You’ve been dating for a while now and while you’re still happy, it seems like some of the excitement just isn’t there anymore. Conversations seem more mundane and even dates begin to seem routine.
It’s a common phase for many couples, but it shouldn’t go unnoticed. Among many different solutions, some researchers suggest double dating as a possible answer for refueling the flame.
While some people consider double dating to be awkward or uncomfortable, new research suggests that going on a double date with friends may help your own personal relationship blossom. By discussing personal details about your life with other couples, you in turn become closer with your partner.
To ensure the best experience from your double date make sure to pick an activity that both couples will enjoy.
If you’re stumped on what to do, don’t fret; University 101 has some ideas that are both fun and engaging for you to do on your next double date.
The best thing about places like Six Flags and Disney World is that there are so many things to do. With so many options, it’s easier to please everyone’s needs. You can ride rides, eat food, and play games.
While there is less opportunity for talking at a concert, it’s still a super fun way to bond with other couples. And who doesn’t love dancing and singing along with some great music?
Lawn seats are even better. Not only are they cheaper than regular tickets, but it’s basically like having your own separate party at the concert.
Skating is a great way to “break the ice” with double dating.
You can stay close with your sweetie, but also get to know other people. Sure there may be some slips and slides along the way, but they’re sure to make for great laughs as well.
The great thing about arcades is that there are so many choices. Even though things like laser tag and mini-golf sound kind of cheesy, it’s so much fun when you do it as a group.
When you’re finished, you can grab a drink and snack at the concessions stand.
Have a little friendly competition when couples go head to head. Games are super fun but also a great conversation starter. Play cards, play catchphrase, or even play a board game, the choice is yours.
Who doesn’t like bonding over free food? Make it a potluck and tell your friends to bring a side dish of their choice. Then put the hotdogs and hamburgers on the grill, turn up the music, and get ready for a good time.
Whatever you decide to do for your double date remember to have a good time. Use this experience to develop not only your relationship with your sweetie, but also your relationships with other people.
