1. If thereâ€™s a better place to spend a summer day than the ballpark, itâ€™s a winery. Sitting among the vineyards and sampling a winery's latest is not only not as highfalutin as it sounds, but it can be downright cheap. Tastings at most wineries are under $10, and some are even free. If youâ€™re not familiar with wine or donâ€™t consider yourself a fan, take a tour of the winery. Once you learn more about how itâ€™s made, chances are you will. Taste, discuss and maybe even buy a bottle to enjoy back home or on the premises. Itâ€™s what summer days were made for.
2:Ice-skating is innocent fun. Thatâ€™s why it makes this list of our favorite first date ideas. Itâ€™s a great date for women who love to be active. And if she doesnâ€™t know how to skate, so what? Holding hands as you help her stay on her feet is a fun way to spend an afternoon and an excellent opportunity to get to know each other.
3: Go paint balling and then ride the adrenaline to the nearest whiskey bar.
Type: The perfect date for a girl with a bit of a competitive streak -- just make sure not to tell her she "shoots like a girl" lest she feel the urge to start aiming her gun... a little lower.
Why: Let's be honest, flirtatious trash talk can be a lot of fun. This date will allow the two of you to match wits and marksmanship on the field of battle -- and then take a different, more pleasant kind of shot later.
4:Sharing new experiences together is a great way to build a connection with someone. Thatâ€™s why if youâ€™re going to take her out to a restaurant, you should try taking her somewhere a little more adventurous. Check out a new ethnic cuisine -- something neither of you have tried before. The element of adventure will add some excitement to your date, and, who knows, maybe the two of you will find a new favorite.
5:Aquariums aren't just for fourth-grade field trips; they're also a great place for a first date. You can walk leisurely with your lady friend as the two of you survey all of the sea life. And underwater creatures are colorful, slimy, toothy, and weird enough to keep things interesting.
8:A trip to the local art gallery is a great first date for the artsy girl. Itâ€™s not a bad idea to do a little research on the exhibit beforehand, though. Not just because itâ€™s good to seem at least a little knowledgeable, but also because you donâ€™t want to accidentally take her to an exhibit on the horrors of meat-processing plants or the atrocities of war.
Exploring the great outdoors and getting some physical activity is a terrific first date idea, provided your date is up to the task. You need to check first to ensure that sheâ€™s the outdoorsy type. A high-maintenance woman does not want to go on a hike (you know, that martini-sipping girl with the perfectly manicured nails probably isnâ€™t up for it). But for the cute surfer girl you met at the pub, itâ€™s perfect.
10: Go on a long bike ride out to the water, then stop for a picnic lunch and exploring!
Type: This kind of date should appeal to women with a bit of an adventurous spirit, an athletic streak and/or nature appreciators.
Why: It'll show her that you're not strictly a city slicker, but a guy who's comfortable getting out in nature a little bit.
