Mix up a stale date night routine with one of these guaranteed good times.
Go on a Play Date
Every romance needs a little fun and games. Call him up and ask to go on a "play date"! Take a book to the park and read a few chapters to each other or whip out a deck of cards and play Go Fish. You can even spend a few hours at an arcade and have some real fun until your tokens run out.

Give the Petting Zoo a Chance
Cute. Baby. Animals! Need we say more? Don’t worry about the smell, the outdoors or all of the negatives that would come with this date idea. Show off your patience and ability to adapt to any environment, it’ll leave a good impression on your guy and you’ll prove to yourself that you can make it through even the most random of situations. Who knows, you might even get an adorable Instagram picture out of it too!

See What You Can Find at the Flea Market
Teaming up to dig through bins for some antique goodies or vintage giveaways could lead to wonderful finds and good times. Maybe you’ll find an old camera that still works, a great book with the previous owner's annotations in the margins or a really dope piece to place in your apartment. All of which are great conversation starters.

Embarrass Yourself at a Karaoke Bar
You already know that karaoke makes a great group date, but what about a romantic duet moment? Sometimes you just have to have a little fun while totally embarrassing yourself. Meet up at a karaoke bar, have a few cocktails and just sing your hearts out. When you don’t take yourself too seriously, you end up enjoying yourself tremendously. Promise.

Know that Movie Dates are a Thing
This isn’t code for Netflix and chill. I actually want to watch a movie—perhaps a marathon with a side of popcorn.

Try a Breakfast Date
Not brunch, but breakfast. Make an early Saturday morning meal run together to start your day off with romantic, feel-good vibes.

Try Learning a New Language Together
Have you always wanted to learn French, Spanish or something else? Go on a date to learn a new language. It’ll be fun and you’ll forever have a story of how the two of you mastered (or butchered) a whole new language.

Sit Down With a Psychic Or Palm Reader
See a tarot card reader or a numerologist to find out what the stars have in store for you. You can laugh off your “future fortunes” or take it as seriously, it's totally up to you. Whether you're a believer or not, you're going to have a GREAT story after this one.

Giving back with your boo is about as feel-good as it gets. Helping others will bring you closer together and doing some good won't cost you anything.

Browse Every Aisle
Going shopping together doesn’t have to be a drag. Slow down the pace and create the moment. Start by walking every aisle in the store together. Seriously! It’ll give you guys a chance to talk (and shop). You’ll learn quirky things about each other and kill two birds with one stone by picking up things you need for the week while bonding with your boo!
