Tired of dinner and a movie being the star of your night out? We’re looking at a few third date ideas that’ll knock your socks off.
You’ve done date number one–dinner and a movie *classic!*. Now you decided you want to see one another again. Date number two was probably something a little more intimate to help you get to know one another better. Maybe you went for a long walk, had coffee, or went on a picnic. This was the opportunity to see whether this could really be something special. You decided that you’re definitely into one another. Now you’re stumped for third date ideas.
The third date
The third date is all about chemistry. The first date is for getting comfortable and establishing attraction. The second date you realized you actually like your date’s personality, but do you actually click? This is what the third date was made for.
Therefore, choose your third date destination carefully. You want to be in a situation where you can have some kind of physical contact, while maintaining a good balance of chatting and doing an enjoyable activity. Here are some third date ideas that have you rushing to make plans for next Friday night.
10 third dates ideas that aren’t boring
Want to wow your crush with a fun, sweet, and memorable date night? We’ve got 10 third date ideas that are going to knock your socks off and guarantee you a fourth night out together.
#1 The penny date. Sounds like a good, cheap date, right? Well, the penny doesn’t really refer to the actual cost of this third date idea. It is an excellent compass to guide you on your journey. Here’s how the penny date works. Get dressed and get into your car *or you can always make it an extra-long date night and head out on foot!*
Pick a number. For this example, we’ll say 10. Once you reach the first fork in the road, flip your penny. Heads means go right and tails means go left. Each time you come to a fork in the road, flip your penny and find out where your date will take you. Once you flipped the penny 10 times you stop in that area and make a spur of the moment date at whatever venue/park/museum/restaurant is nearby!
#2 Movie night in. Since you’ve already done two dates out in the open, why not take number three back to your place? Take your first opportunity to snuggle up together on your couch and watch a movie together. Make sure to have the best movie snacks on hand to recreate the feel of being at the theater. This means popcorn, gummies, chocolate, and an array of beverages to choose from.
#3 Food crawl. A food crawl is a great way to spend your third date because you’re always going, going, going. This tasty date night idea involves going to different restaurants for every course of your meal. Appetizers, cocktails, entree, dessert, and night cap.
Not only does this give you guys a chance to sample a wide variety of foods, it also allows you to talk the night away as you walk from venue to venue.
#4 Volunteer with pets. Before you wail out in a sing-song tone “Ugh, vol-un-teeeeeer?!” just bear with us. This good Samaritan third date idea is actually tons of fun. Head over to your local animal shelter and volunteer your time to play with the lonely pets in there.
This is a great way to talk, get to see one another in a caring/playful environment, and plus… who doesn’t want an adorable fluffy puppy to join them for date night? Enough said!
