In recent times, dating has been a bit more difficult because we can't safely do the same activities that we used to. Life goes on, however, and all it takes is a little creativity to have date nights that are fun and safe. While it's easy to default to watching a movie at home on your favorite online streaming service, it's an activity that can get boring and predictable quite quickly.

The good news is you may have more options than you think when it comes to dating. Whether you and your partner want to shake things up or you're getting to know someone new a bit better, there are lots of ideas that are fun and might challenge you in a way that makes the date far more exciting. Here are the three best date night ideas for fun at home:

Board Game Night

While a night of playing board games might sound a little childish, it can be a surprisingly entertaining idea for a date. You might be surprised how much fun you can have when you both tap into your competitive side. You might also learn something about one another. Here are some fun and classic board games to include in your date night:

  • Monopoly
  • Sorry
  • Trivial Pursuit
  • Clue
  • Hungry Hungry Hippos

Plus, there are tons of other games to come out since then and are a riot to play. Some of them are based on popular television shows such as Battlestar Galactica and Black Mirror.

Tip: You can make the game a bit more exciting and adult by making a bet, like if the winner gets to choose what you have for dinner or what the next board game is!

Tasting Party for Two (Or More)

If you are a foodie or take pleasure in drinking wine, a tasting party might be a good idea. It also doesn't limit the evening to two people so you can even double date if you would prefer.

You can try a wine and food pairing night and try out some flavor combinations that you've never tried before. Or you can take it one step further and find out some flavor combinations that shouldn't work together but somehow do!

This can be the perfect opportunity for you to show each other which games you like the most and try out some games that you wouldn't have considered. Even if things don't work out with your date, you might discover some new favorite games.
