The perfect virtual date

The concept of dating has evolved. We don't necessarily need to step out for a cup of coffee or go mini-golfing for the perfect date. We can have a perfect date just by lying around at home. If this sounds like your cup of tea, here are some ideas for the perfect virtual date (especially for couples in long-distance relationships).

Coffee and a Sunset

This requires only a bit of effort. Set up a table on your terrace or balcony. During sunset, turn on your laptops and make yourself a cup of tea/coffee as the twilight breaks. When the weather is better than ever, put on your pajamas and enjoy the perfect evening with your partner!

Cooking Together

This is perhaps one of the most romantic date ideas! Set up a video call and place your laptop on your kitchen slab. Now, you can make the same dish and turn this into a game or just cook yourself a fancy dinner and enjoy your meal on facetime, alongside a glass of wine. This can really spice up your date!

Virtual Yoga

If you are a couch potato, this ones for you! You might procrastinate working out but doing it with someone you like spending time with might actually get you moving, and help you build a stronger connection with them.

Have a Movie Night

We know this is an obvious one. Nevertheless, Netflix and popcorn is always great date idea, whether virtual or in real life. So, pick a movie/series to watch, download the Teleparty extension and get cozy!

Listening to Music

Music is a very personal element but listening to songs from a mutually favoured artist and vibing over facetime can turn out to be a really fun date! Pair music with deep conversations, and there’s nothing quite like it.
