In today’s busy society, people are finding less and less time for spending time with their loved ones. If you keep making plans and end up having to cancel them when something last minute comes up, or you and your partner feel too tired on the weekends to make big plans, these last-minute date ideas might be right for you!

1. Cook Dinner Together

Skip going out and cook together at home. Even if neither one of you is a great cook, this can be a very fun and rewarding experience. You’ll have plenty of time to talk and catch up while you cook, and you will end up with a nice homemade meal, much healthier than going out or getting take-out. Have fun trying out a new recipe, or pick an old favorite.

2. Binge Watch Your Favorite Show

What better way to catch up on that show you’ve been dying to watch but never found the time than with your partner? Put on comfy clothes, make some popcorn, and prepare for a cozy and relaxing evening of fun with your loved one.

3. Take a Night Walk

If the weather is nice you can go on a nice romantic evening walk with your partner. Leave your phones behind, pack a thermos of a hot beverage and a blanket if you decide to take a break. Take time to talk and get to know each other better. Watch the stars together. Talk about something you never shared before.

4. Play a Board Game

For a fun and care-free evening take out your favorite board game (or try a brand new one). There are plenty to choose from; you could play against each other or work together towards solving a problem. Relax and laugh together.

5. Give Your Partner a Massage

Your partner will appreciate a nice, long massage after a busy week. Maybe you can swap foot and neck massages. Try out a fun, new massage oil. Either way, this is a sure way to have a nice, romantic evening.

6. Go to a 24-hour Diner

Everyone has a ‘guilty pleasure’ dinner or a fast food joint. If you don’t feel like cooking, you can go out to a place like this anytime, no reservation needed! You and your partner can treat yourselves, and since you’re going out for a meal, it will feel like a proper date night.
