First Dates
(for Ages 19-21)

Start a collection such as butterflies, coins, stamps, rocks, etc. You could use the collection to fill a class requirement or just as an excuse to get together.

Invite several guys to have dinner at a hosts' home. Their dates (the girls) should be in grubbies waiting at the host home for the guys to arrive. Ask the guys if they are hungry and seat them at the table. Bring out the spaghetti and salad, etc. and dump the food on a plastic tablecloth in the middle of the table. Then reach over and bring servings into your area and start eating (no plates allowed). They will get over the initial shock. This is a great ice breaker.

Make home-made ice cream. Experiment with a new flavor. If your freezer is hand operated you can take turns twirling the crank.

Buy two balsa wood planes. Go to a balcony of a tall building. Let 'em fly - then run to the bottom to retrieve them and head back up again for another flight.

Enjoy sitting around a fireplace eating popcorn and visiting with your friends. Spend the time telling your favorite jokes and stories.

Have a "Bring your own topping" waffle party (i.e. whipped topping, strawberries, blueberries, ice cream, peaches, apple sauce, bacon, etc.).

Go on a date with a real "Nature Enthusiast". Learn about local plants and animals. Or become experts together. Check out books from the library to help identify different varieties.

Make houses out of cookies, candy, cardboard and frosting, or decorate gingerbread men. Have everyone bring bags of candy for decorations to share. Working in pairs: have each couple bake and decorate their house.

Pick up trash in a section of your community. There are local cleanups organized within the community, or stretches of roads sponsored by different organizations. But you don't have join a group. Look around and see the need.

Exercise together (jogging, yoga, tai-bo, aerobics class, weight lifting, etc.).

Give each couple an object like a pencil. Couples go door-to-door trying to exchange the item for something bigger and better. At the first door the pencil might be traded for a pen, then for a stapler, and so on until the time limit has expired. Give prizes to the couple with the most unusual, the biggest, and the best.

Plan a study date. Be sure you have a well-lighted spot with no interruptions from the outside. While you're working, take refreshment and stretching breaks about every hour.

Volunteer to prepare and serve dinner at an orphanage or a local homeless shelter. While service in needed throughout the year, there are greater needs during various holidays. You can also donate canned and packaged goods. Find out what are their unique needs.

Make a bet with your friend. Make sure you choose something that you can't possibly win. Bet him/her a night on the town. Then when you lose, you can take him/her out.

Set up plastic pop bottles on the fence and have a contest to knock off the bottles with a super soaker gun. Be prepared for a water fight, which is inevitable.
