Finding the love of your life is an amazing feeling – but where do you go from there? Keeping the fire alive is an important skill to know within your relationship, and embarking on new hobbies together is a big part of that.
1. Cooking Classes
There’s something extremely sensual about cooking with your hands – and eating a delicious meal at the end is the perfect way to end a date night. This helps you build up not just kitchen skills, but teamwork as well.
2. Dancing classes
There’s nothing like hitting a random club with bae and having all the sizzling moves that make onlookers take notice. Whether it’s salsa, tango, or even the bachata, there are tons of vibrant ways for you to connect with your lover over some spicy music.
3. Couples Bowling
Even if you’re not a die-hard bowling fan, this is a great way to get out in your community and potentially socialize with other couples for a group date. If you’re getting cabin fever, this is a great option.
This will save you money when it comes to herbs and other fresh ingredients, as well as bringing you closer together in a way that uses your hands and connects you to the earth, not unlike cooking.
Workout classes might be fun, but you’re listening to the instructor, not to each other. Hiking allows you to soak in Mother Nature while unplugging and reconnecting with each other.
6. Start a travel blog
Even if it’s just about short weekend trips that the two of you take together, document it! You can chronicle your Airbnb adventures, or that time you went extreme camping. Writing and reflecting on shared experiences and photos will also bring you closer together.
7. Sip n’ Paint class
It really doesn’t matter whether you’re creative or not – painting can be very fun, especially when drunk.
8. DIY Thrift Store Flips
Think less bedazzling old granny sweaters, and more refinishing old dressers into something stylish. Many couples are buying old and underwhelming items at flea markets or thrift stores, then turning them into DIY projects. Make some extra cash, and enjoy hands on projects with bae.
9. Learn a new language
This is a tough one that can really pay off in the end, and even help kickstart your travel blog. Learning to say I Love You in many different ways is one thing, but so is being able to pick up and go to another country, feeling comfortable in another language.
Unless one of you hates boating, this is a gorgeous (but seasonal) way to float along a lazy river while you stare into each other’s eyes. You can pull over and have a picnic on a grassy patch, or snack right from your canoe.
