It’s time to jump into dating and spring forth because love is in bloom!

You can still date virtually, of course, if you want to stay super safe. But if you are willing to meet a date in person (while keeping your distance and masking), we have some ideas for how to do that safely as well. Since the weather is getting warmer, that’s a plus for outdoor activities.

1. Have a Picnic at a Park, Beach, or Even Your Backyard

Lay a blanket down in a beautiful location and enjoy some of your favorite goodies. You can prepare your own picnic meal or plan to share a purchased bounty.

The food someone enjoys says a lot about them, so take this as an opportunity to learn new things about each other. You can tease them by saying something like, “Oh no, you eat _?! That’s a dealbreaker.” Don’t forget to say it in a flirty way, and maybe throw in a wink.

Both of you can bring something homemade, or you can buy a bunch of goodies from your local market.

You may even introduce your date to something they’ve never eaten before. Food can be very sensuous, and you can take turns expressing your enjoyment of a bite of food. One beautiful, scrumptious raspberry can become highly erotic. Can you see how this may create an opportunity to play, tease, and increase your attraction to each other?

2. Ride Your Bikes or Rent Scooters and Tour the Town

Take your date to a few popular locations around town and explain what these locations mean to you. Maybe you love birdwatching and you know a spot where you two can see some unique birds. Or maybe you know the best place to watch the sunset.

Challenge your date to a race and let her win. Later you can tease her and admit to your cycling prowess and that you didn’t want to show her up. Laughter is guaranteed to create closeness.

3. Go on an Invigorating Hike

If you and your date are really active people, a challenging hike is the way to go. Your connection to each other grows when you appreciate nature and spend time together being active. You can choose a favorite hike or a new one, but make sure you take plenty of water and healthy snacks.

If neither of you is very active, a simple walk can provide an opportunity to learn more about each other. Come prepared with some casual questions if this is a first date. If you’ve been hanging out for some time, come prepared with some deeper questions.

4. Do Yoga in a Park, Your Backyard, or During an Outdoor Class

Yoga can be relaxing, which can relieve some of the stress people have on dates. If you’re not a yogi, just have fun with it and go with the flow. You never know if this will become a regular activity for you and your date

5. Share Your Love of Animals and Take Your Dogs For a Walk

This isn’t necessarily the best for a first date in case one of the dogs misbehaves. But if your dogs get along, a walk together can be fun and give you an opportunity to connect with your date and fur babies at the same time.

6. Read a Book Together

If you are both into literature, it can be fun to read a book together out loud. You can even act out some of the scenes if you’re outgoing. Don’t be afraid to show your corny side and have fun.

Taking turns reading a book can be a sensual experience.

Reading over her shoulder can get quite cozy and hot, and play acting may be an entryway for some future sexual fantasies.

7. Create a Treasure hunt or Go Geocaching

If you’ve been dating for a while, a treasure hunt is a great way to show that you’ve been paying attention to what your new girlfriend likes. Hide gifts in multiple locations, and create a set of written clues to guide her to the gifts. Each gift leaves a clue to the next and so on.

It’s as much fun to be the giver as it is to be the receiver. When it’s you doing the giving, you can watch her figure out the clues and hunt for the gifts . The gifts don’t need to be expensive. They can be fun and silly as well as practical. The fun is in the hunt.

Geocaching is another type of hunt more geared toward a shared online community treasure hunt. According to Wikipedia, “Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity in which participants use GPS on a mobile device to hide and seek containers, called “geocaches” or “caches,” at specific locations marked by coordinates all over the world. You login and find what is available in your area.” I haven’t done this one yet, but my next date may just include geocaching!

8. Participate in an Activity You Loved as a Kid

Toss a coin to see who gets to pick the first activity. You can introduce your date to whatever floats your boat.

It can be swinging on the swings at the park, rollerblading around the neighborhood, or hunting for “gold” in the creek. Be open and creative, and have fun.

Once you’re done with your activity, have her pick an activity she loved as a child. This is a great way to get to know one another.

9. Entertain Each Other with Your Individual Talents

Set up a performance evening in the backyard and you both can show off your talents. Sing, dance, perform stand-up comedy, recite poetry, play the ukulele, or simply do your best British accent.

We all have talents, but don’t judge yourself if you can’t carry a tune or play an instrument. You have talents, and this is a great time to figure out what they are.

10. Have a Cup of Coffee or Glass of Wine Over Zoom

If things are progressing well over phone and text and you’re ready to meet (but not in person yet), virtual dates have become the new normal. These can take place over FaceTime, Zoom, Skype, or Google Hangouts.

Having a drink with you on a video date can ease the tension.

You’ll finally get to put a face to the voice to see if there is a spark of chemistry. Make a cup of coffee or pour yourself a glass of wine. Share with each other how you take your coffee or what type of wine you like. This opens the conversation and lightens the mood.

11. Read a Chapter a Night Together Over the Phone Before Bed

Take turns reading a chapter of a book before bed each night. You get to hear her voice before falling asleep and see how sensuous a reader she can be.

Ask her why she chose this book and dig into her motivation. Caution: This can be a dangerously, sensual experience or one that puts her to sleep in a good way ;).

12. Show Her Around Your Neighborhood via FaceTime

Show her what you love about the area you live in. Show her what you see and hear all the time. Tell her how it feels to share these little parts of your life with her. Turn the mundane and routine into extraordinary.

13. Send Her Photos and Short Texts Chronicling Your Day

Take a selfie of you waking up. Then a pic of your breakfast, even if it’s only a cup of coffee. Shoot a short video of a walk with your dog. You get the idea. But make sure to make it genuine, not some false portrayal of your life.

Showing her an entire day brings you closer, and she gets to experience life with you. Ask her what she thinks of your routine. Then have her show you glimpses into her life.

14. Discuss Past Vacations, and Daydream About Traveling Together

Share your favorite past adventures with her, and ask her about hers. Where did you go? What made her choose that place? What did you see? How did these trips make her feel? Why was that city important for you to go to?

It can be fun to daydream about the first trip you can take together.

Then talk to each other about the first place you want to travel to together after COVID.

15. Watch a Movie Together in Separate Places

Whether you use FaceTime, Zoom, Skype, or Google Hangouts, pick a day to have a movie night together… but in separate places. Make some popcorn and have some soda and candy nearby so it feels real. This way you can share laughs, tears, surprises, and other emotions.

Discuss the movie afterward, and then turn that into a bigger conversation about what you both are watching on TV or reading at the moment. You can learn a lot about your date by knowing what she watches and reads.

Is she into comedy, drama, horror, or adventure? Is she into serious literature, autobiographies, romance, or nonfiction? Does she binge watch or have a regular viewing schedule? What about you? Do you even read at all? She may encourage you to expand your horizons and visa versa.

16. Take Personality Tests Together

There are multiple personality tests out there, so pick one or two and take them together. Then share your results. It’s fun to talk about your results even if they are not 100% accurate. Understanding your type may help you match with a partner or better understand when you have challenges with them.

My favorite personality test right now is the Enneagram System. My last girlfriend recommended it, and the results opened my eyes to so many things and gave me a new perspective on my early focus in life.

I also highly recommend The 5 Love Languages. Can you imagine how valuable it is to know your new partner’s preferred way of expressing love?

Whatever You Do, Have Fun and Just Focus on Getting to Know Someone New

Dating is not a way to set up someone to fail. Dating is not a test. Dating is an adventure. You want to open your heart and mind to another person to learn, grow, and have fun. The process of dating should be about connecting with another human being, so enjoy it. Happy dating and happy love!
