In the age of Netflix, it seems like couples spend a lot of time binge-watching TV together, or just lounging around the house on their phones.
If you’re like me, you want to go out and actually do things; have fun. My fiance and I love to go out and do things, or stay at home and have fun without the TV once in a while. Going on adventures together can make relationships so much more exciting.
In case you’re in need of ideas or inspiration, here’s a list of 40 fun things to do with your significant other, instead of just hanging out or watching TV!
1. Watch the sunrise or sunset.
2. Cook or bake together. (Try creating a new recipe together!)
3. Take a nice, long, relaxing bubble bath. (Maybe with some chocolates and wine!)
4. Play games. (Video games and/or board games!)
5. Have a picnic.
6. Exercise together. (Not just going to the gym or lifting weights. You can hike, ride bikes, go swimming, etc.)
7. Go wine tasting.
8. Go to a museum or art gallery.
9. Go camping.
10. Give each other a massage. (Or have an all-out at-home spa day!)

On a more serious note: whatever you choose to do, just enjoy your time together and try to cherish the moments that you have with your spouse (or boyfriend, fiance, girlfriend, etc.). Date nights aren’t always realistic for every couple – whether you’re busy with your kids, your jobs, or whatever it is. So make the most out of every chance you get to have fun with your partner! Even if you don’t have enough time to do anything on this list, make sure you DO value the time you have together. 🙂
