Ever been on a Mega Date?
Wondering what in the world is a mega date? Probably best described as more fun than two people should be allowed to have in one day.
A mega date is an all day date taking in all the typical dating activities. It’s not for the weak! You need a great sense of humor and a great sense of adventure.
Why a mega date? Between working, going to school, taking care of the kids, having any type of social life can be difficult and time consuming. Finding time to date can be next to impossible.
You meet someone, maybe meet for lunch one day, go out on a typical Friday night date, take in a movie and dinner, make small talk. Yawn! Life is short! Kick it up a notch! A mega date is a great way to get to know someone new or add spice to a stale relationship.
It will take a bit of planning but doesn’t have to be expensive, there are plenty of activities you can do that don’t cost much. Here is how it works.
You plan out as many activities as you can fit into one day. The mega date day will start at 8am and go to midnight! You will need to figure out how long each activity will last and how far apart they are.
You need to allow for travel time between activities and some time for unexpected things that can pop up. It is best to find a number of quick activities that don’t take more than an hour or two.
For example, instead of playing 9 holes of golf you can just go to a driving range and hit a bucket of balls. Instead of an all day bike ride, ride for a half hour, have a picnic, then ride back. I think you get the idea.
Your day may start with something like a walk around a lake and then going out for breakfast or just a bagel and coffee. Your next few activities should include more physical things like golf, tennis, biking etc.
Try and schedule a picnic for lunch. The afternoon might include visiting a local museum, other interesting landmarks or your local “must see” tourist destination.
Try to include things you or your date have never done but had always wanted to. Take in a movie, a show or other current event.
Have dinner at some romantic restaurant or local hot spot (as long as the wait isn’t too long!, you don’t want to get off schedule.)
Try a carriage ride, horseback riding, miniature golf, anything on the water, rent a canoe or paddle boat, Go for a swim at a water park or beach. Visit an art gallery, Go to a casino, put $10 in a slot machine and see who is the bigger winner.
Go bowling. Go hiking in a park, Play Frisbee golf. Go indoor ice skating, Go rollerblading. Get a couples massage, Visit a vineyard. Visit a petting zoo. Plan both indoor and outdoor activities.
Have backups if there is a change in weather. Put your thinking cap on and search for fun things to do in your area. Cram in as much fun as you can.
At the end of the day, you and your date will be exhausted but it will be the most fun you have had in a long time.
You will both be thinking “I can’t believe we did all that!” Don’t forget to bring a camera to capture the day, then make a scrapbook of the mega date day.
