How to Explore Your Interests With a Potential Partner

Remember when the phrases “online dating” and “fun” sometimes felt like they belonged in different sentences? Meeting someone online used to seem more like a chore than a fun, exciting experience. Enter WhatsYourPrice!

We’re all about expecting the unexpected. If you’re ready to enjoy the best things in life with other adventurous singles, you’re going to want to pull up a seat. We’ve got the best tips on how to explore your interests with a potential partner, so you can connect pronto and dive into the excitement of dating. 

No more basic dates for you. This is the unexpected knocking at your door. Ready to answer and set out on an exciting dating adventure?

What Are You Looking For?

Discovering different sides of your personality sets the stage for real connections. That’s why exploring your interests with a potential partner can enhance different aspects of your day-to-day – well beyond your dating life!

To dive into this journey, you can start by figuring out which new things you want to try. Maybe you’ve always wanted to take a hot air balloon ride or go scuba-diving. This is the time to be spontaneous! Just remember to keep an open mind, because your partner will also bring their own interests to the table.

Are you an introvert who takes time to open up? What about a carefree adventurer who wants to share the trail with a like-minded partner? Or, are you career-minded, driven, and looking for a kindred spirit to conquer the world with? Here are some prompts to get you started on your discovery, while you set yourself up for dating success. 

Camping or Glamping?

If you enjoy spending time outdoors, try to focus on meeting people with similar tastes so you can enjoy the trail magic together. Some journey out in Airstreams for off-the-grid star gazing, while others prefer Instagram-worthy Boho yurts. With so many different ways to enjoy nature, the goal is to find someone who shares your perspective.

Basically, if both you and your match enjoy the outdoors, that could be the perfect setting to get to know each other better!

If Festivals Are Your Thing…

…then the options are endless! From Burning Man to Sundance and SXSW, festivals are a great way to explore your favorite interests. These days, there are festivals out there for everyone. All you have to do is find a partner who vibes with you and set out on an adventure together.

If you connect with a fellow festival fan, it could be fun to also check out new events that you’re both curious about. 

Social Butterfly or Homebody?

Which one are you? Do you feel more comfortable and at ease while hanging with friends? If so, consider finding someone that also has an affinity for nightlife or social events. After all, gatherings are much more fun with a like-minded partner by your side!

Conversely, if you hear the words “dinner party” and cringe at the thought of small talk, then consider finding partners who enjoy one-on-one time. Instead of a gathering, you two can check out the farmer’s market or go roller-skating together.

Dare to Think Big

Your first date will likely be somewhere local (and from a safety standpoint, we recommend that). However, if you’re still getting along really well after the first couple of dates, it could be fun to start thinking about the future a bit and exploring your interests while exploring the area. 

While you get to know each other better, you can make a bucket list of the places you want to explore someday. Are you both into Latin culture? Check out your local salsa dancing bar for an evening that transports you to Havana. Do you dream of visiting Venice? Take your date on a relaxing gondola dinner cruise that they’ll always remember. Bonus points if your partner is  a good copilot who makes great Spotify playlists while you go on road trips! Just remember to keep both hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road ahead. Safety first, folks. 

Chat or a Video Call? 

This one’s pretty easy if you’re on the same page. But if you keep texting someone and they take their sweet time to respond, it could make you think they’re giving you the cold shoulder when in reality, they’re just more of a phone person. 

When you’re getting to know someone, take the time to figure out your preferred method of communication, and learn theirs. Set the right environment to keep the conversation going and take advantage of all the communication tools that WhatsYourPrice offers for the two of you to get to know each other. You can also video call each other directly on the site to determine whether your online connection is really who they say they are!

Learn the New Meaning of Being Open Minded

Keeping an open mind is key to dating success. It creates opportunities for new adventures and lets you stay in touch with your own creative expression. For the WhatsYourPrice community, dating is a way to discover a new side of yourself while having fun with potential partners. It’s the beginning of a journey to get to know new connections while staying true to who you are.
