Senior Dating: 6 First Date Ideas

Whatever your age, the best way to enjoy a first date is to keep an open mind, focus on the things you have in common, and make your primary goal to simply have fun. Here are a few first date suggestions to get you started.

Fun First Dates for Single Seniors (or married couples renewing the spark)


1. Dance the Night Away. Check your local recreation centres for dance classes or look for dance clubs that welcome newcomers. Whether you are an accomplished dancer, or a novice with a desire to learn, being with a group of people engaged in the grand sport of dancing will open doors to new relationship opportunities. Most dance classes invite singles to join and will match you up with a partner, or possibly several partners. Get close, have fun and check to see if there’s any chemistry.


2. Picnic in the Great Outdoors. Find a beautiful spot to spread a blanket and share a tasty basket of goodies. Shop the local deli together for some exotic items, or bring a potluck of homemade items. Find a beautiful spot to spread a blanket and enjoy your bounty. It will taste that much better in the fresh air and in the company of someone you want to get to know better.


3. The Dog Park. If you’re both partial to pooches, take an hour and meet at the local dog park. Both of you and your furry friends can say hello and you can get to know one another in a relaxed, familiar environment.


4. Get Artsy. Nourish your artistic side by expanding your creativity. Research current exhibits at local art galleries, or the museum. If you both have an artistic bent, take an art class together and perhaps try something new to both of you… stained glass, woodworking, etc. If you’re not the hands-on type, you can still nurture your artistic side by going on a local art tour. These usually take you to a number of locations, involve a variety of art forms and give you and your date something to chat about.

5. Enjoy the Classics. Classic car shows can bring back many memories to share with your date. Automobiles are a big part of our history – what better way to find out more about each other by reminiscing about the cars that were part of your past?


6. It’s All In Good Taste.    Whether you’re a wine connoisseur or have trouble telling Cabernet from Merlot, visiting a local winery, joining a tour that takes in a sampling of several vineyards, or attending a wine tasting together is a great way to get to know each other while learning something new and sampling one of life’s pleasures.
