5 Fun Date Ideas
Nothing keeps a romance alive like a good old date. I love the anticipation I feel when I touch up my makeup or switch into a wonderful pair of shoes right before I run off to dinner. Conversely, it's also a bit tiring and -- let's face it -- boring to have dinner date after dinner date, month after month, year after year. It becomes a routine rather than a thrill. If you and your honey have had your fill of traditional dates, here are five out-of-the-box ideas.
1. Do a New Outdoor Activity Together
Hiking, rock climbing, biking, or even kayaking are all fun things that you can explore and learn together. They can be cooperative or competitive depending on your personalities, and best of all, it's also good for you. Studies have shown the exercising can increase longevity and reduce stress, which means healthier, happier couples.
2. Take a Cooking Class Together
On the opposite side of the spectrum, this activity veers a little more into indulgence. Right after college, my sister and I took a sushi class together. It was fantastic, and afterwards, we were able to impress the family with our awesome rolling skills. A cooking class is not only delicious, but this is a date that you (and the people you dine with) will cherish for years to come!
3. Go to the Arcade
Reclaim your childhood by killing zombies or racing cars. If one of you is very good at arcade games or very lucky, you can even try to win each other stuffed animals!
With all our loved ones, we often take them for granted or forget how amazing they are. One of the ways to remind you how awesome your spouse is, is to do good together.
5. Go to a Comedy Club
Support the local arts and see what your local community's stand up comedians! You can even pick up a quick dinner beforehand.
