When we meet someone we kind of like, it’s exciting and you have butterflies almost on the daily because everything feels so new! Fast forward a few years, and sure, things are going pretty great but you’re also at a different kind of stage.
What can we do for dates when we’re in the early stages of a relationship? What about when we’ve been with someone for a while now? Thinking of date ideas can be fun for some, but for others, it’s kind of nerve-racking.
If you’re finding yourself constantly searching for great date ideas, we have some up our sleeves! Whether you’re in the early stage of a relationship or a long-term one, here are 10 places to go and things you can do with bae based on the stage you both are at.
For New Relationships
Spend a few hours at an art gallery! You can get to know him at a casual level because there’ll be lots to see and you can talk about the art that you both saw together after.
Head to Ilham Gallery and check out the art exhibition Chia Yu Chian: Private Lives. It features the work of Malaysian artist Chia Yu Chian during the last decade of his practice. His paintings were inspired by the bustling city of KL and its people, and he explores the relationship between a modern artist and a modern city in a postmodern society.
Date: 17 February 2019 to 23 June 2019
Opening hours: Tuesday to Saturday – 11am to 7pm; Sunday – 11am to 5pm; Closed on Mondays and Public Holidays
Address: Ilham Gallery, Menara Ilham, 8, Jln Binjai, 50450 Kuala Lumpur
For Long-term Relationships
Take an artsy class together like a pottery class at Clay Expression. At this stage, you probably know more about each other (your likes, dislikes, goals, dreams) and conversations might mainly be about how your day was at work, what’s for dinner tonight, the everyday things. So having an activity where you both can learn a new skill together will allow you to have quality time and also give you more to talk about and share with others.
