Why You Should Try Morning Dates

Why would you go on a morning date, though? Many reasons…

Maybe you are a morning person. Have you ever caught yourself yawning at your partner during date night? If you answered yes, why not plan your lovers’ meetings earlier in the day?  

Maybe you are bored of the classic evening rendezvous with late night date nights setting and want to shake things up a bit. Or it is the beginning of your relationship, and you wish to try different things to create intimacy. 

The morning date also comes with a great bonus. The breakfast, of course! If you are not the type to hang out in a café eating pastries all morning this article is for you. 

Breakfast Date Ideas

Here are some unique breakfast date ideas that will give a more thrilling twist to your breakfast date.

Grab your favorite coffee and a croissant and take a romantic stroll 

This is the perfect breakfast date idea for those who value simplicity! The food suggestion here is just an example. You can make a stop at your favorite place, take whatever calls to your stomach and begin your stroll.

You can choose a nice park to walk in, walk by the beach, go window-shopping, or discover a scenic promenade. 

Make breakfast at home and go for a hike

You can plan a fun hiking date to a place you are both eager to visit. What better way to reward your hard work than by sharing a homemade meal in nature?

Sit among the trees, listen to the soothing sounds of nature, and enjoy each other’s company. Meet up early in the morning to make your breakfast-to-go together!

Exercise, exercise, exercise then grab a bite

Find an activity that suits both of you and dive right in. Have a small pre-workout snack and after all the sweating is over, find a spot at your favorite brunch place.

This breakfast date comes with a bonus!

Exercise has been proven to nudge our brain to release many neurotransmitters, including serotonin, dopamine, and endorphins. These chemicals are responsible for boosting our mood, ensuring your date will be a big success. 

Go for a romantic road trip to visit a famous brunch place out of town 

You have been dating for a while and have already tried every brunch spot in town? Or are you the type to like a bit of adventure?

Plan ahead for your trip, make a reservation at a well-known place for a brunch date, and activate your explorer mode. You can even turn this into a day-long trip and enjoy plenty of fun activities together.

Have a romantic picnic at the park 

This is for the souls that like to romanticize their lives…a romantic picnic date. Invite your date over to pack your breakfast and the rest of your picnic necessities together and head out.

Make sure to check the weather forecast and wear your SPF. You can bring your favorite books, board games, and sketchbooks and admire the nature on the soft grass.

Visit a museum or art gallery and eat at the café  

Maybe you both share the same passion for art and culture. Admiring the long history of a sculpture or the craftsmanship of a painting is very romantic.

Also, being surrounded by tourists might make you feel like you are on a vacation yourselves. Many people aren’t aware that big art galleries and museums also have cute cafés.

Go shopping and eating

Shopping with a partner is far better than doing it alone. Why not make it a breakfast date?

You can hit the stores at your favorite mall and take turns trying on (and why not buying) some clothes.

After you have snapped enough selfies and the sneaking together in the changing room is over, you can rest for a coffee and late breakfast or reverse the order. It’s the mall! All the options are at your disposal!

Stay at home for a breakfast date with games 

Going out is fun but staying at home also has endless potential for the perfect morning date!

I am sure that after 2020, we have found our ways of having fun inside. Order take-out or cook something together, and then get creative.

You can play board games, watch movies, or get nostalgic talking about your past. You can also spice things up with relationship quizzes or even… get in a lovey-dovey mood.
