Walk the Botanical Gardens, Zoo, or Park
Nothing cements a romantic bond like nature, but not everyone wants to go for a three-mile hike on their first date—or ever. Fortunately, that’s what botanical gardens, zoos, and parks are for!
The two of you can get your warm-weather nature fix without the cost of ticks, mosquitos, and getting lost in the mountains. And, just as importantly for those who need to be always-connected, you even get to keep your cell service!
If you do this, focus on the fun and the wonder all around you rather than talking about relationship issues, your job, or past lovers. Remaining externally focused will help the two of you enjoy the experience—and forming good memories with someone is a big step toward getting another date.
Ask your date what they think of their surroundings, whether it’s the exotic plants, interesting animals, or beautiful locales. Appreciate what they enjoy alongside them.
Whatever you do, make sure you stay positive, upbeat, and appreciative of the nature around you and the beautiful person beside you, and you’ll find yourself on a perfect summer date.
