4. Take athletic lessons like trapeze, dance, or sports together
Ask your partner, “What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done?”
5. Go fruit picking and pack a picnic for after
Ask your partner, “What are three things you admire about me?”
6. Volunteer together
Ask your partner, “What was it that made you want to date me?”
