Being romantic isn’t hard if you are willing to put some effort in your relationship. Romantic love doesn’t have to fade away, but you need to make sure you spice it up. Here are some fun date ideas to spice up your relationship.
While having a dinner out is nice, restaurants are not always they best places to have a romantic date. Why? Because first of all, you pay attention to the food instead of each other. Second of all, it might be hard to talk if it is loud at a restaurant and you will be constantly interrupted by a waiter.
Going out to see a movie is a good idea only if you are going to spend some time together before or after it. Staring at a movie screen is not going to freshen up your marriage or relationship.
One of the best romantic date ideas is a romantic walk. Depending on where you live, you can go to the park, to the lake or to the beach, hold each others hands and pay attention to each other. This is the cheapest and the best date ideas, because you can actually connect with each other and communicate without distractions.
When you are out on a date avoid talking about your daily routine activities, mortgage payments or even your kids, if you have any. Make this date a truly romantic one.
Ask each other questions about their childhood, your likes and dislikes. If you have been together for a while, try to remember when you first met or your first date. These memories entice anyone into a romantic mood and will help you feel the passion you felt in the beginning of your relationship.
Another fun way to have a romantic date is to re-create your first date. Unless your date was in another country, go to the place you first met or had your first official date. If your date was at a coffee shop or a restaurant, order the same items you did back then, wear the same perfume and maybe even try to style your hair as you had it styled.
All these will undoubtedly bring you memories and will help you feel as you did in the beginning of your relationship. Tell each other how you felt, what you noticed, how nervous you were and so on. Flirt with each other, look into each others eyes when you talk.
There is an old clich that a married couple is easy to spot at a restaurant, because they don’t talk to each other. If you are married, break this stereotype. You don’t have to be born romantic to be one.
