Spending time at home with the boo sometimes beats hanging out. And this is not just because of Netflix and chill.
It’s OK if you think ‘outdoor activities’ and ‘social gatherings’ when you hear the word ‘date.’ You’re not alone in that regard as many [rightly] associate dates with going out than staying at home.
Of course, there are loads of fun places to see if you indeed want to go out, but on some days when all you want to do is stay home with bae, you shouldn’t have to worry about being bored or not having much to do.
And as always, Pulse Relationships got you covered.
Here are homey date ideas you should definitely try soon.
1. Board games
Game nights don’t have to be for families. Classic games like Monopoly, Scrabble, and Twister can actually be really fun. Or, to add an adult twist, you can play a strip version of just about anything.
2. Ask each other questions
In one famous experiment, Psychologist Arthur Aron reportedly made couples fall in love by having them ask each other 36 questions, and giving answers while looking straight into each other’s eyes.
So maybe try that with your boo, too. Even if it’s not necessarily to make you fall in love [you already are] it still gives you an interesting thing to do with your time, and helps you know even more about your partner.
That can’t be a bad thing, right?
3. Have some kitchen fun
Grab a recipe that interests both of you, and try to prepare it together. Regardless of the result, y’all are sure to catch some fun while at it.
4. Light some candles
Spread a blanket, and dine on the floor while few candles glow around you. You could actually dress up to make it look fancy. Who says you can’t?
Turn on that music player, jam your favourite playlist, dance and have as much fun as you would at the club, except of course, you’ll be in your living room and it’s just two of you.
6. Video games
If there is a game console, it makes it even better.
Mind you, guys, make sure you only suggest something your girl will enjoy playing. [Guess that rules out FIFA 19, yeah?]
7. Netflix and Chill
Of course, Netflix and Chill has to be an option here. Spending time cuddled up on a couch or bed with your favourite movies/series is an all time classic and surely it remains such a pleasant way to spend romantic days or nights together with your partner.
