Dating can seem so tired. After a string of dinners arranged by algorithmic online dating apps, anything would seem tiresome!

Here’s one great solution. Break the monotony and take a class instead of going on a traditional dinner date!

One person got fed up with the same old dinner and drinks routine. Instead, they asked Metro DC dating folks for advice about great classes they could take on a date.

Check out these suggestions and make your next date more fun and meaningful!

Learn to sail with DC Sail

First of all, consider a summer sail. “Most my students (classes of four people) tend to be on the older side of 28 and single or a couple doing it together or a parent/child combo and then random strangers. They have social sails on Wednesday and member sails on Monday. You can always drop by for a social sail it is $20.”

Try Game Night or Trivia Night.

Then try testing your brain. “Trivia is maybe not exactly what you’re looking for because we do typically drink and sometimes eat, plus it doesn’t involve much in the way of elevating your heart rate (unless it’s a particularly close night), but it’s great fun. We also get together from time to time for board games.”

Play a Sport Together!

After that, look for a sports league: “DC Fray is about connecting with friends, making new ones and playing more often. We are on a mission to make fun possible through social sports leagues & fitness, special events, and coverage of the best things to do in DC.”

Visit the Smithsonian for Art & Art Classes

Then, try a museum. “Smithsonian Associates-the largest museum-based education program in the world-produces vibrant educational and cultural programming that offer unparalleled access to the Smithsonian’s world of knowledge.”

Join the Welcome 2 DC Facebook Group

Finally, share what life is like living in DC with new friends. “check out our events tab for some cool events happening in DC in the near future. “A fantastic way to meet people. Especially if you have a bunch of events you’re interested in and kinda just want to figure out what you like to do in DC.”
