Variety adds spice to any relationship. If you’re noticing that you and your significant other have been doing the same activities over and over, your relationship can get predictable and stale. Yes, routine is inescapable, and any relationship can be strengthened by the couples’ familiarity with each other and by doing certain activities. But it can suffer due to predictability, too. Over time, this can add unnecessary strain to the relationship and impact it negatively.
Here Are A few Date Plans
You can start small. There’s no need to do grand activities right away. Here are some date ideas that you and your significant other can try out this weekend.
1. Get a couples massage
Although a massage is mostly thought of as bonding time for the ladies, a good massage can be a great bonding time for couples, too. A massage eases muscle tension and stress. It lessens anxiety and promotes overall relaxation, as well. You and your partner will surely have a great weekend after at least an hours’ worth of relaxation and tranquillity through a massage. There are many varieties of massages you can try, and some massage centers even offer the use of Jacuzzi baths and other amenities.
2. Book a hotel room or accommodation nearby
Especially for married couples or those who are living together, it’s nice to stay out even for a day or two, not worrying about cleaning or laundry. A new environment can also give you and your loved one a break from the monotony of living in the same space for a long time. Staying in a hotel is convenient because you are provided with different amenities and services. But staying in a unique accommodation or rental can also be good, especially if it’s a good, unfamiliar neighbourhood worth exploring.
3. Visit a different restaurant
Be it French, Mediterranean, Asian, or any restaurant you’ve never tried before, a new restaurant is worth visiting. Dress up for fine dining and order unfamiliar food and drinks. Or visit a low-key hole-in-the-wall place you’ve never tried before. Share your comments to your partner be they bad or good. Laugh together because of the silliness of the situation or be amazed after discovering your knack for ordering hard-to-pronounce cuisines.
4. Go on a wine tasting night
There’s no need to shell out lots of money for this activity. Be on the lookout for wine tasting packages, or even day tours, if there are any. You might discover a connoisseur in you or your partner.
5. Try ballroom dancing
This can be daunting, especially for young couples who are really not into dancing. Don’t get intimidated and think that this activity is only for the old ones. Ballroom dancing is not only a cardio activity that can help you burn calories, but it’s also an enjoyable activity that helps you bond with your partner, as it promotes teamwork.
Waltz, foxtrot, cha-cha, tango, salsa, paso doble, and many others, are worth trying. Surely, you’ll enjoy the sensual dances especially after seeing your partner into the rhythm.
