Going rafting is an adventure in itself. Rafting can be a date that lasts a few hours or the entire day if you want. Some rafters might stop along the way and go fishing. Cooking your catch near the bank of the river is a fantastic treat. However, just going down the river in the raft is more than enough fun. Enjoy the scenery, the fresh air, and spending the day with your spouse. Try to take breaks to talk if the water is calm enough that you don't have to stay so focused that it's impossible to say a word. The conversation has a way of flowing like the river water once you're out there and enjoying yourself.
For those of you who don't know, rappelling is when you go down the side of a mountain using a rope. Think of rappelling as being the opposite of mountain climbing. Rappelling allows you to experience the height and beauty of a mountain without having the difficult journey of climbing up it. You get to bounce around on the rope until you're all the way down to the very bottom. Those couples who enjoy outdoor adventures will get the most out of rappelling. Rappelling does require some equipment and training, so do your research and determine the best way to be safe and have a great time. If you really want to turn your rappelling into something special, go camping afterward to get the most of being in the great outdoors.
Radio-controlled cars offer the type of fun that very few things can. If you've got two radio-controlled cars, then you already have the perfect tools for a date at the park. If you only have one RC car, don't sweat it, you can take turns at the park. Just about anywhere is the right spot to play with your cars. A park, the sidewalk, a parking lot, or maybe even the grass if you have an off-road vehicle. You can even set up a race track and see who can drive around it in the fastest time. Be creative and come up with your own games to turn your RC date into a fun-filled evening.
At first glance, a date featuring reading doesn't sound all that exciting for some people. If you need to mix it up a little, take turns reading the book out loud and make voices for every character. It doesn't matter if the voices sound silly; that's all a part of the fun. The sillier you sound, the more fun you'll have with each other. The book you choose to read should be something that both of you enjoy. You can set aside an hour every week for your reading date until the book is completed. You'll have so much fun taking turns while reading that you won't be able to wait until your weekly storytime date comes around.
Arts & Culture
There are a few ways you can turn poetry into a date. The first way is by writing your own poems and sharing them. You can also read poems written by others that you find online or in books. Try to convey what the poem is saying with your voice and body language. Act out parts of the poem to emphasize the meaning behind certain parts of it. It's also fun to have a themed poetry reading night. For example, love might be a theme for one night, while sadness could be a theme for your next poetry reading date.
There are many reasons why someone wants to reduce their electric bill from wanting to cut back on carbon emissions to saving money. Every day you waste an enormous amount of electricity. Go through your home and try to identify all of the ways that you're wasting electricity. It won't be long until you've found several things that are draining cold hard cash from your wallet. After identifying which appliances are wasting electricity, come up with a game plan to stop it from happening. The solution may be to turn off the appliance or do a little research to find appliances that use much less energy. Spending a little time upfront can reap benefits month after month that you can put towards your next date night out.
Fun & Games
A book of riddles is the type of at-home fun that any couple can enjoy. There are also plenty of riddles that you can find online. Try to see who can answer the most riddles or team up on the hardest ones you can find. The person with the highest score gets bragging rights for the entire night. Riddles come in all topics, and the ones you try to solve should be about things you know about. Add some snacks to your riddle-solving date, and it'll be far more enjoyable. A bowl of popcorn or even a frozen pizza is the perfect snack to munch while trying to solve a riddle.
Hitting the road is always a lot of fun. A road trip can be taking a trip for a few miles, or it can be an all-day adventure. Plan your road trip to ensure that you have as much fun as possible. Consider going to a fun destination, or a fun dinner in a sleepy highway town, or whatever floats your boat. If you have a little extra money, spend the night in a hotel. Make sure to do a little online research about the hotel to ensure that you don't end up spending the night in a dump. You can also be spontaneous and surprise your spouse or even hit the road without a plan and see where it leads you.
True rock climbing is an outdoor activity, but there are some indoor places where you can practice rock climbing too. Many couples who go on rock climbing dates enjoy being in the great outdoors while also getting quite a workout. You can't climb a rock without working up a pretty good sweat. Rock climbing is so popular that it's one of the few activities where you can be at one with yourself. Everything is erased from your mind when you're focused on going from one move to the next. When you're rock climbing as a date, you can offer each other support and guidance on which places to grip and hold onto.
Fun & Games
Role-playing games enable you to get out of your shell and be someone else. You can discover sides of your spouse you never knew existed during a role-playing date. There are a wide variety of games that you can play, and some of them can even be found on the internet. A date of playing a role-playing game is usually less about the game and more about spending quality time together. Sometimes couples need a little nudge to relax and enjoy a little alone time. If it takes playing a game, then pull out the box or load up the app and have at it. Enjoy some snacks, order a pizza, or slurp down some fizzy sodas while playing a game that should bring you closer together.
Health & Wellness
Going for a quick run is a great exercise, and it's also a fantastic way to spend some time with each other. Before your running date, scout out an area that is safe to run. If you're a regular runner, you won't have a problem finding a place to run. If you're living in a big city, a park is probably your best bet to find a safe running space. Bring along some fruit or water bottles and take a break during your running date to spend a little time with each other. If you're feeling up to it, you can have a little competition to see who can run the furthest without getting winded. Running not only is a fantastic one-time date idea but a healthy lifestyle that will reward you for years if you can turn it into a habit.
RV stands for recreational vehicle, but you already know that if you own one. If you don't have an RV of your own you can rent them for reasonable rates. A trip in an RV turns date night into an adventure. Where are you going to go? Maybe you go to a national park and visit for the day. Longer dates might include traveling to several different states and living out of your RV for an extended period. Stock your RV with plenty of supplies and a full tank of gas, and the date night possibilities are endless. You can tailgate, hit the road, or go camping and enjoy a several day-long music festival without worrying about lodging.
