Activities for dating couples
And, at the end of the post we have a printable planning sheet you can use to choose and mark off date nights as you finish them – sort’ve like a bucket list of dates!Whether you live near a lake or an ocean or near cornfields or mountains you can find a beautiful place to see the sunrise or sunset!
We usually end up eating it with our family instead of alone (meal times are always exciting around here) but the other activities end up being fun for us, and can totally count as date time!
Since the daylight lasts longer in the summer, this is an easy and (almost) free activity.
All you need is a pup tent, a few dinner and breakfast choices, and your sleeping bags.
Build a fire, take s’mores supplies along, and laugh together as you sit by the fire.
Ask around, you might be surprised by what you can find.
We’ve had a few overnight hotel stays because I have had multiple surgeries in distant cities where I had to be there at 4 am.We *usually* just go out to dinner or maybe a movie, but it is so nice to change things up and find fun and interesting things to do that are not our ordinary.Changing things up a bit makes date night even more special and keeps it from getting mundane.Finding little diners where we can grab breakfast, a specialty shop that offers sipping chocolate, and browsing through antique shops are some our favorite things to do.We love to stroll through town, peek in the windows, and just have fun together as we talk and shop. Are you finishing a basement, painting walls, or decorating a bathroom?Though this kind of thing can be challenging in a relationship, you can also have fun.My husband and I once enjoyed an entire weekend of painting and cleaning a home we needed to sell. Working together to accomplish a goal is an amazing thing, and I believe if you work hard and practice patience then you will grow closer together as you work.My husband and I have been purposing to have a weekly date night for a couple of years now – since our oldest kids got old enough to babysit and needed a way to earn their phones.We are intentional about getting away from the kids and just spending time as a couple.Take a drive into the mountains (we are not too far from the Blue Ridge Parkway here), travel along the beach and marvel at the ocean, or find some beautiful farm country to admire.This gives you plenty of time to chat, laugh together, or even have a serious conversation, if necessary. We found our beautiful farm table at this location, and it is almost time to find the perfect setup for our in-planning-stage coffee bar. Sometimes I ask my husband to meet me somewhere for lunch.
