We are all sick to death of global pandemics and lockdowns and tiers and everything else associated with Coronavirus. We know the rules are for the greater good and do save lives but oh, what would we all give to go back to normal.
You know, the stuff we used to do, remember? Things like shops being open, going out for a meal, meeting friends, having a get together at home or in the garden. Just having a friend or family over for a cup of tea and a Chocolate HobNob for goodness sakes!
Are you at a loss for dating ideas at this tough time? Fear not, we have some to share…
Do something you both enjoy together

If you are one of the growing number of gamer girls out there with a partner who also loves the latest shoot’em’up or platform, how about bringing out your competitive sides with gaming marathon with a difference? Set challenges with ‘prizes’ for the winner and ‘forfeits’ for the loser. Be imaginative, if you know what I mean *wink*. Not found someone that shares your love of gaming yet?

Do something different and fun
It is all too easy to get stuck in a rut especially if you have been in a relationship for some time. Sometimes, all it takes to shake things up a little is to get back to making one another laugh. Actually, scrap that, no matter how long you have been together, it is always good to make each other laugh. So, do something you normally wouldn’t. Give each other a makeover, taking before and after photos and trusting one another completely to deliver a whole new look. Or how about throwing off all your cares and setting up a living room karaoke night to belt out those note perfect (or not) tunes? The possibilities really are endless and I would love to hear any ideas you come up with!
