In the winter you can swap out the roller skates and go ice skating at a park rink. Not only is this silly date a sure-fire hit, but it’s refreshing way for the two of you to cool off in the summer heat.
Whether you want to play with the puppies at an animal shelter or help out at a soup kitchen, volunteering with your date is not only super fulfilling, but you’ll make some awesome memories in the process. Toss on a cocktail dress, grab a tie, and become whoever you’d like to be for the day!
Headgear, frizzy hair, and some freaky looking sweaters? Collect some old photos, be it baby photos or high school grad pics, and share them with your date.
Not only will it provide some good laughs but it will keep the conversation flowing.
If beer isn’t your thing many wineries offer free tours as well. Channel your inner nerd and impress your date at a local trivia night. Revisit the infamous childhood game of Truth or Dare by walking around town taking turns asking each other the age-old question.
You’ll learn tons about each other and have a total blast!
Everyone loves a cheap date—and if a date is free, well, that’s just perfection.
Light some candles, break out the lotion or oil, and give each other a nice long back-rub.
Pop some popcorn, cuddle up together on the couch, and start up a movie marathon, a.k.a. Check local listings of open houses and take a look around a dream home that you and your date could never afford.
Tip: Walk in like you own the place (just don’t get carried away and try to actually own the place). Make a bonfire, roast a marshmallow (or two, or three) and end off the evening with some stargazing—there’s nothing more romantic than that!
Whether you sound like Beyoncé or William Hung from “American Idol,” karaoke is always a great way to loosen up and have some fun!
A no-cost way to do it: Troll the app store for free apps you can download and sing along to. Find out by playing a game of poker with your date, waging with anything other than money.
