Active dates and meet and greets

Active dates and meet and greets

Talking is great except when you are nervous, out of your comfort zone or just say the wrong thing like we all do from time to time on a first meeting. There goes the first impression.

Who else would feel more comfortable running, hiking, dancing, working out etc? Somewhere you feel more like yourself and under less pressure.

What is your favourite way to meet new people? Would you be interested in an active date or active meet and greet?

A game of pool, a few drinks, and chit chat seems to work pretty well for us.

I have organised a ten pin bowling night and a bare-foot lawn bowls afternoon/evening. They both seemed to work well as a form of 'social lubricant'.

There were all manner of bowling skills on display at both events but no-one seemed too worried about that aspect. I think having an activity to focus on gave all the participants some conversation fodder that made for a relaxed atmosphere.

I should add that the down side of organising a theme-based meeting is that you can (inadvertently) discourage some people from attending if they feel that the theme isn't quite their thing.

Equally, the up side of a theme-bases event is that you get to meet other people with whom you share at least two common interests, lol...πŸ˜‰

Active dates

Sounds like a fabulous idea, some would be weather permitting. I like the OP idea of a hike, nothing to strenuous, I’d prefer to save my energy for playing. Showing my country upbringing, a bonfire & BBQ a few drinks, background music. Or a beach party in summer would be good fun, starting late afternoon or early evening.



Is barefoot bowling, ten pin bowling with no shoes πŸ‘

They all sound alittle too strenuous

To me, but then again I well know I am not anywhere like the type of person who you seek.😁



Having been to the two events SuppleHands has run, they are what would appeal to me because they are relaxed, fun, and provide opportunity to get to know each other through a common activity. The ones the OP mention don't seem to be conducive to conversationn which helps in the whole 'get to know you' process.



OP, if you are after an active event which appeals to your fit & healthy requirements in partners, then for sure suggest them to potential partners. πŸ‘

Is good, maybe a bbq in a national park where people can go for a walk or hang out by the sausages if that is their want.

I would really would enjoy meet up for a coffeedrin or a meal and nice conversation. And that with 10% no pressure in a sense that if you come along and you or me don't like it, just say so and go. No bad feeling about. I have done a few times and is so good...

Some really great ideas. Different things appeal to different people. We have tried coffee and drinks and we were both so nervous, especially me.

A few hundred K's.

On motorcycles, maybe the Quindanning pub for an overnighter.

1st meet

A public place for coffee/drink is all good with me. Gives me an option for a quick escape or decide after that, for a more active meet (2nd meet).

Not interested in active/inactive group meet ups, unless it is with people I already know.

I don't know. All that bending over sounds pretty sexy to me. I'd give lawn bowls a try.

Hell no! I like to dress up, smell good and make a good physical first impression on a date. Not interested in getting sweaty, red-faced and letting someone see just how skinny fat I am by exercising, I save the sweaty, red-faced look for later down the track in the bedroom

And super fit people intimidate me and probably wouldn't be attracted to us anyway...I'm a big fan of night time drinks or a light meal in a nice bar. Or meeting at any of the events where you can dress to impress.

Yes, nervous or not..

I still like the coffee / drink senario. I look at it this way ' you are both nervous anyway , so the only thing that'll settle that down is if you find common ground. And isn't that the whole purpose meeting in the first place ' to check see if theres any chemistry ? Doesnt matter if nothing eventuates , at least you tryed and now know. Besides ' you probally made a nice friend which ever way it goes..
