Does the idea of having dates after you have passed the 50 make you nervous? Well, that feeling is natural for adults of any age, especially if you're out of practice.
Regardless of whether you are 16 or 65, the best way to enjoy a first date is to keep an open mind, focus on the things you have in common, and be clear, the goal is simply to have a good time.
Get up and dance! No matter if you are an expert dancer or if you have two left feet, dancing is a great way to get close to each other, have fun and see if there is chemistry. Many salons offer dance lessons before the real dancing begins so the people can take a little rust off and also learn new moves!
Take out the tablecloths! There's nothing more romantic than a picnic in a beautiful place! Make it more special by buying the food and wine together to fill the basket. This is a great opportunity to share some of your favorite things with someone new to you.
Which causes do you care for? If both support the same causes, go together to a charity event. You will have the opportunity to share with others, which will help ease the pressure of the first date, and will also contribute to something to which you both mind!
Move! Maybe you both like tennis or golf, or maybe just a walk. To share periods of physical activity on the first date can help to create a bond that brings you closer while keeping fit.
Is this art? Create an artistic evening for two adults in the first date, going to an art gallery or visiting a museum. Everyone has an opinion about art, so the date will secure smooth conversion.
Leave everything and go sailing! Rent kayaks, a sailing boat or canoe and get ready in a mini cruise style journey across a lake or a nearby pond. Being in the water will increase your perspectives and make easier to overcome any awkward moment.
Market! Visit an agricultural fair or a flea market in your community. Visit the many booths and tents, there is so much there to see and talk about, it will be interesting and can provide a good conversation for the entire date.
Visit the city! To vary the routine, take a walk through your community or city. You will find many fun things to do together, and promote the new relationship as you learn about each other; maintain a quiet and relaxed evening.
Enjoy a good glass of wine. Whether you're a wine connoisseur or have trouble determining if it is a Cabernet or a Merlot, visit a local winery or to attend a wine tasting is a great way to know each other better while learning something new and try one of the real pleasures of life!
Literary meetings. If you both enjoy reading, this is a typical idea for an elders date. Attend a reading session in a nearby bookstore and then compare your notes about your favorite books and authors. Keep up the date with a coffee and dessert and have a first date that could be the beginning of a chapter in your life.
