Date ideas can be a challenge at the best of times but rules around social distancing add a further complication! I’ve taken a look at a few ideas to help make your social distancing dating a bit more fun. Whether you are going on a first date or spending time with a long-term partner, I hope there are some ideas in here that work for you!
Cooking is love made visible
There are plenty of sayings about the connection between food and love. The most classic date night activity is probably the meal out followed by a drink or two. Eating out in restaurants isn’t the default it has previously been during these Covid-19 times but that doesn’t mean that food can’t be central to your date.
The first idea is a simple one: cook together from your own kitchens. Surprise your date with a delivery that includes a recipe for the meal you’ve chosen, the ingredients and a drink to go with it. Is there a meal that means something to you both? Maybe a take on your favourite restaurants’ menu? A dish you ate on a special holiday together that brings back good memories?
Setup FaceTime, Zoom, Skype or any other video call in your kitchen so you can cook together, laugh and share the meal from the safety of your own home. This is a simple idea but will fill your evening will laughter and love!
Show your date just how intelligent and cultured you are by doing a virtual museum tour with your date. Museums have released some incredible online experiences in a short amount of time to allow people to “visit” during these times.
The Guardian newspaper have put together a comprehensive list of museums and art galleries that you can visit without leaving your house. Some highlights include The Guggenheim in Bilbao, The National History Museum in London and The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
Choose a museum or gallery that you want to visit but haven’t been able to. Sit back, load the tour and take each other on a walk around!
