Lockdown Date Ideas

With quarantine measures constantly shifting and social distancing becoming the new normal, 2020 has brought about a new set of challenges for both the singles-ready-to-mingle and the young-and-in-love alike. But love always finds a way! In this digital age, it’s easier than ever to form a connection over the internet. We’re helping you keep date nights going with our list of online dating dates and activities for couples!

1. Netflix Party

The arrival of the rainy season has only served to remind us that the cold nights snuggled up on the couch watching TV have to wait. Those rain clouds have a silver lining though! What the lockdown has given us is more time to catch up on our TV backlog. With Netflix Party, you can still Netflix and chill in a private chat room seamlessly integrated into the webplayer. Get the extension on Google Chrome.

2. 40 Must-Answer Questions for All Couples

Just because you can’t spend the evening at a fancy restaurant doesn’t mean you can’t connect. These 40 questions help you and your partner get to know each other more from your superpower fantasies to childhood dreams. There’s guaranteed to be a few surprises in store, whether you’re seeing a Bumble bae or a long-term beau. Call up your SO on Zoom, and get to asking! Check the questions out here.

3. Virtual Museum Tour

This date idea’s for all the art-loving couples out there! Holding hands while strolling down museum halls, admiring the artwork, may be out of the question now, but you can still recreate that sensation at home. The Google Arts & Culture website is filled to the brim with virtual tours of museums, temples, and more! They’ve even added augmented reality segments and 360 videos for an even more immersive experience.

4. Kitchen Experiments

For the couples stuck in quarantine together, the repetitive meals might be getting a bit stale. Mix it up! Grab some canned goods or something that’s been gathering ice in the freezer, and whip something new up together. We even have a bunch of recipes and hacks and cooking classes you can try out. Your first attempt might not be quite restaurant-quality depending on, but hey, it’s the journey, not the destination!

5. Island Tour

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has just recently become the second-best selling game on the Nintendo Switch with 22.4 million copies sold worldwide and the second-best selling game of all time in Japan with more than 7.5 million copies sold. This is for good reason. ACNH provides the escape from lockdown people have been craving for months. It’s also a great medium for online dates! You can have a picnic, run on the beach, walk around a museum, and so much more in your own little, lovingly crafted world. It also gives you a never-ending supply of adorable couple photos you can take with your partner!

6. Connect Through Music

If you’re the type of couple that loves to drive around just listening to music or if you’re the type of couple at the corner of every Starbucks sharing a pair of earphones, this is perfect for you. A lucky few have access to the Spotify Group Session beta. The rest of us, though, can still enjoy a private listening session with our loved one via the JQBX website. You can listen to the same music while you work or study at home, and it’s like coffee shop dates never stopped.

7. Healthy Competition

There’s nothing like some competition to spice things up! Jackbox and its many packs provide a bevy of board games and trivia games brought to a virtual space. Download it on Steam or your console’s game store, and you can compete with your SO, whether you’re in the same living room or miles away. For a free alternative, you can also check out our list of 15 must-try online games!

8. Living Space Tours

Got yourself a quarantine fling? Well, you can tell a lot about somebody just by seeing their living space. Facetime your new love interest and give each other a tour. You can also make it a show-and-tell! Meaningful memorabilia, favorite shirt, house pets—you decide. And if you like what you see, you can even go ahead with those 40 questions!
