Dating is a lot of work.

And you know what’s more work? Thinking of date ideas to spice up your relationship. So instead of just going to the same restaurant or seeing a movie after work, here are some ideas you should try out with your lover.

1. Beach day out

Go to the beach with a wine, some food, and music from a boombox. Talk about stuff, and watch the sunset

3. Movies

If you’re tired of cinemas, ditch it for one of the open drive cinemas. Watch a classic and enjoy with popcorn and a drink.
