Picture your first date. And I don’t mean imagine what your first date will be like with someone, I mean literally picture the date. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but with all the memories you will have attached to these ones, they’ll be worth a lot more than that!
A great way to add an element of fun to your first date is by capturing the whole thing! In an age where almost everything is documented digitally and shared on Facebook, it’s a fun idea to do that off the bat! Why wait until your 8th or 9th date to start taking pictures? Doing it right off the bat is a fun and memorable way to kick off your relationship. So how do you make photography into a memorable date?
Break out the dictionary
Start off your date at a low key place like a coffee house and bring along a dictionary. You each have to pick five pages and five words, and then spend the rest of your date on a scavenger-like adventure. And best of all, if any of your words relate to sex, you get a jump start on the naughty conversation!
Buy an instant camera
On dates, people usually want to be reminded of a simpler time. Girls want guys to open the doors for them, guys want to pick up the bill, and both parties want the date to be traditional. Instant cameras like Polaroids have a tendency of reminding you of that same time. They’re fun and easy to use, so whether it’s a candid picture or one of scenery, they’ll freeze the memory in a unique and traditional way
Set a development date
Buy a disposable camera and at the start of the date, write a month and day that’s still a few weeks away on the camera. Instead of developing the camera when you’re done the date, the two of you have to go out together on the chosen date to develop it together. Not only is it an excuse to continue hanging out until then, but when you give enough time between the first date and the development of the pictures, you’re likely to forget the small details, and seeing the pictures will remind you of those times and the feelings you had during your first date.
Singles dating tend to always fall back on the same first date ideas. Breaking out of the ordinary date box can make the difference between a mundane date and an exciting one, so make it worth your time and say cheese!
