Dating Over 40: 5 Date Ideas To Feel Young Again
Remember when you were dating as a young person? It was exciting, fun, and you were giddy with anticipation. You may think that now that you are in your 40s, your dates have to be the traditional dinner and movies date. This is not the case! Whether you are going on your first date with someone new, your fifth date, or maybe you are going on a date night with your spouse, Maturedating.com has come up with five date ideas for mature singles that will have you feeling like you’re dating in your youth again.
1. Take a Cruise at Sunset
Surprise your partner with a date on the water. When you book a dinner cruise at sunset, you are surrounded by the beautiful sunset reflecting on the water, delicious food, no distractions, and a cool breeze. What more could you possibly ask for in a romantic date?
2. Sports Game
Whether it is a professional sports game, a college game, or just going to support your local high school, there is an air of enthusiasm that you just can’t get anywhere else. This is an especially good date idea if your date is a sports fan… It’s almost a no brainer!
Sports games are great first date ideas because you don’t have to sit in awkward silence. You can cheer, chant, and have fun. Plus, think of how fun it could be if you’re caught on the Kiss Cam! Talk about breaking the touch barrier easily and painlessly.
3. Watch a Movie
Before you start groaning, give it some thought. Usually when you watch a movie, it is something new and it is in the theater. However, in order to feel young again, forego the new movies and find a theater that plays classic movies late at night. If you’re lucky enough to live near a drive thru, then you can definitely enjoy a bit of fun, if you know what we mean.
4. Play Mini-Golf
Mini-golf is a fun way to get out there, enjoy nice weather, get to know one another (or reconnect if you are going on a date with someone you’re already dating), and do it inexpensively! You can make the game a little more interesting by placing a friendly wager on the game. For example, you can make the loser give the winner a massage or make a delicious dinner of the winner’s choice.
5. Go Dancing
Whether you already know how to dance or you want to learn, by planning a dancing date, you can get physical with one another, enjoy some good music, and strut your stuff (if you are already a good dancer). If your partner doesn’t know how to dance and you want to brush up on your skills, you can make an appointment for dance class. There are countless salsa or ballroom dance classes available, but you can find a slew of other dance classes available.
