Romantic Date Ideas

Dating is stressful enough without having to consistently come up with unique and romantice date ideas. So, we've done the work for you! Our list of date ideas are separated by the type of date that you want. For instance, if you want an adventurous, outdoorsy date, then browse our 'Active Dates' category. Our date ideas are meant to inspire you and get your creative juices flowing. While some dates are likley to be taken literally (ie 'go to a movie'), many you can modify to fit you, your date, and your occassion (if there is one). No matter what you do on your date or where you go, the key to a romantic date is in the details. Hold the door open for her. Look into his eyes. Walk hand-in-hand. Pay attention to the little romantic details and you're in for a romantic date.


Springtime Romance -- Spring is in the air and it's time for love. It's a time of renewal and growth, of things fresh and new, and of blossoming romance. Here are some romantic ideas to liven up your spring:

  • Skip out of work early one afternoon and picnic in a field of wildflowers.
  • Give her a bouquet of freshly picked tulips.
  • Frolic like kids together and fly a kite in a local park.
  • Make a dinner date at a restaurant that has outdoor seating.
  • Plant a tree together and carve your initials in the trunk. You can watch your love grow as the tree grows.
  • Get outside one evening and take a walk hand-in-hand. There's no better way to enjoy a springtime sunset.
  • Visit a strawberry patch and pick berries. Enjoy them later with a glass of champagne -- in bed.
