Let’s be realistic: after so many months locked inside the house or with all the restrictions, everyone needs a little time for relaxing, as long as the social distancing recommendations are followed.
During the pandemic, people had to keep their adventurous get together ideas to themselves, capitalizing on their safety and the safety of those around them. But, according to dating experts, there are a lot of ways you can enjoy a romantic date… all you have to do is be a little creative.
Recommendations of specialists for couple activities
Ish Major, a psychiatrist and relationship expert, tells us that, on a certain level, we need connection: “We need to know that we will have enough love in this world to be OK. Most of us need to feel important in a relationship. Although times change, these needs never do. “
To avoid making things monotonous, especially in the context of a pandemic that forced us to be a little more creative to avoid boredom, here are some ideas for offline dates that are both fun and follow the recommendations.
Picnic in the park
Nothing is more romantic than a picnic in 2. You can catch the sunset, toasting a glass of wine or the sunrise, with a few mimosas and a hearty breakfast.
All you need is a blanket, a park, or a yard, and your favorite food and drinks. This way you can also avoid crowded areas and enjoy the desired privacy.
Given that the terraces are still crowded, how about a wine tasting? Besides the fact that the spots are limited, it is an opportunity to get to know each other better.
While enjoying the variety of assortments, you can also find out something about the history of wines and their production process.
If you are both animal lovers, an hour of riding will completely relax you. There are many clubs that offer tours through the forest, at reasonable prices.
A one-day getaway
Before the pandemic, we didn’t have to wait for the weekend to celebrate… we could go out after work, any day. Things got tougher now, especially since most of us work from home.
A one-day getaway where you can enjoy each other’s company sounds great, doesn’t it? This is the perfect opportunity to test different kinds of accommodation, such as tree houses, glamping, boats, or even RVs. You can also turn the mini trip into an extended weekend.
Tourist in your city
Often you might feel like you’ve seen your own city 1000 times and know each street by heart. There are many places that you have certainly not explored or passed by without noticing.
Try exploring the places where you don’t usually go and let yourselves be impressed by the architectural beauty of the buildings. End the “tour” with a glass of freshly squeezed lemonade or a cocktail.
If you’re still one of the people who feel too uncomfortable to leave their houses, but you want to spend time together, how about a “home cinema”? Nothing will make you say “cinema” faster than the smell of popcorn.
Buy 2 bags of popcorn, a bag of nachos with your favorite dipping sauce, some sweets and a large bottle of juice and replicate the cinema experience. The advantage? You can see any movie you want!
