- The city park offers a serene and quiet atmosphere perfect for engaging discussions. Therefore, it makes the perfect setting for your intellectual debate date. Surprise your partner by picking a topic he's passionate about. The intensity of this intellectual exchange will make your bond stronger.
- While you're at the park, take a break between your discussions to play frisbee or soccer. Your partner loves sports, and this will be an excellent way to incorporate his interests into the date. Keep the conversation juice flowing as you play too!
- On the intellectually challenging side, you can advantageously use 'conversation starter' cards to motivate a good discussion. This exercise also allows you to learn each other's perspectives and how you construct your arguments. Remember, it’s not about winning, but understanding each other better.
- Apart from preparing yourself for engaging debates, there’s minimal preparation required for this date. Thinking about the armful of debates, politics, or philosophical topics your partner seems to be passionate about will be an excellent start. Go with an open mind to listen and understand rather than sway your partner.
- Though your date is intellectual, the added sports activities require casual athletic gear, so both of you should dress comfortably. Don't forget to carry a frisbee, soccer ball, or any light sports gear he would enjoy. Remember, proper hydration is essential, so a bottle of water each would be sufficient.
- Lastly, you will need a comfortable blanket or a mat to sit on. You will be having your debates in the park, and you don’t want to sit directly on the grass or bare ground.

- In the spirit of fun and learning, consider preparing a list of 'philosophy for beginners' or 'politics basics' topics. It’s not about being correct, but it’s about listening, understanding and growing together.
