10 Date Ideas to Overcome The Mundane
No matter where you are in your relationship, it can sometimes get mundane. This does not mean that your relationship is over. Rather, it means that there is room to explore your partner in a new way. You’ve gotten so used to the regularity of what a date night should look like, that it’s easy to forget to have a bit more fun. Don’t worry, we’re here to help.
Here are ten date ideas that can help you stray away from the mundane and level up your relationship.
1. Have a living room picnic
This is a chance for you and your partner to cook your favorite meals, which can be anything as simple as making a fruit and cheese platter to an extravagant dinner, with your wine of choice. Remember it is all about getting to know your partner better, so try having less TV and more calming music to set the tone for the evening.
2. Play board games
Board games like Monopoly and Sorry are always fun to play with a glass of wine nearby. Just try not to be a sore loser, it’s all about having fun.
3. Have a video game competition
If you’re not into board games, try a little friendly video game competition. To shake things up a little, you can even set bets of your choosing as an incentive. No need to worry if you haven’t played video games before. I’m sure your partner wouldn’t mind teaching you. Just remember, it’s okay to lose once in a while, that’s how you learn.
4. Baking time!
Baking a cake alone can sometimes be hard and time-consuming, but with your partner, it can be done with ease. Don’t be afraid to throw a little flour in each other’s faces, just save some for the cake.
5. Massage it out
This one is entirely up to you. You and your partner can either give each other a massage or get a massage together by a masseuse at a massage parlor. In other words, if your hands aren’t gifted for a massage, have a professional do it for you. Your partner will understand. Before making a decision, call your local massage parlor to find out if they’re open, and most importantly their safety guidelines.
6. Go on a hike
Find a nearby hiking trail and watch the sunrise or sunset together. Make sure to plan ahead so that you and your partner don’t find yourselves lost.

9. Take flying lessons
Taking flying lessons is a great way to explore your city in a new way, above ground. You will have a flying instructor to help you, so you won’t be alone trying to figure out how to fly on your own. It’s also the best way to get over your fear of heights, especially with your partner by your side holding your hand. With this is you will just stray away from the mundane in no time.
