Whether it be in a park, garden, or your favorite neighborhood, “walking and talking” is a simple yet effective way to get to know your date and get your steps in! There are endless locations to stroll and each one has its own unique flair to match the vibe you’re going for. Not to mention, conversation starters and natural entertainment are around every corner!

2. Dine outside

Going out to eat is a tried-and-tested date. It is the perfect arena for sparking up conversations and romance, and, well, you get delicious food, duh! Try going on a picnic, doing a food truck crawl, or eating at a chic rooftop restaurant!

Mila Tip: if you’re not sure what to get, charcuterie boards or any kind of tasty dips are always a must-have.

3. Grab some coffee

The coffee date is a classic! It’s one of the best ways to get to know your match in a short amount of time while also keeping things low-key. If you or your date aren’t coffee fans, there are plenty of other drink options to bond over as well. So, grab your beverage of choice, sit at a cute outdoor table, and enjoy!

4. Visit a market

If you’re looking for a date that’s different, try exploring a market together! From farmers’ markets to flea markets, there are so many unique products and vendors to search through, and each one will allow you both to learn more about what you find interesting.

Mila Tip: Turn the date into a game! See who can find the coolest item for $10 or surprise each other with a small gift you think the other would like.

5. Catch the sunset

Nothing compares to sharing meaningful moments with your match as the sky showers you both in color. Catching the sunset can be done from anywhere and is a refreshing change of pace. This date will allow you to stare longingly into each other’s eyes or strike an in-depth conversation about the environment — and everything in between!

6. Watch an outdoor movie

Outdoor movie dates are a fun and relaxing way to learn more about each other’s tastes and opinions! While there may not be much room for conversation during the film, you will definitely have something to discuss after. Or, maybe this date will leave you more than just talking…

Mila Tip: check your “This or That” feature on the app to see if you are both movie people!

Hopefully these six summer #date options inspire you and help you choose the perfect date for you and your Mila match. We wish you the best of luck, and no matter which option you choose, remember to always unapologetically be yourself and have fun!
