How to Make Your Dates Memorable

First dates are often nerve-wracking experiences. Making mundane plans, such as going out for dinner or a drink, can help take the edge off by putting both parties in a familiar experience. Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen first met for a drink and have been married for the last 10 years.

A critical and oft-overlooked point in a relationship is the period after the first few dates. It’s during this time that a bond will either begin to form (or start to deepen if you’re lucky enough to hit it off right away) between the two of you. At this point, it’s time to start coming up with less interview-y dates and start shifting towards having fun together. Here are a few ideas from Datingly.com, the hottest most inclusive new dating site, on how to keep things exciting in your budding relationship.

Engage in Novel Activities

To keep things moving the direction you want, you need to plan dates that are new and exciting. It can be helpful to draw upon some similar interests in this phase. For example, if you’re both outdoorsy types, do something along those lines. The point is to start doing things together that you both enjoy.

Take Turns Planning Dates

A great way to learn about someone while letting them get to know you is to take turns planning dates. It can be a lot of fun when you get to alternate feeling the surprise of what your day or night will entail.

Expensive Does Not Equal Fun

You don’t have to spend a lot of money for a date to be worthwhile. Dating is about getting to know someone and enjoying the time you spend together. Community theatre or other local events can be a fun way to spend an evening without breaking the bank, as can dinner, drinks, and good conversation at home.

The period in a relationship after the first few dates is when you get a chance to really get to know someone. Of course, in today’s helter skelter world, it can be hard to meet someone, let alone start a relationship. With Datingly.com, you have the opportunity to chat with anyone, anytime.
