So you’ve been together for a couple months now. The early-dating-honeymoon-phase has warn off and you are suddenly finding that more and more you and your man are spending your evenings sitting in front of the tv, gorging on pizza, and falling asleep before the Late Show comes on. Ugh. Lame. Bring a little spice back into your romance with these five a-typical (but super fun!) date nights that are definite no-fails!
Get ready to ohm your way to a great date night by grabbing a local yoga class with your partner. Yes, you heard that right, we want you to sweat your way to the perfect date. Believe it or not, yoga dates are actually becoming very popular among couples, health-conscious or not, both for their intimacy, their physicality, and their cost-friendliness! And believe us, he will most definitely appreciate the view when you are doing the downward dog in front of him! Top this night off with a post-workout shower together and we think this might just rank right up there as one of your best dates ever.
Everyone loves a good karaoke bar with a big group of friends but why should this classic night out be limited to groups only? Grab your man and head out to your local pub on karaoke night. A little liquid courage and you and your man will be serenading each other like you are the only ones in the room. Don’t have the guts to go solo? Try some famous duets instead, like Sonny and Cher’s I Got You Babe, Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton’s Islands in the Stream or, if your man is REALLY devoted, ask him to cover Jennifer Warnes and Billy Medley’s (I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life from Dirty Dancing (and if he does¦marry him.)
Feeling like it’s your physical intimacy that is lacking the most from your more-than-lame date nights? Then we have the perfect evening for you. Check your inhibitions at the door and then grab your man, your laptop, and a pad of paper, and map out all of the sex stores within your city limits. Figure out a plan to hit as many of them as possible, with the aim to pick up one purchase from each for use that evening. You’ll be lucky if you make it past stop number three.
Believe it or not, there is something innately attractive about learning something new with your partner (maybe that is why all those awkward boys in homeroom always seemed so cute in highschool?) For a perfect date night learning experience, research local wine-tasting classes and sign you and your man up for a one-night or one-month course! Not in the mood for a post-date-night hangover? Try hitting up a Make-Your-Own shop where you and your beau can undertake the fun of making your own wine or brewing your own beer for later enjoyment!
Check out some websites for local volunteering and see if there are any food banks or soup kitchens in your area that allow for drop-in volunteers. Spending an hour or two of your time with those who are less fortunate will not only make the two of you more appreciative of all your have, it will likely also make that much more thankful for one another. You are likely to leave this date on such a feel-good high that you may just decide that helping out those in need is the perfect way to spend part of your date night every week!
