The #1 date in the U.S. (and probably many other places in the world) is dinner and a movie. No wonder our divorce/break-up rate is so high.
Think about it, for 2 hours you are letting a screen entertain you and you have zero communication with each other.
On top of that the magic of movie making creates some very unrealistic scenarios. It sets you up to see your real life as “boring”.
While a movie might spark some decent discussion, there are far better date ideas that will bring up far more meaningful conversation.
One of the chief problems with the dinner/movie scenario is the regularity of it. Even with lovemaking, if you do the exact same thing every time — it
becomes a bit BLAH!
If you spice up your dating (1st date or 1000th date) your relationship will be fresh, exciting and full of fun.
Check Out Michael Webb’s famous date ideas HERE:
Not too long ago I came across Michael Webb. He was invited by Oprah to be on her show a few years back because he is one of the world’s top experts on helping couples create and keep romance in their relationships.
A great date idea that I borrowed from Michael was to have a date making homemade ice cream from scratch.
We found a good recipe and went shopping for the ingredients. We also bought some fun toppings – candy bars we could chop up and fresh fruit. We went home and had great conversation while we were making it and eating it.
We both agreed it was FAR BETTER than a movie/dinner (and so much cheaper).
Michael has compiled over 300 really creative date ideas (most costing $20 or less).
