Fun Date Ideas for Married People

Remember how much fun you had with your partner before you got married? Dates were always so exciting. This is because you were just getting to know the person, but also because many times you were doing a new or different activity. Now that you’re married, though, date night is likely more often than not watching T.V. or collapsing on the couch in complete boredom! There are many alternatives to resigning yourself to this and you don’t have to spend a lot of money to have a great time together.

Fun Date Idea

Do something creative. Make an art project together. Go to a hobby store and buy 2 small prestretched canvases which are only a few dollars each. Also get several bottles of acrylic craft paint and a small brush. This paint cleans up easily with water and comes in tons of colors. Work together to create coordinating paintings, or surprise each other and don’t show your painting until it is done. If you are not an artistic type, try something abstract like shapes, letters, numbers, stripes, circles or even trace something like a cookie cutter with a pencil and then paint. Try painting one giant flower in a bright color. When you are finished, you will have had lots of laughs and when they are hanging on the wall you will always remember your fun date night together.

Fun Date Idea

Each of you gets $5.00 cash and head to the Dollar Store. Split up and pick out 4 or 5 surprises for your partner. These can be fun gag gifts or more serious items. Try to choose things that you can also do as an activity. For example, pick a kite and then go fly it together. Or a toy rocket and go to a park and launch it. Buy nail polish in a bright glitter color and let your husband paint your toenails.

Just make sure that the nail polish goes well with your toenails and never pick any random shade just for the sake of it. Regular outings are  a much better option as both of you are alone in some secluded place and you will understand each other better and you can relay your likes, dislikes and preferences to each other without consulting the okcupid date app, which leads to confusing situations.

Fun Date Idea

Dress up in fancy clothes, go to a public place like a city park fountain or elegant building or hotel lobby and take pictures of each other. Better yet, ask someone to take your picture together. Wear a long formal dress with lots of jewelry and makeup. Have fun telling people it is just your date night. Then go to a fast food or ice cream place and have a treat. This is only fun if you really like drawing attention, but it will make you feel special and romantic to be dressed up.

Fun Date Idea

If you love animals, visit the zoo. Take pictures of the animals and pretend you are on a safari, try not to let any cages or bars show in the shots. Feed the animals if it is allowed.

Fun Date Idea

Go to a high school sporting event, preferably a football game at an outdoor stadium. Bring a little blanket to sit on and cuddle up under while you watch the game. Buy lots of popcorn, nachos and sodas and cheer for your home team until you’re hoarse. Walk around under the bleachers and steal a kiss. If it’s not football season, try a basketball or hockey game. Try a local college to see if they have any sporting events going on.
