First dates can be a lot of fun. Of course, how much fun they are will usually depend on a few things. They’ll depend on how you feel, how the other person feels, but also, on how you both act. Having said that, sometimes the location and atmosphere will play a big role in how you both feel, and it can either improve your fun or take away from it. Going to the beach is a great first date in the morning, in the evening, or even to end a beautiful first date that went well. However, in the evening, there’s always more opportunity for romance, so I’d highly recommend going then. In this article, I wanted to share five reasons why going to the beach for a first date is a great idea.
1. Perfect for getting to know someone.
When you genuinely want to get to know someone, you know that it’s about the person and not the place. And when it comes to the beach, you can walk side by side, sit on the sand and talk, and get to know each other. That’s what it’s all about. Spending time with someone and asking questions, listening, and seeing how well you communicate together and just how much attraction there is. It will give you the chance to truly get to know the person, and without any unwanted distractions. And any distractions that may come, will likely be pleasant, peaceful, and experienced together beside the water.
2. It’s peaceful and relaxing.
The beach is one of the best places to relax, let go, and be your authentic self. Therefore, there’s no pressure. It will give any possible chemistry a boost and a chance to develop. If you like one another, you might even make eye contact and hold hands. You can breathe in the fresh air and perhaps even watch the sunset as the waves push water over your feet. There’s something so beautiful about nature and the beach that when two people share a moment at such a destination and they like each other, it’s never forgotten.
3. It doesn’t cost money.
As cheesy as it may sound, it’s free. Again, it’s about the company, not the meal, the drinks, the happening location, or even the people around you. Which by the way, is leading us up to number 4.
4. It’s a great place to focus more on the person and not the place.
Coming from someone who actually enjoys people watching, I can honestly tell you that one of the things I always recommend during early dating is to focus on the person beside you. You should have pure intentions and truly desire to know the person you’re out with and give them your attention. When you date someone, you’re giving one another your time and as we all know, our time is valuable. When we choose to be with someone on a day or an evening perhaps, we need to be in that very moment, embrace it, and embrace what’s going on and what’s being said.
5. The beach has many opportunities to provide romance.
The beach in itself is a romantic place. At least that’s how I’ve always perceived it. However, you can make it even more romantic by being thoughtful and putting a little effort into it. You can bring a jacket for your girl, you can pack some snacks, make a picnic, lunch, or even a dinner if you think you’ll get hungry. Depending on the beach, you can bring drinks and just chill on the sand by the water, cozy up beside each other and talk until the stars come out.
