Being in a relationship opens up a world of possible activities. While double dates and movie nights are fun, doing something new can be even more exciting. However, you two may have tried all of the classics at this point. If this is the case for you, here are six unique ways to have fun as a couple.
If you want to be that couple with a million inside jokes, doing some secret activities may be the thing to try. Essentially, secret activities refer to anything you do as a couple that isn’t shared with others. This could be anything from a cute secret, like wearing couples’ underwear, to going on a trip! Just be sure to notify your loved ones if you plan on doing something substantial.
Sometimes, you need to take a deep breath and stare at the stars. Why not do that with your significant other? Go outside at night (preferably in your backyard or another safe area) and look at the night sky. Not only can you see a full view of the night sky, but you can also watch engaging documentaries on a circular screen! To add entertainment value, try to find certain constellations. If you guys live in an area with very few visible stars, you could try visiting a local planetarium.
No matter how nervous you guys are about posing for photos, having a photography session can be a lot of fun. For one thing, it gives you two an easy way to document this stage of your relationship. Photography also lets you guys work in collaboration and admire each other. If you’re looking for high-quality photos, you may want to hire a professional. However, doing it yourselves might be more memorable.
Who says kid-friendly outings can’t be enjoyed at all ages? Having a blast to the past with your significant other can be both nostalgic and a lot of fun! Luckily, this isn’t that odd of an idea. In fact, many kid venues offer experiences for adult visitors. One enjoyable option to try is laser tag. This essentially lets you play paintball without the fear of getting shot. You can also go to an adult summer camp or try a mature gaming venue.
Since learning to collaborate is an important part of being in a relationship, working together to solve something may be perfect for you two. There are many ways to solve a mystery. One option is a classic escape room outing, which has people collaborate to solve a series of puzzles in a room. Another option is having a friend set up a scavenger hunt. As long as the objects you’re searching for aren’t perishable, this could go on for a while! If you’re looking for a more laid-back option, try solving mini-mysteries online.
If you two are fans of all things horror, getting scared together can be wildly fun. If you aren’t, you may want to give this a try! For a less frightening choice, try having a horror movie marathon. Consider watching horror comedies like Scream if you’re worried about scares. If you want to try something more intense, visit a haunted house. During fall, you can probably find seasonal ones nearby. However, you may want to try visiting a legitimate haunted house at any time of the year.
Figuring out what to do as a couple can be hard, especially when you’ve been together for a while. Try spicing up your activities and see what works for you guys.
