The pressure to plan a great date has never been higher thanks to social media. You will be judged by how much fun she had based on the pictures she posted. In this video men’s style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, Pete & Pedro , and Ollie says it’s a reality — so he’s helping¬† you knock it out of the date park. What are your ideas? Post in the comments section.

Unique Date Ideas

  1. Thrift Store Challenge — $20 each to find outfits, who’s the winner? The loser buys pizza & beer while wearing the outfits. You’re a gentleman so you end up paying regardless
  2. Open Mic Night — search for them in your area (comedy, musicians, singers, poets)
  3. Volunteer — doing good with each other will connect & bond you (food bank, homeless shelter, dog shelter)
  4. Couples foot massage — it feels amazing and it’s more macho than a pedicure
  5. Live entertainment — it’s exciting and engaging: concert, sporting event, music festival, comedy club, Broadway show
  6. Ghost Tour — they can be cheesy but a lot of fun
  7. Fishing — buy some cheap rods and a little bait along with wine / beer and snacks
  8. Rock climbing gym — even if you suck, you’re doing something as a team
  9. Antiquing & flea markets — find some gems and have fun while strolling around
  10. Be a tourist in your own town — do what visitors typically do but residents don’t

Last Minute Plans?

You should have Seat Geek downloaded onto your phone because if you’re somebody who likes going and doing incredibly cool stuff and doesn’t like getting screwed on tickets it’s a must-have. Seat Geek is a ticket buying app that aggregates all of the tickets that are for sale for a specific event, and then they rate each ticket on a scale of one to ten and indicate whether or not it’s a good deal or a bad deal buy.

Once you’ve downloaded the app, it will show you all the cool things going on in your area based on location. You can browse by category: sports, concerts, Broadway, comedy, music festivals. But the thing that Alpha loves is what’s popular this weekend’ because he doesn’t know what he’s doing on the weekend. This feature lets you buy tickets immediately and do super cool things. Once you find what you want to do, there’s the map where you can see all of the tickets for sale. A green dot is good; a red dot is bad.
