Dinner and a movie have become one of the most common types of date that many of us have been on. Generally when one first starts dating in our teens or early twenties these types of dates are fine. As many of us get older, we have been on countless dates like this and have started to dread the common “dinner and a movie” date. Nothing is more dreadful then going on the same type of date over and over again. It seems like the only thing that changes is maybe the food or the person on this type of date. Instead of going on one of these boring dates, be a little adventurous and try taking a date on a float trip on one of the beautiful Missouri Rivers and add a little spice to your dating life.
Research shows that those couples that go on a date that is out of the ordinary and adventurous, such as a float trip, generally bond faster with each other and will generally go out on a second date. After all many of us are bored with typical dates and have a tendency to turn down a second date from a person, if the first date was boring. Dating should be fun and exciting for both people involved.
Many couples enjoy fishing from a canoe while floating. The Rivers of Missouri offer some of the best fishing in the Midwest. Trying to catch a Bluegill or Catfish while floating down a river can be a lot more exciting then just sitting on the bank. Not only do you have the chance of catching “the big one”, if you catch enough fish, you have dinner for later on that evening.
Asking a person on a float trip not only shows that you have a fun and exciting side, that you also enjoy nature. Many couples enjoy watching the native wildlife together from a canoe while floating. Deer can be seen grazing along the riverbanks, while squirrels jump from tree to tree performing amazing acrobatic feats of skill.
Packing a picnic lunch to take on a float trip does not have to be a boring bologna sandwich and chips. Instead try packing a variety of gourmet cheeses, high-end lunchmeats, fruits and Artesian breads. And do not forget to pack something to drink. Wine from one of the local Missouri wineries makes a great choice to compliment your gourmet lunch. This simple lunch served on the banks of one of the beautiful Missouri Rivers is sure to make for a romantic meal.
Taking a date on a Missouri float trip is a unique way to get to know someone or to reconnect after a long hectic week at work with a sweetheart. The clear cool waters and the lush green landscape makes for the perfect setting for a date. By not going on a boring and ordinary date can help to get a second date or add some adventure back into a long-term relationship. So, pack a picnic lunch and float down one of the Missouri Rivers for a one of a kind date.
