Is there anything more romantic than staying up all night to spend some quality alone time with your partner? Deepen your relationship and love by connecting under the light of the moon. For this weekend date idea, you need nothing but each other…and maybe a little caffeine!

Be Playful on This Romantic Date Idea

Staying up past your bedtime will make you both feel like kids again. And there’s so much you can do together as you waste the night away! Use this time to talk and get to know each other even better. Consider playing a game like Would You Rather or Truth or Dare to get the conversation flowing. Or get out your old family photos and learn more about each other’s childhoods.

If you’re in a playful mood, you may want to play a card game or pull out those board games from the back of your closet. You don’t even have to follow the rules! Since you have all night, try combining two games and coming up with your own guidelines to create something new together. This weekend date idea should be light-hearted and fun. Make coffee, hot chocolate, or tea to keep those eyelids from drooping. And don’t forget a midnight snack!

To make this date idea even more romantic, light candles around the house. Since the weather is nice this time of year, you can venture outside and star gaze while you snuggle together under a blanket. See how many constellations you can name — you can check your work with an app like SkyView. Don’t forget to make a wish on any shootings stars you might see!

You’ll be making memories you can cherish for years to come. Since the nighttime is often free of distractions (like work e-mails and texts to answers), your relationship and love will be stronger after taking this dating advice. Perhaps the moon will allow you to see your partner in a totally new light. This could be a story to tell your grandkids!
