Spring has arrived. And for most of us, this time of year could not have come fast enough after the seemingly never-ending winter and brutal cold that many of us city dwellers have faced for months on end. For those of you in warmer climates, I envy you!
But whether you have just survived a cold winter, or are heading into warmer weather as we speak, perhaps the best aspect of Spring for singles is the plethora of dating ideas that emerge this time of year. Gone are the first dates where singles can spend no more than five minutes outdoors without having to check for frost bite or bundle up in six layers. Its time to get outside, breath in that fresh air, and enjoy all that Spring has to offer. In this article we are going to take a look at 5 Spring dating ideas for the Urban Dater.
1. Catch a baseball game.
One of the best parts of baseball season is that opening day represents more than just the start of baseball. It is symbolic for the beginning of Spring. You don't have to be a baseball fan to enjoy this date. A day at the ball park will fall nothing short of a date that taps into every aspect of fun you could possibly want.
Your tickets will all but assure you great weather (pending the rain doesn't come!), excitement, awesome food, a wide variety of drinks to choose from, and various other fun amenities depending on the ball park. Stadiums such as Citi Field even have batting cages and video games! If you want to have a fun date that takes the pressure off you to be the sole source of entertainment, this is definitely a solid option.
2. Plan a day at the nearest park.
Dating does not necessarily have to correlate to spending large amounts of money. Sometimes dates that lean towards the free side are twice as memorable and twice as fun. Every urban area has at least one great park. So give it a visit. Pack a bag and fill it with various items you can use to have fun. Items that work well on your checklist could include a frisbee, a blanket, a picnic basket, and fun snacks. Plan this right and you will definitely walk away with a date that is extremely memorable.
3. Hit up those local festivals
The best part about living in an Urban area, is that Spring in Urban neighborhoods often marks the arrival of various outdoors festivals that are all types of amazing fun. Whether you are attending a food festival and indulging in some unique food creations, catching an assortment of live bands, or attending an art festival, there is usually something for everyone. Check publications such as timeout.com and stay up to date with various activities that will be occurring.
