Maybe you both normally run three or four miles a day individually, but together you inspire each other to go farther.
Conversely, maybe you’re not such a good runner but your partner is and can motivate you to become better.
Or, maybe you learn how they thrive on spontaneity versus being more of a planner.
Often, on a formal date people are on their best behavior and best appearance.
By getting outside and physically active, you have the chance to see a potential partner in a different setting—i.e.: not all dressed up and trying to impress you!
Being able to connect with someone on various levels is important in any relationship and getting out of your comfort zone gives you the chance to see traits in your partner you might not otherwise recognize.
If this is someone you’ve seen several times now, it might be a good idea to see how they interact with your pet and vice versa. Not being a native to Denver, this is something I find interesting and a great way to create conversation and enjoy a casual date: take a tour of the city or visit various neighborhoods together.
People love their pets, so what better way to bond with someone than to try bonding with their pet? I enjoy looking at all the different architectural designs and styles of homes around Denver; they’re quite different than those homes and neighborhoods I grew up with on the East Coast.
