(for Ages 22-24)
Share your talents with one another. Sit your date down and play him/her a musical number. Then have him/her share one of his/her talents with you.
Have a poetry party. Tell everyone to bring their favorite snacks and prose. Then get together and take turns reading. Or at a cookout, bring along your favorite poetry to read by the campfire.
Have a cultural progressive dinner. Eat an appetizer at the first house (Italian ice to cleanse the pallet), soup at the second (Chinese egg-drop soup), main course at a third home (Mexican fiesta with tacos and beans), and dessert at the last home (French pastries). To add additional authenticity, add music and decorations at each location.
Select a play. Bring enough scripts, props and costumes (everyone can bring something). If there are more parts than people, no problem. Video tape the play. If you have enough people, select more than one play and have a competition.
Get a travel guidebook for your city (library or a bookstore). Visit attractions that are off the beaten path (or that you have never seen). A guidebook may also contain self-guided walking tours that are fun and interesting. Or get a guidebook for a nearby city and make a day trip there. Plan to grab lunch at an outdoor café.
Find a concert which features the works of a renowned composer. Prior to the performance, research that composer together, his/her life history and works. Attend a concert containing his/her works, then return home to refreshments and a discussion about the concert and how you were affected.
Get together with some others and do a readers’ theater. Go to a library and check out several copies of a play you’ve always wanted to see, assign parts, and have a dramatic evening.
Attend an art show. Study each artist's creation and try to understand his feelings and symbolism. You could go to an art gallery, an art exhibit at a local college, an art museum, or perhaps an art fair. If you are visiting a museum, you can often receive materials for a self-guided tour to gain greater insights to the art and artists. At an art fair, you can talk directly with the artist.
If you live close to a zoo, spend a whole day there. See if you can name the native countries of animals. Check to see if your zoo has geocache sites to test your treasure hunting skills. Bring your siblings or other relatives to learn about how your date interacts with children.
Take your date to an airport. Pick out all the suspicious looking people and create stories detailing their imaginary pasts. Tour the terminal, visit the observation deck, catch lunch in the main terminal, and perhaps carry baggage for an overloaded passenger.
Attend a good local stage production (university, high school, community, church, or theater group). Check your local paper's entertainment section for alternatives. Go afterwards for a light snack or dessert.
Pick a type of music you don’t usually listen to and go listen to a live performance. Take note of the people there who enjoy it. Try to listen through their ears. The local newspaper's entertainment section is a good place to look for venues.
Listen to a radio countdown of the "Top 10" songs. Together rate each piece on artistry, value of words, overall effect, and music.
Go to church together. If you are both religious, take your date to your church and then go to your date's church the next week. Before you attend, ask about what happens during the service, and what you need to know. What is the appropriate dress? How long does the service last? Who is responsible for the service? Do members of the congregation participate? Be sensitive and seek to understand.
Attend a summer rodeo. Almost every big city has a rodeo, and in some places, even high schools compete. Check the internet to find an event. Wear jeans, boots, and a cowboy hat. You don't have to wear boots and hat, if you don't have them, but you can check out the local thrift store.
