Looking to spend intimate time with your boo always realising that the desired effect in mind never meets with the actual?
Pine no further. Just read on!
RAID THE MARKET TOGETHER PRIOR TO COOKING
Drive or walk down to the market together during the weekend or when you have taken a day off, and splurge on fresh, organic vegetables and flesh to prepare a farm fresh dinner date at home, because it isn’t always possible to buy fresh ingredients from the supermarket or local stores.
RELIVE SIGNIFICANT MEMORIES
It has been about 5 years since you are together as a couple now and you often discuss this specific tape you owned that you both enjoyed listening to together, 5 years earlier. You have misplaced it? How about you go searching for that tape together in town? Jot down other such stuff you own no longer but have enjoyed possessing at one time and go looking for those stuff all over town. Doesn’t it sound like an exciting thing to do?
WATCH EACH OTHER GETTING RUBBED AND MASSAGED
Indulge in a spa treatment to help yourselves relax and enjoy your night better.
HOLD A COMPETITION AND AWARD WHOEVER WINS
You might want to compete with each other for fun or play either indoor or outdoor games in frolic, like badminton, cricket or chess, or a quiz. Write down what each of you would like your date to do provided you win and make them sign it. The one who wins gets to have it their way. That’s the rule!
LEARN SOMETHING NEW TOGETHER
You might want to take dance classes with your date or maybe singing or music lessons to be able to perform together at any gathering or on ocassion and festivals like an engagement or a wedding ceremony.
ACCOMPANY EACH OTHER TO STREET FAIRS
Attend street food festivals or fairs and spend a fruitful time with your date. Create memories that you’ll cherish. Buy each other mementos and caress your taste buds with interesting new delicacies you have never tried earlier.
TAKE PART IN COUPLE CONTESTS
If you check the net or the newspaper, you’ll find that a number of concerts for couples are held frequently around the city, you might want to take part in and win an award and exciting goodies together.
PUB HOPPING IS A FUN THING FOR WHEN YOU’RE LOOKING TO GET DRUNK
If you aren’t the type to sit at home but like being arm in arm with your date, walking down the streets, painting the town red, drawing attention from townsmen then you might want to go pub hopping, either just the both of you or with another couple or two.
GO OUT FOR DESSERT AND SKIP THE DINNER!
Switch the cliched main course meal for dessert.
Visit the best parlours in town and relish on diverse flavoured ice-creams, cakes and souffles, chucking the main course completely.
PICK UP STUFF FOR EACH OTHER ON YOUR DATE
Go out together, shop for him and let him shop for you while you shop together.This is as endearing an activity as it sounds because even though you’ll be out together, you won’t be shopping for yourselves but for one another.
PLAN A WEEKEND GETAWAY WITHOUT SECOND THOUGHT
You guys most likely have a busy schedule and hence no time to plan a long trip but you might as well take a break and plan a short holiday during the weekend to someplace nearby. Take the time out for yourselves, leave everything behind and enjoy in each other’s company, away from the hustling city.
STAR GAZE AT NIGHT AND BIRD WATCH AT DAWN
Treat yourselves to sparkling stars in the night sky, lying yourselves down on the grass, in seclusion with a glass of wine each by the side and perhaps drive through the night to the woods to watch birds and hear them singing; and the rest of the day will follow the rhythm you set, right at the beginning.
LET’S GO GYMING! WHERE? IN EITHER OF OUR LIVING ROOMS
Set up a gym in your house, or just simply lay down yoga mats and work out together with your date in the comfort of your house. Look forward to a nice cosy shower after the tenacious work out session. I’d suggest however that you try not to strain your already stressed muscles eh?
HOW ABOUT AN EARLY MORNING SWIM FOLLOWED BY A SUMPTUOUS BRUNCH?
See each other early in the morning and have breakfast together. It is a wondeful feeling trust me you, especially if you can get a dip in the pool prior to the breakfast and then drive to a good breakfast spot and fill your tummy. Meeting early morning, without traces of make up, dressed in complete casuals and then ridding yourselves off the mental stress together in the water. What can be more romantic?
BECOME FAUX PHOTOGRAPHERS AND CLICK EACH OTHER FOR FUN’S SAKE
Drive down to a place which consists of beautiful scenery or start clicking when you are away on a weekend trip. No scenery to capture? Nevermind. Start clicking one another and discover each other in ways you’ve never had. Be at your intimate best.
WHOEVER SAID YOU’RE TOO OLD TO PLAY WITH WATER?
Become children once again. Play with each other without any holds barred. Give in to your utmost childish desires. Drench yoursleves in water, get your clothes wet, and covered in mud. Do this in ways it seems wrong and unlikely for adults to involve themselves in. Imagining myself playing with water like a child still gets me all gooey and excited.
GET TOGETHER AND FLARE UP ONE ANOTHER’S HOME DÉCOR
Do it for the both of you and more so if you have a lot of friends coming over to your place on weekends. Set up a bar, or fit disco lights and provide for a dance floor, if not for others, for yourselves.
GO BACK TO SCHOOL
Revisit old memories as you visit your school together. Show each other around in your schools and share with each other specific memories from school and if both were from the same school then revive the times spent together, experiencing everything all over again.
BECOME THE MENACE YOU DREAD
Just as I had mentioned in one of the previous points. Let go of the child inside you and outdo all restrictions that your mind suggests in favour of what your heart yearns for. You’re not going to regret it. Find a waterbody to dip yourselves in, play with mud or play pranks on people, steal from your neighbours’ garden, ring a random door bell and run, make prank calls or engage in something as simple as a pillow fight at the comfort of your home and don’t think twice. Enjoy a break from the usual, treating yourselves to the unlikely.
AND TO TOP IT ALL, DOCUMENT THE DATE
No matter what you do, record it. Make a video, take amples of pictures throughout the day to document it and relive it on a later date. If you go dancing, ask someone to capture a movie of you both dancing together, if you go pubbing, click pictures of anything and everything you’re doing. Start from the clothes you choose to wear and end to when you’re going to bed – together.
To all the lovers bored of hitting the theatre and the movies, ending up going home realising that they’ve learnt more about the movie than about one another – Cheers to your date!
