Due to the current pandemic that everyone is simultaneously experiencing around the world, with countries declaring lockdowns or community quarantine, it can’t be helped that you would eventually have to think about other ways to keep yourself occupied. This pandemic also takes a significant toll on couples since you have to think of ways to spice up your relationship and keep the romance going with your special someone despite the global situation. Luckily, we have compiled some quarantine-friendly date ideas that we are sure you will both enjoy doing.
1. Not A Typical Movie Night
To those couples who have spent most of their dates together at the movies, here is another quarantine date idea that you both will surely love. Thanks to modern-day technology, couples who are apart can enjoy their movie night using the Netflix Party extension, which allows you to synchronize video playback with an additional group chat feature. For those spending their quarantine days together, travel back in time, and recreate drive-in theaters. You can set-up a screen, power up that projector in your driveway, and still enjoy cuddling while watching the movie. Make sure you prepare pillows and blankets to make the experience more comfortable.
2. Paint Each Other
We have heard a lot of people saying that they have been exploring their artistic side ever since the quarantine started. If you are one of those people who have practiced mastering the arts, this is an excellent quarantine date for you and your partner, whether you’re apart or together. For those spending their quarantine days separately, you can send your partner the photo that you wish for them to draw or paint. You can start a video call on your phones and time yourselves. Couples living under one roof can also choose the other’s photo that they wish to paint. You can also post your finished artwork on social media and let the world decide who made the best masterpiece.
3. Forts And Camping Can Be For Adults
We can't deny how much we enjoyed making forts and indoor camps as kids. There is no better way to enjoy the quarantine life than to get in touch with your childhood memories with the use of sheets, boxes, pillows, and everything else around your house! Couples apart can still make forts separately and end up finishing the experience by adding in a virtual movie marathon or even an online board game. Partners living together can enjoy the full experience by playing card games or board games, or better yet, playing make-believe.
4. Let Your Relationship Workout. Literally.
One of the excuses people make as to why they don’t exercise is because they do not have the time or resources to hit the gym. However, being stuck at home with limited physical movement can make you bloat up! We are not in a position to tell you to add #BodyGoals to your #RelationshipGoals. However, couples who are stuck together or apart can always sign up for an online workout class or just search for some videos on YouTube. There is nothing better than being physically healthy and fit together. You can also end the workout date with a massage session.
5. Welcome to My TedTalk
Do you think we would leave "intellectual" couples out to wonder what they could do to enjoy their relationships during the quarantine season? Well, you thought wrong. A PowerPoint Presentation date night is a perfect date for lovers - together or apart - who are into exercising their brains! Maybe they're into sharing some conspiracy theories they saw online or have been waiting to try out some PowerPoint templates they found cute.
Don't let this quarantine season stop you and your loved ones from doing your weekly or monthly dates. If your anniversary is coming up, you most definitely have to try these ideas out. If you enjoyed this, don't forget to share it with your friends and family for more fun!
