Because pretty much every form of entertainment is now virtual, people now have lots of date options that don’t involve the couch. While there is always a time and place for Netflix, here are a few more things you and your significant other can do as a couple and that don’t involve your TV.
Take a Love Language Test and Compare Results
This is an easy Internet test that tells you how you prefer to receive and give love. It also gives the couple who plays the game the same type of high they would get from a choose their adventure show.
Couple’s Birth Charts
Spend more time Googling what exactly your rising, sun sign, and moon means. Then, see how compatible you are with each other. It’s something that’s already mentioned in the Goop Lab, anyways.
Play a Little Spotify Game
This gives couples the ability to play their favorite songs and listen to them together. Go back and forth with different songs until you learn something about the person you wouldn’t have learned from watching a Netflix TV show.
Film a TikTok Video
Just an idea for a fun TikTok video: the couple plays “rock, paper, scissors” to determine who will pick where to go for drinks, then an appetizer, then dinner, and finally dessert. Because we are on a lockdown, this will count as take-out food only.
DIY Furniture Assembly
Whether it’s something a couple has to hang up or finally putting the IKEA table, working together on such tasks can be perfect for improving communication skills. This “date” works if you just want your significant other to help you with something.
Explore a Neighborhood
Find some odd local shop or a place you have never been to. If your neighborhood is not that big or exciting, you can pick a place off the distance and drive to it. It’s like clicking on the “Play Something” button on Netflix, without looking at the synopsis or rating first. Remember to put your mask on first. Always.
Read to Each Other
Books are just like TV shows that have no pictures or subtitle the whole time. If you are looking to do something as passive as binge-watching, you can get the book on tape and let someone else do the reading for you.
Engage in More Intimate Behavior
It’s the thing everyone does when they are not drooling over Bridgerton or any other TV show.
