If you’re isolating with your significant other, how do you stop things from getting boring, and keep the romance alive? You don’t have to worry about creative ideas for date night, as we have compiled a list of exciting things to do during this quarantine.
Just because you’re in isolation doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy time together. In fact, this time can help you boost the intimacy in your relationship.
The best dates are those that help you spend time with your partner and possibly learn a few new things about them. You’ve probably spent a lot of time Netflix and chilling, but its time to get more creative.
Check out eight date ideas for keeping the romance alive during the Coronavirus outbreak below:
1. Take personality tests
You can use this time to learn more about each other and study each other’s love languages and personality types.
There are easy and freely available tests online to check them. After learning these things, you can then look into other resources that will help you learn more about each other.
It is like going down an exciting rabbit hole, except you’re with your partner.
2. Practice indoor camping
Go back in time to when you were a little kid and set up a camping tent in your living room. Get some snacks, sit in your tent and exchange scary stories or stories from each other’s past.
Apart from this activity being something fun to do, it can also help you and your partner to get to know each other better.
3. Plan a future adventure
There is no better time to plan a future adventure than now when you have free time so that you can have something to look forward to after the isolation.
Choose somewhere for a romantic getaway after the quarantine, research hotels and destinations to visit, so that when this is all over, you can get the baecation of your dreams.
4. Have a casino night
You can get out the games and engage in some healthy competition. Bet on fake or real money, or have some higher stakes for your game.
Since you’re indoors, the game can go on for as long as you want and you can even add some fun personal favours between yourselves.
5. Have an indoor picnic
The ceiling will be your big blue sky and the floor will be your grass. All you need are some snacks, drinks and the both of you.
You’ll thank yourselves for the time spent together and all the new things you’ve discovered about your partner – like how they like to dip biscuits in wine.
6. Start a book club
Did you know that there can be any number of people in a book club and you can make it as fun and competitive as you want?
Select new books for both of you to read, and you can even make it a fun competition and attach some prizes to it. Scribd offers a free 30-day subscription for new users so you can start with that.
7. Watch a concert online
Everywhere is closed now and you can’t attend any concerts, no matter how badly you may want to, but all hope is not lost.
You can still watch pre-recorded concerts on platforms like Netflix, YouTube or NPR’s Tiny Desk Series which has performances from Koffee, Jonas Brothers, Taylor Swift, and others.
You can sing as loud as you want without the inconvenience of squeezing among strangers of having a drink spilled on you.
8. Fix things at home together
This is a great time to complete the home improvement project you’ve always wanted to start but couldn’t because you had to go to work.
Paint the rooms you want to repaint, fix your shelves, clean the house, among other things. Apart from feeling accomplished to have done these things, these activities also afford you the opportunity to bond with your partner.
