Quarantine Date Ideas

Quarantine Date Ideas

Dating is never easy, but it’s even harder when you can’t actually be with someone due to the self-quarantine. But that doesn’t mean you have to wait months for the self-isolation to end before you can find love, or go out on a date with someone you’ve were seeing before the lock-down.

Here are some ideas for dates you can have under quarantine, even if you’re not quarantining together, courtesy of Travel + Leisure.

Host a virtual movie night 

Thanks to Netflix Party, you and your potential mate can enjoy a movie or TV show “together,” and it even allows you to group chat while watching.

Have a personality quiz date

What better way to get to know each other than taking a personality quiz to find out whether you’re really compatible. You can take the tests privately and then discuss the results with each other.

Psychologists have offered a host of tips for how to maintain a healthy and happy long-term partnership. Among them: Don’t show contempt. Don’t threaten divorce. Listen actively. Compromise. And Positive Illusions, where you overlook the bad things about your partner and focus on the good.

Go on a QuaranDate

If you’re looking for a new love, sign up for a QuaranDate, where you’ll be matched with a compatible person via a video call hosted by a neutral third party. If it works, great, if not, you can click out of the call at any time.

Stage a video cooking competition and home tour

Since you can cook for each other, why not cook at home but at the same time, so you can share the experience together virtually. You can even pick one food and see who comes up with the better dish. And while on that virtual call, you can add a little tour of your home for the fun of it.

Create a schedule and a safe space.  You need a schedule for life, work, the kids, and yes - intimacy.  If you have no routine you will not be happy and your relationships will suffer.  A safe space is crucial too as we ALL require a place that is just ours, somewhere that we can go to and be uninterrupted.  A space to create, rest, dream, and escape even if it's just for a few minutes.

Create a date in a box

Ship your love a box full of things they’ll need for a perfect date, then buy the same things for yourself and share the experience together.

Take it off screen

Once stay-at-home orders are lifted, plan an in-person, yet socially-distanced date to be safe. You can do things like hike, play tennis or even have a picnic while still remaining a safe six-feet apart. 

Touch, Plan and Play.  If you're healthy, physical touch is theraputic on so many levels.  Then take time to plan future vacations and what you'll do together post-rona.  And don't forget to play! Be a kid, maybe even with your kids, laugh, smile, dream, escape reality and play a little bit each day.
