All right, it’s not the worst quality to have, but being competitive can have its drawbacks. Most people have a certain edge in them that makes them want to win. But some go a little bit overboard and can freak their date out with how much they want to show off or win. There’s a balance to be found between letting your lady know that you’re really good at whatever it is that you’re doing and being overbearing. Choosing a date setting that can compliment what you’ve got going on instead of fighting it is a key factor to doing this.
Going out and dancing or taking a class together will be a sexy date overall, but even better than that you’ll be able to show off. But you won’t be a tool bag; instead you’ll look like an excellent student who’s there for his partner. She’ll love that you’re getting into dancing with her and you’ll love that you’re better at it than the other guys.
Go Rock Climbing
Rock climbing is one of those things that really shouldn’t be all that fun. You put on a crotch-hugging harness and climb up a wall with a ton of fake rock handles. What’s great about it is that it’s not exactly mundane. Going with your date and learning to rock climb together will put you on the same level. Then you get to either even out the pace or bypass her. Keep in mind that she might be feeling pretty crappy if you’re climbing laps around her, so at least make it look like you’re just lucky.
Take a page out of the modern travel book and wander around the city nearest to you. Getting figuratively lost and making your way through different neighborhoods will be interesting and put a little hold on your ego. There’s not really a way to compete here because there’s nothing to do besides walk.
If you have the chance you’ve got to go on a date to play some laser tag. Most of the time this is a younger hang out, but it’s really fun for everyone involved. The best part is that you get to play teams. If your lady is just as competitive as you are then by all means take opposite teams. But if you’re trying to tone yourself down a bit then play the same team and take over everything. This way you get to indulge your own ego and have a good time without pissing her off.
“Take her to an ice skating rink”
Most people have at least some idea of how ice skating works. You may be a pro at it or you might be a beginner. Either way it’s a typical romantic idea and there are some definite perks. If you are awesome at ice skating and she’s not then you can give her some pointers and be a teacher. If you’re equally matched then you can have a good time. Finally, if you suck at it she gets to be the sexy teacher.
