First dates can be a bit daunting. Going for dinner, to the cinema or for a coffee are all possible scenarios, but let’s face it – they’re quite overdone. So SWAG’s come up with a few alternative activities for you to make a great first impression.

 

Obviously try to find out your partner’s likes and dislikes before your date. If you plan to watch The Exorcist but she’s terrified of scary movies, that probably won’t work out too well, now, would it?

  PLAY THE TOURIST

PLAY THE TOURIST malta,  Explore this beautiful little island, especially if the weather is good. Take along a camera and get some good shots of places you've both heard of countless times but haven't actually visited before - open air venues and special buildings. And snapping some photos of her gives you the perfect excuse to shower her with compliments.

  AN AMUSEMENT PARK

AN AMUSEMENT PARK malta,  We realise this might be a bit challenging, but there are occasions where a pop-up amusement park happens, like the one at Manoel Island. Most people would enjoy trying out all the rides and games, and you can recreate a scene from a variety of movies by winning a stuffed teddy bear for your date. D’aw.

  THE THEATRE OR A CONCERT

THE THEATRE OR A CONCERT malta,  If you’re really nervous about your date and worry you won’t have anything to talk about, watching a play or going to a concert are great options. Keep a look out for one-off activities like comedy shows too. They're classier than the cinema, and will make you look more interesting - although the cinema is also an option... but try and find an arty film at the St James' Cavalier cinema. You’ll both be focused (and hopefully entertained) on the performance and afterwards you can discuss what you thought of the whole thing.

  A ROMANTIC OUTDOOR SPOT

A ROMANTIC OUTDOOR SPOT malta,  You don’t have to plan a fancy-shmancy outing for it to be special. Pick a local beauty spot, near some cliffs or a scenic bay, pack a chilled bottle of wine and take along some some nibbles and a rug to sit on. It’s simple, but your date will surely appreciate the nice gesture and the surroundings. If you're still there when it gets dark, stargazing is an option.

  COOKING TOGETHER

COOKING TOGETHER malta,  Many women appreciate good, homemade food. Showing off your skills in the kitchen can earn you some serious brownie points. Not only will it be fun and playful, but if the food actually turns out well, who knows, dessert may go beyond the dinner table...

  VOLUNTEERING

VOLUNTEERING malta,  Why not do some good on your date and make your time together meaningful? There are plenty of places that need assistance. For example, animal shelters are always in need of volunteers, and if you’re both animal lovers it could be quite a nice experience. You might smell of wet dog afterwards, but at least you’ll be smelly together.

  ZIP LINING

ZIP LINING malta,  If the two of you are adventurous, why not give zip lining a try? For those who aren’t familiar with the activity, it involves being strapped into a harness and flying across a gorge or between cliffs using a rope. The adrenaline (and most probably, fear) running through your veins could prove to be quite a bonding experience. Check out this  SWAG page  for more details...

  BOWLING

BOWLING malta,  You might think bowling is for other people, or good for a night out with your mates, but it can be a lot fun. If you’re both competitive, a simple round of bowling could turn into something much more serious. If you were a gentleman, you’d fake a few gutter balls and let her win - if she needs the help that is.

  A SCENIC FLIGHT

A SCENIC FLIGHT malta,  Sweep her off her feet literally but taking her on a microlight or private plane flight over Malta. If you can afford it, we bet she’d remember it for the rest of her life. Obviously, be careful: she might be petrified of flying, but if you get the feeling she’d be up for it, do it.

  JET SKIING

JET SKIING malta,  You’d be surprised how many people haven’t been on a jet ski given that we live on an island. It’s also a good excuse to see your date wearing less clothing than if you opted for a more traditional date. It’s a win-win situation.
