5. Board Games
- These games are more fun when played by your own “house” rules
- Take them to a favorite outdoor spot to enjoy a beautiful day/evening
- If you’re the betting sort, wager on who will win and pick some fun/racy “winnings”
- Board games are better than video games from time to time for face to face interaction, and the fun conversations they can spark!
4. Book Club (For 2 Or More)
- Read books over a week or a month, then get together to discuss them over a homemade meal
- Get together with another couple and expand the club– adult conversation with others can be a major treat after long days
- Choose books in turns, but unless you both dig them stay away from classic chick or dude books. No strictly romance or sports novels UNLESS you both agree ahead of time. You should both enjoy what you’re reading.
3. Hiking (or a stroll)
- This is a great opportunity to talk about something other than everyday life
- Also great for sightseeing if you have a local park or other places with trails you can use
- Be sure to keep each other’s skill level and health in mind
- Use a smartphone or camera to get new candid pictures together
- Scenery pics are fun to take together too
2. Dollar Store Scavenger Hunt
- Set a reasonable spending limit
- Don’t make your list super specific
- Setting a time limit can make this even more fun
- Comparing items can be quite funny—even insightful into how you both interpret things!
- This is fun to follow with a cheap dinner out—fast food, maybe?
1. Matinee and A PicNic
- The afternoon showings are often much more affordable—and can be less crowded. Make out time, anyone?
- Making a picnic for before the show can be a lot of fun to do together.
- Try going for a coffee or inexpensive beverage after the movie to talk about what you liked or didn’t about what you just watched
- You can save this one for school breaks if you have children and help a neighbor teen out by getting them to babysit for a couple hours—total win-win!
A Few More Tips
1.Date Nights can be at any time of day
2.Keep things fun
3.Try not to talk about the bills, the kids, etc.
4.Spending time with other friends, especially couples, is a good idea from time to time
5.Schedule this time just like a doctor’s appointment. It’s just as important—it will help keep your relationship healthy!
6.Make time to say “I Love You” Every day… or at least show it.
