Date Ideas For The Summer

Hey Cats,

Summer is here and it is a great time to be dating the sunshine on our side means we can get outdoors and really enjoy the days and what better way to do it than with someone you like. Fear not if your single match me happy has you covered. Meeting people through free dating sites is the norm now and so many people meet this way. If you already have a partner then let me know what great dates you like to go on in the summer in the comments below.

Explore Nature

When the sun is shining everywhere is so much happier and more inviting and there are great places you can go. I am lucky enough to live in the Peak district so we can have busy sunny walks or lazy days by the river when the sun is out. Getting out and exploring nature is a lovely day out you can pack a picnic and go for an adventure in a woods or walk round a beautiful lake any chance to hold hands and really enjoy each others company. If you live in the city and the parks are busy then a national trust membership is a great way to take in some stunning sites and historical houses they can get busy but with so much to explore you can find some quiet spots and everyone visiting is much more respectful. A day out in nature together can be really calming and is great for your creativity too.

Get To The Beach

Beaches in the UK can be great places to visit we have the sandy beaches or Cornwall or the pebble beaches of Brighton with so many to choose from with so many different attractions. We actually got engaged in Blackpool which may not be the most beautiful of beaches but we had a ton of fun playing on arcades, going through haunted houses and drinking cocktails by the seafront. With each beachfront offering different things maybe suggest a beach tour with your other half you could visit a new beach every week and find your favourite. I love Cornwall and exploring little shops and then settling down to eat an ice cream on the sand watching the waves. Shops on the sea front are always quirky and fun so you can get a lovely token of your day out or challenge each other in the arcades.

Outdoor Music

The great thing about summer is that there is always music playing somewhere of course you can embrace this fully and visit one of the any festivals as it seems like there is a new one to visit almost every year. However there are lots of open air music events that you can visit for the day or pubs who have all day music events so you can take in the sunshine and discover some new bands. This is a great way to support local bands have a dance and a little tipple of your choice. Local to me lots of pubs work together and have a day of music where they collaborate to have a band on in each pub so you almost have a mini pub crawl at the same time. These kinds of things can get a bit messy but you don't have to drink you can just sit back and enjoy the music or have some lovely food along the way. 

Open Air Cinema

Local parks, rooftops and beaches are having pop events where you can watch new and classic films out in the open. These actually go on all year around but in the summer when the weather is on our side is the best time to take these in on a warm summer evening with a blanket and some snacks you can snuggle up and take in a film. I adore open air cinemas and wish we had drive ins like the states do cinemas can be a bit stuffy and there is something so romantic about watching an amazing film under the stars. You can bring your own snacks, chairs or sometimes even cars. These kind of nights out have something for everyone from horror marathons to sing a long musicals so keep an eye out for your local open air cinema events and get your popcorn at the ready.
