Coming up with date ideas is just plain hard! You’ve got to find something that’s fun and exciting but also chill and not too intense. You need something that allows talking but not too much talking. You don’t want to look dumb and you don’t want your date to feel dumb either. Luckily Axe Throwing is a perfect date activity. Here’s why:
1. It’s Finally Something Different and Exciting
Dating should be fun above all else! But it’s so hard to find new and fun activities. Everyone’s been bowling or to dinner and a movie a thousand times. No one wants to be basic. Luckily axe throwing completely solves that problem. It’s something new AND different. How many times have you heard people say, “oh you know, on my 20th axe throwing date last week…” The truth is you just don’t! Axe throwing is something unique and new! And did we mention it’s exciting? I mean it’s pretty hard to throw giant metal tools at a target and have it not be exciting. Your date is going to think they’re on the best date ever.
2. You Can Actually Get to Know Each Other
Dating is all about getting to know each other. You need that balance of being able to talk but also of having something to do in case you run out of things to talk about. Axe throwing is perfect for this. You can have some nice time chatting and then as soon as the conversation starts to lag… oh look it’s your turn! And when it comes to axes there’s really no shortage of topics. Who invented axe throwing? How fast can you throw your axe? Did you see that awesome shot the guy on the left made?
3. You Can Impress Your Date
Let’s be honest, if you’re on a date you want to look good. There’s no way to go around it. Going on a date = looking to impress. Luckily, it’s pretty easy to show your date just how cool you are while throwing axes. You can casually shrug your shoulders and say, “oh yeah, I’m super strong. I can chuck humongous axes at this target. I’m pretty unique.” Your date is going to be blown away by how cool you are.
4. It’s Ok If You’re Both Horrible
The worst date ever is when you’re really bad at whatever date activity you’re doing. You feel uncomfortable and embarrassed and it’s more than a little awkward. Luckily this is not a problem that happens when you’re throwing axes. Axe throwing is something new and there’s not a ton of people who list it under one of their top carefully polished hobbies. If you’re bad at it and your date is bad, it’s ok! You can laugh it off and say, “who’s great at throwing axes anyway?” Or maybe you’ll both be terrific at axe throwing. That would be cool too.
5. You’ll Have a Great Story to Tell
At the very least, even if your axe throwing date isn’t the best date of your life you’ll have a great story to tell. It’s one thing to have a bad date story and it’s another thing to have a bad date story where you were throwing axes. You can tell all your friends about how you went on an axe-throwing date and they’ll know how fun and unique you are.
