TEEN DATING AND RELATIONSHIPS
5 Great Date Ideas For Teens
by Cami Koralewski
The teenage dating years have the potential to create
some of the greatest memories of an adolescents
life. However, a lot of teens seem to get caught up in
one of two dating ruts. The first rut is thinking that
you have to spend a lot of money to have a good time.
This is not true, is not possible for many teenagers,
and often creates a less relaxed setting for all parties
Other teenagers fall into the second rut, which comes
from a complete lack of creativity: the effortless dinner
and a movie. In a world where individuality is such a
big deal among teenagers, why would any teen want a normal,
every-day date? Dinner and a movie can get really old
after a while and besides, isnt the purpose of dating
to have fun or at least to get to know each other? Often
having fun and getting to know someone is a lot easier
when you are laughing, interacting, and relaxed.
Below are a few ideas for great teen dates that are low
pressure, encourage interaction, and have the potential
for a great time:
Pick out clothes for each other from the local thrift
store. Give your date a limited amount of money to spend
on your outfit. Your selection could be based on a theme
like the 80s, retro, or
the rich and famous. Take pictures wearing
your costumes in a photo booth, with a Polaroid, or any
kind of camera.Wear your new clothes out to dinner.
Use boxes from your garage or a dumpster. Take the boxes
and design cars to drive-through a fast-food
restaurant. You could also take your dinner and cars to
the drive-in theater.
Send out a warrant for your dates arrest,
listing the time and date they will be arrested.
List yourself as the sheriff. You could also
list reasons for your dates arrest (they are too
hot to handle, etc).
Before picking up your date, dress in western clothing,
remembering to bring some for your date (you may want
to include a fake gun). When your date opens the door,
handcuff him/her to yourself and march them at gunpoint
to the car. You could also blindfold your date.
For dinner, you may want to look for a restaurant that
will fit your theme. For example, a jail-house transformed
into a restaurant. You could also decorate part of your
house to look like a jail. Eating sloppy Joes for
dinner while handcuffed is not only challenging, but provides
a lot of laughs! Eating blindfold is even better!
Afterwards, try bowling handcuffed. Its not easy,
but its fun!
Wet n Wild
If you are anywhere near a body of water, renting canoes
can be a lot of fun. You may want to try racing against
other couples, doing obstacle courses, or even synchronized
boating. If you are the musical type, you could serenade
you date with a guitar or just your voice.
Bring a picnic lunch and search together for a spot to
eat. After lunch find some place to jump in and take a
swim! Dont forget the towels!
Service with a Smile
For the teen who is on a tight budget, volunteering at
local homeless shelters, libraries, boys and girls club,
nursing homes, the YMCA, handicap service providers, food
banks, or a soup kitchen can be a lot of fun and very
For example, at a nursing home, there are several services
that you can provide and you dont usually have to
call ahead. Here are some things you could do:
-Sing old fashioned songs and/or play an instrument in
one of the main rooms
-Bring crafts to make with the patients and use them for
decorations in their rooms.
-If its fall, bring a pumpkin and carve it for (and with!)
one of the residence.
-Often nurses need help when games are being played and
also with combing patients
hair, doing make-up, painting nails, etc.
-Some residents just like having someone to talk to. Bring
a list of questions to ask about their teenage years of
see if they have photos they would like to tell you about.
If you go to a soup kitchen, it is important to make an
appointment before hand. You will need to sign up for
a time and must commit to bring a certain number of people.
Usually, your group will be serving the food to those
in need. Free dinner is usually provided after you are
The following internet sites may help you find some opportunities
to serve in your area:
Worlds Funniest Home Video
In preparation for this date, be sure to have a video
camera, several slips of paper with different things seen
on TV, and a funny word or phrase. For example:
Commercial: Hot Lips
News: TV Dinner
NOVA: Great Stunts of our Time: hammock
You could also have a bag of random objects (a telephone,
an apron, a plunger, lipstick, a flag, a wig, etc).
After closing their eyes, each couple draws a slip of
paper from a hat and then takes an object from the bag.
For the activity, they must create the type of TV. program
listed on the paper, use the phrase or word in their program
at least three times, and use the object in their program.
Set a time limit for how long each program must be and
let each couple prepare themselves. Record and watch your
home video with popcorn and drinks.
