Are you looking for some fun activities to enjoy during the current pandemic? It’s true that Covid-19 has curtailed many of the romantic activities that you can enjoy with a partner. But with a bit of creativity, you can easily think of some new ones. Here are the 5 very best date night things to do during the pandemic.
1. Cook Up a Fun Meal
If you really want to impress your date, you can cook them a delicious meal. This can be a winning idea even if you are low on ingredients or inspiration. If worse comes to worst, you can quickly throw together a stew or gumbo made up of various leftovers. Be sure to include all of your date’s favorite food items to really get their attention.
Cooking for your partner may be a shameless ploy to butter them up. But it’s also a great way to connect after a hard day at work. You can use it as an excuse to enjoy some romantic quality time together in the midst of a brutalizing pandemic. The time you spend with your date over a meal is the perfect way to recover from it all.
2. Enjoy a Food Delivery
Suppose you don’t feel like cooking? If your date is running late or you just don’t have the energy, there are other ways to get fed. You can enjoy a healthy meal delivery from a local service. This will take all of the guesswork and drudgery out of the equation. Order an hour or so in advance so that the meal will be there when your date arrives.
3. Watch a Romantic Movie
Even if you can’t get out to see a movie, you can still plan to enjoy one at home. Choose a good romantic flick, a classic comedy, or some hot new drama. Set the widescreen TV on “theater” mode and enjoy. It’s a great way to relax and lose yourself in some worthy cinema for a few hours while you snuggle up close and come together.
4. Take a Virtual World Tour
Since you’re stuck indoors with your date, you may as well make your breakout in the virtual realm. You can’t get on a plane or boat to go anywhere romantic or exciting. But there is a device called the world wide web that will let you take a safe and convenient virtual tour of any area in the world you desire to know about.
A virtual tour is a great idea because you can use the web to see just about any place in the world that may catch your interest. You can show your date the inside of the Louvre or the top of the Eiffel Tower. You can enjoy a romantic dinner while taking a virtual tour of the Great Wall of China or the sunny beaches of the Hawaiian Islands.
5. Camp Out in the Back Yard
The two of you may be getting very frustrated with the ongoing lack of travel options. It can seem at times that the current global pandemic is set on shutting the world down, one area at a time. You may have loved going out to the beach, the mountains, or other camping areas. But now even getting to the grocery store is harder than ever.
As it turns out, you can still enjoy a good old-fashioned romantic camping trip. You will just need to exercise a little creativity. You can turn your own backyard into a classic romantic camping getaway for a night or two. Spread out some sleeping bags in a tent, grab some snacks and flashlights, and enjoy a night in the outdoors. Squint a little and it’s a bit like being together in your favorite place.
Oh, the Places You’ll Go!
Even amid the current global pandemic, there are still plenty of fresh and exciting ways to get creative. Your only limits are the size of your budget and the scope of your imagination. The venue is indeed limited but this shouldn’t stop you from having fun. The tips on this list should be enough to get you both started.
