While dinner dates and movie nights are superb suggestions for singles synching up, why not try something you may not have done since you were sixteen or so?
Roller skating, not to be confused with roller blading, makes you feel more youthful and you'll be burning calories while you conversate.
If you're like most adults and you haven't skated since your younger years, you'll be happy to learn that roller skating rinks do host "adult nights" so you don't have to worry about tiny tots tearing between you two. You may even get lucky and get a "couple skate" session to bring you even closer together!
There shouldn't be any awkward silences because there are always sweet jams playing and when you need to take a break, you can cozy up in the concession area and share a soda and a soft pretzel.
The best part of this great date idea is that it's cheap! And if you enjoy it so much that you want to make it a regular activity, invest in your own skates so you can save even more by not having to rent them. Then you can go skating on more scenic routes like to the beach or around the park which may be a tad more romantic than a smelly old roller rink.
Get out there and skate! It's great!
