Are you tired of winter? Is your relationship getting boring? Do you have cabin fever from watching television all winter, waiting for spring to come? You aren’t alone! Winters can be long and boring and they can also dull a relationship pretty quickly. But, now that spring is really just around the corner, it’s time to get reconnected with your love by doing different things together. This article will provide you with the top spring date ideas to get you both off the couch and away from that television!
Go Shopping For A New Spring Wardrobe
Break out your credit cards and a comfortable pair of shoes and you and your partner will be ready for a fun afternoon of shopping. Choose your favorite shopping district and make a day of it by starting with lunch, followed up with some window shopping and a shopping spree. Nothing says spring like a new wardrobe! You can put away those heavy winter clothes and buy some light new clothes that will make you feel invigorated and excited about the summer. Plus, it will help the two of you spend some quality time together while getting out and enjoying the new season.
Start A Garden
You know spring is in the air when leaves start budding and flowers start blooming again. Take advantage of this rebirth by planting a garden with your girlfriend. If you are lucky enough to live in a climate that allows you to plant a garden early in the spring, then get busy and starting planting outside. However, if you have to wait until later in spring before you can plant, then give your plants a head start by growing them inside first and then transferring them outside when the weather is suitable. Together, you and your girlfriend can visit a garden center to choose plants that you want to grow. Think of this as a new way to strengthen your relationship – you can choose the plants you want and then figure out how to keep them alive and growing. When you and she are working together on projects like this, you may find that your relationship improves as well.
Spring Cleaning & Painting
Spring means it’s time to clean those dust bunnies out of your closet and get a new start for the year. This can be boring and hard work, but you can make it a fun way to do something with your girlfriend that you might normally not do. For example, visit a hardware store together and pick out some new shades of paint for your place & then share the work of painting together. I’m sure you’ve seen those movies where the couple starts out painting together and then before you know it, there’s a paint fight followed by passionate kissing and love-making. Doesn’t that sound like a pretty good date?
Even if you’ve never tried fishing before, spring is a great time to learn all about it. You can get everything you need from any sporting goods store and it won’t cost you a lot either. Or, if you are a student and low on cash, try to rent some equipment from your college or university. Once you’ve got the gear, pack a picnic and head out to the nearest body of water. If you aren’t near an ocean, then head to a lake to fish for lake trout, a species of fish that will put up an exciting fish when you get them on the line. If you’re near the ocean, get in on the salmon runs and try to catch some of these delicious fish. But even if you end up catching nothing, your day won’t be wasted because you will be together with your girlfriend having a delicious picnic in the great outdoors. And, if the fish aren’t biting, then take the opportunity to start nibbling something yourself…
Hot Air Balloon Ride
A hot air balloon ride can be a very romantic way to spend a day or evening. Again, you just need to pack a nice picnic – a bottle of wine, some nice cheese and bread and some strawberries for dessert. When you get up above the city (or the country), you will be amazed at how beautiful the world looks from high above. Plus, it’s a romantic and private way to show your girlfriend just how much you care for her. Go to the zoo There’s no better time to go to the zoo than in the spring. The animals are emerging from their long winter hibernations and are in the heat of mating season, so they are extra active, which is always fun for zoo-goers. Plus, in the springtime, new baby animals are being born and are exploring their new surroundings, so there’s always lots to see. Just make sure you wear comfortable shoes because you can clock a lot of miles at the zoo on a lovely spring afternoon.
Paris In The Springtime?
If you’ve got the time and money, then why not celebrate spring with your girlfriend in the most romantic city in the world? Start off your trip before you leave by renting the film Paris in the Spring. Then, pack your bags and get your tickets. No matter how long or short your trip is, you won’t be disappointed with what you find in Paris. Go window shopping; sit in a café; people-watch; and spend a starry night at the top of the Eiffel Tower. This will be one spring date you will never forget!
Choose Your Own Adventure
There are lots of things to do as winter gives way to spring, so make your own adventure. Grad your date and do something different or unexpected. With the right girl on your arm and a beautiful day ahead of you, anything can be fun!
