5 Ideas To Date Your Way To Better Lovin'

Do you feel like you and your partner are in a rut of predictability?

Do you feel like you and your partner are in a rut of predictability? Rest assured, it may not be you or your partner and it’s easily fixed!

 

Lighting (or re-igniting) the pilot light in your love life is easy as planning the perfect date. Think about your dating life over the past months and years. Has it gotten routine in your relationship? Dinner at the local pub, because you like the food there, or a movie because it's Friday night. Rent a video and hang on the couch. In their own time and place these dates can be wonderful, with the right person, but doing nothing but these activities can become bland and predictable really fast. If your date activities are making you yawn it will most certainly carry over into your feelings for your partner. All you need to do is step up the date planning creativity — here's how:

5 Creative Date Ideas to Get You Started

 

1. Your Own Drive In Movie: Grab your honey, iPad and popcorn, and drive to a scenic lookout. Stream a romantic movie in your parked car. While you watch you can enjoy the scenery ... or each other!

2, Playtime: Head to the local Adult Toy Store. Make a game of it — each of you find a toy or two that you'd love to play with. Then head home with your bag of sexy playthings and … play!

 

3. The 007 Date: Plan a dinner at a romantic restaurant — but don't tell your date where you're going. Plant clues for her to follow. Let her be the “spy” who has to figure out adventure awaits here.

4. Get Dirty & Do Good: Spend the day together working with Habitat For Humanity to build homes. You'll spend time together, meet new friends and give back to your community simultaneously.

 

5. Funky Food Fest: “Foodies” — Cooking classes are a great way to do something fun and creative together. Many culinary schools offer these. You can eat your creations and many places let you bring a bottle of wine too!
