One of the fun aspects of being a teenager is when your parents finally allow you to go on dates and explore romantic relationships. Sure, you’ve gone to birthday parties and played those cute games, like Spin the Bottle and Seven Minutes in Heaven, with your friends and crushes. But you’re past that phase now. Now, you can go out on dates and connect with your crush on a more personal level. If you’re worried about where you should go on your date, here are a few suggestions:
Regardless of whether you’re nine or 19, you have to admit that amusement parks just have that certain charm that spells out f-u-n. Going to amusement parks also lessens the “awkward” moments between you and your date. You can avoid having those gut-wrenching moments of dead air by talking about which rides you both want to go on, and you can even dare each other to go on the scariest ride there is.
For the boys, you can impress your date by scoring that huge teddy bear for her at the target shooting booth. It may seem like such a simple thing, but trust us, that can very well score you another date with her. Another upside to amusement park dates is that they’re not expensive, which means you can have loads of fun on your date without spending beyond your allowance.
Some teenagers are not allowed by their parents to spend the entire day on a date. Sometimes they’re only given a few hours to go and hang out with their date. If this is the case, don’t waste time whining and complaining about how unfair your parents are. Instead, use the limited time you’re given to go to a local diner and eat something yummy while talking and getting to know your date better.
This is your chance to ask your date about the type of music he or she listens to, favorite movies, which class you enjoy the most…the list is endless! Best of all, you can top the date off by snuggling up to each other and sharing a milkshake for dessert.
Another inexpensive date place option you have is your local park. Depending on whether your date is the sporty and active or long-walks-loving type, you can go biking, kite flying, roller blading, or strolling around the park. Going to a place where there are many people around will make your parents worry less, and it can also give you a chance to explore your date’s favorite neighborhood sights when you walk each other home.
