It's a date

Categories: No items found.

Whether it’s a candlelit dinner, a night at the movies, or something a little more creative, couples are advised to step away from the stresses of everyday life for a night in order to make time for one another and reconnect.

We’re not just talking any old movie night, we’re talking, phones off, laptops away, blankets and pillows on the floor, sodas in the fridge, and an abundant supply of Maltesers and popcorn. Both of you each get to pick a flick and you have yourselves a cosy double bill.
So this one could work for a day date, a date night, or heck, even a date weekend. Get away from it all with your other half and just hit the road. It doesn’t matter where you go as long as the views are good, and the playlist is awesome.
Okay so this might not sound like the most romantic way to spend your time, but helping other people is a great way to bring two people together. Whether you’re playing with kids at camp, or prepping food in a shelter, share the love outside your relationship, and you’ll enhance the love within it.
My other half and I love doing this one – and we don’t have a garden, so it’s even more of an adventure! We’ll cook up our dinner, (or sometimes, if it’s the weekend, our breakfast), pop it into some wooden bowls, grab a blanket, and take a stroll up to our nearest park. It’s such a novelty, after a day at work, to flake out together with some food. And so much nicer than sitting at home after dinner with the telly on.
Not everyone will live near a skyscraper, but look for the tallest building in your city, and race your partner to the top. Skip the lift, and see how long it takes you to make it up 40 flights of stairs. Getting to the top is even better when you’ve been put out of breath trying to get there. And is there anything more romantic than a roof with a view?
Depending on where you live you might have access to a farm, a petting zoo, a city zoo – or maybe even a safari park. Spending a day among cute furry creatures and big scary beasts, is not just romantic, it’s a lot of fun too.
A seasonal date idea that is rewarding in more ways than one, spend the day fruit picking with your other half, and get some quality time together, along with enough produce to keep you in jams and tarts for a year. Have a look online to find your nearest fruit farm, chances are, even if you live in a city, there’s one nearby.
Wherever you are in the world, riding bikes is always a good idea. Seeing a city on two wheels is so much fun, while exploring forests and country lanes by bike can be exciting and romantic. Just remember to wear a helmet – and if you’re feeling super loved-up, why not rent a tandem?
This might not be everyone’s cup of tea (or cup of sangria), but letting your hair down together, and putting the world to rights over a drink or two, is sometimes all you need to regroup.
So the Tex-Mex restaurant on your street might be incredible, Italian is your eat out go-to, and your Indian take-away knows you by name – it’s time to branch out with some new eats. Next time you make a date for dinner, why not surprise your other half by trying something totally different. Even if you find out Korean food is not for you – at least you can say you’ve eaten a raw octopus!
There’s something just so fun about taking to the water – I think it reminds me of fun days out as a kid. If you don’t live near the sea, look for canoe spots in lakes or rivers nearby, or hit your nearest park with row boats and pedalos – it doesn’t matter if you’re in a super yacht or a giant swan, pack a picnic, and have a wonderful day.
If you’re stuck for a date idea, this one will never fail to woo the one you love. Because it’s where you wooed them first. Head to the place you first met, or had your first date. Hit the bar where you first bumped heads, or go to the restaurant where your friends set you up on that blind date. There’s nothing like a walk down memory lane to remind you why you fell in love in the first place.
