Cupid's Pulse Article: Date Idea: Volunteer Your Time TogetherCupid's Pulse Article: Date Idea: Volunteer Your Time Together

By Ché Blackwood

It’s good to get creative and thoughtful with the way you and your loved one spend time together.  After all, there’s more to a relationship than dinner and a movie.  So, forget arguing over whether you should see the newest romance flick, or the latest blockbuster action movie. Instead, share your love with others by involving yourself in volunteer work.

A great way to spend your time together is by cuddling up with those who are less fortunate, and the animal shelter is the perfect way to start. Innocent pets that have been abandoned and abused need loving too. Maybe you and your significant other will both fall in love with these furry friends, and decide to adopt one of them.  Regardless,  you can spend time with one another by helping out some lonely animals in need. The shelter is always open to visitors.

If you enjoy spending time in the kitchen, why not share your cooking skills with the less fortunate at a food bank or homeless shelter.  It will make you and your sweetheart think twice about the food we take for granted.  Serving people who are less fortunate will help to put a smile on their face.

Life, as in dating, should be about the simple things. If you don’t have time to volunteer right now, grab your calendar and do some planning.  All you need to do is find a little time to help those around you.
