Don't worry for we are here to give you five smashing quirky ideas for a successful and creative date.
1. Virtual Workout
It's difficult to get into the habit of working out regularly when you are home alone, believe us, we know. But keeping your body and mind healthy doesn't have to be so lonesome, boost your mood with your partner over a good workout session. Fix a time and search for a workout routine suits you both and get sweaty! If an intense workout is not your cup of tea, you can always do yoga. It will help relax your mind and body, relieve stress and works wonders for that annoying back pain that you both have from sitting in front of your laptop all day.
2. Take An Online Class Together
Break the monotony of everyday life and dive into something creative and explore things you've never tried your hand at before. Learn something new together like pottery, painting in various mediums, a software that you're both interested in. You can also take up creative writing or letter writing classes and write something for each other at the end of the class. Take up poetry or a music instrument you have lying around, the options are endless. There are many websites available for amazing classes from extremely charming and skilled people like Skillshare, Udemy etc. or the trusty old YouTube.
3. Netflix Party
Snuggling together and watching a movie is another level of intimacy, but we understand that's not possible right now. Don't let some distance dampen your mood because you can both watch a movie or a show together at the same time and discuss your reactions with Netflix Party or other browser extensions. So heat the popcorn and put up a sweet romantic comedy and enjoy a movie date night like never before.
4.Game, Set & Go!
Get your game face on and challenge your partner in a virtual game or team up and play your favorite game together. Gaming can be considered a little unusual for a date, but that's make's it more interesting. You can play any game you like or explore some new game genres together. If you are in your initial dating stage, playing a game together will be a great ice breaker.
5. Share your Culture!
The world is full of different people with different culture and food etc. If your partner belongs to a different state or country than you, ask them to introduce you to their favorite things about where they grew up. It can be food, art, a particular tradition or even language. Show them how much you care about them by learning to cook their favorite traditional dish and you can teach them yours. It will help you get closer and appreciate each other in a different light.
Things are strange and so is dating online, but don't let that stop you from having the time of your life with your loved one. Sending gifts and flowers are all good but do remember to spend some quality time with them, for distance just gives you a reason to love harder.
