Dinner and a movie can get redundant, so maybe exactly what you and your partner need is a date at the zoo! It’s a fun and unique way to take advantage of a good weather day. There are many elements that, if done correctly, can make your date unforgettably special. Read these tips for a date at the zoo, and have an exceptional time with your date!
1. Educate Yourself on the Animals
A way to make a date at the zoo an enjoyable experience is by learning about the animals beforehand. Everyone loves learning new things, and your boyfriend will be thoroughly impressed by your knowledge and facts. Intelligence is an attractive quality, and this is your chance to share with your partner your striking wisdom. That way, when he wonders aloud, "I’m curious as to how giraffes drink water with their long necks," you can quickly reply, "They spread their legs six feet apart, then dip down their heads, of course!" He will be mystified by your zoological expertise.
2. Take Pictures
A visit to the zoo is a great way to make memories. Instead of being that couple that constantly posts boring selfies to Facebook, take memorable photos in the butterfly house or polar bear exhibit. This exciting day is one you’ll want to remember, so a camera will be a convenient item in your fanny pack. Take pictures of each other, and ask a bystander to take one of the two of you together. Any of these pictures framed will be a great birthday gift in the future.
3. Incorporate Humor
There are many fun ways to flirt at the zoo. Impersonate the animals, and try to read their minds. Laugh at the animals that act unusually. Compare yourself and your boyfriend to each animal, and wonder who’s most similar to which one. Perhaps choose face paintings for each other, and wear them the rest of the day. Get a caricature drawn of the two of you together!
The zoo is an awesome place to have two dates in one. After a long day of observing the strange behaviors of animals, the two of you will eventually want a bite to eat. Zoos often have concessions or even a restaurant. Use your exhaustion and dehydration from the sun as an excuse to have dinner. A date at the zoo is normally expected to be a day’s length, so take advantage of your time together!
5. Buy Souvenirs
Every zoo has a souvenir shop. Buy your boyfriend a small gift to remember the day by! It’ll have sentimental value because it’ll always remind him of the amazing experience you shared. Maybe buy a frame for one of the pictures you took that day! A keychain is another gift that’ll be a constant reminder of you! I’m not saying spend loads of money, but it’s always fun to surprise your significant other with something special.
6. Wear Your Hair up
Assuming your date's in the summer, the outdoors may reach humid and uncomfortable degrees. Don’t forget to drink water to stay hydrated. Also, style your hair up to avoid discomfort! A simple ponytail or exotic braid is acceptable and cute! This is your chance to try out that adorable updo you saw in a how-to weeks ago!
7. Wear a Cute, Summery Outfit
This is an event that it wouldn’t hurt to buy a new outfit for! Make sure it's comfortable and suitable for the climate. Most importantly, look adorable and fashionable! Wear something other than everyday apparel because this is a date that your boyfriend will actually notice your outfit. He doesn’t want to lose you in the crowds of people. He’ll surely memorize what you’re wearing and be pleased when it’s appealing to the eye.
Zoo dates are absolutely entertaining and gratifying. Have you ever been on a date to the zoo? Did anything go wrong? Or did you have the time of your life?
