We’ve all been there – it’s date night and you’re struggling to think of something ‘exciting’ to do. That new film from Jason Statham is on and is too tempting but you want to avoid the grief. What to do?
Luckily, we have your back, and we’ve covered probably the 3-types of ‘GF’ in question, fitness types, up for a laugh types and alcoholics!
Let’s get started.
So, your other ‘alf loves a bit of fitness, so why not do something together that combines her love for keeping fit and your love for being hunted, battered and murdered by zombies.
Zombie runs basically entail you and a group of your choice (or randomers if you’re a loner) being chased by a load of dudes and chicks in makeup and dresses pretending to be Zombies. .
Think of World War Z, only slightly more real. You don’t get to see Brad Pitts latest squeeze, but you do get to sweat uncontrollably and run around a city like you stole it.
There’s loads of these events staggered around the country. Most cities have them and they’re fairly cheap too, bonus.
OK, so I’m going to move past the obvious issue of women drivers here. Was that subtle enough? Not sure, will let you decide.
Moving on quickly.
Blindfolded driving does exactly what it says on the tin, Ronseal eat your heart out.
Basically, you and the misses take it in turns racing each other in a car around a track with your very own Stig-guide telling you what to do, while you’re blinder than Stevie Wonder at midnight.
If your worser-half is up for a laugh and doesn’t fancy running around in lycra, then this could be the one. It’s definitely going to buy you some brownie points when none of her friends have done it before (and they’ve done everything).
I’ve never heard a bad word said about blindfolded driving, just make sure your life insurance is up to date.
Gin making evening
So, your other half likes a drink or two, and she would have definitely jumped on the gin-hype that is sweeping the mean streets of the UK at the moment.
Gordons is on its knees. Gin in all flavours, textures, smells and colours is filling the shelves up at Bargain Booze, it’s hard to know what you’ll like and what to avoid.
Luckily for you, young padawan, there’s a super-gin-powered night down the local to fill the void.
For a measly £30 or so, you and your other half can enjoy a plethora of gin in all varieties and be taught by a bearded guy in braces how to decipher what’s on offer.
It’s basically an excuse to get bevvied up and learn something at the same time. So, if she likes a bit of education or is from Newcastle, then this could be the perfect data night.
