Long-distance dating can be a lot of fun, but it can also be challenging at times. Not being able to be in the same room as each other can be tough, and Zoom date nights can get a bit samey after a while.
Thankfully it is possible to jazz up a video date; you just need to get creative. Here are five fun long-distance date ideas you can try (and none of them will break the bank, so you can keep saving up to visit each other!).
1. Fun Long Distance Date Ideas: Play 20 Questions
20 Questions is a great way to have fun with someone else – and you don’t need to meet in person to play! So think of a thing, a place or a person, and then the other person can ask 20 yes or no questions to work out what you thought of. This game can result in a lot of laughs, and it is also a great way to find out more about the person you are dating.
2. Take A Walk Together (Kind Of)
Your crush may not live in the same city as you, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t explore your favorite spots with you. So find out when they are free for a Zoom date, and then plan a walk around your city to show them all the places you love. This is a great way to get closer to each other, and then they can also show you their hometown on the next Zoom date.
3. Use Houseparty To Play Games
Houseparty is a free video app that allows you to play games with other people on the app. You and your date can download the app and use it to play guessing games, trivia games and drawing games. This is a simple way to make date night more interesting, and there are lots of games to check out, so this should make dates more interesting for the foreseeable future!
4. Use Netflix Party To Host A Movie Night
You can also use Netflix Party to throw a virtual movie night. You just need to download the Google Chrome extension, and then you can synch video playback so you and your date can watch the same film together. This is great as it means you can simultaneously pause the film to make a joke or chat, which really makes it feel like you are watching the film in the same room together.
5. Clean Up Together
Finally you could consider cleaning up together. This may not feel particularly exciting, but in reality tidying is an important cornerstone in most relationships. So by tidying together, you will strengthen your bond – and you will also discover which jobs you both hate and love, which could be useful for the future!
