This one’s about the unexpected! We’re not even going to tell her it’s a date night until the last minute!
Just 15 to 30 mins should have you covered!
You’ll need a Geocache to hunt for (more on that later) as well as a quick dash to the supermarket for a few snacks.
After you tell her you want to go for a walk, she puts her shoes on and finds a mysterious note scrunched up inside there…
Following that you give her the title of Head Adventurer and an iPhone with a map to follow – the rest is a surprise for both of you!
This date is almost like a movie script – a little bit of mystery, a joint challenge, some romance and a mega exciting finale!
It’s also a great one to get you two talking since the hunting and exploring makes epic smalltalk
All over the world people hide treasure chests called Geocaches then post the GPS location online so anyone can go exploring for it!
When you find the loot box you can take an item out and put something of your back in for the next person – along the way it’s a fistfull of fun
We’re going to use one of these to make date prep easy!
The easiest way to find one is to download the Geocaching app on your phone. From here you can search for treasure spots and use the app among your phone’s GPS to navigate.
Here’s a quick video from the guys who run the site on how it works:
If she likes breaking a sweat on her dates – just choose a Geocache with a high terrain difficulty score. These are a solid effort to get to!
If she’s not a fan of mosquitoes, there’s Geocaches in most cities too. Usually you will find a notebook to sign and some nearby lattes!
You will want a small object or toy to swap with something in the Geocache. Either grab something from around the home or buy something fun such as a lego character, cool dice or a foreign coin from you last overseas trip
Also dash to a supermarket and grab some snacks since you’ll get pretty hungry with all the walking around. If it’s a big trip you may also want some Bug Off and sunscreen
Give her the heads up that something cool is going to happen by writing her a note. Short and sweet lets her to get into the story but still leaves a little mystery. You don’t have to make it fancy like this one – anything will do
To add a little surprise leave the note inside her shoes before work or wrap it around her toothbrush!
Chuck your snacks and picnic gear into a backpack for the trip. Whipping out her favorite chocolate just as she says “I’m hungry” is totally PRO! Don’t forget to chill the ciders for the party picnic at the end too!
It’s pretty simple from here: you’ve chosen which Geocache to hunt for, got the app that shows you how to get there and the snacks are in the bag.
Go trekking! When you get there you have only to crack out the ciders for a picnic and dial up suitable atmosphere by playing some music from your phone
Remember: if you make it about her, she’s more likely to make other things in your relationship about you!
