When you’re dating the love of your life, it’s fun to simply sit on the couch and watch television. However, you don’t want your comfortable relationship to make you lazy. While most of your days should be spent relaxing together, you should still go on exciting dates every once in a while. You need to get those bodies moving, and not just in the bedroom.
Whether you have six pack abs or get winded walking up a short flight of stairs, there are adventurous dates that you’d enjoy going on. Here are some of the best ideas you should try out:
1. Horseback Riding
Do you love animals as much as you love adventure? Then find a place to go horseback riding. It’ll be difficult to control the animal at first, but once you get the hang of it, you can ride off into the sunset. What’s more romantic than that? If you really enjoy yourself, then you and your boyfriend can consider buying a horse together in the future after you’re happily married.
2. Cave Exploration
You might have to drive for a while to find a cave, but once you do, you’ll have a blast exploring it. You can pay for a tour guide to show you around it, so there’s no way that you’ll get lost or end up hurt. Plus, the guide will be able to tell you all kinds of interesting facts about the rocks all around you. It’s fun, but it’s also a learning experience.
If you’re ready for an amazing adrenaline rush, schedule a day to go skydiving together. As long as you go to a location that is reputable, you’ll be completely safe. Don’t worry if you’re scared of heights, because this is a great way to finally face your fears. Your partner will be right there with you, so there’s no reason to freak out. Once it’s all done, you can celebrate with a trip to get ice cream.
4. Hot Air Balloon Rides
It’s time to see the world from an entirely new point of view! Take a hot air balloon ride or a helicopter ride. Once you get up in the sky, you’ll see that it’s more relaxing than terrifying. I mean, how could you focus on being scared when you’re looking down at such beautiful scenery. It’ll make you appreciate the world in a way that you never have before.
5. Rock Climbing
If you’re both physically fit, go rock climbing. If you get out of breath easily, then you can still have a simulated adventure by going to a building with a rock wall. You’ll have a harness on and won’t be climbing all that far, so you have nothing to worry about. Even if you slip and fall, it’s not a big deal.
If you love going to the racetrack and speeding down the highway, you’ll have a blast four-wheeling. You might get a little muddy, but that’s part of the fun. Once your day is over, you and your partner can find a place to hose each other off and have some more fun in the water.
If you love nature, then you should surround yourself with it. Go camping, or if you’re too nervous to sleep outside all night, just go for a hike. You’ll still see a lot of beautiful scenery, but you won’t have bugs climbing on you while you try to sleep. Pack some lunch and you can even have a romantic picnic. There’s nothing sweeter!
8. Jet Skiing
Don’t forget about the water! If you love the ocean, then see if you can sign up for scuba diving lessons. You’ll get to see tons of beautiful creatures that you’ve only seen in pictures. If you’re not the greatest swimmer, then you can always try jet skiing or para sailing. You won’t have to do much, so there’s nothing to be scared of.
9. Shooting Range
If you’ve ever wished you were the star of an action movie, you’ll have fun at the shooting range. You’ll be aiming at an inanimate object, so no animals will be harmed. It’s a great way to let off steam. Plus, learning how to shoot could come in handy one day if you’re ever placed in danger. It can’t hurt to be prepared.
10. Amusement Parks
Amusement parks aren’t the most adventurous, but they’re a great place to go if you’re not in the mood to do anything too intense. There are plenty of roller-coaster and other rides that will make your adrenaline start pumping, so the trip certainly won’t be a waste.
It’s fun to step outside of your comfort zone every once in a while. Instead of always going out for dinner and a movie, try out one of these adventurous date ideas. You’ll come home with plenty of stories to tell.
