Summer is upon us again. Are you going to get out and about again next summer and even want to start dating? We can only encourage that after the austere summers of recent years. Go for it! Just getting a little used to it all? Do you have a date this summer and don’t know what to wear or what to do? We’ve listed some great tips for you.
Let’s start at the beginning. After the pandemic, it’s only natural that you’re at a loss for words at first. It may have been a long time ago, a real summer date. We love sporty dates in the summer. Nice and outside, moving and getting everything out. Sweaty hands, a fast heartbeat and shortness of breath are associated with physical effects of lust according to the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology study. Of course, you don’t want to host a date where sweat drips down every inch of your body. That’s why we’ve come up with 3 low-impact sporty dates for this summer. In addition to these tips, you’ll also get a what to wear guide when it comes to sporty dates.
What to wear?
It’s easy, wear something comfortable. On sporty dates, being comfortable is much more important than being fashionable. As a man, it’s easiest to wear black shorts and a matching t-shirt. Avoid wearing gray, as you can easily see sweat stains. In doing so, work in so-called layers. Depending on the weather, you can always wear men’s training pants over your shorts. If it gets too hot, you can take off those long pants. But what if you have plans after your sporty date? Then we recommend you dress casual but basic. As long as your outfit exudes quality, you’ll be fine. Wearing merino wool clothing like a merino wol shirt is a great post-date option because it looks and feels great. Think about all the details, like merino wol sokken. With these, you will complete the look.
Tip 1: Go for a walk
Going for a walk may sound very cliché, but what’s not to like? You can easily talk while walking side by side and you don’t have to look each other in the eye the whole time. Perfect if you’re not one of those romantic “looking each other in the eye” dates. But to make it sporty, turn it into a hike. Because a hike date is a very exciting experience, yet memorable. Think of the beautiful romantic backdrops and landscapes. Want to take it a step further? Bring a picnic basket. We’re sure your date will love it.
Tip #2: Go golfing
Golfing is something people rarely do on their first date. But it’s such a fun experience when the weather is nice. Maybe you or your date already have some golfing experience. In that case, one of you can act as a teacher. Drive around in the golf cart and enjoy the sunshine. We’re sure your date will never forget golfing as a first date.
Tip 3: Go bowling
Bowling, a great activity for when it unexpectedly does pour with rain in the summer. Even though bowling doesn’t really fall under the category of ‘sporty’. Still, with this date you can show your competitive side, despite the disappointing weather . It is also interesting to see if your date is really competitive or if your date laughs at you when you repeatedly throw the bowling ball next to it.
Hopefully these tips will ensure your ideal date in the upcoming summer of love. Enjoy it!
