It seems like today’s “ideal romantic date” entails nothing more than a candlelit meal and a movie. Every date is the same tired routine: awkwardly eating dinner with impeccable politeness, griping about our jobs, watching a movie neither of us cares about, and crossing fingers that something good happens by the end of the night.
Get out into nature if you need a break from the monotony of the dating environment. Take your date on a wild night out and try something completely out of the ordinary. The new candlelight meal will be prepared in a dutch oven over an open fire. Going out to dinner in jeans and a flannel is always more relaxed than donning a coat and tie at a formal establishment.
While camping, there is no need to discuss business, as your main responsibility will be to plot out your next day of fun. Instead of going to the movies, you may just lie under the stars and enjoy the greatest movie screen in the universe. Try something risky; success or failure, you’ll leave an indelible mark on your date either way!
Camping Essentials: Create a List
A common camping stereotype is bickering with your companion over something you both forgot. However, pointing fingers at one another over who shouldered the responsibility for the lost tent won’t help the situation. Even worse, it may lead to uncomfortable tension between them before camp begins.
A good rent requires some tarps to ensure your tent is well rooted for the environment, be it rain or the wind. From camo tarps to poly tarps, plenty of coverings aid in the perfect camping setup.
The most important thing to remember is to give yourself plenty of time to pack before leaving. To cut down on disagreements, make a list of everything you’ll need for camping, including who is responsible for what.
Although there is no way to know that nothing will go missing at the campsite, this is a surefire approach to find out who is responsible for the lost tent.
Instead of making excuses or defending yourself for something you couldn’t have prevented, take ownership of your actions and accept responsibility with grace. Don’t let a minor disagreement derail your plans for fun on your trip, and keep working on the task.
Pick Some Camping Duration
You should spend one or two nights camping with your significant other if this is your first trip away together. Intense emotions can quickly surface when camping with someone you don’t know. When getting to know someone, it’s impossible to ignore their personality and preferences.
Exhibit tolerance and patience. You’re both growing as individuals and as campers. Don’t get mad at or blame each other if one of you accidentally burns the supper. Events like these are common. If you can, try to save the food or find a takeout place. You could always split the large packet of your favorite biscuits that you remembered to bring with you.
Get Ready to Cuddle
Many of you have probably seen this true in your relationships: women feel the cold more acutely than men. Science has shown that men and women react differently to cold temperatures; thus this phenomenon is more than just an excuse for women to take up more space under the covers at night.
Women, on average, need a warmer core temperature than males since their metabolisms are slower, their extremities are cooler, and they spend more time sitting or standing. The female body’s natural protective mechanisms for the reproductive system are mostly responsible for these.
Now that we’re back camping, we know why your female counterpart complains about the chill. If she starts griping about her cold toes and fingers while lying in the tent, now is the time to dig out the spare blanket and cosy socks you’ve been saving for such an occasion. This could also be a good omen for a night before a fire if you’re the snuggly type.
The first time a couple goes camping together is often a step into the unknown, but it doesn’t have to be an intimidating experience just because of that.
