Catching the latest movie is all fine and dandy, but sitting in the dark with your attention on actors as opposed to your honey can get old really quickly. In the words of Luther Vandross, don’t “regret the fact you missed the chance for romance.” Aside from the movie theater, you should have other options in mind for date night to spice things up and rekindle the love. There are a plethora of date ideas you can choose from, so skim through and see what seems to be the most fun for you and your boo.

Spoken Word

Visit a local cafe featuring spoken word artists. Sip steamy coffee while listening to earthy poems. Preplan to rock the mic yourself by signing in with your stage name and reciting a love poem to your love.


Salsa Dance Lessons

Sign up for salsa dancing. By learning something new, it will give your lover bonus points for putting forth the effort. Sway your feet and hips together in rhythmic unison.

Boogie Skating

Dust off your roller skates and find a roller rink nearest you. Strap up the laces and hit the floor along with your man. It’s a perfect time to hold hands and skate together. If one of you takes a stumble, make sure there’s no real injury before letting loose a string of giggles.

Midnight Bowling

Most bowling alleys have midnight bowling, where hip hop music blasts and lights dance against the dim backdrop. Create crazy team names and trash talk with your guy in a good-natured competition.

Laser Tag

Get your big kid on by going to laser tag, where you are outfitted in a vest and given a laser gun. Creep around the many passageways, shooting at folk and dodging laser bullets. Try to find your man and make his vest light up with lazer shots. Get him before he gets you!


Go on a treasure hunt using a hand-held GPS. People publish the map of their treasure online and you seek it out. It’s hide and go seek at its finest.


Giving your time on a Saturday morning is commendable. Together, the two of you can help the needy or seniors by heaping on piles of  breakfast foods onto foam trays with an ice-cream scoop.


Visit a campground site with tent, sleeping bags, and food in tow. At the campfire, roast marshmallows, make smores, and tell ghost stories as you listen to the lulling crackle of the fire.

Wine Tasting

Visit a winery and pick from several different wines. Sit at the bar area and enjoy each bittersweet sip while chatting with your beau.

Indoor Rock Climbing

Harness up and watch as your mate scales the wall, calling out words of support. This keeps the date on a positive note.

Fruit Orchard

Visit a farm or orchard in the summer months to pick strawberries. Feed one to your boo. Collect as many as you can and bring them home. Next, make chocolate covered strawberries and enjoy then with your mate.

Road Trip

Take a Saturday morning to hop in the car and just ride. Play soothing R&B music and enjoy each others company as you head to the closest city. Be spontaneous – pick a restaurant once you get there and afterwards walk around and visit boutiques.

Local Festival

Walk around at the local festival, munching on succulent bar-b-que and checking out all the vendors have to offer. Enjoy the vibe – jamming music, aroma of food and beautiful sights.

Ice Cream

Frequent your local ice cream parlor and sample different flavors until you settle upon your favorite. Share a spoonful or two of your cookie dough with your honey as you take a stroll outside.

Board Games

Whip out your favorite board games for indoor game night. Make the stakes high – loser has to make a romantic dinner.
