Some Date / Hangout Ideas

• Agree to communicate by any other means EXCEPT talking (writing, drawing, miming, sign language, typing, etc are allowed); can make noises & laugh; can only talk toward the end
• Play at park; swing; picnic; climb trees; slide; sandbox; etc
• Long walks (holding hands :])
• Go someplace peaceful & cuddle together in a blanket; watch stars / sunset / waves / clouds / sunrise / people / etc.
• Fake tattoo each other; get real ones together? (don’t have to be related to the other’s tattoo, just be there for them)
• Get cute 50¢ rings from vending machines
• Chinese takeout (or whatever food) & a movie
• Make dinner together; set table (candles, etc) / dress up fancy & eat together (even simple things like mac n’ cheese)
• Video game marathons
• Instrument jam sessions
• Night swimming
• Take the long way home; windows down, music off / low or even loud to sing along together
• Lay in the grass & watch the clouds; explain to each other clouds that look like other things
• Pet stores, Humane Society, The Pound; play with the animals
• Discover new music together; lay on the floor / in bed listening
• Make a craft; paint, stencil, spray paint, pop paint filled balloons with darts. Do art together!
• Pick up new hobbies together / things you wouldn’t normally do. Try something new, for the shared experience
• Take pictures together / of each other; video tape each other and laugh
• Zoo; amusement park; concert; arcade; bowling; go karts; putt-putt; batting cages; sporting event; rock climbing; bonfire; hike; collect flowers to press / dry; catch / release bugs; kayaking; play in the snow
• Window shopping; coin flip – go someplace, park, flip a coin to see who goes first. First person flips coin – heads we go left, tails we go right. That person gets to choose the first store to go into along the way in whichever direction we end up going. After each store, the other person flips the coin and chooses the next place to stop. Each take turns deciding where to go into. A good way to find out what the other likes and dislikes (because you might get dragged into a store you skipped because the other person got to head back and wanted to go in there 😛 )
