Dating for horse lovers isn’t always easy, and figuring out what to do on a first date can be tricky. Here are a few ideas to help you and your date have a great time together.
Dinner and a Film
Ask anyone what they think of when they hear the word “date” and the answer will almost inevitably be “dinner and a film.” While it can be a great, traditional first date, there is one pitfall if you aren’t careful. From the time that you sit down with your date at dinner to the time that the movie ends, you’ve spent at least three hours together! Although three hours with someone you really like seems like no time at all, there is always the possibility that you could meet someone for the first time and realize within several minutes that you want absolutely nothing to do with him or her. Of course, if you already know your date and you are certain that you will relish every minute of together, then dinner and a movie can be a wonderful way of getting to know that person better.
Coffee For Two
One of the great aspects of a coffee date lies in its flexibility. If the date does not begin well, you can often excuse yourself after twenty minutes with no hard feelings. On the other hand, if you really hit it off with your date, then you can easily spend many hours together talking and nursing your coffees into the little hours of the morning, or at least until the coffee shop closes. Of course, a date at a coffee shop is not a traditional date, and could be misinterpreted by your partner as indicating that your intentions are less than serious. So by the end of the date, try to be sure that both you and your date are on relatively the same page as to your intentions.
This sounds vague, but that’s because this date can be just about anything! If you have the luxury of knowing that both you and your date share a mutual interest, why not spend the date doing it together? Whether it’s rock climbing, playing cards, or simply taking a walk in the countryside, doing an activity together can break the ice by providing a conversational topic, and be a whole lot of fun as well. Of course, you could just go riding together but use your imagination and think of something else too. If it’s the start of a beautiful relationship between two horse lovers then there will be ample opportunity for rides together.
