The moment has come! As lock restrictions are gradually being relaxed around the world, you may be able to finally meet someone you chat with online. But of course we still have to practice social distancing in many places and avoid being inside or in crowds – so it’s time to get creative with your data.
Some parts of the world are currently enjoying summer, which makes outdoor dates easier, but wherever you are, there are ways to have fun and get to know each other while you are safe. (In addition to the latest guidelines in your region, you can read more about personal meetings and safe travel and interaction here.) My favorite thing on the first date was a river walk, followed by hot chocolate in a riverside cafe: simple, cheap, and relaxed. You don’t have to be physically close to connect – conversation, sharing, and laughing help build intimacy. So here are my top 12 ideas for outdoor dates …
1. Have a picnic. Choose a park, natural beauty spot, or designated picnic area, and then settle down to eat and chat. Bring something to sit on and bring your own food, drinks and utensils (and hand sanitizer!) To avoid cross-contamination.
2. Take a bike tour. If you own both bicycles (rental shops may still be closed), plan a route through a park, along the coast, through some rural villages, or for the more adventurous in the field. However, stay safe – you don’t want your date to end in an ambulance!
3. Enjoy a sip outdoors. Many street cafes, pub gardens and restaurants with outdoor seating have reopened. Find out in advance about the limits and requirements of the event location. For example, the number of customers may be limited (make a reservation in this case) and you may have to pay by card.
4. Be a beach treasurer. Crowded beaches should be avoided, but if you know a place by the sea where you can distance yourself socially, what could be nicer than walking in the dunes, paddling in the surf and sitting on a dam and a bag Enjoy chips?
5. Go to the market. Many outdoor markets have reopened. So if you want to try flowers, food, fashion or furniture, make a day out of it. Chat while browsing and then visit a street food stand for snacks.
6. Take a walk. This can range from a leisurely hike through a city park and feeding the ducks to a serious mountain hike. If your date is a nature lover, why not take a nature walk? Plan toilet stops in advance and bring drinks and nibbles with you.
7. Visit a large garden. Historic houses and castles are still closed, but many of their spectacular sites have been reopened to the public. Check in advance which facilities for toilets and refreshments are available.
8. Enjoy an outdoor performance. Drive-in cinemas are reopening, while drive-in and outdoor films, concerts and comedy evenings appear to offer socially distant entertainment. You may not be able to share a car with your date yet, but an outdoor event could be an exciting date.
9. Visit a zoo or a nature reserve. Animal lover? Zoos and animal shelters open again (with restrictions for indoor enclosures). Or if you prefer to see birds and animals in their natural habitat, nature reserves and wetlands offer first-class opportunities for nature observation.
10. Get sporty. For energetic guys, there are many activities you can enjoy outdoors, from playing tennis to swimming wildly. If it’s winter you live in, sledding could be a super fun date. Or for something less challenging, how about hang gliding? Basic kites are pretty cheap and it’s an exciting way to spend a windy day – but don’t get close enough to confuse your strings!
11. Pick berries. The own fruit farms are reopened. If the weather is good, spend a few hours picking delicious berries. Relax and enjoy the fruits of your work.
12. Be a tourist in your own city. With the streets free from overseas visitors, now is the ideal time to explore your city and rediscover historical monuments and landmarks. Plan a sightseeing tour on foot – some attractions are also open to visitors again.
