PART II - Fun first or second date ideas

#11. Go to a sporting event

Why not go and see a sporting event, it might be tennis at Wimbledon or the O2 arena, 20/20 cricket at Lords, a football match. Enjoy the experience and have fun shouting for your favourite team on the day.

#12. Visit a zoo

Everyone loves to watch animals of all shapes and sizes as they are so much fun! It’s a great excuse to be able to relive those childhood memories.  Plus with so many animals you will have plenty to talk about.  London obviously has a great zoo but there are plenty more scattered throughout the country.

#13. Try a painting class

Why not try a painting class together?  You don’t even have to be any good at it to make it fun, in fact the worst you are the funnier it will be.  If you don’t want to ruin an art class, why not have a go yourself, all you need is some white paper, a few pencils, some paints and a great view to paint!  Go on explore that inner artist, most people also find art is very good at destressing.

#14. Go bowling

It’s a great activity that anyone can have a good time doing. Even if you are no good it doesn’t even matter. Just have fun having a go.  You can even put a silly bet on it which is not dependent on the score, like the one who gets the most gutter balls wins!

#15. Karaoke

If you’re both into your singing why not head to a Karaoke bar and sing the night away. Certainly not an activity you want to do if one of you doesn’t enjoy singing! Also try to stay clear from romantic duets such as “My heart will go on!”

#16. Live music

Why not go and watch a band in a bar.  There are plenty of gig night around, they are usually fairly inexpensive and who knows you might spot the next big band!

#17. Pool

Why not find a pub with a pool table and have a go at pool! It’s an easy game to have a go at and you don’t have to be all that good to still have a chance of winning.  In London there are several “pool bars” where they have the slightly larger American Pool tables which are great fun!

#18. Ping Pong

Similar to pool tables, bars are now beginning to introduce ping pong tables. There is already one in London and I’m sure the trend will catch on!

#19. Darts

Again on the same theme as the two above, why not go to a bar with a dart board.  There are several different games you can play on a dart board, so challenge yourself to something new and give it a go.

#20. Board Games

Either take a board game to a pub, or play it at one of your homes. Go for a “nostalgic” one from your youth, such as mouse trap, buckaroo, boggle etc.  If you don’t own one you can usually pick one up from a charity shop pretty cheap.

#21. Challenge yourselves to complete a jigsaw 

No I’m not talking about a 20 piece jigsaw, go for a 500 piece jigsaw and have a go at completing it in an evening. Depending on how difficult it is, you might have to leave it unfinished and come back to it the next night!

#22. Dance class

Perhaps not everyone’s cup of tea, but why not give dancing a go? It will be fairly relaxed and you should have a laugh trying to learn the steps. There is no such thing as two left feet! Buy guys just try not to step on your dates toes too many times!
