And, let’s be fair, when it comes to date ideas, both men and women don’t always hit the nail on the head.
One partner might be more daring, laid-back, sporty, crazy, or kinky than the other. Maybe arranging outings that you both can agree on is harder than taking away a puppy from a pile of sugar-induced kids while trying to get them into the van for their complete set of booster shots.
Hopefully, there’s something on this list that can help you impress your other half (or at least spark an idea).
EAT CHOCOLATE COVERED THINGS
Romantic: Chocolate covered strawberries – perhaps as a fondue
Kinky: Drizzle chocolate over each others bodies and lick
Unique: Chocolate covered bugs – will take some searching
Other Things to Eat…
Romantic: Bake, decorate, and then eat some cupcakes
Kinky: Eat sexy food off each other – other than chocolate
Unique: Eat sushi off a model
NOTE: If you want to look for #3, Google “Nyotaimori” for something possibly close to you. They are rare, so be prepared to drive and shell out a pretty penny.
Also, if you’re planning on some hanky-panky after eating, stay away from foods like beans, licorice, processed foods, tofu etc. Anything that can lower testosterone, cause gas, increase mucus, or leave you feeling bloated and BLEH.

TRY SOME AUDIO/VISUAL
Romantic: Attend a classical music concert in a park
Kinky: Go to a concert while wearing a long distance sex toy
Unique: Pick up a mic and go to karaoke
YOU CAN ALSO: go to a comedy club, binge Netflix, play video games, go to a drive-in etc.
HAVE SOME DRINKS
Romantic: Good, old-fashioned champagne
Kinky: Erotic drinks like “Bend Over Shirley”
Unique: Brave a strange shot, like “Live Minnow”
If you’re not into going out, buy some booze and play bartender at home. There are plenty of books or websites that teach you how to make all sort of fun drinks.
But if you want to leave the house, try a romantic bar hop, drink making course, wine tasting, or brewery tour.
LEARN SOMETHING NEW
Don’t underestimate the bonding power when you learn something with your partner.
It can be simple, like ice skating. Or, you can take a stab at painting classes – I hear some of them serve wine so you can get tipsy with each brush stroke.
But, (if you think your relationship can take it) try something difficult, like gourmet cooking or learning a new language (just the naughty bits).
Romantic: Dance lessons
Kinky: Shibari – Japanese rope tying lessons
Unique: Pole dancing lessons
GET THE BLOOD PUMPING
No, I don’t mean by doing THAT. Get your mind out of the gutter.
Well, I mean, you CAN do that to get the blood pumping if you want. However, doing other kinds of physical activities gets all sort of great, naturally produced chemicals coursing through your bodies.
Intense teamwork (for example with an obstacle course) is great for that bonding we talked about before.
Romantic: Go to an amusement park (kiss for the cameras)
Kinky: Join the Cupid’s Undie Run
Unique: Go skydiving (extra points if you’re naked)
YOU CAN ALSO TRY: braving a paintball game, playing sports, or taking a hike
DO SOMETHING FUN
Romantic: Hot air balloon ride
Kinky: Paint a nude picture (or take nude photos) of your partner
Unique: Get matching tattoos
NOT ENOUGH? You can rent your dream car, kiss (can take photos) in a photo booth, go to the zoo, play photo scavenger hunt, play truth or dare.
BE IN NATURE
There’s the ever-classic star gazing or sunrise watching (if you can stay up that late or get up that early). However, it’s even better when it’s outside and not from your living room window.
Grab a couple of sleeping bags, light a fire (if you live in an area that allows firepits). Make sure you have bug spray and something warm to drink … maybe laced with something strong to fight off a chill.
If you’re lucky enough to live within driving distance to a beach, definitely make time for an evening by the water.
Romantic: Take a walk along the beach
Kinky: Go skinny dipping … where people “might” see you
Unique: Grab a basket and go berry picking
NEED MORE IDEAS?
Join a murder mystery – With or without costumes is fine, but WITH is so much more fun.
Have a sexy scavenger hunt – Inside or outside doesn’t matter.
Just make sure it’s fun, sexy, romantic, or all of the above.
Go to a spa – It’s especially good if you both lead hectic lives and need to escape for a few hours. But, if spas are out of your price range, there are DIY recipes online. Give each other some blueberry facials and foot massages!
Make homemade coupons – You’ve seen these before. Make sure to have a mix of easy and bigger gesture. Also, make sure you’re willing to do each an every one.
Re-live your first date – If the first date was long ago, or if the situation isn’t possible to reenact, finding something close will be totally okay.
Make a living room fort – I don’t care how old someone gets. Making a pillow fort and watching movies with popcorn never gets old.
