Hello Brains! And Hearts! When’s the last time you went on a date? If you can’t remember… I’m giving you homework. When we first start getting close with somebody,
it’s usually easy for ADHD brains to stay focused, and even hyperfocus. It’s new, exciting, challenging. We spend tons of time thinking about them,
texting them, trying not to text them, hanging out with them. But as time goes by, their presence becomes
more routine, and reality sinks back in. And we tend to get overwhelmed, distracted,
and hyper focus on *other* things. Things that are urgent (like Twitter) start
to take priority over what’s really important — our relationships. This is a normal process. It’s just a bit more extreme for ADHDers. Which is why it’s important to block out
time for each other on a regular basis. Regular date nights are a great way to do
this. But to be honest, a lot of traditional dates
aren’t exactly ADHD friendly. Movies require things like sitting still — and
not talking — for extended periods of time. Making reservations requires us to remember
to make reservations and also doesn’t leave a lot of room for
spontaneity. Also, restaurants are expensive. That’s fine every once in awhile, but if
we wanna make time for each other on a regular basis, we’re gonna have to get creative. Luckily, ADHD brains are creative. So I reached out to this community on Facebook,
Twitter, and Discord to ask what you found fun for date nights — and compiled 5 tips for making your next date
ADHD friendly. 1. Minimize distractions. So…ADHD brains get distracted. It doesn’t mean we don’t love you, it
means we have brains that don’t filter out extraneous stimuli very well. So that loud TV behind you in the restaurant…we
can’t tune it out. If there’s laundry in our line of sight,
if we get a text message, if we get a song lyric stuck in our head, we get distracted. This isn’t personal, it’s how our brains
work. Some distractions we can’t really do anything
about, and some behaviors that can make us look like we’re distracted, like fidgeting
or not making eye contact, can actually help some neurodiverse brains
be more present, not less. But if we’re trying to bond with the person
we love, we can help our brains out by *minimizing*
things that are truly distracting. If you have to go to a distracting environment
like a restaurant with TVs everywhere, try to get a table facing a wall. If there’s something nagging that needs
to get done, put it out of sight or take care of it ahead of time. Put your phone on do not disturb. if there are things that are going to pull
you out of the date like talking about work or the kids, agree to put those on hold just
for the evening. This is our chance to create space for our
relationship. The internet and our responsibilities will
still be there when we’re done. That said, we probably will still get distracted. When that happens, the best way to handle
it just to treat it like meditation. Bring that wandering attention back. If you think of something you absolutely need
to get done, write it down so you don’t forget it, and then get back to your date. Being present with your person is usually
more impactful than getting it done right away. 2. Make it active If you or your partner have trouble sitting
still on dates, make it so you don’t have to. This is especially important for the hyperactive
types, but it’s even helpful for the inattentive types — because when we move our bodies, we flood
our brains with neurotransmitters that help us relax & focus. Some ideas from the community? Go axe throwing. Take a walk on the beach. Bounce on trampolines at a trampoline park! Mini golf. Go ice skating! Go bowling. Go to the gym together. Drive go karts! There are lots of ways to make a date active,
but know yourself and your partner and choose the activity level that’s best for you and
your individual preferences and limitations. If they’re different, consider combining
them. My parents used to go on bike rides; my dad would ride a regular bike, and my mom
who has a physical disability would ride a motoscooter. It was really sweet. 3. Make it interactive. Interactive dates, where we don’t passively
enjoy something, but we actually interact with it, are more engaging to our brains,
so it’s easier to stay present. They can also give us a chance to see how
we handle challenges and work together as a team, which is an important part of any
relationship’s success, but is especially important in ADHD relationships. Check out this video for more on that. So, Solve puzzles together in an escape room. Play board games. Paint some pottery. Or some minis! Listen to an audiobook together while knitting
or crafting. Play B-movie bingo! If you’re going to dinner, try fondue or
Korean BBQ so there’s something for you to do rather than just wait for the food to
arrive. Download the app “card decks” and take
turns asking each other questions. You can also look up conversation starters
online and try those. “Is a hot dog a sandwich? Why or why not?” Basically, as one brain puts it, don’t just
go on a date, make it a “doooo-date.” No? Kay. Moving on. 4. Make it adventurous. This taps into the ADHD need for novelty and
allows our impulsivity to shine. Go on a hiking adventure someplace neither
person has been before. Try geocaching! I had never heard of this before several of
the brains recommended it but now I really want to try it. It’s basically a giant treasure hunt. One of the brains suggests going shopping
for greeting cards together, handing them to each other in the store, then kissing and
putting them back. Or, try a thrift store challenge. Challenge your partner to find something useable
that reminds them of your relationship. Go on a culinary quest and try the same dish
at a bunch of restaurants looking for the best one. Everyone’s idea of adventure (and budget)
is a bit different, so check in with your partner and see what kind of adventure sounds
fun to them. And then, have fun! Go explore. Finally, 5. Tap into their curiosity. Most ADHDers love to learn, at least about
things we’re interested in. So dates that tap into our curiosity can also
be a great choice. One of the brains said, to me the ideal date is science expositions. It brings out the inner child in me. “Oh gosh, what is THAT? Oh gosh that’s spinning!” Another one bought a small tube of gallium
off Amazon for like five bucks and a cheap heart mold. Gallium melts at body temperature, so he warmed
it up and molded it into a heart. He gave it to her and when it started to melt,
he told her she “melted his heart.” Other ideas: Watch a YouTube video and learn how to do
something together. I’ve got a lot here. Check out a local museum. Go to a zoo or an aquarium. Have nerd dates where you watch TED talks. Take a Master Class. Take a cooking class! If you have different interests, maybe take
turns learning about them; so one week it’s yours, the next week, it’s theirs. Whatever kind of date you decide to try, put
it on the calendar — you know, so we remember we actually have a date — and if there are activities that are time-sensitive,
remember to allow time for transitions, traffic, and looking for our keys for 30 minutes before
finally finding them in the freezer. Then, have a good time and— *I’m talking
to future me here* — try not to put too much pressure on yourself to get it “right.” Dates are supposed to be fun, not stressful,
and hey — if it’s a total disaster, it’ll make a great story. And you can try something different next time. That’s 5 ways to make a date ADHD friendly! Minimize distractions
Make it active Make it interactive
Make it adventurous And tap into their curiosity Thank you to my Brain Board and all my Patreon

    TVs in restaurants is the worst thing ever. No matter who i might be out with, my boss, girlfriend, parents or friends, I CANT GET MY FOCUS FROM IT. So i get frustrated, because I dont want to watch a random TV, my company at the restaurant gets frustrated, and I get frustrated because we are frustrated.
    I shall here by pass a new law that is international, calling it the anti TV in restaurant law. Violations will be punished by daily sending a bunch of "Karens" that will ask for the manager for a whole night

    I posted a comment stating that I need help on your video "What Happened When I Stopped Taking My Medication". I just hate that wherever I look ADHD is described as having a disability and that is not how I want to be identified as. Until recently I have considered my mind to be at an advantage in many ways, but it seems my condition has now worsened and I am ready to put myself out there to get some temporary help through medication. I have known for about 23 years now of my differences mentally–"you have potential but.." "why aren't you applying yourself", I tried 10 times harder than most kids only to fail far worse than most kids that didn't even try. I don't even feel comfortable with posting these comments, so please tell how can I get temporarily medicated without running the risk of becoming misdiagnosed by some quack?

    I am not a super active person but have adhd; what my partner and i like is going to modern art museums – Not a lot background noise and i can walk around and look at everything at once while my boyfriend reads the concepts carefully 🙂 after that we talk about it and have something to drink (to go) also theatre is basically the movies for adhd people! Something about the people being live on stage and the many different stimuli just makes it nicer than looking on a screen

    As someone with ADHD I’ve always made my dates some kind of activity even if we just go get dinner before or after the activity. Not only is it super fun and keeps my attention I feel like you get to know someone better when you’re out doing something instead of just sitting in a movie.

    yeah it's nice to know..
    But what can i do with some sort of depressions and severe social anxieties?
    I don't even wanna picture how it is for me.
    The thing is, all comes down to this elusive feeling of being disconnected from my own life and sourroundings like the opposite of being present, calm and having a few but strong memories about the most recent things, especially the good one's. I've created a character based on the second thing and i would call her something between compassionate and resolute.

    Anyhow this feeling also affects my memories so that the most emotional or important days will vanish extremely fast. A few days later and all of them feel like they were happening weeks or months or even years ago. The same applies to my future plannings or events. They can't really get emotionally supportive if they aren't about 2-3 days ahead. This feeling stays consistently but it can get worse if i was playing obsessively for an extended time. The only times this feeling declined is completely random, or has something to do with a lot of creativity, new friends, new cities, new activities, a lot of sunshine and stuff that happens almost never and definitely without my influence.
    Btw it seems like my favorite weather is about 8-14°C, 70-80% and 5-15kmh.

    Thanks so much for this video as it came out at the perfect time for me! My date has ADHD as well so we have done really well to try and find things we both find engaging as well as interactive in the last few weeks. However, going out to eat at coffee shops is starting to creep into my paycheck so I'm trying to think of cheaper ways we can enjoy time together when it's too cold outside to do much.

    Here's another vote for geocaching. Super fun AND it's a great exercise motivator. A walk just for exercise is boring, but a walk with a geocache at the end is a TREASURE HUNT.

    I like to go to pet stores for dates!! My gf and I both love animals (and both have ADHD) and it's fun to look at all the animals together for awhile and maybe pet/hold some of them! (just don't get too attached and take some home when you shouldn't!)

    another thing to check (if you like cats) is if there's a cat cafe in your area! I didn't know there was one where i live but i ended up going and had a lot of fun!!

    I'm not sure if it's been mentioned before, but the way you structure your videos helps dramatically with my ADHD and keeping my attention on the video. The constant animations, the eye contact, the quick cuts to the left/right of the screen are great and keep my brain from wanting to look away. Thank you for helping me navigate my ADHD, especially with how to handle it in my relationships!

More unique suggestions like that would be lovely as it's hard to come up with adhd friendly date activities that don't involve watching or playing things together all the time!

    You mentioned not making eye contact in this video, and I didn't know that was associated with ADHD. I haven't been diagnosed yet but I'm pursuing it, and making appropriate eye contact with others has been a lifelong struggle for me. I haven't been able to find any information online that explains why people with ADHD might find it hard to make eye contact, only listicles that say why it's important to learn. Is there any actual insight on why eye contact might be difficult for ADHD brains?

    4:16 "Make it adventurous. This taps into the ADHD need for novelty, and allows our impulsivity to shine ."

    Could you do a video for tips on creatives and artists? I’m a composer of classical music, which is fantastic cause it reduces the effort of starting projects, but I struggle to create boundaries for my art stuff making “normal life activities” incredibly difficult! Hyperfocus keeps me glued to my engraving software for hours and hours, but as a result, I can’t break away and be productive once it has begun. Idk, not sure where to even start, so hearing someone else’s tips on surviving an art world might give me some much needed support in that regard

    My husband has ADHD, and, honestly? I have never known anyone so filled with the joie de vivre for the myriad dreams and possibilities life holds. However, for me, it is a perpetual cycle of chaos and exhaustion. I love him, but Jesus Christ Almighty, I am tired!

    "… you will get distracted." As I distracted and go down a rabbit hole of why the right side of her is not slicked back like the left side. And the right side also has a loop of hair creating a small circle by the middle of her ear… I need help. Haha

    I’m in a dilemma. There’s a guy I’m really really really into (really) and he is kinda giving me mixed signals or maybe my brain just wants to believe he likes me. Anyway, he’s good friends with my ex (who I’m also friends with now). So he could bit awkward about dating me. The problem is I’m not able to get him out of my head. Cuz it’s new and challenging, it’s like I’m addicted to him. And I’m afraid my adhd will drive him away because I’ll come across as tooooo interested and available.

    I feel like I’m on a deadline (he’s moving to another city end of the month), and so I feel the “need” to push things faster. And I also feel the “need” to tell him directly that I’m in to him and he should be into me LOL. I can’t seem to be patient. I’m only thinking about this person all the time.

    While the whole word waits on me, it’s like I’ve done a 360 to place him in my life.
    Help 😭

    Can you do a video on how to actively date on ADHD in the first place? I want to love and be loved. But being on the attacking team in the dating game makes it almost impossible.

    I love dooooooo dates!! I find going to the arcade can be really fun. I know, I know, the amount of noise can be over stimulating, but I'd rather hear arcade noise than bar or restaurant noise. Plus, it's so interactive. Playing Mario Kart at the arcade together or a drumming game is so fun. Also I second Korean BBQ! Very fun. It helps that, as I'm living in South Korea, I can eat it pretty often. 😉

    Repaint or redecorate a room (this can be fun OR also go badly, depending on the couple).
