Cupid's Pulse Article: 5 Date Ideas To Maximize Daylight SavingsCupid's Pulse Article: 5 Date Ideas To Maximize Daylight Savings

By Linda Guma and Kayla Garritano

After a long, hot summer of late night festivities, followed by fall work hours that extend past 6 p.m., we could all use an extra hour of sleep so our bodies can catch up. Well, soon enough it will be here. On November 6, we’ll turn back the clocks again to mark the end of Daylight Savings Time. While most of us are probably happy about gaining that extra hour of sleep, why not maximize those 60 extra minutes by spending it with your partner? Here is some dating advice on ways to capitalize on a little romance:

These date ideas will be sure to give you the best use out of that one extra hour!

1. Rise and shine: Of course, not all of us are nocturnal. If you and your partner are early risers, there’s no need to bother resetting your biological clocks. Take advantage of that additional time by going for a morning jog together before you start your respective daily routines. To save some energy, you’ve got to use some energy. Other ways to be creative with dates early in the day include morning swims, sweet mimosas at a nearby cafe, or breakfast in bed.

2. Last call: If you and your partner prefer sleeping in and staying up late, feel free to unleash your night owl tendencies. Bars and clubs will be open an hour later, which also means that last call for drinks will be extended as well. After grabbing cocktails at your favorite lounge, hit the club and dance the night away.

3. Fall cleaning: This may sound like a big drag, but it’ll be worth it once it’s over. You and your partner can make a game of tidying up together. Get rid of things you no longer use and make way for newer items. The sense of accomplishment will serve as a bonding activity and you if you aren’t currently living together, be sure to save a drawer or two for him.

4. Take a chill pill: Sometimes, you just need to relax after the constant hustle and bustle of your busy life. Use the extra time to fuel your energy for the rest of the day. You can find romantic ways to unwind together, such as snuggling in bed or taking a bubble bath. Even the enjoyment of a local bookstore or a movie can be fun.

5. Bucket List: Take the time to sit over some wine and plan out some exciting events for the future. You and your partner will each need a pen and paper. Each jot down creative activities and places you’ve always wanted to visit, your own personal bucket list. After you’re done, consult each other’s lists and then sketch out a tentative plan to create a joint list. You’ll have some fun talking about the unordinary activities you want to do, and the unique places you want to go. It’ll definitely be some good conversation!
