7 Original Date Night Ideas for Couples

Even in the best of relationships, sometimes you find yourself stuck in a kind of a rut, and before you know it, every other date night becomes a Netflix and chill type of night. And while being casual about some of your date nights is perfectly ok, necessary even, there is no need to make a habit of this. In every good relationship, it is crucial to shake things up a bit, the more often the better. It is true that sometimes real life and obligations get in the way of romance, and fun and sexy times, which is why you need to make a conscious effort to keep the romance from fizzling out and make date nights fun again. To that end, here are not one, not two, but seven spicy, sultry and fun ideas you can use to spice up your love life.

Fairytales Are Not Just for the Silver Screen

There is a reason why old-school romance is called old-school; it has been around for ages and it does the trick. Dinner and dancing might sound like something that previous generations used to do, but we could stand to use some of their dating tips and tricks because they truly knew how to do romance right; so, the next time you feel like staying in your sweats and ordering in, resist the lazy urge, put on your finest clothes, and make a reservation at a fancy restaurant. After that, find a great club with the kind of music you and your significant other love, and dance like you are in the magical set of La La Land. There is no reason why magic has to be reserved for romantic comedies when you can bring it to your life.

Spice Up Your Life

When you have been in a relationship for some time now, and you know your partner very well, your sex life can become a bit, well, routine-y. You know each other’s every move, your preferred positions, and it seems like a no-frills kind of time. And while the familiar is a sign of true intimacy, there is a fine line between being comfortable and being stuck in a rut; so, in the words of Spice Girls, it is time to get spicy in the bedroom, and do not worry, there is no actual chilli involved. However, perhaps it is time for you two to go from too familiar to complete strangers. Adopt fake identities, make up new names, meet at a bar and try to seduce one another pretending you have never seen each other before. Role-playing and wearing costumes, whether they are firefighters, cheerleaders, flight attendants, can do wonders when it comes to shedding your inhibitions and taking your sex life to a whole new level.

Get This Party Started

Sometimes in relationships we can spend a bit too much time with only one another, so it is good for you as a couple and good for your friendships to mingle a little every now and then – and what better way than to throw a party together – and not just any party – do not throw just any kind of party, but a game-night type of party. Get some glow stick cups, play beer pong or different kinds of drinking games. And who knows, perhaps when the guests leave, it is time for the actual party to start. So, when going shopping for party favours and supplies, do not forget to throw a pack of condoms into your shopping cart as well.


Spoil Each Other…

When it comes to spoiling each other, perhaps the first things that come to mind are gifts and shopping. This is not what we have in mind although small tokens of appreciation are always welcome. This idea of pampering, however, involves something a bit more personal, intimate and sensual. Book a couple’s massage and enjoy the strong hands of professionals while listening to soothing music and feeling how all the tension of everyday stress is fading away.

Or Make It an Intimate Affair

An option that is even better and more sensual than booking a massage is giving each other massages on date night. You might not be able to do it as well as a professional masseur would, but there are other perks. Setting the mood is not that difficult; all you need is some good massage oil, scented candles, and who knows – a massage can turn into one of the most enticing foreplay. Just make sure to blow out the candles before you get too carried away.

Take a Walk on the Wild Side

If you are not familiar with room odourisers, it is time to get exploring. Even the hottest of couples can use a little helping hand, and if you are looking for something a bit kinkier, this is something you should definitely try. It will arouse all your senses, which will not only put you and your partner in the sexiest mood of your life on your date night, the end result will be a sensation you will never forget.

Get Away

Sometimes, the best thing you can do for your relationship is taking it to a different place, literally. Take the time, even if just for a weekend getaway and your partner will love you even more for it. Not only do couples have a tendency to fall in love all over again when in a foreign place, but there are actual studies claiming that couples who travel together enjoy a better sex life, so book a ticket as soon as possible and show your partner the world, and have a date night somewhere unique.

    How about tying on a silk blindfold and taking her to a swingers club. The idea of swingers clubs being somehow sleazy and full of dirty old men is very outdated. The majority of today’s swingers clubs are modern & clean and provide a safe environment for couples to have as much fun as they like. No one has to join in anything they don’t wish to and often couples will enjoy the sexy atmosphere and friendly chat without going any further. This will get them “in the mood” before going home and can add a whole new dimension to their sex lives.

      That’s a great idea for a date night, as long as both couples are up for it. There are many great swingers parties happening in the UK and around the world. One of the best ways to find them is to slip into some Facebook groups that are into this sort of thing and members will share the locations and information for these fun parties.

    I think going to musical concerts are a great idea. I went to the Sam Smith concert in Manchester not too long ago with the Mrs It was a night to remember. We booked a hotel and the whole evening was perfect. Musically Sam got us in the mood, and the drinks were flowing all night. By the time we got back to the hotel room, we were ready for action. Boy, would you have loved to be a fly on the wall that night. ?

    I think dance events or classes are great. Just turn up and dance with whoever is there. Blues, salsa, jazz, cajun events are great to go as a couple where you can do something different and out of the norm. They are not too expensive either and will give you good practice for the future. U never know when you will need the skills. Maybe to impress at a wedding or christening?
