Most of us love chocolate so this date has you exploring different chocolate tastes and talking about what you like and don’t like.
This is an at-home date that you can enjoy after the kids are in bed, or anytime if you don’t have kids or your kids are grown.
What you need:
·2 pieces of paper and pens
·A variety box of chocolates
What you do:
·Remove the paper that tells you what the different chocolates are and tuck it away to refer to later.
·Number the squares the chocolates are in with a sharpie.
·Cut each chocolate in half or in quarters, if you prefer smaller tastes.
·Take turns feeding each other a chocolate. Write down the number of the box you tried and guess what the flavor is from your taste test.
·Enjoy guessing, laughing, and discovering each of your likes and dislikes.
·When you make it through as much of the box as you desire, pull out the paper that tells you the flavors and see how many you each guessed correctly!

Planned spontaneity can be a great way to mix things up and do something different. This date also takes decision-making off the table. You do what you draw!
Once you “create” this date, you can use it over and over again!
What you need:
- 1 piece of paper
- two bags
Create the date:
Cut a piece of paper into 20 strips.
Write the names of ten restaurants on ten of the slips–one restaurant per slip.
Then on the other ten strips, write an activity you can do together.
Activity ideas might include:
- Ax Throwing (yes there are places in many communities that offer this!)
- Playing a board game
- Putt Putt golfing
- Museum (specify specific museums nearby)
Make it happen:
Put the restaurant strips in one bag and the activity strips in another bag. Shake the bags and draw one restaurant and one activity. You now have the plan, so head out and make it happen!

Most of us think about taking kids to the zoo but few of us consider the zoo a fun date for two!
In this Design-a-Date, the two of you will go to your local zoo or travel to a zoo you’ve always wanted to explore. You’ll meander through the exhibits, talking about the animals you love, learning things together, and just enjoying each other’s company!
Plan the Date: Pick a date to explore the zoo. Put it on your calendar and protect it!
Make the date happen: While you’re traveling to the zoo, share memories of zoo visits you experienced when you were a child. Hold hands, take selfies, and take your time walking and talking.
Think about lunch ahead of time: pack a picnic, plan for a meal at the zoo or choose a restaurant near the zoo that you’ve never eaten at before.
Select one of the selfies you took to print out and frame at home!

Ladies first. Spin the bottle and do what it says. You “win” by simply connecting deeper and having fun together!
Now set aside some time to play your Spin the Bottle game and start talking, sharing, laughing and having fun!
