The Types of Dates You Should Do With Your Partner
The importance of going on dates can’t be over emphasized. Dates are highly important in a relationship as it gives you and your partner a chance to bond and nourish your relationship more.
However, dates don’t always have to be just dinner and movie. There are many fun ways to spend quality time with your spouse or your boyfriend/girlfriend, and here are some ideas worth trying.
1. A Date With the Family
If you’re still in dating stage, going on a date with your family means you get to spend time with the people you love and allow them to know your SO even more. When you go on a double date with your or your partner’s parents/brother/sister, you build a solid foundation for a stronger and more fulfilling relationship.
2. A Fancy Date
You may be together for years, but your relationship doesn’t have to mean complacency. One of the secrets to keep the fire burning after years of marriage is to make a first-date-like-effort and do something different once in a while. This reminds that you still care for each other and want to do something more special to prove it.
3. The Netflix-and-Chill Date
We don’t mean get frisky under the sheets (though you can), but instead enjoy your favourite movies in the comfort of your home. Rather than going out to catch a movie, stay in with your spouse, be in the comfort of your own pajamas and binge-watch your favourite series or movies. Don’t worry about not looking all cute and fancy; this is the best part of this type of date.
4. A Date With Friends
As much as it is essential to other aspects of your relationship, feeling comfortable to go out with each other’s friends is key to a happy relationship, too. This is the chance to know the people in your SO’s life and be able to have as much of a good time with your partner’s friends as you do with your own circle of friends.
5. An Unplanned Date
Not every date should be planned in advance. Just take a half-day from work and meet up with your beau. Don’t even think about what to do next. Let the thrill of spontaneity make this one of the most memorable and fun dates with your beloved. When you’re old and grey, you will surely have a fun story to tell your grand kids.
Which of these dates have you done with your SO? Which one is your favourite? Having these dates every once in a while with your partner will rekindle the fire and nurture your relationship even more.
