10 Christian Date Ideas
Finding things to do on a date when you're a Christian can be difficult, so here are 10 Christian date ideas. Just because you're a Christian doesn't mean that you still can't find fun things to do on dates.
- Picnic in the park. Picnics are often overlooked as date ideas. Pack a picnic meal in a basket and head to your local park. Just don't forget a blanket to sit on, and bug spray.
- Drive through the country. Fill the gas tank and take an aimless drive through any rural areas near you. Play the iPod or flip through the radio stations. Pick an obscure restaurant to stop at to eat. You'll be surprised at how much fun you'll have.
- Take a long walk. In this day and age, simple pleasures are vastly overlooked. Head to a pretty area and just go take a walk. Enjoy the beauty of nature and the company of the one you're with.
- Horseback riding. If you don't know how to ride a horse, don't worry. Horseback riding lessons are available. And lessons would still make an appropriate date.
- Go to a play. Tired of going to the movies, yet again? Then take your date to go see a different kind of show. Dinner theaters dates are a popular variation of the plain old dinner and a movie. Check your listings for one in your area.
- Go ice skating. Ice skating is something that never stops being fun, no matter how old you are. If you and your date are both novice skaters, see who can skate the longest without falling. If one of you is better than the other, then give a little lesson right then and there.
- Head out antique hunting. It's fun to furnish an imaginary home. Have a contest to see who can find the ugliest piece of furniture in the store. If you're actually looking for a new piece for your own home, enlist the help of your date.
- Take dancing lessons. Pick a type of dancing you and your date don't know how to go. Examples of this include ballroom dancing, salsa dancing and square dancing. Everyone always likes to learn something new, especially with a date.
- Enjoy an arts and crafts show. Arts and crafts shows are always interesting to go to. Failing all else, they're fun to just walk around at. And sometimes, you're surprised when you actually find something worth taking home.
- Have dinner by candlelight after you cook the dinner yourselves. Plan a night where the two of you will prepare dinner together, from start to finish. Decide what dishes you will be preparing and head to the grocery store together to gather all of the necessary ingredients. In the kitchen, decide who will be in charge of what. Once dinner is ready, set the table and light the candles. Enjoy the fruits of your labor.
