A date is always a special occasion, no matter if it is the 1st or the 500th time. Planning it a little bit, sometimes, will sound good and interesting to anyone. Going out for a lunch/dinner or a movie is something that most of the couples do. Instead, why not do something that is romantic, exciting and new?
Doing something fun on a date will not only let the two of you have a good time together, but also help you get to know each other better. There are lots of fun things a couple can do on a date. A little planning can make your dating really fun.
A date planned poorly will make your partner think that you are not organized and thoughtful. So, if ideas don't come to you and you're worried about appearing like a fool, target your common interest areas or play games to keep the fun element alive, and your date won't be a damp squib.

Fun Things to do on a First Date

Play Games

If it is your first date, then you probably don't know each other much. Why not make a questionnaire and ask each other questions? And every interesting and probably the right answer can be rewarded.
You can make sure you have fun by indulging in card games/board games that'll keep the interaction going between the two of you, by the end of the game you would have learned something more about your date.

Common Hobby to the Rescue

Discuss and figure out one common hobby that you both enjoy. It may be something like water sports or trekking. Set a date, go out and enjoy. Get to know each other better by talking in a fun environment.

Dance with Each Other

When you are out on a date, what better than dancing with your date? Talk and laugh it off as you step on each other's foot.
If you both love to dance, you could also attend a dance demo class. This is really a fun thing to do on a date. Try dancing under the stars at night in a secluded place; you'll never forget this date so soon!

Spend a Sunday Together

Enjoy a day off with each other, doing nothing. Just sit with each other doing whatever interests you both.
Watch a favorite movie, cook together, play games like scrabble or take off for a weekend, if you both are fond of traveling around. It is one of the most romantic ideas to get away from the world; just the two of you.

Cook it Up

Figure out one thing that you both have always wanted to do, but somehow could not muster enough courage. Try an extreme sport like bungee jumping, paragliding, whitewater rafting, or even snorkeling.

Do Some Charity

Enjoy spending time with kids or being in the company of old people. Enroll in a day of service at an old age home or a local library for a storytelling session for kids. Or opt to go on a cleanliness drive. Nothing is more satisfying than helping others, together.

Collecting Memories
