Cupid's Pulse Article: Date Idea: Embrace a Rainy DayCupid's Pulse Article: Date Idea: Embrace a Rainy Day

By Bonnie Griffin

You had a perfect outdoor date planned for this weekend, but now it’s supposed to rain. What are you going to do? Are you going to cancel date night and curl up under the covers? No way! Cupid has some great date ideas for when the rain runs you inside.

Check out these date night ideas for when your outdoor plans get rained out.

Take advantage of a rainy weekend by adapting and planning something fun with your significant other even though it may not have been your original idea.  Cuddle up with your honey next to the fire and enjoy each other’s company.  Or, better yet, move all of your furniture and build a little fortress just like when you were a little kid and the rain kept you from going outside.

If you don’t want to stay at home, then check out a flick you’ve been dying to see, whether that means going to the theater or watching it at home.  A perfect rainy day movie to see is Woody Allen’s recent movie Midnight In Paris.  It centers around Paris being beautiful in the rain!

If you’re not in the mood for seeing a movie and want something with a little competition, consider going bowling or to an arcade.  Check out the “it” bowling destination for our favorite celebrities, Lucky Strikes.  They have numerous locations throughout the U.S., and you never know which celebrities you may run into; Justin Bieber celebrated his album release party this past March at the New York City location.  If you’re not a bowler, then hit the arcade.  Dave & Buster’s has over 55 locations, so you’re sure to find one near you for a game-filled night inside and out of the rain.

If you really want to get romantic, take a hint from The Notebook, and recreate one of the heart-warming movie’s key scenes.  Kiss in the rain!  Now that’s one great way to make a seemingly bleak day look cheerful.
