When it comes to finding your perfect mate, people that enjoy healthy living and fitness are usually best suited to someone else into those. You don’t both have to be runners or weight lifters, but it helps to have some interest. Not only does it give you a new instant workout buddy, but if things progress you know your kitchen will be full of healthy foods if you both eat smart and clean.
So, if you find yourself about to go on a date with someone else that enjoys a healthy lifestyle, what should you do for your first date? And, what if it’s someone that only has a remote interest in fitness. How can you introduce them to a healthier lifestyle on your first date without scaring them away? Well, here are some ideas.
Do Something Fun
There are plenty of fun and casual things that you can do on a date whether you’re sports minded or not, which fit into the category of both fun and fitness. Anyone can enjoy a good game of bowling. If you want an outdoor activity that is fun and sporty, consider playing some putt-putt golf. It’s less boring than real golf!
There are other fun and physical things that make fun first dates, like skating or even playing a game of tennis or basketball. It really just depends on how physical you want to get on the first date.
There are other ways to get physical, that don’t include competition. Consider a hiking date for your first date. It can be fun to explore and area together, and gives you plenty of time to talk and get to know one another.
If you don’t have a good place with hiking terrain near you, consider a walk in general, or maybe go bike riding. Exploring nature can make for a great first date for both fitness lovers and outdoor enthusiasts.
Have A Healthy Meal
If you are going out to eat on your first date, and one or both of you is into clean and healthy eating, consider finding a suitable place to eat for both of you. That could mean going to someplace that caters to vegan meals, or at least vegetarian. Or maybe you want to go to a new paleo restaurant.
You could also consider making a healthy meal for them at home. If you don’t want your first date to be anywhere near your home, make it a picnic.
Meet For A Smoothie
If you want a more casual first date, instead of a whole meal, instead of meeting for coffee, get together for a healthy smoothie. You’ll be getting healthy together, and have plenty of time to talk about how you stay fit, and what you’re looking for in a relationship.
