Date Place Ideas for Couples in the Getting-to-Know-You Stage

Before labeling what kind of relationship you have with your partner, you always want to get to know each other better first. So, how do you get to know each other better? By seeing each other once in a while? By eating lunch every weekend? By attending social events together? One of the best ways to get to know more about your partner is to have plenty of good and meaningful conversations. To help you initiate good conversations, you have to choose a great date place for you and your partner. Here are some date places to go where you can learn more about your partner:

Your hometown

There’s no place like home and no matter where your feet take you, you will always find your way back. So, go back. Visit your hometown with your partner. Going back to the place you first called home is a good way of sharing a bit more about yourself with your partner. You can show your partner the exact spot where you used to hide when you want to be left alone or the specific room where you danced to New Kids on the Block tunes when no one else was watching. Unless you are willing to be in a serious relationship, your family life is something you don’t discuss with your partner. You don’t initiate conversations on how long you cried after your pet beagle died or how wide you smiled after your first bike ride if you are not thinking about making memories like that with your partner. Rediscovering your childhood will help you reassess who you are now and will help your partner understand you a whole lot better.

Your high school

A big part of the person you are now has to do with who you were in high school. You are a smarter and stronger individual because of mean girls who ruined your dress, jocks who stole your sneakers, or teachers who trashed your essay. The things that happened in high school – whether good or bad – are still great stories to tell. Explaining how you suffered from major bout of diarrhea after eating the lunch lady’s tuna casserole will make your partner understand why you insist on cooking your own meals. Touring your high school with your partner will also remind you of some of the funniest or sweetest moments of your life. You can show your partner the laboratory where you broke a graduated cylinder or the gym where you won a gold medal. The good thing about spending dates in your high school is that you are not the only one who gets to do the storytelling. Your partner, inspired by your stories, may also cite some funny and memorable anecdotes about high school.

Visiting your hometown or your high school with your partner will make you reevaluate not only yourself but also your relationship. Did the discovery of your partner’s childhood pushed you farther away from each other? Or did it bring you closer to each other?
