Make Your Next Date Night Best Ever

Guys, do you ever have a hard time thinking of something special to do with your lady?  It’s a stereotype that guys can’t come up with anything, and maybe there’s a general merit to that stereotype.  After all, there are a bunch of blogs out there for guys who need help.

It’s easy to get into a rhythm where everything is comfortable and common.  Some people call that a rut.  Maybe you find yourself in that situation, or maybe you just want something new to do.  This post is going to give you a couple more ideas to make your next date night one of the best you’ve had yet.

Do Something Different

It’s easy to buy her flowers every once in a while.  Every so often, your night out is dinner and a movie (and places like Cinebistro make that all too easy).  If that’s your normal, don’t do that next time.  Think of something else.  It’s not as hard as you think.

Think of something you’ve never done before.  Here are a few ideas to get you going:

  • Find a museum in your city you’ve never been to, especially if it’s about a topic she’s interested in.
  • Go to the zoo!  Everyone loves seeing cute animals.
  • Take an art class at a local studio, or find an interesting home improvement workshop if that’s your (collective) thing.
  • Go dancing! Don’t dance? Find some classes and dedicate a few weekends to learning something new.

If you spend some time looking, you’ll find any number of ideas for something new to do with your lady. Show her you can go out of your comfort zone!

Cook Her a Dinner

Going out to dinner is very easy.  Sometimes it’s hard to find a new restaurant, but why not eat in next time?  Even if you don’t cook, you can learn quickly how to prepare something that she’ll love.  For several weeks before the date night, pay attention to what she says about food.  Don’t ask her what she likes, unless it fits naturally in the conversation.  Take note of what she says she likes or has always wanted to try.

Once you have an idea about what you might want to cook, find some recipes.  Sites like Epicurious will get you far.  If you know someone who cooks well, ask for advice.  The meal doesn’t have to be fancy.  If you keep it simple but delicious, she’ll love it.  This is not the time to try a beef Wellington, but a nice roasted chicken or salmon can turn out nicely.

Just before you eat, spice up the table with a couple candles and a bouquet of flowers that she likes.

Surprise Her with a Massage

Especially if it’s something you don’t usually do, a nice massage will be something she’ll love.  If you don’t know how, you can find some inexpensive books to learn some techniques.  Youtube has a plethora of massage videos as well.  You’ll get some quick tips pretty easily, and you’ll learn simple massage techniques quickly.

If you’re into new things, you could try out a new massage fad called Nuru Massage.  It’s a very interesting concept – you slather both bodies up with the Nuru gel and massage each other at the same time.  You don’t use your hands; you use your bodies.  It’s adventurous, but it could be fun!

Just Do Something

The most important thing to remember is to just do something different.  Here are a few ideas for you to consider, but if you don’t like these, a simple search will help you find more ideas that you might like better.  Surprise her with whatever it is, and she’ll love it!  Your next date night will be the best yet.
