Spring is here, and it’s the perfect time for all the gays to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather. Whether you’re in a long-term relationship or just starting to date someone new, spring is the perfect time to grow your relationship. Now that the weather is warming up, there are more opportunities for outdoor activities, and finally getting some sun and fresh air! If you need some ideas on what to do this spring season, here are eight spring dating tips for gay men.
1. Go on a hike or walk together
One of the best ways to enjoy the spring weather is by getting out and taking a hike or walk with your partner. You can explore local parks, nature reserves, or scenic trails. Not only will you get some exercise, but you’ll also have a chance to chat and connect with your partner. And don’t worry, not all hiking trails are intense mountain climbs! There are plenty of nature trails that are easy on the legs and make for a perfect nature walk.
2. Go to a farmer’s market or street fair
Finally, it’s time for outdoor markets and street fairs! This is the perfect opportunity to try new foods, explore local crafts, and enjoy the festivities. It’s also a great way to show your partner your fun and spontaneous side as well!
3. Try a new restaurant or café
It’s time to try new things! If one of your new year’s resolutions was to try new things, including new restaurants and cafes is a good way to expand your foodie horizons. If you’re feeling adventurous, try a new cuisine or check out a place with outdoor seating. Going to the same places repeatedly can get pretty dull and boring.
4. Attend a sporting event or party
Despite the stereotypes, there are plenty of gay men who really enjoy sports! Spring is a busy time for this as well, with baseball, basketball, and hockey all in season. If you and your partner enjoy sports, attending a game can be a fun and exciting date! There’s a lot of excitement in the air and plenty of food and drinks! Even if you’re not a fan of the actual sport itself, you can still enjoy the atmosphere and energy of the event. Just don’t pretend to be into sports if you’re not; otherwise, it can come off as disingenuous!
5. Have a picnic
Spring is the season for picnics in the park. Pack a basket full of delectable foods, grab a blanket, and head out to a scenic location. This is a great way to enjoy the beautiful weather and spend quality time with your partner!
6. Plan a weekend road trip getaway
This is a great time to get away for the weekend and explore new places. Whether you want to go to the beach, the mountains, or a new city, a weekend getaway can be a great way to recharge your relationship and create new memories together. While this is a bit extravagant for a “date, spring is often the best season to travel to many locations, while the weather is in between “way too cold” and “way too hot!”
7. Explore a museum, art gallery, or aquarium
If you and your partner enjoy art and culture, exploring local museums, art galleries, or aquarium is a fabulous way to spend an afternoon. Many museums have new exhibits opening in the spring, and it’s a great opportunity to learn something new and enjoy the beauty of art!
8. Volunteer together
Spring is a great time to give back to your community and make a difference. Volunteering together can be a great way to bond with your partner and contribute to your local community. And with Pride events just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to get involved. Doing it together can be a wonderful way to bond and grow closer together.
Now is the perfect opportunity to get outside and take in the fresh air! It’s time for you and your partner to shrug off the winter slog once and for all and finally enjoy some quality time outside of the house!
