Cupid's Pulse Article: Date Idea: Relive High School MemoriesCupid's Pulse Article: Date Idea: Relive High School Memories

By Carly Horowitz and Kristin Mattern

This weekend, take a stroll down memory lane as you and your sweetie hit up old hangouts from high school. Cheer for the home team as they play their biggest rival, plan an adult prom for your friends, or relive your first date jitters. No matter what you choose, you’ll enjoy spending time with your man and thinking about your carefree days as a teenager.

Time travel back to high school with your partner and embark on these suggestions for a different yet nostalgic date idea!

Start the date off right by making team-themed t-shirts to wear to the game. All you need is a white shirt and some fabric markers in your school colors. Either pack a picnic dinner or plan to buy a good, old-fashioned hot dog from the snack bar. Remember to bring a blanket- not only will it keep the two of you warm as the night begins to cool, it will also make for a cozier moment.

If football isn’t your thing, take this opportunity to eat at your favorite burger joint from high school. Take a drive with the windows down and the music turned up. Order the same meal you used to eat when you were seventeen, or if you just want to satisfy your sweet tooth, share a chocolate milkshake. Lean in close to your sweetheart and reminisce about being young.

Prom is debatably one of the most magical nights of your teen years. Take this date back to that romantic evening by finding an adult prom night near you, or host one at your house with your friends! Pretend you’re on the prom planning committee and choose a theme, like the 1980s or 90s. You and your partner can wear those slightly out-dated duds that you haven’t worn in a while and strut your stuff as you dance the night away. Or you can model your favorite fashion trends and admire how style has changed over time!
