Guest Writer #49: “5 Places to Embrace the Romantic Outdoors”

The days are growing lighter; the trees are beginning to unfurl, and a small whisper of spring sings lightly in the air. We’ve nearly made it through what has been another bitter and difficult winter and can now look ahead to the months when we won’t have to stay permanently indoors twiddling our thumbs. This simple weather change opens up day-to-day possibilities enormously – especially romantic possibilities. Rather than a quiet night in, or maybe an adventurous trip to the cinema, the beginning of more promising weather means romantic strolls and picnics and balcony lunches and maybe even a little trip to the nearest breathtaking view.

Now that it’s starting to warm up, here are a few ideas for outdoor dating to get you started…

The seaside…
No matter how you’ve met, whether it’s through a dating websites or through friends, there is nothing more romantic than the seaside. Although British beaches don’t quite live up to the warm and glistening sands of the Caribbean, many are remarkably beautiful and make fantastic dating locations. Take a jaunt down to Brighton for pebbles and piers, or to the rugged and untamed coast near Illfracombe. And if you’re brave, you might even get a bit of swimming in!

The park…
It’s always nice to discover new places, particularly in your own neighbourhood. If you’re not feeling quite so adventurous as to travel all the way to the sea, why not make a picnic and venture to your local park? There are many stunning areas of greenery in the UK, buried even in the most built-up areas. You might be surprised at how romantic one of these hidden-away locations could turn out to be.

Historical landmarks…
Why not suggest a visit to a famous historical landmark for your next date? Have you ever been to Stonehenge or Arthur’s Seat, or glimpsed the famous peaks of the Lake District? If not, a date could be the perfect opportunity for an exciting day trip to one of these places. Not only will it be educational, but it will also be deeply romantic and highly memorable.

Guided tours…
Informative guided walks have become increasingly popular in the tourist industry. These are almost unbearable during the winter months, as you’re shivering too much to hear a word of what the guide’s saying. However, now that it’s milder, a guided walk in your local area would be fascinating. Choose from a ‘celebrity hotspot’ walk to a Charles Dickens -themed walk – the variety is enormous – and soon you and your date will know all the facts about your local area.

The country…
From the Scottish Highlands to the cliffs of Cornwall, the beauty of the British countryside is very often overlooked. A jaunt to the country would be a wonderful way to spend the day with a date. Just make sure you check the weather forecast and bring sensible shoes!

Whether you’re in London online dating or in Yorkshire blind dating, embrace the warmer weather and get outdoors for unforgettable romantic adventures…
