5 Fun Ideas To Do While In Lockdown

Dating in lockdown poses a number of challenges for any type of romantic situation. Those living with their partners might find it difficult to be constantly in each other’s space, couples separated by the lockdown rules may struggle with being apart for long periods of time, and then there are those who are single and unable to mingle. In all these scenarios, normal dating rules have been thrown out of the window as our romantic lives have been completely turned upside down. That means it’s time to get inventive. 

Here are 5 fun date ideas to do while in lockdown: 


  1. Cooking together – We all miss going out for meals on a weekend with our partner, or meeting someone new in a swanky restaurant. For couples living together, cooking and eating a romantic meal together could be a lovely way of recreating those restaurant date vibes. For those living alone or separated from their partner, try each cooking the same dinner at your respective houses and eating ‘together’ over video call for a makeshift meal out.
  2. Movie night – Going to the movies, but in your pyjamas. Movie night is a classic date idea that doesn’t involve going out at all. If you and your partner aren’t living together, get that video chat up and watch a movie virtually together instead. Don’t forget the snacks!
  3. A romantic walk – While we’re all cooped up inside it’s more important than ever that we get out in the fresh air regularly. If it’s safe for you to do so, going out and exploring some new scenery with your partner or a romantic potential could be a really cute date idea that complies with lockdown rules while giving you chance to get out and about. You could even take a picnic and a flask and turn it into an al fresco lunch date.
  4. Quizzes – Online quizzes have really kicked off during lockdown and they can be a super fun date idea that works either in-person or virtually. Whether you’re on the same team as your date or showing your competitive nature by going head to head, doing a virtual quiz could be just the stress-relieving date night you needed during lockdown. 
  5. Dressed up drinks – If you can’t go to the bar, let the bar come to you! Getting dressed up during lockdown is a great way to create the feeling of a real date night and feel good about yourself at the same time. Stick on your party clothes, put on some music, and mix yourself some cocktails for a classy evening with your date at a fraction of the cost of going out.
