Why Bowling is a Great Date Idea?

Why Bowling is a Great Date Idea?

Going on a first date can be a little bit stressful and finding the perfect place to go can be hard. Traditional first date ideas may include a dinner and a movie or going out for a drink. These can be fun, but going to a movie doesn’t leave room to talk while going for dinner could lead to some unwanted silences if you run out of things to talk about.

If you are looking for a different way to get to know your date, then going bowling is a fun, out of the box idea for your first date! Bowling is a fun, relaxed way to spend quality time with somebody that you may be meeting for the first time. Keep reading to learn more about how bowling is a great date idea.

Have something to talk about right away

Bowling can spark many conversations. You can talk about stories you had bowling with your friends or family, or you can talk about how you haven’t bowled in years and might be rusty. Talking about bowling will break the ice and open up more dialogue during your date.

Gain more comfort

Bowling is a great way to get closer to your date. Whether it’s high fiving after sparing a hard split, sitting close to them and talking between rounds, or showing them different techniques, there are many opportunities to feel more close and comfortable with your date.

Many different activities

Most bowling alleys will feature an arcade, pool tables, and even a restaurant with a bar. After your bowling rounds and you and your date are having a great time, stop for some food then head to the arcade to continue playing some fun games.

Convenient

Bowling is a very casual setting, so you don’t have to dress to the nines like you might if you go to a fancy restaurant. Shoes and bowling balls will be provided, so all you need to bring is your confidence and smile to make a good impression on your date! Some bowling alleys allow you to eat and drink at your lane, so you don’t even have to move around if you do decide to get food or drinks!

Get to know your date deeper

Bowling can give more of an insight into the person you are going on a date with. Since bowling can be both casually and competitively played, you can pick up on some traits. For example, does your date smile and laugh when they accidentally roll their ball into the gutter or do they get fired up when they get a turkey. Bowling can be a great way to see if your date is more laid back and care-free or if they thrive off of competition and always yearning for more!

If you are looking to have a fun first date in a pressure-free environment, roll over to Bowl BC! We have bowling alleys all over Vancouver including Fraser Valley, Lower Mainland, Northwest BC, Okanagan, and Vancouver Island.
