Are you looking for some fun double date ideas to enjoy with another couple? Are you anxious to try something new when it comes to date ideas? Have you met a couple with who you and your partner are excited to do something with?
This article is perfect for you because I have a bunch of great date night ideas for you and your partner to enjoy with another couple!
Did you know that double dates are actually preferred by some couples?
According to Psychology Today, it’s true! When couples were alone or separated from one another, they found that the highest quality time they had was when they spent time together with friends. This was also a study done with married couples at times when their kids weren’t around.
I think many couples find that double dates are a great way to connect with each other and their couple friends. This gives them time to connect with someone like them, usually a good or best friend, with their spouse or partner being nearby. What fun double dates do you know of? Why are ideas of dates so hard to come up with?

Remember that it’s okay to be nervous when meeting another couple for the first time on a double date. You may not know them very well or have a clue as to what one thing would interest them. Double dates can often be just as nerve-wracking as a first date. Try some deep breathing before the date to see if that doesn’t help settle your nerves a bit.
Consider mentioning these double date ideas ahead of time to see if they are truly interested in doing them or not. You should get “a feel” for which date idea they seem most interested in. If not, talk to your partner to see what kind of date he or she thinks the couple would enjoy. Come up with ideas, dates that anyone would love if you are still unsure of what they’d like.
Also, remember that they are probably just as nervous as you are. Try to enjoy yourself and remember that you have your partner as a buffer if things get awkward. That means, if the date gets weird or you feel unsure of the vibe that’s going on, you can always talk to your partner about his or her opinion on how the double date is going.
Be yourself, and I think the sparks will fly; in fact, you may be surprised at how little effort you have to put forth to just have a fun time with new people. They will probably warm up to you right away, especially if you are having a good time. Who doesn’t love being on a date with another person who is enjoying themself?
If you feel like there is no connection with the other couple, you can always make an excuse to leave early. Just explain that one of your children is sick or something came up unexpectedly. I really doubt you’ll need to do that, though. Usually, during a double date, you can manage to sit through a few hours of uncomfortable silence, if that occurs.
The best double dates often are full of honesty and truth. If you are getting a weird vibe, chances are they have one, too. Trust your instincts and laugh about what’s going on. Tell them that you are wondering what they think about how the date is going. You may want to explain that you aren’t used to date ideas like this, so this is a new feeling for you.
Consider asking them about what kind of double date ideas they usually have. What kind of double date ideas have they been on before? For them, which date ideas have been the most enjoyable? Get some date ideas from them for the next time you go out together.
Now that you are fully equipped with some awesome double date ideas, you have some great things to try with the next couple of ideas that you can use with this pair. You are now full of ideas on what to do the next time you go on a double date, so enjoy this experience for all that it’s worth!
If you have fun double date ideas, they can be really exciting!! It’s important that you all find something you have in common or learn new things about each other, so next time, you’ll know exactly what a fun double date would be! Get creative with dates, ideas, and more!
Some of the double date ideas mentioned are really fun, so wouldn’t you want to include your best buds on a double date? Invent your own double-date ideas to find what works best for you all. You may enjoy winter sports or board games! It depends on you!!
On a double date, you can do many of the same things you do on a first date. Think of your ideal dates. Now, just add two people to the mix! Enjoy camping at a concert? Ask a couple of friends to tag along and join in the fun!
Treat a double date like a date night with friends if you don’t know the other couple. If you are familiar with the couple you’re going on a date with, enjoy the closeness and oneness that you can have only with really good or even best friends.
Often, these date ideas aren’t ideal. For example, if this is your first date with your partner, you may wish to have some alone time so that you can get to know one another better. Some couples reserve a “date night” once a week for themselves - a night without kids.
What are your best ideas? What kinds of things have you tried and enjoyed? Which ideas flopped, and which were winners? I’d love to hear all about it!
