Fun Weeknight Activities for Couples


It’s Monday! So exciting! Just kidding, I know Mondays are the worst. And after work, you may be looking for a little rest and relaxation with your significant other tonight. But before you turn on the TV, ask yourself, are the two of you really interacting? You may be sitting side by side, but staring into the abyss of reality television and sitcoms doesn’t allow for a ton of communication or bonding. Thinking up fun weeknight activities can be tough, but here are a few suggestions for a quiet night you can enjoy together.

  1. Play a Game: Pull out that board game from your game closet, grab some dominoes, or start a jigsaw puzzle together. It’ll bring out some friendly competition, and allow you to laugh, and talk. Even if you just have a pack of cards, you can have a great night. If you’re looking for a good card game, I would recommend Speed. It’s so much fun, and has the best chance of inducing victory dances.
  2. Go Outside: Engage in a physical activity together. Ride your bikes around town, go for an evening swim, or just take a walk around the block or at the local park together. Get your blood pumping together, and enjoy the endorphins. For more sexy and active ideas, check out this Nouveau Dating post
  3. Grab some Coffee: Or tea, depending on your caffeine sensitivity. Look up your local coffee shop, grab your honey, and enjoy a warm beverage together. Coffee shops are a great way to relax, while being away from your home. As a bonus, there is often an open mic, or local musicians performing. Just leave the laptop at home! It doesn’t count if you’re catching up on work together.
  4. Have a Dance Party in your Living Room: Move the furniture out of the way and learn a new dance! There are thousands of videos on how to ballroom dance together, from Two Step  to the Waltz . Learn the moves, play some music, and practice! It will allow some physical contact, and probably some initial giggles. Or, if ballroom isn’t your style, crank up some jams and dance it out! Get some of that tension out, and have a silly-move contest.
  5. Learn Something New: Chances are, there’s something out there that the two of you could be interested in learning together, so why not start now? Check out your local classifieds, studios, or even community colleges to see what classes are available. Or you could run to the local bookstore together, pick up a how-to book, and start learning. Maybe you have an undiscovered passion for photography or gardening. Learning together will be fun, and then you two would have a great new activity to share.
  6. Whip up Something Sweet: Dinner is served, but maybe you two could work together to make a dessert! Grab a recipe book, some ingredients, and set out to bake cookies, brownies, or even a pie. Baking is a great way to work together, and has a sweet reward at the end. Plus, there’s ample opportunity for sexy food fights in the process.

So there you have it, some fun and active ways to enjoy yourself without having to break your bank, or go crazy on a Monday night. Have any other ideas of fun weeknight activities?  Let me know in the comments section.
