Creative Date Idea – Special Event Date


(Online Dating Newsletter) One of the best resources for creative date ideas is right under your nose – local events. There are a couple of ways you can keep track of special events coming to your area. The first is to monitor Ticketmaster ( Check the listing of events by local venue. I do this often and once saw that Champions on Ice (with some of the best ice skaters in the world, including Michelle Kwan) was going to be playing locally. So several months in advance I ordered tickets (to get the best seats) and when the event came to town I was able to use it as a great surprise date.

Touring events, like Champions on Ice (, have wide mass appeal. The audience really gets into the performances, which adds an aura of success and enjoyment to the evening for both you and your date.

Another source to find local events is your newspaper or newspaper’s Website. The only drawback to this is that you usually won’t get as much advance notice. However, for short notice events and quick date plans, it’s a great resource.

Finally, contact all of your local theaters and arenas and ask to be placed on their mailing list. You’ll get notification months in advance of what cool new events are coming to your area. Then find the events you think your current dating or relationship partner would most enjoy and purchase tickets. You’ll be able to surprise your partner with an amazing night of fun.
