Fun Things To Do With Your Girlfriend
Girls today expect more from the apple of their eyes, the one man they’re hoping to spend the rest of their lives with. When it comes to dates, they want something more exciting and out of the ordinary. If you’re the kind of guy who still hooked on clichéd boring dates, well, you’ve got to find a girlfriend who’s pretty much into dull and boring things like you are. But if you’re ready to spice things up, then get ready to be blown away by these 20 fun activities you can do together with your girlfriend.
1. Indulge In A Couples Massage
This may not be your idea of “fun” but believe us, it will be well worth it. Imagine lying down with your girlfriend on another massage table beside you. Aromatherapy essential oils fill the room while soothing music plays in the background. It’s not fun, but it is relaxing and comforting. Of course, if you’re not a fan of massage, then you can always try other services that the spa provides. The point here is that you and your lady will feel more refreshed afterwards.
2. Visit Each Other’s Hometowns
If both of you grew up in the same neighborhood, then you can skip this activity. But if you came from different hometowns, why not pay each other’s birthplaces a visit? You will gain a much deeper understanding of the life of your loved one before you met each other. It’s an exciting adventure that can be quite romantic, too. Both of you will have an idea of each other’s roots. With any luck, you’ll come out of this activity feeling more love for your girl.
3. Whip Up Your Own Couple’s Signature Dish
Each of us has our own favorite dish. You may have yours and she may have hers. So, why not create something new? You don’t need to be a master chef to be a star in your kitchen. The mere fact that you will be preparing the dish together is something a lot more meaningful than any fancy dinner at a restaurant. Plan together the ingredients that you want to use and how best to cook them. Moreover, it’s important to have a unique name for your dish. After all, we’d all love to create something that can represent our best efforts together.
4. Go On A Hitchhiking Adventure
Would you rather take a single yet lengthy ride to your destination or do it in segments and with different rides? Not everyone may agree with hitchhiking. However, the fact that you’ll be doing it with your girl makes it more exciting. You’ll be riding along with good-natured motorists who can tell you fascinating stories along the way to your next stop. And then another helpful motorist comes along. By the end of your journey, you would’ve already met several people with interesting stories that you and your girl can share.
5. Watch A Foreign Language Comedy Without Subtitles
Instead of watching the usual movie, why not try a foreign language film that doesn’t have any subtitles to it? If you’re up for it, we’d suggest going for a comedy film and try to create your own dialogue. It’s a fun way to share a lazy afternoon with your girlfriend. Plus, you’ll also get to find out how quick you and your girl are when it comes to dubbing. After the film, you can choose which one has the best punch line for the movie.
6. Do A Pub Crawl
Most couples have a favorite watering hole. Well, how about we change that a bit? Go on a bar hop or pub crawl. Whatever you wish to call it, the essence is still the same. You go from one bar to another. There’s only one rule: limit your drinks to a single serving of liquor or any beverage. Once you’re done with a glass, then it’s time to head to another bar. At the end of the activity, you can exchange notes and figure out which of the bars you’ve visited appealed most to both of you.
7. Sing Your Favorite Duet Songs In Karaoke
It’s okay if you don’t have the voice of a pop music icon. What’s important here is for both of you to sing together. You can try Islands in the Stream, Cruisin’, or Don’t Know Much. Of course, you’re welcome to learn more about your girl’s favorite songs. As for the venue, you can head to a local karaoke club or buy a few of those karaoke DVDs to play at home. Either way, you’ll be singing to each other’s heart.
8. Recreate A Scene From Your Favorite Film
Almost every girl we’ve met wanted to be in the shoes of Rose in the film “Titanic”. Well, if your girlfriend happens to love the movie, too, why not recreate any of the scenes by becoming diCaprio’s Jack. Fancy the scene on the ship’s bow? How about that steamy scene in the 1912 Renault 35CV? Or the time when Jack was charcoal painting Rose’s now-famous pose on the couch? Well, the good news is that there are many films and scenes to choose from. So take your pick.
9. Enjoy A Movie Marathon
Everyone loves a good movie. For most girls, a tearjerker will almost always make them want to hold onto their boyfriends tight. Guys, on the other hand, prefer action, suspense, and thriller. There’s no need to be selfish here. Here’s the deal. Each of you gets to pick an equal number of your favorite movies. Both of you will watch these films. And as you enjoy the movies, you’ll get to know your girl a lot better.
10. Take Pottery Classes
Have you ever watched the 1990 film Ghost? Can you remember the scene where Molly was spinning the potter’s wheel while Sam embraces her from the back? It’s one of those unforgettable scenes that some films have tried to duplicate in recent years. Holding the hands of your girlfriend while molding and shaping a lump of clay is nothing short of romantic. Plus, you get to bring home an item that both of you made.
11. Take Dance Classes
If you’re already a pro on the dance floor, you can skip this part. However, if you’ve never danced tango or waltz before, why not give it a try. There’s a certain elegance in the way people dance in the traditional sense of the word. And with your girl in your arms, there’s no better way to strengthen that bond than through dancing. Try jazz, tap, salsa, Bachata, and the other dance types. Who knows? You’ll discover a talent that you can showcase to the rest of the world.
12. Make Each Other’s Whimsical T-Shirts
Both of you will rummage through your closet and look for a t-shirt that you’re no longer using. Give a t-shirt to each other and try to come up with a more creative and fun way to “rejuvenate” each other’s apparel. Not only is this fun, it also fosters friendship which is crucial in a boy-girl relationship. Once you’re done, you can wear these shirts whenever you go out. So, get those art materials ready and crank up your imaginative spirit.
13. Recreate The Special Day When You First Met
This can be a bit tricky if you happen to have a serious case of forgetfulness. But, if you do get it right, your girl is yours forever. If you can recreate the different circumstances on how the two of you met, you’re sure to score big time in her heart. This means you hold this day as something very significant in your life. Ladies love it when their man remembers the tiniest details of their romance.
14. Check Out Botanical Gardens
Modern women still love flowers. But instead of bringing her a bouquet of her favorite blooms, we recommend taking her to a botanical garden. There should be one nearby so you don’t have to spend too much time getting to and from the place. Botanical gardens can provide a very relaxing atmosphere for couples in love. There’s fresh air that fills your lungs while holding your girl’s hands. You cannot get any more romantic than this. You can also try the arboretum as the shade from the canopy can make your stroll a lot more pleasant.
15. Volunteer At A Nursing Home
For some, volunteering on a worthwhile endeavor doesn’t look like fun at all. But this gives you the chance to gauge your partner’s ability to establish social relationships with other people. It also gives you an idea about what she cares for in this world. If you volunteer at a nursing home, you’ll have a basic understanding of how she is with the elderly. Maybe you can also meet an elderly couple there who can serve as an inspiration for both of you.
16. Go Camping
The best part about going camping is that you’ll have your girlfriend all to yourself. To make this more worthwhile, leave any communications device at home. While technologies can help you avoid getting lost at the campsite, you don’t need these distractions when all your girl wants to have is you. In choosing a campsite, it’s best to look for a place that is accessible for both of you. It should also have mechanisms in place should there be any emergency during camping.
17. Take On A Home Improvement Project
It doesn’t matter whose house you want to “improve” on. It could be your pad or her place. The important thing here is for both of you to find something to do together. Paint the fence or apply a new coat on the window frames. Plant flowering and ornamental plants to improve the aesthetics of your place. Don’t be afraid to have a little fun while tackling a project. Paint on each other’s backs while you’re at it.
18. Go On An Adventure Date
There are many adventure dates that you can try with your girlfriend. Experience the thrill of jumping off a high bridge before being recoiled back up like a ball at the end of an elastic band. Take your girl on a skydiving or paragliding adventure. If she’s afraid of heights, then perhaps water adventures might do the trick. Whitewater rafting is always a good idea. Canoeing and coasteering are also great choices. Whatever adventure you choose, make sure that your girl is fit for it. You don’t want her suffering a heart attack when you shoot a Class III rapids.
19. Adopt A Rescue Dog Or Cat
Tens of thousands of rescue dogs and cats are put down every year. This is because there aren’t enough people who can play the role of these animals’ pet parents. If you’re already living with your girlfriend, adopting a rescue dog or cat seems like the next best thing to having actual babies. The responsibilities of pet parenthood are somewhat similar to raising babies and children. Think of it as a chance for you to test whether you have the skills necessary to become a father and a husband at the same time.
20. Brew Your Own Booze At Home
If you and your girl are lovers of beer, skip the usual stuff that you buy from the grocery. Try investing in a good craft beer brew kit so you will have the chance to make your own right at home. The best part of this, of course, is that you’ll get to share the process of crafting your own beer with your loved one. There’s no telling you might come up with a brand-new flavor of IPA or a Rauchbier. The point here is for you to make the kind of beer than you can enjoy together.
There are thousands of activities that you can do with your girlfriend together. The important thing to keep in mind is that both of you will find pleasure in what you do. Moreover, the activity should further strengthen your love for one another.
