7 Cute Date Ideas for the Summer

Summertime. Longer days. warmer evenings, al fresco dining, fruity cocktails... it all sounds like a perfect recipe for a spot of dating, right?

And whether you're looking for date ideas for you and your partner, or wanting to impress someone new you've met on a Hampshire dating site, here are seven ideal summer date ideas...

Get things sizzling at a BBQ for two

Summer wouldn't be summer without people digging out their trusty BBQs and cooking up a storm in their gardens. Make it an intimate affair by making it a cosy BBQ for two. Enjoy some charcoaled meat in the warm sunshine, and grab some drinks and blankets for when the sun goes down and the evening starts to cool off.

Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside

When we think of the summertime, there's no doubt a trip to the seaside will cross our mind. So, plan a full day with your date to take advantage of the weather as you stroll across the sand, compete for prizes in the amusements, and finish off your adventure with an ice cream.

Basket, blanket and buffet... time for a picnic!

Enjoy a slow and lazy day with your love interest by grabbing a blanket, filling a basket with good food, and finding some beautiful surroundings in which to have a picnic. Extra romance points if you pop open some bubbly too!

Visit the big screen - outdoor style!

A trip to the cinema is always an old faithful date idea, but why not give it a summer spin by finding an outdoor screening? Whether dating in Hull or dabbling in Hampshire dating, enjoy the pleasant weather as you snuggle together and watch a classic film - what's not to love!

Grab your walking boots and go on a hike

Show off your active, nature-loving side by taking you date away for an afternoon of hiking. Stroll side by side, deep in conversation, or make things a little more competitive by racing each other to the tops of hills or fighting for the best views.

Unleash your wild side with a trip to the zoo

If you're an animal-lover, and your date is too, then a visit to a local zoo makes for a perfect day. Coo over the cute animals, stop for a bite to eat, and leave with new treats from the gift shop.

Keep it simple with al fresco food and cocktails

Food and cocktails never disappoints, so why fix what isn't broken? Simply opt for an outdoor table, and voila - you have an easy summertime date!
