Alphabet Dating Ideas – Creative Date Night Ideas from A-Z

Alphabet Dating Ideas – Creative Date Night Ideas from A-Z

Last year we managed to complete 52 unique dates, which meant every week was something different. Even though we did complete our goal, it may have been too ambitious of a goal. It stressed us both out to find something completely new every week that it became more about the idea than the actual date. This year, we still want to keep things fresh and interesting and not default to a standard dinner and a movie or netflix and chill, but we realized having some repeat dates are perfectly fine too. No need to stress!

We decided to give alphabet dating a shot. Some people go in order from A to Z, but we’re going to give ourselves the freedom to go randomly. There are three choices for each on the image, but we have a ton of ideas below that thanks the Scrabble Dictionary. It only took me two entire days to read through every word in existence. Now I will dominate at Scrabble.
