A good date is the highlight of your week; there’s so much to look forward to, from your date arriving to him chivalrously opening the door to you to spending the night in engaging conversation. Finding the perfect place to host your date is key to making sure you’re having a relaxing and enjoyable experience, but in winter your options are sometimes a bit limited depending on weather, climate, and whether or not certain activities are closed. Check out the list of top dating spots in winter for some great suggestions on where to invite your new man!
- A Winter Walk
If the weather isn’t too chilly, a winter walk can be an absolutely beautiful date. Try to go in mid-day when the sun is out and the day is at its warmest point and just take a few minutes to soak in the snow-covered streets and frosted trees. Maybe you’ll even get into a snowball fight, and nothing is more frisky and fun than that!
- Ice Skating Rink
Ice skating is a great winter date for people to enjoy from anywhere. If you’re not a huge skater, you can cling to your man’s wrist to help you balance (very cute!), and if you are, you guys can race or practice your favorite tricks on the ice! End with some warm hot chocolate to keep you cozy and warmed up before you head to the next portion of your date!
- Holiday Light Displays
Winter is a great season for many different detailed and creative holiday light displays. From full tableaus to houses with lights and outdoor decorations, you can put on your favorite winter music and take a themed drive through all the different holiday light displays and decorations in your area for some very exciting and creative winter date locations!
- Hockey Games
Are you or your man hockey fans? Winter is a great time to catch a local hockey game and settle into an exciting night of sports and cheer! You can buy fan favorite food like hot dogs and pretzels and cheer on your local hockey team with vigor! The high-energy games are sure to captivate both you and your man.
Sledding is a great way to open up your inner child and enjoy some quality time with your significant other. There’s plenty of tubing places around that offer incredible slopes and fun tubing options in addition to just your local hill and sled, so you can pick out many different local hills and invite your man over for a fun sledding adventure straight out of your childhood!
- Take a Winter Cooking Class
Indoor dates are a good idea as the weather starts to drop. Make a hobby fun for both you and your man by taking a cooking class together. Practice making a new dish or learning how to craft a new type of cuisine together, then take your skills to the dinner table the next week and cook a warm, welcoming meal for each other topped off with some good wine and good dessert.
- Take a Painting Class
Are you creatively minded? Taking a painting class can be very fun and inspiring to you and your man as well as providing you with a fun way to get personal and relaxed from the warm safety of the indoors. Whether you’re taking a formal class or simply following along to a Bob Ross tutorial, you can have fun getting artsy and encouraging each other on!
- Head to an Aquarium
Something about seeing all the different fish and other aquatic creatures is both humbling and inspiring. Bringing your man along with you is a great way to explore your inner child and still enjoy the things that excite you all. From schools of colorful fish to penguins and more, you can enjoy the colorful parts of the sea from the warm comfort of indoors and some exciting and engaging activities as well.
The most important part of your winter date is that it gives you and your man time to enjoy each other’s company and time in a personal and intimate way. Any of these date ideas will help you connect with your new beau, so try them out and have fun getting to know your new date!
