It's obvious that as a bookworm, I love going to bookstores. While I enjoy the solitary experience of going by myself, it can also be pretty great when you have someone to go with. Hence, the bookstore date idea.
I love bookstore dates. In my opinion, bookstore dates encourage conversations and open opportunities to get to know the other person. If it's a first date, you get to hear about their likes and dislikes, favorites and not-so-favorites, figure out their tastes. It doesn't put pressure either, because you're both focused on the lovely shelves.
For me, my boyfriend and I still go and love it after a few years together. We usually enjoy each other's company in silence, as we peruse through, but let me tell you, books have also sparked some amazing, meaningful conversations between us two. I highly recommend trying it out!
(P.S. -My boyfriend is not a huge reader, but he loves non-fiction - mostly environmental, science, and photography books. He just understands my addiction with books, which makes him suggesting going to bookstores even more appreciated.)
Are bookstore dates a typical thing for you? What other date ideas do you have that you think others should start doing too? As always, I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
