Going to the beach in summer is the best date option. Nobody’s concerned with your sexual orientation; everyone’s busy minding their own business. Go during the day and enjoy an iced drink while having a picnic. Or go out at night to have a stroll with the sand between your toes.
- Amusement parks
When you want to amuse your date the first time you meet them, sometimes an amusement park is the perfect option. The name says it all. You’ll always have something to do, a rollercoaster ride for the thrill, the haunted house for skin-ship that’s natural, and finally the Ferris wheel for romance; but most importantly, food, lots and lots of food.
- Wine tasting
Who doesn’t love alcohol? A good and classy way of getting tipsy without hitting the bar or club is going on a wine tasting tour, perhaps even saving a bottle to commemorate the day until dinner time.
