Spring is finally here! Itís a time of flowers, pastels, butterflies, and just generally good weather. You and your cutie should get out and enjoy some of the amazing things that spring has to offer. Dates are no longer limited to indoors and cuddly locations. Turn up the heat on your date with some activities that only spring time allows. With spring, you get all of the benefits of the sun, without the overbearing heat of the summer. Enjoy!
Beach/pool Day If you live by the beach (as I do over in sunny Southern California), then youíre in luck. It can provide a relaxing date day, or one filled with energy. (If there is no beach around, simply find a pool). Water, sun, and bathing suits! What more could you want in a date. If youíre looking for a relaxing day, bring a set of portable speakers, some reading material, or cards and board games to keep you both entertained. If you want a day filled with energy, set up a game of volleyball (on the beach or in the pool).
Biking/Skating Get your bike, skateboard, or roller blades out and work up a sweat with your date. The great thing about this activity is that you can counteract the heat by the wind that will be rushing by you. Cruise by or through a park to add in a picnic to your date.
*If you want to surprise your date with a more romantic day, find a secluded area of a park nearby and hide a picnic basket. Bike or skate over with your date and pull the picnic basket out for a lunch that is sure to be much more than they were expecting!
Flowers A unique (and cheesy) date idea. Spring conjures pictures of flowers, so take your loved one and find each other a beautiful bouquet. If you have a field with a variety of flowers nearby, then take advantage. If not, find a flower shop and explore separately. Create a bouquet for the other person and surprise them with it at the end! Flower shop owners are usually pretty useful in finding unique flowers or flowers with meaning. My personal suggestion would be to create a bouquet for your date that shows them exactly what they mean to you, in flower language!
Be a Tourist Spring (if you avoid spring break) is a great time to be a tourist. Travel your city (or a nearby large city) with your date in the beginning or end of the season. Spring break tends to be right in the middle, but it is easy to avoid!
