Here’s a writing prompt that’s a lot of fun.

Start by thinking about the best date you’ve ever been on, or the best date you’d like to go on.

Think about who you want to spend this afternoon or evening with. It could be somebody you love, it could be a family member or even a pet.

Think about where you’d like to go with this person … whether it is an adventurous afternoon or something quiet and romantic.

And then, delve into the five senses. Write about what you see, and what you hear. Write about the way the food tastes on your tongue. Write about the textures that you’re surrounded by.

And then, dive deeper and go into how you feel during the date — whether you feel romantically inclined, whether you’re having a terrific time, whether you feel a deep sense of emotion or connection with this person.

You can also follow this with a second writing prompt by writing about the worst date you’ve ever been on, or the worst date you can imagine going on. Enjoy!
