Top Extreme Date Ideas


1. Interpretive Dance

Interpretive dance means channeling and translating your inner most feelings into an ad-lib dance routine to emotive music that’s completely conceived on the spot. Perfect for couples with a wacky sense of humour who aren’t afraid to get as loose as a goose.

2. Indoor rock climbing

Channel your inner Spiderman and race each other to the top of a rock climbing wall. It’s not weather dependent either – just head to an Anaconda store, or your nearest rock climbing association.

3. Jelly Wrestling

This one isn’t for the faint-hearted or lilly-livered. Don your most awful ensemble or alternately turn up conspicuously lacking in attire. This is best done with the aid of your date’s backyard, a kiddy pool and about 200 packets of Aeroplane jelly.

4. Foods of the world

For a more sedate challenge, you could have a themed night of food at home. Perhaps choose Japanese. You could eat ramen and sushi while watching old Samurai movies. An ideal treat for two after a long working week.

5. Skinny dipping by moonlight

This is one for the bold, or young at heart. You are guaranteed to have some kind of special moment out there on the water.

6. Salsa lessons

Get those hips moving and take some Salsa lessons together – a sure way to get the passion going between you.

7. Have a ‘Ghost’ moment together

Why not take a pottery class together and have your very own special Ghost-inspired moment. Cue romantic music and dim lights. Oh the romance.

8. Go on a tour

Most cities in Australia have a quirky tour of some kind. Melbourne has a street art tour and Sydney has a ghost tour. Or you could get freaky and make up your own. 

9. Swim With Sharks

There are two types of people in the world. Those who would jump into a pool with hungry sharks and those who wouldn’t, which one are you? And will this be the baptism of fire for your future spouse?

10. Bungee jumping

Hurtling off the side of a mountain with only a paltry elastic harness to protect you from certain death, will reveal a lot about you to your date. But hey – why let blind terror (and a weak bladder) get in the way of a good time?

11. Karaoke

Warm up your vocal chords together and have a whole lot of fun in the process. Warning, may entail prodigious amounts of alcohol.

12. Tantric yoga

Forget about standard yoga. That’s for smug, leotard-wearing single people. Tantric yoga is all about harnessing and channeling your sexual energy. Explore your sexual prana together and light up all of your chakras like a Christmas tree along the way.

13. Go to the cinema… but see something different!

Now if you’re going to do a cinema date, make sure it’s a film that’s going to knock your socks off – this has to be extreme, remember? It could be an artsy, avant-garde film or one that is full to the brim with action. This summer you could see The Secret Life of Walter Mitty – the story of a man who definitely has a limitless imagination – as should you with your dates. Happy dating!
