Date ideas Utrecht for a fun experience

Quick Details


The importance of humour in a relationship

Ask yourself this question: would you want to date someone who has no sense of humour? Laughing together during a date is a great way to break the ice and create a fun and relaxed atmosphere. It can help both people feel more comfortable with each other and can lead to more enjoyable and memorable experiences. Laughter is also a great way to show that you have a similar sense of humour, which can be an important factor in a successful relationship. 

Think about it: if your date has no sense of humour, what kind of life are you signing up for? A life where every joke falls flat. A life where you’re always the one doing all the heavy lifting in the humour department. Sounds exhausting, doesn’t it?

I once took a date, that I was not sure about, to a social gathering in Amsterdam, just to see how he would interact with other people and if we would actually have fun together in a social setting. Before I could run, he ran, because he felt so uncomfortable around other people. I am now in a long-term relationship with an improv comedian! 

Test your date’s sense of humour!

To avoid wasting too much of your precious time on a boring stick-in-the-mud, it is extremely important to determine whether someone has a solid sense of humour, at an early stage during the dating dance. 

So how can you figure out, at an early stage during the dating phase, if someone has a solid sense of humour? My advice is to take someone to a stand-up comedy show or even better to a Comedy Walk! A Comedy Walk is a stand-up comedy show whereby a local stand-up comedian will take you on a gut-busting tour through the most beautiful streets and alleys of Utrecht. 

Now here is the deal: if your date doesn’t laugh during this 1,5 hour comedy tour, it is definitely a RED flag. It’s a sign that your date might take themselves too seriously. It’s a sign that they might not be able to handle life’s ups and downs with grace and dignity. In conclusion, if your date has no sense of humour, it’s time to run. Don’t hesitate. Your future self will thank you. But if you do have a good laugh together that could definitely be an indication that you should go on another date! 

Book your fun date easily online!

In the booking calendar on this page you can see the available dates for Comedy Walks in Utrecht marked in green. If you click a date, below the agenda you will see the starting time and the language spoken during the Comedy Walk. Note that Comedy Walks are performed in English and Dutch, so make sure you pick the right language. 

To make sure you can test your date’s sense of humour on multiple occasions, just to be on the safe side, we also organise Comedy Walks in other cities. You can check out all the locations for Comedy Walks on our website.
