Have you ever wondered what a date in the Sugar World is like? Truth be told, the dates themselves aren’t much different from what you would encounter in the typical dating scene. However, the benefits of an Arrangement go far beyond what vanilla dating has to offer.
Here are a few popular first date ideas if you’re stuck on what to do:
Whether it’s grabbing a delicious cup of coffee or a swanky cosmopolitan, drinks are a pretty safe starting point for first-timers. It offers the opportunity to meet in person for a short period without the pressure and commitment of sharing a meal together. Once you know there’s chemistry, and you’re sure you want to see that person again, then make plans for something more intimate like dinner.
They say the way to a person’s heart is through their stomach. Many great first dates begin with dinner at a slightly upscale, yet non-intimidating restaurant. The key to making dinner dates a success is picking the right venue with excellent menu options. Be proactive and book a reservation so your table is guaranteed. You can even go the extra mile and request a table with a spectacular view and use it as an icebreaker to get the conversation going.
Most of the time, dinner also includes dessert. Dessert is the ultimate way to see if your date is into you. If he/she accepts dessert, it’s a definite yes!
For those who are more adventurous, dates that include an adrenaline rush are usually more exciting and favored. Going skydiving or taking a helicopter ride over the bright city lights can be an excellent experience to share and will also create lasting memories of one another. There’s nothing easier than making the mutual activity the focal point of the date if you’re more of a doer than a talker. Even something simple as ice skating or hiking can be quite romantic and makes for a great opportunity to get up-close and personal with your date.
Who doesn’t love a little art and culture? Having your date at a museum or an art gallery can be quite fun as well. Explore each other’s tastes in high brow or low brow art and have plenty to talk about. Bonus: you’re almost always guaranteed to be supplied with unlimited wine there.
There are occasions where special events such as operas, military balls, or fundraising galas can become ideal dates. These are wonderful opportunities to get to know your date in a social setting. These events are often paired with delicious hors-d’oeuvres, wine, and/or dinner.
Ultimately, no matter which type of date you decide to partake in, it’s the company you keep that makes or breaks the experience. Chemistry is chemistry is chemistry, and it cannot be forced. Relax, be yourself, and most of all, have fun! Good luck!
