Whether It's Your First Date Or In The Midst Of A Long-Term Relationship, You'll Enjoy These 6 Date Ideas

Have you ever been on a date? Do you remember your first date? Was it horrible or worth remembering it? First dates can be daunting especially if you haven't met the person yet. Don't worry, just relax because with these ideas for your first date and some dos and don'ts for the senior singles to relive that experience (with someone else).

For those just starting a relationship...

It doesn't matter how you met someone. It could be through a sugar daddy website or through your common friends. Regardless, there's nothing like going on a first date. To some of you, it might seem some sort of cliché, but it should be memorable. And we have some unique ideas to help you out to make your first date a great one.

1. Take a cooking class

Having a dinner or lunch together might be a great way to have a great conversation. That way, you'll get to know each other and you can share some of your experiences. Make your first meal more exciting.

2. Attend a wine tasting

Once you've reached a specific age, drinking wine is something you can enjoy on your first date. And believe it or not, but there's nothing more relaxing than tasting some great wines. This date can definitely give you the feeling of being in Italy.

3. Visit a market or fair

You can surely go for this idea if you're planning a date in the warm season. Just visit your local market or country fair and enjoy the moments in a fun way. You can roam with your partner hand-in-hand and look for some fresh produces or buy something for your partner. And if visiting a fair is your plan, nothing can be more exciting than a Ferris wheel or playing games.

For those already dating...

One of the most common problems couples who have been together for years face is how to keep their relationship exciting. That's why we have come up with some great ideas so that you won't have to think much about your next date.

1. Explore your hometown

Check out some different tours in your local area, or the nearest city you can visit and enjoy. This plan will definitely help you fall in love and live the moment all over again.

2. Sample foreign cuisine

If either of you is a foodie, don't wait to take your partner to try something new. That could be a great experience.

3. Recreate your favorite dates

Nostalgia is something that brings back a number of memories you created with your partner. You can simply recreate that particular date.

Dos and don'ts for older singles...

People in their younger years often get very excited about their first date and start fantasizing about it. Some of them even start making plans for their marriage and honeymoon.

With growing age comes grounded thinking. See if you are OK with dating after a divorce or a loss. The new dating partner expects an unwanted shot and no comparisons — be it positive or negative — to your ex or late partner. And if you're 50+ and looking for a date, check out senior dating sites to reach your potential partner.

You should:

Dress appropriately but comfortably for the venue.

Choose a public venue for the date.

Keep calm, be relaxed and charming.

You shouldn't:

Be judgmental.

Talk a lot about your ex.

Brag about your credentials.

Have a sex on your first date.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
