Norwell, MA, June 30, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Whether you are going on a first date or have been with your sweetheart for years, summer provides the perfect opportunity to forego the status quo, “ho-hum” date of dinner and a movie and try a new activity.
“Summer is a great time to relax, lighten up and plan a fun activity that you would both enjoy, but maybe haven’t done before. There are so many interesting things to do and events to attend during the summer that will enable you to get to know the other person a little better, even those couples who have been together for a while,” said Paul A. Falzone, CEO of the world’s largest bricks and mortar dating service The Right One and Together Dating, as well as online hybrid eLove.com.
He continued, “Seeing new people, going new places and doing different things stimulates conversation and helps to create and strengthen the bond between you.”
Falzone shares a few ideas for entertaining summer dates:
Summer theater. Love going to the movies? Then you may enjoy catching a live show, often held in the open air, at a summer theater. From classics such as Romeo and Juliet to comedy to murder mysteries, it’s more than likely appearing at a venue near you.
Go wild. Spend an afternoon strolling through the zoo, munching on snacks and taking silly pictures of each other in front of the animals.
Amusing parks. Water parks and carnivals aren’t just for kids. Bring “the kid” out in each other. Spend a day keeping cool in the water and on the water slides or hit a traditional carnival and enjoy the rides, the junk food, winning silly prizes and more.
Sports it up. Like golf? Tennis? Head to links that you have never played before and follow up that competitive round of golf with lunch at the country club. Is tennis your game? Make it interesting and play a match against each other on a surface that may be foreign to you both such as clay or grass. Not interested in playing a game? Visit the Tennis Hall of Fame or another sports museum.
America’s favorite game. Take in a baseball game. Can’t get tickets to see your favorite major league team? Get tickets to one of the many minor league games, don a foam finger and enjoy yourselves.
Go to camp. Yes, there are day camps for adults. Learn something new, go to Robotics camp where you can meld minds and together build your own working robot.
Culturally chic. Take in an art museum or an art opening. Many seaside galleries open their doors in the summer, showing both highly accomplished as well as up and coming artists’ work. Rub elbows with local artists and enjoy the wine and cheese reception.
Up the lazy river. Grab your sunscreen, put on a bathing suit and rent paddle boats or go kayaking on a lake, river or bay for the day. No need to take on the challenge of level 4 river rapids, unless you are both into it.
Candlepin is in. Bowling is perhaps the easiest and most accessible activity in which to partake. It’s so retro, it’s “in”. If you’re not on a team, the score really doesn’t matter. Why not wager an ice cream or a pizza for most strikes and spares.
“Get out and do something different this summer. Everyone is their best self when they are relaxed and simply having a good time,” noted Falzone.
