Looking for new ways to warm up your date night? Whether it’s too cold to go to your usual dinner spot or you just want to try something new, we’ve gathered seven exciting date night activities you and your partner can enjoy.
1. Learn your Love Languages.
Personality tests and quizzes are a great way to learn more about your significant other, specifically the Love Languages quiz. The concept is based on a book by Gary Chapman that breaks down the ways we receive love into five different categories: Receiving Gifts, Acts of Service, Quality Time, Physical Touch, and Words of Affirmation. The quiz is totally free and only takes a few minutes. You’ll discover so much about your partner and have a blast doing it.
If you’re looking for more quizzes to take with your partner, download the Happy Couple app (iOS and Android) to your smartphone or tablet. It’s a quiz-style app that asks you and your partner different questions daily from a variety of topics. As you answer, you’ll find that the app sparks discussions on unexpected but important topics.
2. Host an old school movie night.
For a fun night in, snuggle up together and each pick out your favorite movie from your childhood. Not only do you get to be cozy with your partner, but you’ll get a glimpse into their past as they revisit a happy part of their childhood.
Don’t have a copy of the movie? You can chill on the couch in front of the TV, grab your tablet and stay in bed, or use your smartphone wherever you are to stream your favorite movies.
3. Go ice skating!
Might as well take advantage of the cold weather and turn it into something fun! Ice skating is a great bonding activity for you and your partner, especially if you’re new to it. You may slip and slide a little, but it’s all part of the fun. Most cities host outdoor skating rinks during the winter, but you may have an indoor rink nearby, too. Don’t forget to bundle up!
4. Volunteer together.
What better way to spend time with your partner than by helping someone in need? Volunteering with your partner gives you the chance to spend time with them, but also give back to your community.
There are several apps and websites for finding volunteer activities in your area, like Volunteer.gov and Volunteer Match. These sites help you find volunteer opportunities in your area based on your interests, skills, time and location.
5. Attend a class and learn something new.
Learning something new with a partner gives you both something you can share forever, plus gives you quality time with each other away from the cold. Whether it’s cooking, glass blowing, or salsa dancing, you’ll have a great time being beginners together. Sites like longlinedance.com help you find classes near you based on what you’re interested in.
6. Take a mini road trip.
Road trips don’t have to be long to be worth it. Pick a city 30-45 minutes away you’ve never been to and explore it with your partner. It’s a nice change of scenery, but not too far from home.
Before you hit the road, make sure to take Hum with you. With vehicle diagnostics, 24/7 crash response, pinpoint roadside assistance and more, Hum keeps you safe while you travel. Plus, with HumX, you can connect up to 10 devices to the built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. To get yours, visit your nearest Cellular Sales store.
7. Plan dates for the rest of the year.
While you’ve got your significant other in front of you, take some time to plan out dates in advance. Brainstorm fun ideas together, check each other’s calendars, and get creative. You’re spending time together while planning more time together – sounds like a blast!
