There can come a time in many relationships when the well of ideas for a good date night has run dry. Hopefully, it’s because you’ve used up all your ideas on great dates and not that it’s been so long since your last date you don’t even know where to start! Either way, keep reading to find some great date night ideas for your special someone!
The importance of dating your spouse is well-documented and the dangers of not doing so can lead to stress in a relationship when you are not focussed on having fun together as you once did. That’s not to say all your dates have to be wine and roses. Most relationships start by simply having fun together.
Take a cooking class together. There is bound to be some opportunities to laugh together while you learn how to make the perfect scone. Some things in cooking don’t come easy, but having a good time together is not one of them. Learn how to make a new favourite dish and have a great time in the process.
Camp in your backyard. This doesn’t have to be something just the kids do! Make a fire, roast some marshmallows, and enjoy a nice glass of wine. The combination of getting away from distractions and simply spending time together is sure to produce great conversation and a memorable date night!
Tour a brewery. Support a local brewery and use that as the launching pad for a great date night. You can take home some great craft liquor after your visit, or you can use that as the beginning of the rest of your evening.
Enjoy a night at a show. Cold Lake’s own Grande Parlour is a great option for a romantic evening. With current events updated frequently, this is a perfect romantic getaway. It gives you a chance to dress up, be entertained, and enjoy a night out together.
Re-create your first date. Even if your first date wasn’t anywhere near where you live, you can probably find most of the components near you. Get as close to you can as the original, and walk down memory lane together. It gives you a unique chance to reminisce on how far you’ve come together.
If you haven’t been together that long, flip the conversation around and focus on where you want to be in 10 or 20 years. Share your dreams with each other and plan for your future together. You’ll find yourself returning to that date night conversation often in the years to come.
Most of the ideas offered involve lots of time open for conversation. Keeping the romance alive in a relationship is built on continuous communication. Finding things you can do in and around where you live is a bonus because you can go back to them again and again.
Still on the hunt for more ideas? The Grande Parlour has much to offer beyond theatre productions. There are workshops available where you can try your hand at stagecraft. Or maybe you just want to get out to a concert. These are all great options to explore as a couple, contact us today for more information!
