ABC Date Ideas

5 Date Ideas Beginning with D

Well we’re up to week D and Den seems to be stuck on what to do. So I’m posting this not least to give him some ideas of where to take me for date night this week! Stay tuned for our date review of whatever this particular alphabet date will end up being.

D is for Dessert Only
Eat dinner at home and then head out on the town and splurge on yummy desserts in a cosy corner at a swanky restaurant.

D is for Dinner
Cook your sweetie a three-course dinner at home (preferably laced with aphrodisiac ingredients like asparagus, oysters, strawberries and chocolate). Light candles, play romantic music and make an effort to get dressed up for each other.

A romantic date night at the drive-ins

D is for Driving Range
Assuming you’re both in a spirited mood, head out to your local driving range and spend your night hitting a bucket of balls. Get close by giving your sweetie golf swing pointers. Go for coffee afterwards and giggle the night away.

D is for Drive-ins
Pack your own snacks, take a blanket for snuggling under and head to the drive-ins for a romantic night at the movies! Make sure you go see something your date wants to see (no room for selfishness on date night!). If it’s a nice night, you might want to consider the Drive-in for the New Millennium.

D is for Donate Blood
Now, it’s not one of our most popular dates but if you’ve been seeing your date for awhile now, it’s a lovely, charitable thing to do. Guaranteed to make you feel warm and fuzzy inside (if not a little light-headed). And free! They even give you cookies and juice afterward! Take a stroll in a park when you’re done.

    Dancing Lessons.
    What better way to spin your date around? And around! And around! It’s a great way to spend quality time and become more comfortable with each other.

    I was thinking more along the lines of a dollar date. First the dollar movie, then the dollar store, then a dollar menu at arbys or something. 6 bucks, and you’ve got a date!

    Patrick – Dancing is a great one, I love a good salsa class for a date! Perhaps some sangria afterwards to cool down…

    Laren, everybody loves doughnuts! Maybe you could even make doughnuts for date night?

    Chris – Dollar date is perfect! Where on earth do you find a dollar movie? We don’t have them here in Aus!

    Dancing is the best way to get to know person without speaking :)

    For this, I’m taking my boyfriend on a ‘deaf’ date.
    I myself am hearing impaired, and he’s always been so supportive, so this date is a little more closer to the heart than some may be.
    For this date, I’m going to buy two note books and pens, and write him a letter explaining that on this date we are both deaf, and we can only communicate through these notepads. Then, we get to keep the books, and in the future look back on the great night we had, and what we talked about.

    Jamee,that’s a wonderful idea! My father was Deaf (he passed away a long time ago) but my mother is hearing and that’s exactly how they communicated when they were first dating! Let us know how it goes!
