Cupid's Pulse Article: Date Idea: Star in Your Own Romantic ComedyCupid's Pulse Article: Date Idea: Star in Your Own Romantic Comedy

By Noelle Downey

Looking for fun date night 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 idea from the movie.

1. 500 Days of Summer: 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?

2. How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days: 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 with this fun weekend date idea.

3. It Happened One Night: 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.
