Dates You Probably Haven’t Been On: Thinking Outside the Box

Are you running out of date ideas with your SO? That’s okay; we have you covered. Here you’ll find some inspiration for fun, outside-the-box date activities.

Be a Tourist in Your Town for a Day

It’s common to take for granted what’s right in front of you, leading you never to experience the things your city or town is known for – including local art museums, historic landmarks, sightseeing tours, and more. So, grab your sweetheart and act like a tourist. You may discover something new about your city you never knew existed!

Play Hide-and-Seek

Just a kids’ game? We don’t think so. Hide-and-seek can be played at any age. The best part is that you can make it flirty and fun. Offer something up for the winner, maybe their choice of movie or treating them to a night on the town. It’ll amaze you how much enjoyment you can get from this little throwback game.

Read a Romance Novel Together Aloud

Think: hot, steamy, thrilling, and sexy. A romance novel can open you and your significant other up to new levels of intimacy. The simplicity of reading the words of a romance novel aloud will amaze you. So many conversation topics can arise. Let yourself be surprised and entertained.

Go on a Dollar Date

You will need more than a single dollar, but the idea of a dollar date is that the date itself will not be expensive. Select a fast food restaurant, hit the drive-through, and order the entire dollar menu – just one of each item. Then head to your local dollar store and pick out some things to bring home. If it’s a movie night, try a dollar DVD and some popcorn. If you’d rather play games, grab a deck of cards. Just make sure everything costs a dollar; that’s the only rule. Be sure to get creative!

Try Swapping Houses With a Friend or Via a Home Swap Program

Swapping houses gives you and your partner new surroundings in which you can learn and have fun. Think of it as an Airbnb but with an exchange of homes. House swapping can be between friends – or strangers via a secure online platform. In some cases, you can travel to different states or countries!
