Nothing is more relaxing than a coffee date. You also get time to sit and talk to each other and really deepen your bond.

Explore the city together 

Take a week off and head to a new city that you want to explore. Both of you deserve a little break after the hectic lives you live. So exploring the city 🏙️ together is not just fun but relaxing as well. 

You can click a few pictures, taste their signature dish, or try out different things, but you are going to have so much fun.

Stay in a cabin for a night

You could use a break, so rent a cabin in the woods 🪵 for a night and light the firewood! Let the fire keep you warm, and let the peace warm your hearts. Nothing is more thrilling, exciting, and romantic than staying in a cabin for a night.

Take a stroll

A walk by the beach, at the park 🏞️ or even in the city is a way to refresh you both! And I know you love the idea of walking with your hands held and your souls connected. You can even stop and eat an ice cream if you’d like, or even a cotton candy!

Watch a game together

Watch A Game Together

When it is the fall season, then there are going to be more games 🏐. So grab your snacks, prepare a cute setup, and sit in front of the television! Or you could also buy tickets to the game and cheer for your favorite team! Because couples who vibe together stay together.

Make apple cider doughnuts

I love apple cider doughnuts 🍩. Do you as well? Well, that is amazing! So head over to the nearest shop and buy a few donuts, which is pretty boring, isn’t it?

Then, you could go grocery shopping, but before that, you need to create a list and find a recipe! So go ahead and make your own apple cider doughnuts and enjoy!

Rent bikes

Another fun activity if you are a sporty person is you can always rent bikes 🚴 and ride in the city or wherever you like! Yes, nothing is more fun than riding together! Not only will you both have fun, but also you will burn a lot more calories than you intend to burn!

Since we have come this far, let’s take a look at a few questions to know more about your date if this is your first! Shall we begin?

  • Do you have any hobbies? If so, what are they?

  • Do you have any interesting stories that you would like to share?
  • Which place do you want to visit?

So, the above questions are just a few you could ask your date if you want to know about them. You could ask a few more, but make sure you don’t look like you are interrogating them; that’d be funny.


Go golfing 🏌️, my friends! If you are a person who loves sports, then golfing it is! Don’t worry if you don’t know anything about golf!
