Stuck inside with your boo, here are my At Home Date Night Ideas for Social Distancing. Sick of binging on mediocre reality TV? We are too. We came up with 12 quarantine dates to help you mix it up!
Who doesn’t love an excuse to drink mimosas and eat pancakes? Add some lemon zest to your batter or a garnish to your drink for a little something fancy.
Your inner child will thank you, and you’ll end up with a cozy spot for cuddling. Just maybe move the fragile decor out of the way.
If you don’t have a guest room, do it in your bedroom. The idea is to change up the environment to get you out of the same old conversations. “How was your day? Oh right, I was there the whole time.” Nope. Put on “La Vie en Rose.” Light a candle. Live the French fantasy.
The Modern Love column of the New York Times published 36 questions designed to inspire love. Watch out! Some of these questions are funny; some are heavy; all are lovely ways of deepening your bond with your boo.
Whether or not you believe in the science behind the Enneagram or the magic behind
the zodiac (I’m looking at you, 6), you’ll enjoy telling each other about yourselves. Playful arguments guaranteed to ensue.
You know that pile of magazines you’ve been meaning to recycle? Turn them into your visions of your hopes and dreams! Just have a pack of colored pencils? No problem. Come up with symbols or images to represent all that you want to manifest in your life. When you’re done, compare with your partner!
Saying “Draw me like one of your French girls” highly encouraged. If you’re not an artist, all the more fun. The point is to play and make eyes at each other, not to come out of this with a masterpiece.
An excuse to dress up and get cute for the camera while someone else worries about the posing and actually clicking the camera! FaceTime photoshoots are proof of what endures when the world is upside down – love. Check out the facetime photoshoot blog post here -> Facetime Photoshoots
What have you learned about each other? What do you still love despite seeing only each other for a month? Put it on paper, seal it, and deliver it to your boo when this is all over. It’ll be a sweet keepsake of what you’ve gotten through together.
Everyone is a dancer these days. Why not you too? Keep it simple or get ambitious! Either way you’ll get your heart rate up.
Relive old favorites (hello, OutKast and No Doubt!) and rediscover surprise wins. Did you know Johnny Cash’s “Hurt” video won for cinematography in 2003? We didn’t either.
Had to end on a spicy note! What better time than now to explore?
Now go forth and romance! Let me know what you think of our date nights without leaving home! And please do mention @tianash when you post on social media. We can’t wait to see the fun you have!
