Would your guy rather chill on the couch than go out? Does he dread fancy dinners or going dancing? Maybe you need to get more creative with your date ideas. Check out these guy-oriented dates that will guarantee both of you have a good time.
1. Batting Cages
Take turns sharpening your swing. He’ll enjoy doing something active that’s a total throwback to his Little League days. Don’t worry about not being a slugger – maybe he can give you some tips. Grab some ice cream after you’re done showing off.
Head to a shooting range and test your skills. Archery is also getting more popular if you feel like letting out your inner Katniss.
Racing will bring out the little kid in both of you. Plus, if he wins, you gets a nice ego boost. If you win, you can make sure he never forgets it.
Head to the lake or the ocean and cast out. Even if you’re not grossed out by worms and fish, it’ll be nice to have your guy there to help you reel in a big one.
