If you are miles apart, this idea is just for you! Pick one recipe that matches both your tastes and share it with your partner. Set a timing, buy all the ingredients required, share a google meet link and connect with each other virtually. While on a video call, place your device at a safe distance and follow the recipe and both of you cook the meal together at your respective places! This will help you share the same experience, and you will feel like you are together. Once the meal is ready, take some time, get ready, place it on the table along with the device and eat together. Chit-chat, make fun of what you have made, how it has turned out. Ship it with a glass of wine and just enjoy your date!

If you are away from each other, put an extra effort, use an editing app and design a ticket. Share that ticket with your partner and connect with them on Netflix at the given time. Make sure they carry their movie snacks and so do you. Watch a cute RomCom and feel like you guys are sitting together at a movie theatre. In case you are together, decorate an area of your room, place a projector, place fairy lights, have comfortable mattresses where you can cuddle and watch the movie. Have a supply of snacks and enjoy your movie night!

Game Night 

Works well both in person and virtually. Get your games out, anything fun and daring. Have your favorite drinks, preferably the ones that make you tipsy soon enough, and get the game night going. This game night may start as a game of truth and dares, transform into two truths and a lie and soon become a karaoke night with you both singing duets holding glasses like mics. The final touch to this date will be by you guys sharing hangover morning drink recipes with each other! 

Dance Night
