Ideas for Girls:

  1. Go ice skating. If you know how to ice skate and he doesn’t, teach him. If he knows and you don’t, let him teach you. This date is great for breaking the ice because both of you will embarrass yourselves so much that you won’t help but be able to laugh. Your true personalities will show.
  2. Go for a walk, maybe some coffee after. It seems simple enough, but you’d be surprised about what you’d find out about someone if you’d just give them a chance to tell you. Besides, there’s nothing like the ambiance of a great, romantic coffee shop to get you in the mood.

Ideas for Guys:

  1. There’s nothing like a good picnic. You can’t argue with a classic.
  2. Go to see the planes take off. This may be a little difficult, but sometimes there are little nooks and crannies by the highways and roads off of the runways. You can lie down on top of the hood of the car or lay a blanket on the ground and watch as the planes fly right over your head.
