TIRED OF DINNER AND DRINKS? HERE'S HOW TO HAVE BETTER DATES IN 2016!

I really enjoy dating even though I've had my fair share of rubbish meet ups. My main problem is that conventional dating all too often involves eating (and drinking. Drinking is okay).

Nothing would stress my date out more than sitting opposite me in a restaurant. I can be pretty intolerant of people's eating habits, so until we've been together long enough for me to gently change your tastes, it's probably better that we don't go out for a bite. The sound of people eating just drives me insane. My mum once said that it might mean I'm a creative genius, but aren't mums meant to say that generally? 

I realise this all might make me sound like a dragon, but I'm really not that bad! In fact, my New Year's dating resolution is to think outside the box- for me and my date's sakes. I want to do fun activities that don't involve the sound of chomping, is that too much to ask?!

Why not a casual pottery class at Hackney City Farm? Or a trip to a museum or gallery? A stroll around Kew Gardens? Or a cable car ride over the Thames? The zoo, please, the zoo! I can also vouch that it's possible to drink wine at all of these places (drinking is okay, remember).

But maybe not in the museums and galleries, as we're avoiding restaurants and bars...

Let's spice things up a bit this year. Let's play a game! How about, every time you use an app like Once to find a date and get a match, you invite them to do something new? The only rules are, it can't be in a restaurant or bar.

Good luck! And don't worry, at least Once only allows you one match per 24 hours, so it won't get too pricey.
