# Go UniqueNo two people are same. So, it means you don’t have to book a restaurant for a dinner date. Your partner may be an adventurer or interested in doing unconventional things. For instance, you can go for paint-balling, on a trekking, boating or a concert. The purpose is to surprise and have fun with your date. Come up with a unique and fun idea that can make it a different and memorable experience for both of you.
# Go ExtraDon’t make it just about a lunch or dinner. Take a full day and show that you are serious in knowing him/her. Start early and make different date segments in the whole day. Have a light strolling morning followed by an adventurous and fun afternoon and take it onto a peak in lightings with just the right touch of romance. This way you can show different elements of your personality and impress your date.
# Things to AvoidWell, we all do have an idea of what we can do on a date but the important thing is what not to do. Don’t relentlessly talk about just yourself ever; show your date an interest too. Don’t brag about your achievements, no show-off. You are not an omniscient so don’t try to be one. You may even be able to learn something from your date. Being overly confident or arrogant is a major turn off. All in all, be yourself but leave your ego at your home.
Sometimes simplicity is the best option. A nice, small picnic can do what a five-star dinner won’t be able to. Know your date, inform him/her in advance and have an alternate option ready, if god forbids the first one dwindles.
Know each other; be kind, respectful and caring. Have fun!
