Nothing is more damaging to an otherwise healthy and joyful relationship that a level of dullness that risks having you slowly drift apart from each other. Break the habitual date nights chain by doing something different. Need some inexpensive ideas? No need to ask – just check one of these Top 10 Date Night Ideas for Married Couples.
#1 Take a Bike for a Stroll
You don’t need to actually own a bike, given the fact that there are plenty of places that rent them at accessible prices. Once the sun starts setting, take your significant other by the hand and venture into the city. Start exploring it at night. Who doesn’t love the way cities look at night?
#2 Cozy Up by the Fire
Whether it’s indoors or outdoors, a nice crackling fire is always a good way to rid yourselves of the stress and soreness succeeding a long day of work and chores. Make use of your fireplace if you’re lucky enough to own one. Alternatively, for a more interesting experience, set up a fire outside and waste the night away stargazing and lying on the grass. It’s free and it’s unique. Just make sure to pay extra attention to fire control and safety.
#3 Dinner in the Sky
If your heart is vintage and fond of classic restaurant dates, you can still ask your beloved out for a dinner at candlelight. The twist here is that you can spice things up by heading for an unconventional type of restaurant. One of the options is one which is suspended tens of feet in the air.
#4 Dinner in the Dark
Since we’re on the topic of interesting dinner experiences, several cities around the world foster a restaurant that organizes dates in the dark – literally. Guests are first invited to a well-lit bar where they can get ready then they head into a room filled by complete obscurity.
#5 Marathon the Night Away
Assuming there aren’t any responsibilities that you must tend to the following day, you can prep up for an all-nighter spent watching movies or TV. The little change in this case is that you should sign up for a marathon. Binge all of the Harry Potter movies or go through a whole season of a TV show. Stock up on the popcorn, sodas, sweets, and any other things you might want.
#6 Ghost Hunt
If you’re the adventurous types, then you can always try to step into the world of paranormal and sign up for an organized ghost hunt. We say “organized” because we hardly recommend venturing all by yourselves in random abandoned buildings.
#7 Cook or Bake Together
Home dates that involve one partner cooking for another are romantic and all, but have you tried making the meal together? Cooking is always a fun activity when done with someone you love and when you have generally low expectations of the result.
#8 Games Night Out
Leave your house and head for the nearest bar or pub with a pool table. Likewise, bowling is also a great idea for a date. These are fun and easy sports that can ignite your competitive sides or, alternatively, bring you closer as you compete against other couples.
#9 Go Down Memory Lane
This means a variety of things. You can dust off an old photo album or you can go through old image folders on the computer. Remember the past and reminiscence the times you’ve spent together. Also, you can offer each other input on your separate pasts and childhoods. It’s a good way to rediscover each other.
#10 Have a Laugh
Laughing is the cure to sadness. Cozy up on your bed, pull the laptop in front of you, and spend an evening of entertainment watching hilarious YouTube videos, comedy movies, or comedy shows. By the end of the session, you’ll be in a much better mood and you’ll feel freshened and just a tiny bit happier.
