For those of you who don't know, acroyoga combines yoga and acrobatics. Also written as acro yoga and acro-yoga, acroyoga requires two people, and that's what makes it such a fantastic date idea. You can easily find an acroyoga class by searching Google. Just type in acroyoga + your city to find classes in your area. If you can't find classes or wish to practice at home, do a simple search on YouTube for videos to instruct you on how to do acroyoga by yourselves. Any date that gets your blood flowing and focusing on exercise is a good thing. If you really want to kick your acroyoga date into high gear, follow it up with some healthy snacks. After a couple of acroyoga dates you'll begin to feel the difference, and your dates will end up being a regular routine to stay fit.
Arts & Culture
Everyone watches TV and movies and thinks that they can act as well as their favorite actors. An acting date will enable you to put your acting chops to the test. If you want to take your acting date to the next level, record the two of you acting, and share it on YouTube. If you're not feeling so adventurous, you can share what happened during your date with people you know. You can act out scenes from your favorite movies, go a notch higher and read Shakespeare, or make up your own script. Acting enables you to get in touch with your inner artist, and it also allows you to see another side of your spouse that you may have never seen before.
Classes & Workshops
Do you have an inner actor or actress waiting to come bursting out? If so, acting classes are more than just a date; they could be a path to something even bigger. Even if the two of you just like to watch movies and television, acting classes can be a lot of fun. You'll no doubt bust up laughing at trying your best to act out each scene. The skills that you learn can be used at home on future dates to act out scenes in your favorite movies. Acting is an art, and a date filled with allowing your artistic side to flourish is a healthy outlet that will benefit both of you greatly.
Fun & Games
No matter where you live, there are opportunities to act like a tourist. What does it mean to act like a tourist? It means that you do things that tourists do like go sightseeing, eat at new restaurants, go to museums that you've never been to before. See what tourists do when they visit where you live and do some of the same things. You may be surprised at all the popular attractions you have nearby that you have never experienced. If you live in a small town, you can always go to the next town over and act like a tourist there. Acting like a tourist is a fun date you can do for a few hours or turn it into an all-day affair.

Every day there are people all over the world that need a helping hand. The relationship you have as a couple is strengthened when you make the lives of others better. A single act of kindness can have a ripple effect on you and the people you help. How do you find people to perform acts of kindness for? You can start by looking at the people in your life and asking yourself how you can help them. You can also ask people in your church or civic organization if they know of anyone you can help. The love you have as a couple can be magnified and turned into something truly spectacular when you work together to improve others' lives.
Health & Wellness
Acupuncture is almost as old as time itself. Many people are surprised to learn that sticking needles throughout your body has medical benefits. Have you ever thought about turning getting poked by needles into a date? The two of you can lay in the same room while they poke you with needles. The entire process is surprisingly calming, and for whatever reason, acupuncture works. If you've never been poked like a pin cushion before, this is one of those date ideas that you'll always remember. Years from now, you'll laugh while thinking about when highly skilled professionals stuck needles all over your body. You may enjoy the health benefits of acupuncture so much that it becomes a regular date activity.
Fun & Games
Adult activity books have become quite popular over the past few years. An adult activity book is something like a word find, coloring book, or any of a wide variety of other puzzles or workbooks. You can easily find these types of books at your local dollar store, bookstore or online. You turn it into a date by taking turns or working on the same thing together. You both can color the same picture or look through a word search to find words. Mazes are also fun, and they don't require much skill. Pop some popcorn, throw a pizza in the oven, or pop the top off of a bottle of soda and add to your adult activity book date. You'll be surprised by how a small addition of a snack can make your date all that much more fun.
Adventuring is where you go out and do anything adventurous during a date. What do you consider an adventure? Going out on an adventure might mean scouring the countryside for abandoned houses and seeing what's in them for some people. While for others, it might be more urban where you try to find little hole-in-the-wall stores, restaurants, or other establishments that you never knew existed. Try to think outside the box and do things out of your comfort zone to make it even more memorable. You make up the adventure, and it's a date idea that you can switch up every time you do it. What's an adventure to one couple is extreme to another or maybe run of the mill to some. A few adventuring dates are all it takes to make the dates go from mild to mind-blowing.
Aeromodeling is remote controlled airplanes that you fly somewhat like drones. Before drones, people flew remote-controlled airplanes. As a couple, you can do this by taking turns flying a plane, or you each can have your own. If you're already familiar with drones, aeromodelling isn't going to seem very new to you. It will be different in the sense that you're going to be flying old-timey airplanes. Aviation buffs and those who like spending time outdoors will enjoy this date the most. Take your plane to the park or another area where you can get a running start and take off. Don't be surprised if aeromodelling turns out to be a date you do repeatedly because flying these fun planes can be very addictive.
Fun & Games
Playing air hockey is so much fun. Your local arcade probably has an air hockey table, but a restaurant might as well. The most fun thing about air hockey is you get to play a long time for the money. It takes only a few moments for both of you to become skilled enough at playing air hockey, where each point takes quite a while to score. The look on each other's faces while you're hitting the puck back and forth will be priceless no matter what's going on in your life. Air hockey immediately takes away all of your stress and enables you to focus on having a good time during your date.
Events & Attractions
Air shows are fun because you get to see aircraft do things that you only typically watch on television. Usually, air shows are free, and they take place in an open area where you can do other things on your date. For example, you could have a picnic before or after the air show to make your date even that much more special. You don't need to be an aviation buff to enjoy watching an air show since they tend to have a little something for everyone. Bring your lawn chairs and a cold drink and gaze up towards the heavens and be amazed by what happens in the sky.
Riding in an airboat is a fun way to see and experience an area such as a swamp or wetland. The average couple reading this won't have their own airboat or be able to drive one themselves. None of that is a big deal because if you live in an area where people use airboats, you'll be able to find someone who will rent it out and take you all over. You can ask the boat captain to be like a tour guide and tell you about all the things you pass through. You might also be able to ask the captain to stop the boat for you to go fishing or frog hunting. If nothing else, he might be able to stop the boat so the two of you can snap some pictures or maybe even have a picnic.
Aircraft spotting is a hobby that many people have that can be turned into a date. The easiest way to spot aircraft is by being near the airport. If you don't live near an airport, go online to see when and where the nearest planes, helicopters or other aircraft are to you. You should be able to see at least a few planes per day no matter where you live. However, you'll have the best results if you go near an airport. Some people prefer to hang out near small airports, while others prefer large commercial airports' excitement. Go to both types of airports on separate dates and see which of them you enjoy the most. Since you're up close to the aircraft take some photos that you can admire after your date is over.
Amateur or ham radio is an exciting way to connect with people all over the world. Every time you have a ham radio date, make a record of where the person is that you're talking to. Make it your goal to speak to people in as many states or countries as you can. The two of you can take turns talking to people and be a husband and wife duo. Try to find other couples from around the world who would like to have an amateur radio date night. It will be like a global double date or more if you can get several couples involved.
Food & Drink
Couples who consider themselves animal lovers are the ones who enjoy going to the animal cafe the most. What is an animal cafe? An animal cafe is a restaurant where you eat your meal near or accompanied by animals. The owner of the cafe determines the type of animals you eat near or some even allow you to bring your own pet. You can pet the animals and get to know them a little better before or after your meal. The fun part is that you express your love of animals, which most people don't get to do these days. Make sure you have your camera ready to capture the priceless expression on your spouse's face when something funny happens with the animals.
Animal encounters are one of those things that you never forget. Swimming with dolphins is one of the more common animal encounters that create memories that last a lifetime. Another great idea for a date like this is to go to a petting zoo. A petting zoo offers you the ability to have encounters with many different animals. Search in your area for animals that you can get up close and personal with. No matter where you live, at least one animal encounter date is just waiting to be had.

Going to an animal shelter can be a great date if the two of you are looking for a new pet to adopt. You can also volunteer at an animal shelter which is a great way to give back to the community and to share your love of animals on a date. Animal shelters are always in need of volunteers, and it's an excellent way for the two of you to spend some time together. During your volunteering date, you'll spend time with each other and take care of some of society's neediest animals. Knowing that you're improving the lives of animals while also spending quality time with the person you love makes this a no brainer date idea for many married couples.
Creating animation isn't as difficult as you might think it is in today's digital age. There are both free and paid software and services that you can use to create animations without being a professional graphic artist. If you'd like, you can break up your animation date into multiple dates. On the first date, you can write out the script for your animation. The second date you can bring your script to life and the third date is where you watch your animation. All three things can be done on one date if you have the time or know what you want to do right away. Sharing your animation with friends and family is always a whole lot of fun. You can also share the animation you produce together on the internet on YouTube or someplace else.
Going to antique shops is a fun way to spend an afternoon for any couple. You don't need to buy any antiques to make your date a success. Antiquing has grown in popularity over the years, and now there are more shops devoted to collecting items from the past. If the two of you share the same interests, it's even more fun because you can spot items both of you might want to purchase. Try your hand at haggling and do your best to get items for as cheaply as possible. Haggling is a part of the antique shopping experience, and it's sure to add a little flair to your date.

Aphrodisiacs are exciting because they get you in the mood for all kinds of things. Some of the most common foods said to be aphrodisiacs are chocolate, artichokes, figs, oysters, asparagus, strawberries, watermelon, and spicy chili peppers. There are also a ton of less common foods, herbs, etc. that are known for their aphrodisiacal properties. A quick Google search is all it takes to come up with several to try out. You might consider having this date in the bedroom because trying out aphrodisiacs too much may make you end up there anyway.
