Lockdown Valentine’s Day Date Ideas

Dating has definitely been much more difficult during the multiple tims we’ve been in lockdown over the last 11 months, but it doesn’t need to stop completely.

If you’re looking for some date ideas this Valentine’s Day, we’ve got you covered!

 

Chat on the phone.

We get so used to texting or messaging on multiple apps, that we don’t connect with each other like we used to, especially now we rely on this technology more than ever at the moment.

Chatting on the phone is a great way to either see if you’ve got chemistry if you’ve not met yet, or if you’re already seeing each other or in a relationship it’s a great way to feel a bit closer to each other whilst being apart for so long.

 

Watch a movie or TV show you love.

With the cinemas being closed during lockdown, we need to think of alternative ways to watch things together.

You can recommend movies or TV shows to each other and have a discussion about it, or watch it simultaneously. You can have a video chat at the same time, or compare notes during or after. It gives you something to chat about and something to bond over.

 

Have a romantic candlelit dinner.

There’s no reason not to still have that romantic candlelit dinner this Valentine’s Day!

Schedule a time where you can both cook a meal together or order takeaway and sit down and eat with one another over a video call. Things are very different this Valentine’s Day but there are still ways to be romantic.

 

Play games together.

There are plenty of online games you can play together. Whether you both own the same console and can connect through games on there, or whether you want to play something online like Geoguessr where you have to race to find out where in the world you have been placed.

 

Write each other letters.

If you’d rather not involve technology sometimes, writing letters are a great way to communicate, even if it is a bit slower!

It’s a much more personal way of communicating with each other and you could even send each other little gifts you think they would like.

 

If you’ve yet to meet the man of your dreams in time for Valentine’s Day, get yourself on Gay Adult Chat and get chatting to singles from all over the UK on our great phone chat or mobile dating services today!

How You Can Still Date Whilst Social Distancing

Dating might have taken a back seat for a lot of people, as it’s not been the most important thing over the last few months. As we’re ever so slightly getting back to some sort of normality, how can you start dating again whilst keeping to social distancing rules?

There are a number of ways you can still have dates and see if you have that special connection with the other person.

Here are just a few ideas to try if you want to get yourself back out there and start dating again.

A video call date

This is a great place to start before you decide to meet, as you can get an idea of whether you think the spark is there and whether you would actually like to meet up. You can gauge someone’s reactions and their tone and see their facial expressions.

Watch the same movie at the same time

 Pick a movie you both want to see and watch it at the same time – it means you can either discuss things throughout, as if you were together, or you can have a chat at the end about what you liked and what you didn’t like.

 Cook together

 Find a meal you both like and plan a time when you can cook together. You could video chat whilst doing it to see if you’re doing it the same way.

If cooking isn’t your thing, you could order the same takeaway, or for something more exciting – order takeaway for each other!

Go for a walk together

 Now we’re allowed to meet up with people from outside our household – whilst maintaining social distancing – why not go for a nice walk together? If you live on the coast, a nice seaside walk on a sunny day could be really romantic, or in your local park. You could even stop and have a picnic.

 Book a space in a pub garden

 Now that pubs are open again you could book a table in the garden and have an almost ‘normal’ date! Sit and have a few drinks and/or some food and hopefully some good conversation.
