Dating is tough these days.
If it’s not a movie date, it’s a dinner and shopping. While there’s nothing wrong with that, sometimes having variety isn’t a bad thing.
After all, variety IS the spice of life. But if you’re fickle or indecisive and cannot seem to make up your mind on what to do, there’s an app to help you with that.
While I’m sure that binge-watching seasons of Brooklyn Nine-Nine on Netflix is entertaining (it really is. It’s a great series), your partner might not think so.
*cue infomercial music* Getting bored of staying home? Finding it hard to go on interesting dates? Introducing Date Out! This brand new application curates a selection of date activities, unique experiences, and even gift ideas for couples! *cut music*
Okay, you get the point. So, despite my singlehood, I downloaded the app to check it out, FOR JOURNALISM!
The app has 5 different categories of experiences – Workshops, Sports & Adventure, Personalised Gifts, Intimate Gifts, and Flowers.
At the moment, only 3 of the categories are populated with experiences. I mean, the app is very new, so give them some time.
You can choose from Unicorn Cake workshops for 2, Terrarium workshops, Leather Crafting, and even Friday Night Themed Cooking workshops for 2!
Sports & Adventure
The Sports & Adventure category currently has Go-Karting activities, Segway guided tours, escape rooms, combat saber experience, and many more!
The Personalised Gifts category offers customised stamps, candles, personalised jewellery and even customised wood watches for couples!
I guess we’ll have to wait for them to find more vendors and update the remaining categories, Intimate Gifts and Flowers.
For those of you wondering what “Intimate Gifts” is going to include, I can only say this, the app asked if I was above the age of 18.
If you purchased a gift or flowers via the app, you will be able to track your orders and see your order history within the app.
The app even tracks your current location and every workshop listed in the app currently, is displayed on the map as a gift box, so you know where to go.
They Didn’t Forget The Singles
Also, while the app is primarily targeted at couples, it can also cater to friends who are looking for unique activities to do in Singapore.
Date Out offers a comprehensive reward system, where regular users can accumulate points and redeem them for tickets or curated events.
Every “experience” you book or gift you buy via the app, will entitle you to 5 Date Out points.
The rewards that are redeemable with Date Out points at the moment include Starbucks vouchers, a pair of Golden Village movie tickets, and Capital Land vouchers.
Date Out can now be downloaded for free on iTunes and Google Play and online at their website.
Now there’s no excuse for not knowing where to go or what to do for your next date.
