When you have been together for a while or when kids come along, getting quality time where you and your partner can just be together without any worries of say work or family life getting in the way, is quite rare. This is why more and more couples are having at least one designated date night a month. Some even have a few per month. Anyway today we have a few fun date night ideas for you guys that you can try out.
Movie & Pizza At Home Night
This may sound boring, but if you have kids and you have shipped them away at your parents for the night then take the chance to enjoy the house to yourselves. It may not sound like the most exciting thing in the world, but head to the video store… What, video stores do not exist anymore? Then fire up Netflix or whatever and pick a movie, order some take out and snuggle up together on the couch.
Random Movie & Dinner Night
Sometimes going to the movies can be an exhausting thing when it comes to deciding what movie you are going to see. One thing that me and my significant other have done before, was look at our local movie theatre and we would each pick two movies that we would be interested in seeing. We then write them down put them in a cup and pick one at random. No arguing or trying to get out of it that is the movie we go to see! We did the same for where we would be going to grab a bite to eat before the movie as well. It just makes going for diner and catching a movie a little more unpredictable and exciting that normal.
Going bowling just the two of your without the kids or anyone else is just a great and fun time and I bet you both will be very competitive wanting to beat each other. Again this may not sound like the most exotic and fun thing in the world. But a date night of a game of bowling, some bowling alley chicken wings and a little alcohol is a fun night! You do not always have to jet of two exotic locations to have a great date night and a fun night at the bowling alley is proof of that.
Take A Class Together
This one may sound a little random, but look at your local community or rec center and see what kind of things they have going on. It could be anything from say taking a dancing class to a cooking class. The point is the two of you are doing it together. Not only can this be fun, but it also gives the two of you a chance to pretend you are back in high school again… Just make sure you do not get caught making out in the hallway!
Have a look in your local newspaper or even online to see what is going on as far as live entertainment goes. Look for a stage show, some live music a comedy club or whatever. Going to see some live entertainment is a cool thing to do and something that I bet you two do not do all that often.
