So you've started dating and maybe even found someone and want to get serious. You need to start fanning the flames of love but are not sure how to do it. You feel romantic about them and you want to show them how you feel. It is time to start making romantic dates that develop feelings of mutual love. So consider a few ideas for romantic dates that you can easily organise and some tips to make them really great.
An outdoor activity like canoeing or taking a row boat ride can really bring you together with birds and bees literally buzzing around and scenery providing a beautiful backdrop.
Maybe even a horse and buggy ride in the country or a nice sunset bike ride along a waterfront. For something a little more unusual how about a balloon ride in the country at dawn or sunset? It could be an exhilarating feeling flying over a gorgeous landscape and holding each other tight as you float around the sky. Just be sure to check that your date isn't seriously afraid of heights!
Look for original ideas that might surprise your date. It could even be a surprise picnic where you drive to a scenic but quiet location. If you've dated for a while then you may even coax them into wearing a light blindfold while you travel and then unveil a picturesque scene upon arrival. For something fun and energising try some dance lessons together. Salsa dancing has gained in popularity in recent years and could be a great way to get closer while learning something new together. It may also create a lot of close romantic moments where you'll both be staring into each other's eyes.
Another idea is to see how much you can do in a day on say $10 or $20. Maybe a cheap ferry ride down river to a park and a shared French bread roll and coffee. Bring along a backpack with a blanket, some drinking water, and perhaps a frisbee for some playful exercise. A poetry book can be a surprise addition or even a camera to take turns posing for shots that can provide memories to laugh about later, perhaps on future dates. Look for some free music in a park where you can both just nestle together on your blanket and let the music work some magic.
Try looking through a cookbook together, perhaps in a bookshop you both visit, or even one of your own, and select some dishes for a meal the two of you can make. You can both have some fun shopping for the ingredients and then prepare the meal together with a little light music playing and a nice bottle of wine to build the mood. Sitting across from one another at a candlelit table while reminiscing about the day's activities is a sure way to build your romantic bonds and let the seeds of love begin to grow.
Something simple yet highly romantic could be just to take a blanket and a bottle of wine to a park or beach and enjoy a sunset together while sipping wine. An added touch could be a surprise flower or even a poem you've written to recite, just at the right moment, with the light dimming and the passion rising. A night away at a hotel in a beautiful remote location is a wonderful romantic date but only for those who have started to build their relationship and not for the first few dates. It might be a great way to take the next step in building bonds of love between you.
There are so many ideas for romantic dates that the list could be endless. The main goal is to find things that will bring you together while creating a mood for romance. Bonds of friendship and trust can then develop and you'll have things around you to distract from awkward moments. You are creating a path of love and may even have the possibility of marriage ahead, so look for opportunities to build bonds together by finding mutual interests. The romantic moments that happen on your dates will become fond memories that will be cherished in your hearts as you grow together as a couple.
