Looking for fun date ideas for the weekend?¬† Even if your love life might not be quite as glamorous as a Hollywood romantic comedy, that doesn’t mean you can’t live out your favorite movie-style date!¬† Take a cue from some of your, or your partner’s, favorite rom coms and reenact a date from the movie.
Do you have a more realistic take on love?¬† Then (500) Days of Summer is for you.¬† Head to IKEA or a similar home goods store and play house in the set-up kitchens, living rooms and bedrooms.¬† Be as silly as possible!¬† It worked for¬†Joseph Gordon-Levitt¬†and¬†Zoe Deschanel¬†in the movie, so why couldn’t it set off sparks for you, too?
Are you and your mate the competitive type?¬† Start off like¬†Matthew McConaughey¬†and¬†Kate Hudson¬†in How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days and go out for lobster!¬† It’s an interactive food, but leaves room for talking, too.¬† They play a game of questions in the movie, but feel free to take a different leaf from the movie’s script and challenge each other¬†with different bets.¬† See who holds up their end and who cracks under the rom com pressure.
Or¬†if you’re into the more classic love stories, there’s nothing like a road trip to live out your It Happened One Night dreams.¬† Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable bicker all down the road, but after one night at a roadside inn, the two can’t help but fall in love.¬† Hopefully your travels will be less bumpy than theirs, but either way, it’s a great way to get some quality time and laughs in with your loved one.
