If you’re dating a Scorpio or just have your eye on one, you know that you’ve got to keep things interesting. Scorpios like things a little edgy, a little off-centre.
Scorpions have earned their reputation as the kinksters and daredevils of the zodiac for a reason.
But, knowing exactly romancing a Scorpio can be a little daunting for the rest of the zodiac, how do you keep your Scorpio entertained and engaged?
Boredom is their Kryptonite.
How will you turn up the heat on romance?
Read on for 6 great date ideas for the Scorpio in your life:
1. Explore a new underground scene
Scorpios love to be the first to discover a new bar, band, or attraction. Find a local dive bar or alternative music space and make an evening of it.
Bonus points if you can find an undiscovered local band to listen to, some avant-garde performance art, or a hole in the wall bar with an amazing cocktail menu.
Whatever it is, as long as your Scorpio can say they knew about it before it got popular, this date will be a hit.
2. Go on an adventure
Scorpios love to explore new places, blaze new trails, and live life on the edge.
Be willing to engage in the spirit of adventure with your Scorpion. Take a day trip to some small town with a strange festival and see what mischief you can get into.
Or play tourist in your own city by going to the tourist attractions that locals never bother to visit, even though they drive past them every day.
Break out the map and pick someplace neither of you has ever been to and make a day of it, complete with a stop for junk food snacks and car karaoke.
3. Get your adrenaline rush on
Scorpios are adventurers and hedonists.
They love the rush of adrenaline they get from doing something risky and new. Take your Scorpio sweetheart somewhere that can get both your hearts pounding. Go ziplining, take a rugged hike, hit an amusement park with a killer new coaster.
If you’re feeling really brave, bungee jumping or skydiving, even the indoor kind, can make for a fun time with your Scorpio sweetie.
4. Get wet
Scorpios love to spend time outdoors, and if they can be in the water, so much the better.
You can choose an extreme adventure like white water rafting or cliff diving, but your Scorpio would probably be happy to float down the river on an inner tube with some cold beer, chill out on the beach with a margarita, or even head to a lake for some boating and swimming.
Make the day as chill as you’d like, with time for quiet relaxation away from those crowds that Scorpios both love and hate.
5. Indulge their decadent side
Scorpios are known to be pretty kinky though they often keep that under wraps until they know you well.
While it’s not exactly first-date appropriate, indulging that side of your Scorpion with a trip to a dungeon, fetish club, or BDSM event could definitely heat things up. Be sure to talk with your Scorpio first. Consent is not only sexy, it’s mandatory and doesn’t spring this date as a surprise.
If your lover is into it, spending some time at such an event could really heat things up when you get home.
If a public kink event isn’t for you, you can also visit a leather or fetish shop for some things to have your own naughty adventure at home alone together.
6. Get your luxe on
Scorpios love the finer things in life, from good food to the best clothes.
Plan a date where you can spoil your Scorpio. You might choose a weekend at a fancy spa, where you can relax in the whirlpool tubs, get a couple’s massage, and generally luxuriate. Or rent the honeymoon suite at a fancy hotel and order up room service, complete with champagne, strawberries, and truffles.
What about a limo to the hotel, or a horse-drawn carriage ride through a gorgeous park or fancy historical neighborhood?
Channel your inner royalty and plan a night or a weekend full of only the finest things you can find.
Dating a Scorpio is nothing short of an adventure
Dating a Scorpio is never dull.
Those born under the sign of the Scorpion are delicious contradictions. They love to get out and get dirty in the rugged outdoors, but they revel in fine food, drink, and clothes.
They’re adventurous but also somewhat reserved until they get to know you. They’re equally happy in a dirty dive bar, greasy spoon diner, or upscale wine bar or country club.
If you’re willing to be adventurous and spontaneous, your Scorpio sweetheart will keep things interesting for a long time to come.
