Those early dates can always be a difficult experience. A lot of it is testing the water, seeing is your personalities are compatible. However, that can be particularly difficult if you’re just relying on talking about things. If you want to really get to know someone, you need to see them in the middle of a real experience. You need to create shared memories and see if they can really get the sparks flowing. Going out for some real entertainment is one of the best ways of doing that.
Take them to a real show
There’s something of a stigma about going out to the theatre on a date. First, there’s a misguided idea that it’s just not for guys. However, we can’t think of many guys that won’t be enraptured in the timeless tragedy of the Lion King or the epic scope of love and loss in Les Miserables. You can pick up Hamilton tickets or enjoy a whole range of other shows. There’s something much more real and eventful about going to the theatre than the cinema. You’re guaranteed to walk out with a lot more to talk about. Plus, you get the benefit of showing one another that you’re open to a bit of real culture.
Discover the places where the music really comes alive
If you want an experience that’s unique, then you only need to look at your local music scene. Everywhere has its unique hotspots. Wherever you are, you just need to find the place where the music lovers congregate. You get to experience something new and possibly discover your next big musical obsession. Open mic nights give you the opportunity to support local talent and enjoy something new in a casual kind of setting as well. If the both of you happen to be music lovers, then it’s sure to inspire some animated conversations after. Just make sure that things don’t get too opinionated or it might be an early night for both of you.
Get your feet moving
You don’t necessarily have to do much talking at all, either. If you decide to let your bodies do the talking. Don’t get too excited, we’re talking about taking them out for a dancing date. Even if neither of you is particularly good at dancing, it can be a magical experience. For one, you have the comic element of it. But you also build a real connection by learning to move your bodies in sync. If you make a regular thing out of it, you might even learn to get quite good together. That sense of accomplishment is only going to do wonders for the chemistry between you do. Sometimes, you just need a bit of dancing to go along with the music.
Once you’ve gone out and enjoyed a night of dazzling entertainment with someone, you can really start building a proper bond. You’ll have shared tastes and memories to keep talking about for years to come. Plus, it gives you the opportunity to stop worrying about every little thing you say.
