Seven active dating ideas | ParticipACTION

Seven active dating ideas | ParticipACTION | Health & Fitness Teens | Scoop.it
To put it bluntly, coffee dates are boring and they need to be stopped. Think about it, you meet up with someone you barely know, and then drink something (usually at night) that’s known to increase nerves, jitters and anxiety. If things are going well you’re not going to stay for a second beverage, and if things are not going so-well, you go home as a nervous, sweaty mess without a hope of going to sleep any time soon.
Larisa Ens's insight:
Good starting point to think outside of the traditional dating ruts. Other active ideas to get you out and about that are cheap or free within your community: tobogganing, skating, bowling, tennis, bike riding, frisbee or beach volleyball in the park. Being out and active gets your blood flowing, lightens the mood and laughter comes naturally.
