For couples in quarantine, here are 13 simple stay-at-home date ideas.

Picnic

Going on a picnic date is significantly more adventurous and thrilling than sitting at home watching Netflix if the weather permits. Spending time with your partner outside adds a new depth to your connection.

Camping

Better still, stay out for a few days and explore nature’s beauties. Nothing beats spending a whole night with your love; no phone calls, no interruptions… just you and your lover cuddling while listening to the untamed sounds of nature.

Trivia Night

If going out for dinner has become more dull than counting to 100 backwards in your relationship, you can spice things up by attending one of the many Trivia Nights provided by most restaurants.

Unless you try it out, you’ll never know how good (or horrible) you are at it. In addition, a little healthy competition in a relationship is beneficial.

Is it normal to get bored in a relationship?

It’s not uncommon for relationships to become monotonous at times. It could be a sign that you need to work on reinvigorating your relationship, but it could also be a sign of something more serious.

The key to dealing with it is to establish a communication channel with your partner. Be open and honest with yourself about how you’re feeling. Once you and your partner have a clear understanding of what is going on, you may either work together to solve the situation or discuss other choices, such as couples counseling or possibly breaking up.

Finally, keep in mind that partnerships aren’t always easy. They require effort, even when it comes to maintaining the spark. There is no one-size-fits-all solution that will work for every relationship. You can, however, work together to get your relationship back on the proper (and more exciting and rewarding) track if you are both prepared to put in the time and effort.

What are fun date ideas?

Let’s face it: coming up with a date idea that’s as entertaining and unique as your relationship can be just as difficult as finding someone to date. Whether you’re driving to work or walking 20 steps from your bed to your desk and back, most of us don’t have much creative energy left at the end of the day. You can only take so many dinner-and-a-movie nights, and if you’re anything like me, your couch is shaped like you from all of the great time you’ve spent together. When children are involved, the situation becomes even more complicated.

If you’re very lucky, you have someone who cares about you and wants to spend time with you, even if it means staring at a screen for the millionth time. But it doesn’t have to be that way! We came up with a plethora of options because we love love, in case you’d prefer to give the sofa some alone time. There’s something for every couple’s personality, activity preference, level of DIY ability, and budget with all of these ideas. We’ve got enough options to keep you busy for a few years. Here’s a list of some of our favorite cute date ideas to get you off the sofa and into a fun activity with your partner.

  • Try out a new eatery. If you’ve memorized the menu at your favorite restaurant, try something new. Pretend you’re restaurant critics, and pick apart the cuisine instead of your partner.
  • In your hometown, pretend to be a tourist. When was the last time you took advantage of the sights that everyone wants to see when they come to town? That was probably the last time you had out-of-town visitors. Spend an afternoon or evening visiting local landmarks or must-see sights as if you were seeing them for the first time.
  • Make a new recipe that you’ll enjoy. Even if you’re not a great cook, attempting a new dish may be a lot of fun. Not to mention the fact that you get to consume the end result.
  • Take a picnic. If the weather is nice, there’s nothing more romantic than bringing some al fresco food and drinks, spreading them out on a blanket, and taking in the scenery. If the weather is bad outside, host the party in your living room.
  • Take a walk. Exploring outdoors with your significant other gets the heart pumping in unexpected ways, if you know what we mean.
  • Take a trip to the beach. Sun, sand, waves, and a lot of exposed skin Make a better afternoon for yourself. We challenge you to do so.
  • Take a ski trip. Is it too cold to go to the beach? Instead, hit the slopes. It didn’t count if you didn’t have hot cocoa afterwards.
  • Play a board game with your friends. For a healthy dose of competition, bring out the old favorites or try something new. Make a friendly wager to add a little spice to the proceedings.
  • Organize a casino night. If they nickname you Lady Luck, check if your lover can win your heart by rolling snake eyes. That, or play cards with the chore list for the week hanging in the balance.
  • Make a fire in the campfire. Gather around a bonfire in your backyard to fan the flames of desire in a Smoky-approved fashion. If your municipality prohibits flames, gather around the fireplace or cook s’mores in the microwave.
  • Make a spa night out of it. For a DIY pampering session that will strengthen both your bond and your skin, head to the drugstore for face masks, mani-pedi materials, and massage oil.
  • Make a day trip out of it. Get in your automobile and see how far a single tank of gas will take you. Even a trip to the next town over might feel like an adventure, especially when you’re with your best friend.
  • Together, go grocery shopping. Do you require eggs and bread? Make a mundane task into a delightful pair activity. Split your list in half and compete to see who can finish it first, or simply stroll the aisles together.
  • Pick up a new skill. To try anything new, you don’t need a lot of expensive equipment. Try your hand at origami, sketching, or even card tricks. At first, you’ll have a blast giggling about how horrible you’re both.
  • Examine ancient photographs. Get the CDs out and prepare for an awwww-fest. To learn something new about your sweetie and grow to love them even more, share memories from your childhoods and awkward adolescent years.
  • Go on an antiques quest. You’d be surprised what kind of treasures you can find in an antique store, let alone the spooky AF knickknacks you’ll come across.
  • Consider enrolling in a dance class. Taking a dance class may be a fun date even (or especially!) if you have two left feet. When you break a move at the next wedding or party, you’ll be the talk of the dance floor.
  • Volunteering should be done in groups. Sign up to volunteer at a soup kitchen, a clothes drive, or another local project to help others and see how hot your honey looks while doing so.
  • Pay a visit to a zoo or an aquarium. Even fish are cute, right? Squee over some new fuzzy or finned companions to show your sensitive side.
  • Read romantic novels to each other. Take turns reading to each other from a spicy novel from the library or a secondhand book store. Before you can say “once upon a time,” you’ll be in the mood.
  • Arrange a scavenger hunt for your group. If you make one that recreates your first date and includes all of your favorite sites, you’ll get bonus points.

How can u make ur bf happy?

If you just learned about love from movies and television, you’d assume it was all about males making swoony confessions like Lloyd Dobler with his boom box or Andrew Lincoln with those cue cards in Love Actually.

Knowing a person’s face, learning how their eyes shine when they’re joyful, how they prefer to be caressed when they’re sad, happy, or turned on, and how to navigate through disagreement together are all examples of love in real life.

Use these easy techniques to “lock-in” a man’s commitment to you, and to make him love you FOREVER!

James M. Sama compiled an entertaining list for men on the tiny things that make women happy and how to make them happy. I believe the same is true for men. And whether you’re married or just starting out, if you have a decent man to adore, he deserves to feel the same way.

Compliment him.

Where did we obtain the idea that only women want to be told they’re pretty, smell nice, are smart, or sexy?

I’ve always assumed that men are more confident in their appearance and sex appeal than women. Guys are supposed to be unconcerned about what they wear or whether or not their new haircut looks good, right?

That’s a load of nonsense! I’ve never encountered a man who didn’t give a damn if the woman he loved found him attractive. So tell him when you see him and get that tickle of oh my my, you’re so hot.

It’s simple: whenever anything positive comes to mind, tell him. Tell him his old beat-up tee shirt makes him look gorgeous. When you hug him, tell him how much you enjoy smelling his neck.

Tell him you appreciate what he does for you and your family.

If your partner works outside the home, express your gratitude for his efforts. Even if he enjoys his job, I’m sure there are days when he fantasizes about quitting, cursing at his employer, or simply hiding in his office all day. He, on the other hand, does not do it. You and your family could be a part of the problem.

Winning money is a huge burden for everyone, but society emphasizes it more more for men. Unfortunately, their monetary potential is frequently linked to their social worth. As bad as it is, it’s made worse when we don’t understand the stress guys are under and the effort they put in.

Your partner is sacrificing for your family if he works at home with the kids. As much as he presumably enjoys being a stay-at-home parent, every parent has moments when they want to throw in the towel (or diaper), rage at the boss (the baby? ), or hide in a corner. They don’t, however! They’re in there all day, elbow-deep in something disgusting and caring for the kids.

It’s simple: tell him you understand how difficult his job is. Tell him how much you appreciate it and how much you admire his dedication. It’s not about the money, whether it’s yours or his; it’s about recognizing something that most people take for granted.

Make time for things to get hot in the bedroom.

No, he’s not a sex god, but the best sex is transcendent, reciprocal, linked, passionate, and dreamy, so make sex sacred and intense for both of you. Making him feel like your personal sex god, and him reciprocating, will almost certainly make both of your lives better.

Nobody owes their spouse sex, but in a healthy relationship, developing desire is a good thing. If you’re having trouble getting into sex-god or goddess mode at home, consider spending the night in a hotel room. If that’s not an option, a tent in the woods can be just as enjoyable. If that works for you, you can talk about dreams or look at sensual photographs together at home, such as the diverse selection in Dr. Timaree’s NSFW library.

Alternatively, you may shoot some boudoir shots of yourself. Don’t want to expose your entire body or go too racy? Close-ups of a sexy but not-so-obvious body part are a good idea. The top of your undies poking out from your jeans at the hip, your bra strap on your shoulder. There are numerous sources of inspiration available.

It’s simple: feed your passion for him. Choose to fantasize about him, about a time when you were together, or about your favorite feature of his body. Then heap all of your desire on him the next time you have a chance to be alone with him.

Be supportive of his alone time.

To be honest, this was the most difficult for me. I’m not sure why, but I used to resent how much time Ivan spent surfing or riding his mountain bike when we first started dating. We were both working, we didn’t see each other very much, and I felt as if I had been forgotten.

That was an unfair amount of strain to place on my husband. We gradually figured out how to organize our alone time, and I took advantage of his willingness to accommodate my need to exercise, write, or simply read in bed.

Unless he’s so engrossed in his alone time that you’ve vanished off his radar, your independence is a good thing! If you’re concerned about how long he’ll be gone, simply schedule a time for him to return and make arrangements with him for later. Being apart can give you more things to talk about, and if he uses his alone time for exercise or meditation, he’ll likely be happier and healthier as a result.

It’s simple: smile when he says he’s out to do activities on his own that make him happy. Kiss him on the cheek. He’ll have a sense of being seen, heard, and supported.

Put down your phone.

On this, I’m just as culpable as everyone else. There’s always that one more email, that one more text from a pal, that one more work emergency. However, you must put your phone down and look at the individual in front of you.

When I find myself engaged in this cycle, I try to take a big breath and imagine the worst-case scenario of ignoring whatever is buzzing at me. He understands if it’s a serious emergency, but most things can wait.

When I put down my phone, I frequently notice him and take a good look at his face. I see the man I adore, the man I met so long ago, and I say to myself, “How ridiculous is it that I’m not engaging with him?”

Make a pact with your partner: if you need to use the phone for something essential, tell the other in a few words what it is. “The server is down,” or “The sitter is calling,” are both valid reasons to take a break, but inform him of your plans and when you’ll be back.

It’s simple: be present while you’re with the person you care about. Try not to lose track of time while staring at a computer screen.

When you get something for yourself, get something for him, too.

I’ll admit that I stole this idea from James Sama, but it’s sound advice that’s also simple to implement!

Getting a cup of coffee? Take one for him! Do you want to make a cup of tea? Make one for him as well.

I learned a long time ago that whenever I ever go to a surf shop, I always bring Ivan a present. I’m generally there for the kids, but I always grab a tee shirt or a cap for my husband, or even just a fresh lip balm or tube of sunscreen.

It isn’t about the amount of money spent; it is about the fact that I am telling him, “I know you like surf stores, so when I was there, I thought of you.”

It’s simple: saying, “It only takes a second,” is all it takes “Is it possible for me to get you one?” The effect continues indefinitely.

Look him in the eyes.

You don’t have to look longingly at each other as you used to at the roller rink with your 9th grade lover. Just take a moment to gaze each other in the eyes and share a look.

You wouldn’t think a soul-gazing connection would be on a guy’s list of wonderful things if you went by stereotypes, but I defy you to try it. With a smile or a fun expression, look him in the eyes and hold his gaze for three seconds. It’s a flirting tactic that works well for singles since it makes the other person feel as if they’re the only one in the room. He may now be your boyfriend or husband, but he deserves to be treated with respect.

Giving your partner a million wonderful little moments with you is one essential to a long-lasting relationship, and he should do the same in return. After all, research suggest that how much compassion exists between the couples appears to be a key factor in a happy marriage.

Even though I attempted to make it sound easy, some of these tasks are not always simple. They sometimes force us to be vulnerable in ways we aren’t accustomed to. I understand; I’ve been there, and occasionally I still am. But I believe it is worthwhile to give it a try.

Also, inquire about his list of small pleasures – I’m sure you’re already doing many of them.

How can I entertain my boyfriend?

Tell him you’ll meet him at a park or the beach for a walk (particularly if he’s had a difficult day).

Tell him to sit on the floor in front of the sofa and give him an impromptu massage while you’re watching TV together.

Be the one to offer that you get out with his pals who he knows you despise. It’ll brighten his day.

Send him a text to let him know you miss him if you’ve been incredibly busy and it’s been difficult to find time together. Guys will never acknowledge how much they desire such texts.

Even if you have to lie a little, compliment him on something you know he’s been working hard on (e.g. going to the gym a lot, building a bookshelf, a work project).

Make him take a twenty-minute shower break with you if he’s stressed or has a lot of work to do at home that night.

Find a free or inexpensive used DVD of that old movie he constantly says he can’t believe you haven’t watched (typically Blade Runner, Speed, or* RoboCop*).

Plan a movie marathon at a cinema on the next hot Saturday, with some movies you want to see and some movies he wants to see. (This isn’t free, but it’s a low-cost option to stay cool.)

Tell him how badly you want to play hooky from work, go home, and watch an entire season of Breaking Bad in bed with him when you’re both worried and gchatting.

Before he departs for work, slip a letter into his back pocket, just wishing him a good day.

Send him an unexpected text telling him you want him to drop everything and come seduce you. (Yes, there is a common thread running through this list.)

Take a picture and post it on Facebook the next time he surprises you with a candlelight supper at home or something similar. He’ll act as though he’s irritated by it, but he really isn’t.

How can I show love to my boyfriend?

Make a concerted effort to spend quality time with your partner. This is a fantastic method to show your significant other how much you care. You should do it even if it means squeezing time out of your busy schedule. Give him your time; it’s a tiny but meaningful gesture that demonstrates your concern. Meet up with him on your lunch breaks, pay him a visit at his employment, or even commute home together – all of these activities may be incorporated into your regular routine. You should figure out what works best for both of you and then hang together whenever you have the opportunity.
