Dating Ideas In The Run Up To Christmas

The most wonderful time of the year is also a perfect time to look for and find love. Most people like to spend Christmas with a special someone, and with the rise of online dating sites, including the current popularity of over 50s dating, it seems true that there really is somebody for everybody, and that now might just be the time you will find your soulmate, or at least some friendship and companionship. Dating websites have opened up the world of love to so many people, even in more rural, remote or island communities, currently dating sites in Guernsey are proving very popular as just one example.

If you are looking for a Guernsey dating site, there are lots out there, but once you have found some potential dates, what now? Where would be the ideal place for easy going, enjoyable dates, particularly if you want to take things a little slower? I have put together some festive ideas that will make the most of the joy of the season, as well as hopefully allowing you the chance to enjoy the perfect date.

A Christmas Market

A Christmas market is a great date idea. Think about it, you don’t have to be ultra glam, your date can see you looking fairly natural which is a positive way to start a potential relationship. You can enjoy a drink (a mulled wine maybe) but drink does not have to take over the date, something that can happen if you are nervous. You can enjoy the date, hold hands, enjoy the sites, scents and the smells, but in a relaxed and happy festive atmosphere. Plus, if it doesn’t turn out the way you hoped, you should be within reach of lots of transport links if you want to make a quick escape.

A Pantomime

A trip to the panto used to be a traditional family entertainment, but that is no longer the truth. Many couples love the fun and the comedy of the panto and make it a looked forward to part of their Christmas celebrations. And it does make a perfect date night for a new couple. Why? Well for a start it is such good fun and it allows you to see if your new date has a sense of humour. If he/she sits there with a stony face, this is one date that probably won’t become two, but you might so enjoy a date where you are able to have fun together, the couple who laugh together, stay together.

A Christmas Movie

One of the loveliest things about Christmas is the traditional Christmas movie, and many of the independent cinema chains often have a special Christmas programme where they show classic movies, both black and white classics like ‘It’s a wonderful life’ and more modern fair like Home Alone and Elf.

A movie night is always a lovely date idea, a chance to snuggle up, share some popcorn and generally relax, lost in a wonderful movie. A Christmas movie just adds to the romance and enjoyment factor.
