Be Prepared to Step Out of Your Comfort Zone For Date Activities
Thinking back on my dating experiences, I've encountered one too many vague phrases like, "Let's hang out," which usually ends up being a "Netflix and chill" situation, in which I got all dressed up to sit on someone's couch. So imagine my shock when my first date abroad asked me out to a trendy rooftop bar in London. There's so much to do when you're in a different country which opens up the possibilities for date activities. Dinner dates, museum/art gallery dates, scenic picnics, concerts, hiking, going for a swim, and grabbing drinks at a trendy bar are all common date activities you may encounter. Especially if you're in Europe where the drinking age is lower than the US, grabbing a few cocktails is a popular first date activity.
While I know a lot of these dates are also popular and available in the US, enthusiasm for them is just different abroad. So, be prepared and just embrace it all!
