For the fitness lovers out there, there’s nothing sexier than getting active with your lover (not just in the bedroom, wink wink!), and what better way to get active that planning fun physical dates?
Not only will active dates get your heart racing (not just for each other), but they’ll help encourage teamwork between you as a couple, build trust with one another, improve general health, and give you an opportunity to get out and try new things.
So, find yourself some free dating websites, hunt out a fitness-loving suitor, and get ready to embark on these seven active dates to get you moving…
An afternoon of hiking
Show your date your active, adventurous, nature-loving side by whisking them away for an afternoon of hiking. For those of you in the honeymoon period of getting to know each other, it’s a great opportunity for lengthy conversations and connecting with one another. If you’ve been seeing each other for a while, why not add a silly spin by creating a checklist of things to spot en route, competing in a race to the tops of hills, or fighting for the most Instagram-worthy photograph. Top off the date with a picnic for bonus romance points!
Dance the night away
I’m a firm believer that a good ol’ boogie is a sure-fire way to bring a smile to the face, no matter how skilled you are. Whether you head to the club, find a lesson for newbies, or even just stick on some tunes in the comfort of your own home, busting a move together is great way to spend a date. The best part? With so many genres of dance, you can mix it up and pick a different style each date night. Give a salsa class a go, indulge in a waltz in your kitchen, maybe even riverdance in the street, or how about some freestyle in the bedroom (oi oiiii).
Zap, zap – laser tag!
Even as an adult, a session at laser tag fills me with an insane amount of joy, and believe me when I say you are going to burn some serious calories. Grab a laser gun, channel your inner action movie star, and get ready for an hour of chasing each other in the dark… sounds kinda sexy, right? And if you’re anything like me, things are gonna get competitive. May the best dater win!
Make a (paint!) splash at paintballing
Calling all nineties babies. Remember that scene in 10 Things I Hate About You, where Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger canoodle amongst the hair whilst covered in an array of coloured paints? Did anyone dream of such a thing happening to them? Yeah, me too. That’s where paintballing comes in. Release your mischievous side and compete with your new love interest to be paintballing champion. If you’re a more established couple, make this an opportunity to invite friends and their significant others along too for a big, messy group date.
A wheely nice bike ride
Why not take a load off your feet and instead opt for a date on wheels? Whether you’re dating in Hull like me or embarking on some Nottinghamshire dating, you’re sure to find a beautiful park or trail for a chilled out bike ride. Cycling is a great way to cover a lot of ground and see more of your beautiful surroundings, all while enjoying easy chat long the way.
Tennis uses the term love for a reason…
When the weather is good, tennis is the perfect outdoor activity. (Or, of course, opt for an indoor court when the weather isn’t so great!) It’s an easy sport to get the hang of, so grab your racquet, don your best trainers, and head to the court for some competitive – but flirty – fun. Up the ante by inviting another couple to join you for a sweat-inducing double date.
If you’re up for a challenge, suggest a rock climbing date to your new love interest. It’s an awesome way to get to know each other without feeling too much pressure – attempting a new climb is perfect way to fill any conversation gaps that might occur. Plus, if you’re lucky, you might get to eye up some nice angles of your date… 😉
