Finding someone you adore is a rare and beautiful experience. It also opens up a world of possibilities for both of you. Think about all of the fun activities that, for whatever reason, you could never do as a single person. Now you can! If you’re looking for ideas, here are five cute things to do as a couple.
1. Wear Matching Clothes
You know those adorable matching couple’s clothes? Few things feel better than actually being able to wear a pair. Doing so shouts to the world that the two of you are together, not to mention that it gives you guys a personal physical connection. After all, if you’re matching through dialogue on your clothes, your outfits probably won’t make sense unless you’re together. Luckily, there are also options for people that don’t want to be too ostentatious. You could use the same pattern or even wear matching underwear!
2. Write Letters
Even if neither of you are particularly adept at writing, composing letters to each other can be incredibly romantic. It’s often difficult to express how you truly feel in the moment. Writing a letter about your feelings may convey this sentiment with more clarity. Don’t worry – it doesn’t need to be the most serious prose ever written. In fact, it might be even better if you write it with a casual tone. This ensures that everything you wrote sounds more like your own words. You can even add in a few jokes! Just remember to stay honest and romantic.
3. Have a Double Date
Now that you have an amazing partner, you can finally go on the ever-popular double date. With any luck, you have a close friend that’s also romantically involved. It’ll be even better if you guys enjoy hanging out with your friend’s partner. If this is the case, set up a double date! You’ll be able to talk about couple things with people who understand. Since there are at least four individuals involved, you’ll want to think of an activity or location that has widespread appeal. Dinner at a popular restaurant is usually a safe bet. All that’s left is to set up a time and enjoy the experience.
4. Do a Romantic Stereotype
This one may sound silly, but it’s perfect for hopeless romantics everywhere! Think about your favorite romantic stereotypes. This could be anything from horseback riding on the beach to kissing on a Ferris wheel. If you’re having trouble thinking of one, look back on your favorite romantic movie moments. Once you guys choose an activity, go all out with it. Don’t partake in the stereotype with shame! You two have earned this opportunity, so have fun with it.
5. Take a Dance Class
You two can wax poetic to each other all day, but few things bring people together like physical movement. An excellent example of this is dance. Moving together, whether terribly or not, can be incredibly connective. There are also numerous forms of dance to choose from! The most obvious one for couples is ballroom dance, although that form has numerous subgenres. This includes the rhumba, tango, foxtrot, waltz, and many more. If you want to branch out from this style, you can get creative with contact improvisation. This dance form creates intimacy and trust between the dancers (although you may want to do it on a mat).
Taking the effort to do these activities may seem tiresome, but you’ll probably find the outcome to be worth it. Not only can a couple’s activity be enjoyable, but it may also bring you two closer together. Stay adventurous and have fun in your relationship!
