If you’re dating this holiday season, don’t forget that there are so many seasonal places and activities to enjoy and it’s a great time not only date, but to do some of the things you enjoy holiday spirit. If you want dating to be fun, it’s good to use a little creativity and mix things up!
- Ice skating. This activity is not just for people living near frozen ponds anymore! Check your local areas for where they might be – usually in parking lots that aren’t being used. Try going there at night when the crowd is a little older and the stars are out – it’s also a great chance to have a warm drink at a nearby bar afterwards.
- Visiting decorated neighborhoods. Pick a neighborhood and go for a walk or drive. Some streets go all-out and post their celebrations in the paper, so check your local listings. There’s nothing to put you in a holiday mood like a stroll in the cool air along a lit-up street.
- Staying home with a cup of coffee. If you’re sick of the usual restaurants, try staying home instead. There’s nothing like decorating your own house and cooking delicious food. Put on a movie and your night is complete.
- Holiday shopping. While you might not tolerate the crowds when you’re by yourself, going with a date could make the whole experience better. If you have a hard time choosing gifts for friends and family, then going with your date could turn it into an adventure. Don’t choose a standard mall –pick a quirky street with eclectic shops, or go to an outdoor market. You can find bargains at second-hand stores and art galleries, too – items you’d never thought of. It will spark your creativity. Plus, you can check it off your holiday to do list.
