Simple Ways to Keep Dating Fun
If you have been dating for a while, and it has started to go stale, or if you are dating for a good time rather than to find a serious relationship, there are lots of things you can do to avoid the dating drag and keep things as fun as possible. Here are a few of them:
Go old school
If modern dating isn’t giving you much enjoyment, then why not go old school by trying out, for example, a dating chat line where you can actually get to know people by exclusively talking to them over the phone for a while, or by going out dancing like your grandparents used to where you can have lots of wholesome fun without the pressure. Dating used to be so much simpler, so by revisiting some of the old ways, you can make it a lot more fun for yourself too.
Ditch the expectations
Stop having expectations about what your dates will go like or what kind of personality the guy will have, and you know what? You’ll probably have a lot more fun. When you aren’t expecting something to go a certain way, it can unfold in new and exciting ways that you may not have anticipated, but which may be even more amazing than you could have imagined, and you won’t be disappointed by unrealistic expectations either!
Make the goal fun
Instead of making the goal of a date to meet someone amazing who is perfect for you in every way, simply make it your goal to have fun whatever that means, and then even if the guy is not your perfect match, you can still have fun watching a goofy movie or playing miniature golf, or whatever it is that floats your boat, and it won’t be a wasted evening.
Instead of taking pictures of your food or posting every detail of your date on social media, switch off and really focus on the experience that is unfolding in front of you. It will feel much more intimate and exciting if you do.
See every date as a great story
If you see every date as a potentially great story you can pass on to your friends, you will naturally work harder at making it a better date. Whether that means trying really hard to flirt effectively, learning how to laugh when you slip right in front of the guy you are trying to impress, or heading to a unique venue like a hot air balloon above the city, is up to you, but make an effort to make it story-worthy and it probably will be even if you don’t ultimately end up together.
Be more choosy
Being careful to choose potential dates who are more likely to be fun and have a similar personality to you will make it much easier for you to have fun on each and every date you go on. It’s that simple.
Dating should be fun, and it can be fun when you let go of expectations and make a real effort to have a good time, so what are you waiting for?
