Cooking together is a great way to deepen your connection and get to know your partner, even if you've been seeing each other for a long time. Set the tone by deciding what you'll cook and selecting background music ahead of time.
Not only is visiting bookstores a great way to help your local economy and authors, but it's also the perfect place for a date. Local stores often have a cozy, romantic atmosphere, along with other date-like components like coffee shops and lounging areas.
Games are a great way to figure out deeper personality traits about your date. When it comes to cooperative games, you learn how you function as a team, while competitive games show how your prospective partner reacts both to defeat and victory.
Connecting to nature is an automatic way to feel refreshed and less stressed, the latter of which is key for a good date. Without the greater distractions of other dating venues, a nature walk gives you and your date a chance for deeper conversation.
