Ever thought of going on a hiking date? It is a great way to get to know the man you’re dating better. I have never been on a hiking date, until only recently. And it was a magnificent experience, I must say!
I wanted to share my personal pointers and tips about going on a hiking date.
Dress Casual, But Classy
When I went on my hiking date, I made it a point to dress in comfortable attire. Believe me, when I say this, when I go on a date or go out with friends, I’m the girly girl.
I love dressing in a way that exudes my sensuality and femininity. I wear big heels and accessorize. But obviously, on a hiking date, that isn’t possible! I wore fitted track pants and a cute bright blue tank top. I topped it off with simple tops on my ears, slipped on a simple ring on my finger, and applied some simple makeup.
My point? Dress comfortably, but you can apply some light makeup. Stay classy too!
Wear Comfortable Shoes
Gosh, always wear a pair of super comfy shoes! I wore black tennis shoes that I wear to the gym. It’s a hike remember and you’re going to be walking around a lot.
Have An Open Mind
I’m not a super outdoorsy person, but I knew that going on a date at Big Basin, I would have to keep an open mind. I’m not one of those people who hike and walk fast. I get tired easily and well, I’m a klutzy person, too. So I did fall flat on my face. It was embarrassing, but I quickly regained my composure.
Talk About Subjects Freely
I feel hiking causes you to enjoy the present moment in front of you. I found bliss walking on the trails and observing the water, trees, and birds. The fresh air made me feel refreshed.
And it provided us with the perfect opportunity to talk about subjects close to our heart casually. We learned a lot about each other through these conversations.
Like I mentioned earlier, just be yourself. Show you embrace all sides of your personality. I have a quirky personality behind my girly style.
When I fell on my face, I regained my composure and started laughing. I told him jokingly to beware that I’m klutzy. He smiled and laughed at me 🙂
