January 11, 2019
“It’s been said that you only truly fall in love once. But I don’t believe it. Every time I see you, I fall in love all over again.”
Send the kids to the grandparents’. Pick a movie. Throw the mattress on the floor. Make S’mores. Cuddle. It’s a recipe for fun! How to make a S'more
WATCH MOVIES TOGETHER
These are so silly and predictable that you can probably talk all of the way through them and it’s important to spend time conversing while getting to know one another. Buy some weird grocery store dessert and relax in a way you’ve never known possible.
READ TO EACH OTHER
There’s a 90% chance your date is going to find this sexy.
PLAY VIDEO GAMES
You can find an arcade that has a pinball machine or big game hunter of some sort to play or dig up the Super Nintendo that you probably have stored somewhere in your parents’ basement.
SING KARAOKE - BUT TAKE IT ONE STEP FURTHER
Karaoke- which might be a typical date, but make it weird by like… actually picking difficult songs or for real choosing your favorite songs without feeling embarrassed.
NIGHT TIME BIKE RIDES
Night Time bike rides- not as safe, but on a beautiful summer night with a perfect breeze I can hardly imagine anything more romantic or fun- just be sure to wear bike helmets and use lights.
INTERNET WINDOW SHOPPING
This is for when you’re really bored and stuck inside together. What you do is go onto you favorite designer’s (or most expensive clothing store’s) website and you pick out outfits for each other that you would buy if you had money and OK if you do have a ton of money than this date can just be “internet shopping.”
DRINK WINE IN THE BATH TUB
Drink wine in the bathtub, with the lights off and some candles going. Extra points if you buy really silly bubble bath. Let your senses take you to a place of happiness. A place of delightful fragrances and smooth velvety textures.
This comprehensive range consists of a Bubble Bath, Hand Wash, Hand Crèmesand a Shower Gel range. And these impressive ranges all speak one language –luxury.
AT HOME FOOD CHALLENGE
Without going to the grocery store try as hard as you can to create a meal or snack using the ingredients in your cupboard. This is an activity where you can really impress someone with your resourcefulness.
PLAY BOARD GAMES
Great for competitive lovers.
WRITE A SONG TOGETHER
This works best if you are musicians, but can be just as entertaining if you aren’t.

I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”
