Winter is finally taking a break and the weather has taken a turn for the better. Spring is one of the best seasons to enjoy time outside with a new friend. This is the ideal time to go on dates and really enjoy yourself.

picnic-918754__180Here are some ideas to get you thinking about what you will do for a spring date.

  • Okay, so it’s kind of cliché, but it’s still fun. Go on a picnic. This is a perfect idea if you are meeting someone from an online site. Go to a public park. You will feel safe AND you will have a certain amount of privacy for conversation.
  • bridge-525615_960_720There is always hiking. Don’t go to a secluded trail with someone you don’t know well, but there are a lot of local hikes which are well traveled. Maybe take the trail on a bike. If you don’t have a bike, there are lots of rental shops.
  • Miniature golf. It’s always good for a laugh.
  • Spring always features local festivals, wine tasting, free concerts in the park and other events. Check online for local events.
  • wine-tasting-90554_960_720Farmer’s markets are starting to open. They are great places to see unique items and get to know someone better.
  • Find a place which offers a great happy hour. It’s fun and casual.
  • Find a volunteer opportunity. This is a free date and working together teaches you a lot about another person.

Don’t let another spring and summer pass you buy without some fun dates.
