Whether it’s your first date or your five hundredth, spending quality time together with your main squeeze doesn’t mean you need to spend a lot of cash. Swap the played-out pricey dinner-and-a-movie for something that will woo your boo with your creativity and thoughtfulness. Here are 3 science-backed reasons why you should go on a walking tour date.
1. Learning Together is Intensely Romantic
People connect with each other best through shared experiences. Learning something new together will help you bond on a deeper level. Common experiences have even more impact; a study published in Psychological Science found that shared experiences, even with complete strangers, are rated to feel more intense than experiences consumed alone.
Old South Carriage Company walking tours give you the chance to learn new things about the world around you, whether it’s about the significance of an iconic monument, how to appreciate a bit of history, or how to take the perfect Instagram photo. You will have an opportunity to learn something new together. Cultured is sexy!
2. Get the Heart Racing
Walking or any other type of exercise naturally releases endorphins in our brains giving us a natural high. So a date with some physical activity will leave you with positive vibes. Even if the date was just okay, you’re more likely to think positively about it afterwards because of your endorphin rush. Besides, studies show that couples who are active together have more sex.A walking tour gives you the perfect balance of activity: enough to raise your heart rates without preventing conversation.
3. You’ll Have Something to Talk About
When you’re walking and exploring, you won’t feel like you have to work to keep up the conversation. Exploring a city gives you a natural conversation starter, so take in the beauty of the world around you and share it together. Also, it has also been proven that walking can improve our creativity and help deliver us with inspiration for new ideas. So your walking tour date will keep your feet moving and the conversation rolling.
After all, walking through the city is a lot like being in a relationship. There are twists and turns, quiet stretches and boisterous surprises around every corner, and sometimes the further you go together, the more beauty you will see.
