20 Rainy Day Date Ideas
Have you ever had great plans for a date with your special someone, only to have the weather turn bad on you? Having a date messed up by the weather can be a real bummer, but the date does not have to be a complete loss. There are still plenty of fun things you can do and still have that date. Picnics and walks in the park may be canceled and a trip to a theme park or the beach may be out of the question, but there are still plenty of options that you can choose from:
Arcades. Most towns have arcades or similar spots where for a few dollars you can go and have fun. Try and win your special someone some prizes, and maybe see if there are any special events going on.
Roller rink. Strapping on a pair of roller skates can be a fun experience and it can also be a good trust building exercise- nothing says trust like relying on someone to catch you if you start to fall.
Get cultured. Visiting museums, theater performances, and the like can be a nice and romantic date. Share your interests with each other and learn something new along the way.
Get artsy. A rainy day can be a great chance to get in touch with your creative side. Try working on a painting together, play some instruments together if you are both musically inclined, or work on a writing project together.
Go shopping. This doesn’t mean run up the charge card and have the guy sit all day waiting for you. Find places where you both will enjoy just browsing- book stores, art stores, and any other place where you both share a hobby, passion, or love.
Relive old memories. If you have been together for a while, look through some old photos of the two of you. Or pull out the family albums and relive your own history with your special someone.
Tub time. Enjoying a nice soak in the hot tub, or a romantic bubble bath with some scented candles can be a great way to spend a cold and dreary day.
People watching. Go to the mall or some other place where lots of people gather, grab a coke or an ice cream to share, and just watch all the people and enjoy some time together.
Enjoy the rain. There is something to be said for a romantic afternoon, snuggled together under the covers, listening to the rain falling outside.
Indoor picnic. Don’t let the rain ruin your picnic, instead have one indoors! Spread a blanket on the ground, make up some finger foods, and put some nice music on to play and you have the perfect indoor date.
Video games. Whether you both like shooter games like Call of Duty or RPG games like Final Fantasy, you can still enjoy some game time together. Classics like Rock Band, Wii Sports, and many more are great games to enjoy a nice afternoon together.
Make out. Simple yet oh so much fun. Do not forget the simple things that made you both fall in love with each other.
Play photographer. Even if you are not a pro, it can be a lot of fun to snap pictures of each other. Make some collages of the pictures you take and make some great memories together.
Movie marathons. Do you both like movies such as Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, or other big series movies? Have yourself a marathon and watch all of your favorite movies back to back. It can be a great way to spend the day and enjoy the company of your loved one.
Book-Worm it. If you both are book lovers, try snuggling up b y the fireplace or under the covers enjoying some good books. Read your own books or take turns reading from the same book out loud.
Chill out. There is nothing wrong with simply relaxing the day away. Don’t feel like getting out of bed or changing out of your pajamas? Then don’t. Spend the day in bed, relax in your PJ’s and have a chill day to yourselves.
Board games. Make it a board game day. If normal board games seem a bit bland, then try to shake things up a little – strip poker or twister anyone?
Be the chef. Work a little culinary magic in the kitchen together. Even if neither of you are that great at it, it can still be a great time and you may be surprised by the results.
Go walking. There is something romantic about walking in the rain. Remember all of those movie scenes of kissing in the rain? Well now you can make your very own special movie moment. A little rain never hurt anyone.
Have sex. Enough said right?
