Date night losing it’s luster? Dating is not just for brand-new couples. It’s an essential part of maintaining a long and healthy relationship.
That said, after a few months or years, it can be hard to come up with new ways to spend that all important one on one time together.
Ready to take date night to the next level?
Here are five fantastically fun and unique date night ideas to help make sure your next big night out is one for the books.
1. Take a Ghost Tour
Whether you’re new in town or have lived there all your life, ghost tours are a fantastic way to get outside and see your city in a new (and slightly darker!) light.
A ghost tour will provide you plenty of time to chat and reconnect under the city lights. All while giving you a glimpse into the more morbid parts of your town’s horrible history.
2. Throw a Few Axes
It’s the latest (and sharpest) sensation that’s sweeping the nation.
If you’re looking for a way out of your comfort zone, nothing compares to chucking a few axes. Ax throwing centers are a bit like driving ranges, but with a bit more of an edge.
Once there, an instructor will walk you through the proper ax throwing technique, and the rest is up to you.
3. Escape Together
They say you should never settle down with someone until you’ve traveled together. Well, if you want to see how your significant other reacts to high-pressure situations, then an escape room may be the perfect date for you.
An escape room will force you and your partner to work together to solve a series of puzzles to win back your freedom. While that may sound stressful, it’s a ton of fun!
4. Go to a Film Festival
Movies don’t make for the best dates.
Date night should give you and your partner a chance to reconnect with each other. And, sitting through the summer’s hottest two and a half-hour blockbuster won’t give you a lot of talking time.
That said, a film festival is a bit different than your regular movie night.
Films by smaller productions and filmmakers, like Peter Spann Filmmaker, tend to be a bit shorter and more unique than the latest must-see hit.
And, by attending a festival, you can stretch your date into an all-day affair. Which, will give you and your partner plenty of time to talk and bond over a few buckets of popcorn.
5. The Classic Pub Crawl
Why head down to your usual watering hole, when you can hop around town to several new and exciting bars to sample several tasty new favorite brews?
While trying out new bars and clubs and drinks is fun, one of the best parts of a pub crawl is the travel time.
By attending a pub crawl, you and your date will get plenty of time to stroll beneath the city lights. And, that is a fantastic way to get in some all-important conversation time.
