Today, PGG contributor Jecoup, tells several activities you can do when taking your girl out for a date.
When people date, most of you will probably visualize a couple sharing an intimate dinner in a posh restaurant then maybe after dining they would go out and watch a movie.
But seriously, dating should not just be confined in the four walls of a restaurant or a cinema house. Not that these concepts are bad but if you do that all the time wouldn’t it be, well, predictable and boring? And I’m sure you would not want your relationship to end up like that, right?
So spice up your dating life! Try to consider the following tips on alternative dating activities:
1. Play Sports
If you are both athletic why not try this option and play a sport like badminton, tennis or bowling? Of course, if you choose this you and your loved one will really need to sweat it out but for sure you will have fun. In case your girlfriend does not know how to play any sport, this could be an excellent opportunity for you to teach her how to play one. Not only will the two of you have fun together, you will also open the door for her to learn something new.
You and your special lady may not be a potential Pinoy Dream Academy Grand Star Dreamer but who cares anyway? There are many videoke bars in the city and you could even find one in malls where you could have private videoke rooms. There you could sing your hearts out without inhibitions and your dream of serenading your girl is possible. You could also compete on who will get the best scores and the punishment every time one loses is a kiss. Isn’t that sweet?
Who says spas are just for the ladies? It is certainly not! Why just settle on waiting at the reception area? You could join your significant other and try one of the services like foot spa, body massage among others. This would delight your lady love and at the same time you will have an opportunity to release stress. And after the treatments are done you two will both feel recharged and alive to go on to do other activities together.
4. Nature Tripping
Being one with nature unleashes a romantic atmosphere – so why not give a shot on nature tripping for a date? You could try mountain climbing, I know it sounds so tiring but for starters you could try going to Taal Volcano, cross the Taal Lake and go horseback riding to the crater. There is also the well-known Villa Escudero wherein you could ride a carabao-powered cart or try bamboo rafting in the river. Moreover, you could also visit the La Mesa Eco Park where you could just stroll while holding hands appreciating the natural beauty of the environment.
5. Road Trip
This is recommended for couples who are city dwellers. Why not set one weekend and go on a road trip to a province nearby? For example, visit Laguna or Cavite and go from one town to another. You will be amazed that there are underrated wonders in these provinces. This will also be an opportunity for both of you to detoxify from your busy lives in the city.
Dating need not be expensive as you think and this activity proves so. On a good night, you could set up a picnic on your roof top where you and your significant other would just stare at the sky and appreciate its beauty. This scenario sets a romantic mood and you might be surprised that this could also be an opportunity for you and your loved one to talk about the present and the future with the stars in the sky as witnesses. Isn’t that romantic?
Whatever activity you choose you should always keep in mind that what is important when we date are the memories that serve as foundations for a strong and long-lasting relationship.
