go ice skating. In fact, if you’re a bit rusty on your skating skills, you’ll need to hold onto his arm and have his arms around you holding you up quite a bit while on the ice. Nothing makes for more togetherness than constant touching and holding.
Cooking dinner together: Things can get quite playful and fun when the two of you are cozied up together in a kitchen. Preparing food can be very sexy when you know what you’re doing.
Book reading event: If you live near a bookstore or know where a nice one is located that you can get to, there are often book signings and readings done by the authors that wrote the books. This can be a rather exciting way to spend a cold evening if you and your guy are both into reading and the same types of books.
Play a board game: Of course, this only works if both of you like playing games, but you can always get into a game if it’s interesting and exciting enough. You may prefer card games or some other type of game.
Attend a sporting event: Indoor sports such as basketball or hockey can be a wonderful date in colder weather. You’re inside during the event and the competition can really warm you up as you cheer for your favorite team.
Build a snow man or snow fort: What can be more fun that playing outside in the snow? Bundle up and head outside to build a snow man together. Make an entire snow family if you want. You can also build a snow fort and have a snowball war. Then you can go back inside later and warm up by the fire while drinking some hot chocolate.
These are just a few of the many things you can do for a winter date. Once you get started, though, you’ll probably come up with something all on your own. Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean that you can’t have some exciting and romantic dates. Don’t give up and assume that anything you do has to involve sitting by the fire, although that’s fun, too. Just branch out a bit and you’ll see what other things you can be doing in the winter.
