  • The date starts at a pre-arranged meeting point near the pier. Once aboard, you'll glide past the lit-up landmarks of London town, experiencing the romance of the city from a unique perspective. As the city pass by, engage in interesting conversation and bond over shared experiences and perspectives.
  • Enjoy drinks and canapés on board to keep the conversation flowing while helping you relax and enjoy the ride.
  • As the moon rises and the city's reflection shines on the water, you can walk around the boat, feeling the cool breeze and bonding over the shared experience of this unique London adventure.

Preparation steps:

  • Make sure to plan this date on a day with pleasant weather. Booking the boat ride a few days in advance could also ensure a smooth and organised date.
  • As this date typically takes place in the evening, picking a semi-casual outfit that suits the weather and the venue would be ideal. Ensure that you are comfortably dressed to walk around on the boat deck.
  • It would be a great idea to have a general idea about the landmarks that the boat will pass by. This could provide interesting conversation topics and show that you put thought into the date.

Some tips:

  • Pack light for this date. Carrying too many items on board could be inconvenient.
  • In terms of conversation, being open-minded and respectful of each other's cultures can facilitate a deeper connection. Demonstrate interest in your date's experiences as part of an interracial relationship.
  • With the city's skyline as your backdrop, don't forget to capture a few memorable moments. However, remember that the focus should be on creating a real connection with your date. So, keep mobile use to a minimum, except for perhaps some quick photography.
