To be honest, I never really gave casual dating a thought as I was quite young when I met Kieran and we were just dating each other so would that be classed as dating?? I'm not sure, haha, either way, we've been on a lot of dates and I thought I'd share some date ideas with you all as well as introduce some great ways to meet new people.

1. Go to the cinema

My and Kieran's first date was a trip to the cinema - it was a mutual agreement. This way we could get to know each other before and after the movie as well as enjoy our own company without having to talk to test whether it was awkward or not. 5 years on and I guess it wasn't awkward at all haha! 😂

2. Go to a cafe for lunch or tea/coffee

You can do this by yourself as it's a great way to meet new people and someone might approach you if they see you sitting by yourself enjoying your own company. This is also a fantastic way to get to know the person you're dating as you'll get to find out how they take their tea/coffee and their table manners.

3. Have a picnic

I feel like this is such a cute and romantic date idea when you've been seeing each other for a while and want to have some alone time and enjoy good food. I've been on a few picnics with Kieran and we've always had a great time, it's a perfect way to unwind especially in the Summer.

4. Go to a bar/club

If you're a party animal and love going out and dancing, then I suggest going on a night out with the person you're dating (this way you can see how they act when intoxicated if they drink) or go clubbing with your friends and see if you get lucky and pull on the night! I think like this is a fun and great way to meet new people as most people are very lovely - I wish I took the numbers of all the lovely girls I had met in the ladies toilets!! On the contrary, if you're not a relationship or dating sort of person and are after a casual no-strings-attached relationship (and are 18+ of course) then try out a dating apps like Tinder or Grindr, or sites for adult dating. I actually met Kieran online and we will have been together for five years this year - so we're a living proof that putting yourself out there really works!

5. Go bowling

This is definitely one of Kieran's favourite things to do haha! We don't go that often but when we do go we always have a good time. This is a great way to meet new people or get close to your newly acquired friends. I feel like going bowling is a fantastic way to meet your other half's friends.

What's your favourite date idea? Have you ever made a dating profile?

Lots of love,
Maya xo
