Besides being fun and nostalgic, skating will allow you to talk on the go. When you get tired or if conversation wavers, head home. You can improve your 'hood and get to know each other. Bonus points if you take a break at a coffeehouse for lattes and conversation. Okay, maybe you won't be able to make a meal of it, but you can make it a date.
Ice-skate, roller-skate, Roller-blade—whatever gets you moving and is weather-appropriate. Step out your door and walk—with no specific destination—until you decide to turn. If you don't mind getting down and dirty on the first date, grab plastic bags, rubber gloves, and old shoes, and hit the streets. Rent city bikes or take your own bikes around the city.
The good news is that you can always bring date nights back into your routine.
They don't have to just be for special occasions, either; in fact, you should definitely have date nights that are "just 'cuz." The key here is to establish a regular day for your date night -- whether it's on a weekly or monthly basis -- and stick to it.
