My Darling Husband and I do a surprise date once a month.  One of us plans a date for each other, but doesn’t tell the other what we’re doing and we alternate months. It has to be an activity, but it can be anything.  It’s actually really fun because part of the fun is wondering where we are going. We have done cooking classes, glass blowing classes, painting classes, day trips to small towns with good shops and breweries, brewery tours and a some other things.  Def check groupon because that’s where a lot of these ideas have come from.   It can be as simple as going on a hike and it doesn’t have to be all day.

Are there conservation areas nearby with walking/hiking trails? Bring a camera, get some nice nature shots and some fresh air :). Maybe do a picnic?

@ash064:  +1


@LadyBear:  I was going to say the same activities as ash064, in addition to comedy shows and live music. SO and I went to a winefest in VA last year and we had so much fun!

@fuzzle79:  I LOVE this idea! Borrowing it 🙂

@LadyBear:  We do the bowling thing, too. What I’ve been wanting to do lately, as a “date”, is to start walking the expansive nature preserve by our place 🙂

Hmm, the only thing I can come up with is geocaching. 


Oh, I just remembered something. I work in real estate and Boyfriend or Best Friend wants to buy a house within the next two to three years so we have developed a little game.


We’ll get in the car and just drive around, looking at houses that are for sale. It’s fun to see what kind of houses are available and it’s also fun to see what BF’s taste is when it comes to buying houses.


We also will be just driving along on our way to do something else and we’ll suddenly say to each other “Hmm, I like that house” or “I don’t like that house” whenever we drive past a house. 


We also like to get up early sometimes on Saturday and check out the local yard sales. I don’t know if this will work for you because you may find it boring. But we always have fun! 🙂

  • Cook at home, put a lit candle on the table, eat dinner
  • Pack some food, go somewhere nice like a park and have a picnic on the grass (bring something to sit on then) or on a bench
  • Play games: cards, Scrabble, video games, etc. My husband and I are addicted to Fortune Street (video game)…it’s kind of like Monopoly but more fun.
  • Browsing yard sales like a previous poster mentioned
  • Hanging out in the bookstore
  • Get into gardening together…it’s possible even in a small apartment

My H is an uber fit person.  He is going to be good at every activity we do and I will never ever be at his level – even though I’m a pretty active person.  He cannot swim though, so I got that on him!  LOL

Yesterday we went for a 10 mile mountain bike ride and he was kind of doing laps like a dog would do.  I was also very cloudy from my allergies so jus not in peak performance basically.  I have to really LEARN to be OK with it honestly.  Just enjoy being outside, with your man, and that’s it.  Appreciate you have two legs that can allow you to do these things.  These things help me get out of the funk that I’m a slow poke!

I say keep up with the activities, especially hiking.  I do not know how anyone could be “bad” at hiking.  It’s just walking!  If it’s super hard for you (you get out of breath) then that means you need to do it more – if you enjoy it.  Some sports are not weekend hobbies, you kind of need to get in shape for them.  So keep it up!  Hiking is great – you can bring a lunch together, and sit down at a scenic spot to talk.  Don’t decline just because he’s a faster hiker.  If you like it, keep doing it.

Other things my H and I do together, we VOLUNTEER.  We go on trips that help people with disabilities or wounded veterans get into the outdoors.  We’re leaving for a 4 night raft trip this week in fact.  This non-profit also has tons of day activities too.  We also volunteer for my local dog rescue agency by helping with fundraisers.
