From TheReporterAndTheGirl: New post Have a Romantic Date at Home

by

More fun and advice from New York via TheReporterAndTheGirl.! Hugh Paxton’s Blog will try a few. Monopoly is a no go zone in my experience. Who needs a pre-marital divorce after five hours of cheating and acrimonious debate over why all the crucial cards have gone missing. But otherwise games do work wonders. TheGirl is spot on in that department. I like the murder mysteries suggestion. My daughter is the most obvious candidate for a sledge hammer to the head in the observatory. But if my vile utterly offensive destructive, thieving and infuriating dog is found murdered with a candlestick stuck up its stinking arse in my library it would probably take three seconds for the crime to be solved and the criminal to be taken away. That would be me.

Keep this up TheGirl! Ideas like these make life fun!

Great stuff!

Hugh in Bangkok

Have a Romantic Date at Home

by TheGirl

Dating doesn’t have to be a chore. In fact, it can be fun, especially if you are dating that perfect someone. Sometimes the routine of dinner and a movie can get old and going out all the time can be expensive, so here are a few ideas for having a date night at home.

Wine Tasting

Whether you are a wine expert or not, this can be a fun way to experiment and find out what your date likes in their dinner beverage. If you want to get really creative, pair the wines with appropriate foods.

Cooking Together

Find a cookbook, flip to a random page and cook something brand new to the both of you. Have each person in charge of different parts of the meal or just wing it and see what happens. Not only can it be fun and adventurous but you might find a new favorite meal in the process!

Movie Marathon

There are a few options here. You can each pick your favorite movie and spend the night watching each other’s choices, or you can pick random movies and live on the adventurous side. Or, have fun and pick something you wouldn’t normally watch like a childhood favorite. Whatever it is, make sure it is light and fun.

Theme Night

Here’s an opportunity to go all out. Try anything from Arabian nights to a murder mystery to a favorite movie like Frozen. Just make sure you dive in 100 percent. Plan everything from the characters to the costumes to the food and music, and let your imaginations run wild.

Board Games

This is a great chance to relive the fun of your childhood by bringing out a beloved board game. You can each pick your favorite like Twister or Monopoly, or grab something brand new like chess. For something a little more intimate, consider a more adult-oriented games like Battle of the Sexes or An Enchanting Evening.

Dancing

First, you need to make the playlist. Get together with your date and pick out several songs from various genres, and maybe keep a couple of the songs secret from your date. Then, spend the evening in each other’s arms trying to dance the night away.

Breakfast in Bed

Do something a little different. Make breakfast for each other, and spend the evening cuddled up in bed maybe watching a romantic movie or listening to music.

Video Games

Play a variety of different games so you and your date can go crazy together. You can battle each other with Mario Kart and Kinect Sports, work off some energy with Dance Central 2 or work together with Little Big Planet. Just be sure to have fun, keep it light and don’t get too competitive.

Camping in the Backyard

Have a campout in the backyard. Go all out with a campfire, tent, lanterns and other equipment. Cook and eat under the stars while you enjoy the weather and each other’s company.

Talking

It sounds simple, but many times people don’t spend enough time just getting to know each other. If you need some help getting started, incorporate games like 20 questions, truth or dare or would you rather…? Sometimes just communicating with each other can make the best date ever.

Whatever you choose to do, make sure to keep it new and fresh. Alternate who is in charge of date night so that both sides always have something to look forward to. Don’t be afraid to try new things, and be sure to discuss what you liked and didn’t like so you can improve both your dates and your relationship.
