Do you feel like your dates are kind of stuck in a rut? Movie nights, dinner dates, drinks, rinse, repeat. Sure, that can be fun — depending on who you're with — but sometimes, it's good to try something new and go on a unique, memorable date. But, wanting to spice things up and actually
coming up with fresh date ideas are two different things. This is where the stars come in handy, with some creative date ideas for your zodiac sign to help you break out of the same old basic dating box.
They key is to get you just a
little out of your comfort zone, while still playing to the things you're most likely to enjoy. Not only will you have fun, but it's a great way to see if the person you're dating really fits into your lifestyle. Are they likely to have fun doing the things you think are fun? Are they a great companion and down to try new things? You can learn a lot about both yourself and the person you're with by simply changing up the venues and activities you do on your dates. So, the next time you're going out with bae, skip the dinner reservation and try one of these ideas instead.
Aries (March 21 To April 19): Take A Day Trip
For an adventurous sign like Aries, any chance for a new experience is a win and a
great date idea. Pick a location that's a couple hours away and use the driving time to really get to know one another. Choose a unique or offbeat destination to really make things memorable. Websites like Atlas Obscura or Roadside America can point you toward all kinds of weird and wonderful places you didn't even know were nearby.
Taurus (April 20 To May 20): Indoor Camping
Nothing says romance to Taurus like getting cozy and being comfy, which is why indoor camping is the best of both worlds. Turn your (or their) home into your very own campsite, with blankets and pillows on the floor in front of a fireplace, and oven-made s'mores on a plate.
Gemini (May 21 To June 20): Attend A Music Festival
Gemini is at their best when they're being intellectually stimulated and surrounded by the arts, which is why this sign is the best music festival date.
Cancer (June 21 To July 22): Farmer's Market & Dinner At Home
Cancer loves the intimacy and comfort of a good, home-cooked meal. For a date night that really warms their heart, head to the farmer's market for dinner ingredients and whip up something together for a private, romantic meal.
Leo (July 23 To Aug. 22): Go For A Dip
Put Leo near any body of water, whether that's the beach, a lake, a pool, or even a hot tub, and they will
purr. It also never hurts to give them an excuse to flaunt what they've got in their favorite swimwear.
Virgo (Aug. 23 To Sept. 22): Check Out A Film Festival
Lean into Virgo's critical side by playing movie critic for the night at a film festival. Check out the movies and then discuss them over drinks at a nearby bar or cafe.
Libra (Sept. 23 To Oct. 22): Hit Up A Barcade
Libra just wants to have fun, and nothing beats a night of friendly, flirty competition at a barcade. Grab several fistfuls of quarters and have a blast.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 To Nov. 21): Go On A Ghost Tour
A spooky date appeals to the dark and mysterious side of Scorpio, so have some fun with a local ghost tour or hunt for two.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 To Dec. 21): Have An Electric Scooter Adventure
The way to a Sagittarius’ heart is through the great outdoors. Sure, going for a hike is a romantic way to spend the day together, but chances are, Sag's been there and done that. Instead, have an urban adventure by renting electric scooters and seeing where the day takes you. You never know what hidden gems you find.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 To Jan. 19): Visit The County Fair
For a more traditional sign like Capricorn, go back to the basics with a classic county fair date. 'Tis the season, so take advantage with a night full of rides, snacks, and a little romance on the Ferris wheel.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 To Feb. 18): Stand Up For What You Believe In
We are living through some seriously troubling times, and perhaps no sign is feeling it more than the humanitarian of the zodiac, Aquarius. Instead of trying to distract yourself from your concerns with a date, lean in and do some outreach together. Make signs and head to a protest, or volunteer to help sign up new voters.
Pisces (Feb. 19 To March 20): Get A Tarot Reading Together
Pisces' connection to Neptune makes this sign a uniquely intuitive one. Their psychic streak makes them a born romantic, and nothing brings those two things together like a tarot reading on a date. Who knows? You just might find out your future together is very bright.
While these dates may be catered to your particular zodiac sign, they all sound
so fun. Don't be afraid to venture out and give any of these ideas a try, and most importantly, don't be afraid to be yourself every step of the way.
