Whether you are the one with a disability, or you are going on a date for the first time with someone who has a disability, you will be amazed at all of the fun outings that you can enjoy. A disability does not have to be the center of attention for the date. There are many different dates you can go on that will allow both of you to have a great time.
Music has always been a way for people to connect. It does not matter what type of concert you attend – a large staged event or a private outing. You can enjoy the music and each other! Different types of music will bring on different moods. Don’t stick to just one genre. Blues and jazz give the day a sultry feel, while a classical concert may be more stimulating for conversation. The choices are endless, and the outcome most surely will be a day of fun.
There is something surreal about going to an aquarium. An aquarium gives you many things to look at and talk about, and there are always opportunities to interact with the displays. Many aquariums have areas where you can touch different sea creatures, for example, or interact in some way. This is a great way to have a first date that is low pressure and gives you both something to explore and enjoy. It is also a great way to have a casual conversation if you are feeling nervous about being on the date.
Historical Site or National Park
Enjoy a day exploring a local historic site or national park. Most of these places have been upgraded to be accessible to people with disabilities. If you or your date are history buffs, it gives you a chance to share your passion or learn something new. If you love the outdoors, a national park will be a great place to explore and have a picnic. Too many people see these historic sites and parks and say, “one day I will visit.” Use this date as a reason to go and enjoy a day of doing something you always wanted to do while getting to know someone new.
Art is as diversified as music. There are so many styles of artwork that you are bound to visit a museum that fits your tastes. Even if the artwork is not to your taste, visiting an art museum is a way to start a conversation and connect on a more intimate level. Being able to share opinions on a piece of artwork that you are viewing together creates a bond. If you both love art, go into an art district and look at the galleries or just window ‘shop’. You can stop at a café and have a wonderful discussion about what you saw.
