It is only natural for people to go on a date. It is a normal process to go through in order for someone to meet the ultimate love of their life. According to a study published in 2018, a women would need to go through seven dates, while men will have to enjoy eight dates before they meet the one. Maybe you don’t need to show up to these sometimes terrible meetups, if only you are interesting enough to catch someone’s attention deeply.

There is no such thing as a perfect date, but there could be a great date. And according to dating experts, one thing you can do to ensure a successful date is to be interesting. To be interesting, you need to bypass the short attention span of a person by becoming intriguing and engaging. You can be both of these two by pursuing an unusual date.

Here are some unusual date ideas that will make you an interesting person.

Open Mic

Adventure does not only happen up in the mountains or in the great open sea, but it can also happen in a bar with an open mic. Here you will experience the thrill comparable to that of hiking, swimming or diving.

An open mic venue for a date might sound noisy, but it is an interesting place to be because it allows you to let loose. You can have much deep conversation after singing, but the way you get up on stage and belt your heart will make you look like a fun person, thus an interesting person to be with.

Wine Tasting

We see wine as a classic substitute to the common dating gifts like chocolates and flowers. But what if you make it into an experience rather than a gift. Wine tasting is a great unusual dating spot for someone you are getting to know as it presents an opportunity for deep meaningful conservation complimented with a relaxing, calm background. It is also a subtle statement that says you are a cultured guy. Just make sure you are familiar with the most popular type of wine like:

  • Riesling
  • Chardonnay
  • Gewurztraminer
  • Sauvignon Blanc
  • Syrah
  • Merlot
  • Pinot Noir


You don’t have to be a horoscope enthusiast to enjoy such a laid back, overly romantic stargazing date. But it will surely make you an interesting person. Personally speaking, this is probably the most cliché date straight out of a movie scene, but it is definitely a romantic idea no one will say no.

 Imagine, lying down on a blanker and just appreciating the beauty of the dark sky adorned with the stars. It would be nice if you can schedule such date with astronomic phenomenons such as meteor showers, lunar eclipses and planet occultation.


I feel obliged to say this as it is too fitting not to “there are many fish in the sea” and so why not go fishing? Apart from being in the great beautiful outdoors, going fishing for a date has the tendency to make the atmosphere inviting, relaxing and calming, thus it gives you an ample chance to really connect and talk comfortably about each other.

  you really want things to be more interesting, by doing a little bit of competition of who gets the bigger fish. There is also the chance to teach the other party who isn’t totally familiar with the hobby.

Art Gallery

Nowadays, who does not like or loved a  well-traveled cultured person? If this is something you would like to portray, then having your date in an art gallery is the ultimate choice. Admiring a piece of artwork is an opportunity for both of you to discuss your thoughts and have meaningful conversations. Art has an ability to instigate thoughts and emotion, something that both of you are technically looking for – making an art gallery the perfect spot. In addition, sometimes they are held with free entrance.
