Deciding what to do for a first date with someone you don’t know that well can be hard, and there’s so much to consider – the cinema is a classic, but might not offer the opportunities to talk and get to know each other that a first date should; dinner is also popular, but the pressure’s really on when you’re sitting opposite each other trying not to spill anything down yourself and hoping your table manners are up to scratch.
But help is at hand, as an experience from Activity Superstore makes a great first date idea and you can choose one which gives you a chance to try something different together, and if things work out it will be a great story to tell the grandchildren. For example, once you’ve spent an afternoon on a segway experience, you’re bound to have plenty to talk about and your date will be impressed with your ingenuity and the amount of fun they have had, plus they will have a certificate to remind them of the day. Once you’re both on your segways learning how to control these incredible little machines, you’ll definitely be making great memories together and that’s an ideal basis for a successful date.
Or you could take a City Explorer tour on a bus – whether you live in the same city or want to discover somewhere new to both of you, you simply catch the city explorer bus and enjoy the informative commentary which will teach you all you need to know about the local area and its history. For a little more privacy, you can hop on and off at landmarks along the way to explore further and spend a little time together finding out what makes each of you tick.
Maybe you’d like to show your date your refined side, in which case you can’t get more elegant than a traditional afternoon tea for two – indulging in this great British tradition is certainly something you’ll never forget, and a really enjoyable way to learn more about each other over the kind of high tea you normally only see on television. Whether you have a traditional approach to courting or just enjoy trying something a little different from the norm, an afternoon tea experience is definitely something which will impress your date and give your time together a touch of class.
