Having fun in a relationship is not all about getting drunk and belting out Bohemian Rhapsody on a half empty dance floor in the local pub (even though we’ve all been there and had a great time). Here are a few fun things to do together sober.
Mini golf is usually fairly cheap and doesn’t require much skill to have a fun time. Even if you wanted to drink, it would be difficult as you navigate the small windmills and hills that make up the course. It also adds a little competition which can spice things up.
A great way to stay active, fun, competitive – and if you play it right – the perfect place to flirt with each other.
No one is going to want to drink alcohol right before going on a rickety old ride or the dodgems. The fair is such a classic date destination, it will turn up the romance without the aid of alcohol.
Ice skating is another fun activity to have a laugh falling over together and generally mucking around. Also, it often requires quite a lot of physical contact, just saying. Also – don’t do what I did and slip over and crack your head open.
The museum is a slightly more relaxed idea. Whether it’s art or natural history, museums are a great place to enjoy each other’s company whilst expanding your knowledge. The displays are easy conversation starters, too.
The theatre doesn’t have to be the West End to be a good time. Community theatres will have cheap tickets and it’s always fun (either because the standard is great or so poor that it’s funny).
I know there’s a lot of physical activity on this list, but getting fit together will make you both feel great in a way that getting drunk can’t – and a hike is a great way to stay healthy and enjoy the nature around you. Exercise releases endorphins, which means you’ll both have happy feelings about being together. What’s not to love about that!
