Hey everyone! So I've been in a relationship for four months now, and have been dating my guy for about six. I've run into a few problems concerning my health (and his.)
Most of our dates have involved dining out. We used to have more active dates (going for a walk around the lake, browsing stores, etc) but now that it's winter in the upper Midwest, our options are slim. I'm more open to doing outdoor things (skiing, skating, what have you,) but he doesn't like either. His reaction to my suggestion of rock climbing was 'meh' and I've been unsuccessful in getting him to go dancing with me. We went bowling once, both loved it, and will go again, but I need more ideas.
So, what suggestions do you guys have for more active dates?
It doesn't help that whenever we go out, he grumbles about eating another unhealthy meal and the weight he's gained. I think it's great that he's concerned about his health, too, but not being able to enjoy my dinner is driving me nuts! I think overall my diet is healthy, so I don't usually feel bad when I go out to eat. Ultimately, I think living healthy is about what you eat on a regular basis and how active you are. I want to tell him to start eating at home instead of out every single day, to move a little more, and to enjoy his damn dinner, but that's not really the nicest way to do it. I just don't know what to say without coming off as tactless and mean.
