Top 20 Romantic Date Ideas of All Time

1. Check Out A Jazz Pub

Dress up in your finest and live it up like you were in the film La La Land. Enjoy some live jazz, drink some whiskey (or your choice of beverage), and transport yourself to another era…minus Ryan Gosling of course..

2. Keep It Together When You’re Apart

For those who have to make it long distance, a weekly movie date is a perfect idea to keep it alive. Just pick something you both like and watch at the same time, texting or calling to share the scenes you like or hate.

3. Take A Dance Class

With dance you can get the romantic intimacy going and have fun at the same time.

4. Read The Same Book

Reading in each other’s arms bonds you both physically and spiritually.

5. Play Games

Whether it’s chess or some geeky board games, it’s always fun to get competitive. Competition is sexy, right?

6. Go See The Concert of Your Favorite Musician

See a concert — not just major headliners at huge venues, but check out smaller places which showcase indie artists and up-and-comers.

7. Take Beautiful Picture of Each Other

Make it your mission to start taking photos of everything you see. Go on a car ride and find great places to shoot.

8. Stargaze

For me personally, it’s the most romantic thing a couple can do.

9. Go For A Boat Ride

If you think about it, life is really just one giant boat trip, isn’t it? And girls…just relax and let the guy row~~

10. Train For A Race Together

Think about how awesome it will feel when you both run your first 5K — or marathon! And then think about the post-marathon sex…

11. See An Improv

Not only is attending these shows generally way cheaper than buying seats for “traditional” theater, the improvisers often ask for audience participation—and sell beer in the back.

12. Go To A Street Fair

Dates don’t always have to be expensive and fancy. You can experience the joy of discovering new foods and vendors.

13. Go Bowling

Get your coolest retro outfit on and just bowl.

14. Spend The Night By The Fireplace

Admit it: Flames are sexier than CFL’s any day. Start a fire, turn off the lights, and talk with your guy until there’s only embers.

15. Get Caught In The Rain

Rainy outside? Great! Grab your guy and head outdoors. Getting caught in a spring shower pretty much forces you to lock lips in a passionate embrace.

16. Make Your Own Scavenger Hunts

Explore around your city or town, filled with clues based on your ~history~ together.

17. Get Massages

Yep, it’s definitely a must when it comes to a couple’s romance. Just go to the spa and do what needs to be done. Don’t forget to use Groupon.

18. Hit Up The Farmers’ Market

And then see what sort of fresh dinner you can make with those ingredients. Look at you, locavores!

19. Have Ice Cream

Ice cream is sweet and so is love. And why does it always have to be dinner?

20. Feeling inspired? Pick one and try it with your loved one tonight !
