Spoiler: you won’t.

Now, one of the most obvious dinner date ideas is to surprise your date. No marks awarded for creativity there, but this is where our experience comes into play. Forget all that amateur stuff; a bunch of flowers behind your back, a waiting taxi. What we mean is we want you to set their expectations for one thing, and then blow their mind with your creativity when you pull something completely unexpected. Bait and switch: they expect a cute little meal at your local Italian, then you whisk them away across the land to a gourmet restaurant serving everything wrapped in gold leaf – or something equally whimsical and romantic.

If budget is an issue, don’t worry: you can scale your dinner date ideas according to your budget. Get it right, and you’ll leave them so impressed with your ability to think outside the box, they’ll be looking forward to the next date even before this first has ended.

But that is only one, very vague option available to you. However, there exists an infinity of unique dinner date ideas. So, the real question now is: what’s the set-up? For starters, invite your date out for dinner. Duh.

And now, here are some wonderful twists on the old familiar dinner date:

  1. – Have Breakfast for dinner. It might require a bit of research finding a location which serves this meal all day, but mixing up your meals is a really fun way to show someone you are entertaining and creative when it comes to ideas.
  2. – Meet up in a park for a BYODinner! It’s like potluck but more personal. Make sure to pack cutlery and delph, wine glasses, and a candle to set the mood. Bonus points if you bring a blanket and pillows for lounging and chatting afterwards. Pick a nice location with a decent view, preferably somewhere public in a park.

Now, go forth and amaze them with your memorable date idea – surely they’ll be dying to tell their friends all about if afterwards.
