8 Romantic At-Home Date Ideas For Quarantined Couples
Every relationship expert will tell you that reigniting your love is the single most crucial aspect of maintaining that spark in your relationship. Creating time regularly to revive and rejuvenate your passion reminds you of why you fell in love in the first place.
Although most couples see sense in this, executing a said plan is where things start crumbling. Whether you've got kids to worry about or you are super busy to spend quality time with your partner, there will always be something that needs your attention.
If you are serious about maintaining that spark in your relationship and can't quite manage to go out, then an in-house date night is what will fix that.
The thing with stay-at-home date nights is that they don't require a lot of time or money to make them effective. All you need is a few creative ideas, the right attitude, and you'll be rekindling your love in no time.
With that in mind, here are eight delightful and easy to plan in-house date ideas that you and your better half will love.
Play a card/ board game
Board and card games never get old when it comes to in-house date nights—having a set of different games to play can make date nights even more exciting. But if you want to get that adrenaline rush, you need to throw in some competitiveness like looser takes out the trash for a month or gets to clean the dishes.
If you don't have an idea about which board games to play, you could always go with droughts, snakes and ladders, chess, roll and move, or the occasional poker; that's if you and your partner both know how to play these games.
Do a Q and A
If you feel like you don't know your partner well enough, a Q and A date night is the perfect opportunity to ask those bugging questions. If you don't know where to start, search the internet for questions to ask your partner, and you'll get tonnes of suggestions. Moreover, don't just settle on couple-focused questions; choose the ones that present fun conversations starters for both of you.
Complete a Puzzle Together
Although most people underestimate a great puzzle's power, puzzles are an excellent and cozy way to relax and have those meaningful conversations. Furthermore, puzzles are full options; you could choose images of your next vacation, future goals, or anything you can think of.
Although some people prefer setting a timer, this doesn't have to be the case. Don't rush it; take your time but make sure you choose a puzzle that's about 200-300 pieces to ensure you finish it within a night.
Having a Karaoke night is one of those things that most couples enjoy doing. Singing in front of large crowds can be daunting, but you only have your partner to impress in this case. You can find Karaoke renditions of songs on YouTube and blow your partner away with your singing prowess. Although unnecessary, disco lights and wireless mics go a long way in setting up that concert mood.
Learn Your Love Language
Do you know what a love language is? Well, you should because love languages are a game-changer when it comes to 'speaking' to your partner in a language they understand. We won't go into details about what love languages are, but we'll tell you that there are five of them, and one of them best defines you.
Play Video Games
There are two things you should look out for before choosing that video game for date night: enjoying the game together and understanding team games and competitive games. Although both competitive games (you play against each other) and team games (compete against other teams) offer the same adrenaline kick, things can get heated quickly. Just makes sure both of you are enjoying the game and know when things are about to blow up.
Go Through Your Photo Album
Going through your photo album, hard copies or otherwise, will help you reminisce about all those beautiful moments you had together. Photos are known to be great conversation starters. To make it even more interesting, ask your partner about the dates the pictures were taken, the thing they remember most, and if they'd like to do it again.
Dance To Your Favorite Romance Songs
You don't need a fancy party or a dance hall to dance with your better half. Have your own romantic playlist, and have a romantic dance session. You can try different dance genres and other dance styles to avoid getting bored. We also recommend having a glass of wine before the dance to help set the mood.
Couples who value their union and want to keep their relationships alive always have a date night planned. It doesn't have to be complicated; neither does it have to be expensive; just choose something you'll both enjoy and take the night away.
