The 5 Options For a Perfect Philadelphia Dateby Amanda Green on January 10, 2012
The City of Brotherly Love knows how to date. Makes sense, right?
HowAboutWe daters in Philly are all about switching things up — expanding their palates, learning new things, and leaving the city for a change of scenery.
We ran their proposed dates through a word cloud generator to figure out what we can learn from them.
1) Eat something exotic.
2) Hit the road.
Even cruising within city limits can be relaxing. It’s strangely intimate to ride in a car with someone you’re just getting to know. Watch the scenery and listen to music or talk without having to look right at each other. Remember all the freedom a car represented when you were first starting to date? It still exists.
3) Play games (the good kind).
Even better — find a way to play on a team with your date, like in Taboo or a doubles tennis match. See where you complement each other and where you struggle for power. Or you know, just try not to lose too badly and give each other high-fives.
4) Learn something together.
Sometimes it’s best to explore an entirely novel activity, but having a date who’s slightly more educated on a topic than you has its own benefits. Consult the “expert” for help with whatever you’re learning.
5) Take it outdoors.
Going for a hike or visiting a state park offers alternatives to the same old scene. It also requires you to think about things you might normally not. What should you pack for a picnic, since there’s no Chipotle for miles? What would you do if your date were injured on the trail, or a bear suddenly wandered into sight? Would you two survive longer in the wilderness? All great things to ponder on the trails. Just don’t get all Deliverance on us.
You’ve got the how, now check out where to date in Philadelphia.
