You can play together or just get kick back on the couch with a bowl of popcorn while she plays.

Go to the Movies

I know this is a pretty obvious tip but it’s one that a lot of guys and girls overlook.

Going to the movies is a super way to spend some quality time with your girlfriend.

Movies are a great opportunity to talk about something that you’re both interested in while continuously staying silent.

Give Her a Compliment

When was the last time you told your girlfriend how attractive she is? Or how unique her laugh or smile is.

We all get stuck in the same day-to-day routines and forget to make our partners feel special.

A compliment can do wonders to boost your girlfriends self-esteem, and also make her day.

Smile

Nothing beats smiling when it comes to being happy. Next time you’re feeling sick, try smiling.

You will be surprised by the number of chemicals in your brain and your body that just respond to smiling.

Go to a gym.

Play Pop-a-Shot, NBA Jam or any other basketball arcade game.

Start a Musical Duo

You might not think that you can find synergy with someone without both of you being a 100% similar or liking each other’s music, but I’ve seen it happen too many times to not pay attention.

The key is to find out what she enjoys and what you enjoy, and then let that be what you work on together.

Listen to music together

This is the first starting place; you both like music, so why not enjoy it together?

Watch Band Practice

Find a band that’s practicing at a bar or coffee shop nearby. This is some good inspiration and motivation and you can get some pointers from other performers.

Sing Karaoke

Think of it like building up to the performance. You’re doing it safe, you’re learning how to sing together, and you’re working out harmonies in a way that’s not so embarrassing.

Go to a music festival

There’s always one around the corner these days!

Make a YouTube video

Learn new ways of entertaining and get together to make some good content for everybody.

Take a music class

Learn to play an instrument with your loved one.

Encourage each other

Try Karaoke

If you want to know how to win a woman over the Chateau Nights is the way to go. Women love to sing, some more than others. I’m not talking about karaoke.� Karaoke night is a great way to watch your girlfriend really get into to something. Their passion for music will show and you’ll realize that this is more than just a hobby. Watch them sing and enjoy it.

Karaoke is a great way to bond with your girlfriend. You’ll be able to see your lady girl in the environment where she feels the most comfortable. If she’s a singer, then you’ll be able to see that artist side come out. Who know’s, you might even get the spice up for the bedroom.

Take a Dance Class Together

The fun way to get better at dancing is by taking some classes. You can check around your local community college and do a little research to find out about what is offered. If you want to learn how to two-step like in line dancing you may find something like that.

Many of the classes will be held during the evening and maybe even on Saturday. As long as you do your research you will find something that works and the only you way you can find out what works the best is by getting out there and trying them.

Go to a Dance Club

Go pick up some of her female friends and have a dance party! You just know how much women like to dance, so you should take advantage of it.

The drama comes when you try to pick up her friends.

For the most part, I’ve found that girls are relaxed about dancing in front of their girlfriends.

They’re also probably more confident.

But, you still need to be sure to not grab her and start grinding on her in front of her girl friends.

Solution: Do a mixer with another couple!

Check out the new SMART Dating Mastery program to learn how to attract your dream girl and have a relationship to remember.

Go for a Bar Crawl

Bar crawls, pub crawls, whatever you call them, there nothing quite like kicking off a night out with some good old fashioned activity. Alcohol will lubricate even the lamest conversation your partner, and luckily the number of bars you need to hit before the night is over is pretty flexible. Just make sure you don’t overdo it. You’ll need to be able to walk home in the end.

Get Out from an Escape Room Together

There are tons of escape rooms all over the US, and if you haven’t been to one in the past, you should definitely give it a shot, because that’s actually a super fun experience.

What's an escape room?

An escape room is essentially a live version of the classic video game type “detective adventure.”

If you’re unsure of what to do, the sites will accommodate any skill level, and all of the puzzles there are extremely hard to beat.

How does an escape room work?

The objective is to solve as many puzzles as possible to beat the game.

The game master will give you a secret code that you have to crack within one hour. You’re required to crack as many puzzles as possible to work your way out.

Binge on Netflix Together

If you want your relationship to be stronger, all the things you do need to bring the best out of both of you, and one thing that can help you do this is sitting down to watch some Netflix.

Each of you gets to choose what you want to watch, and you get to spend lots of quality time together as you curl up on the couch.

I recommend movies with deep plots and character development such as The Social Network, The Blind Side, The King’s Speech, and Fury.

You can also do something similar with YouTube to see what your other layers enjoy.

Movie Marathon with Your Favorite Movies

You can spend a day cuddling with your girlfriend on the couch watching your favorite chick flicks.

If there is anything you both share in common it is probably a love for movies. There are so many great movies out there, but these are some of our favorite chick flicks to watch with or without the girls.

Recreate a Famous Movie Scene

Say you're in that scene from Pretty Woman, Serena says that they don't have an appointment.

You say, "We have an appointment.. . with destiny." They love that.

And you're in the Wolf of Wall Street. Jordan is giving you a pep talk.

You say, "Buy a fifth. Sell it by the ounce. Give one to my son. He's single." They love that!

And you're a male stripper in Magic Mike. The crowd is going wild!

Come Up with Your Own Dish

Food is an important aspect of life. While men are working, women are most likely at home, cooking a significant part of their day. I mean, in terms of jobs, all that the woman does is cook.

So, most likely, she has her own dish that she likes to cook over and over.

Ask her to cook her dish for you. This way, you can get a taste of what it is like to be a housewife.

You can also make something new! You may find out that you are a great cook.

Go Hitchhiking Together

Firstly, it’s safer than it sounds! Although your next ride might not be a limousine, why not enjoy the adventure of getting on the road in a slightly different way?

You can walk to a popular spot on the highway, and hold a sign for where you’d like to go. Or give a thumb to any vehicle that passes to suggest your destination.

Having planned the trip yourself, you will have some idea on how to get from your pickup to your drop-off.

Make Some Selfies

I know that sounds super cheesy but let’s be real, you two are super cute together so don’t forget to take some selfies to keep as souvenirs. It’s a really fun thing to do with your girlfriend and it might even make for a cute hashtag on Instagram.

Volunteer

Depending on where you live, it can be difficult to juggle the responsibilities of being in a relationship with everything else in your life. This is why many people struggle to find time for their significant other.

When you start to develop feelings for someone, those feelings can help push you to make the time to spend with them, rather than allowing your priorities to get in the way.

If you have a difficult time finding a way to make time for your significant other, think about how you can give back to your community, and you just may be shocked by how much more personal time you have.

Volunteering is a great way to encourage each other to help others in need.

This video shows how you can make working together towards a goal a fun experience. If you can bond doing something productive, you can spend more time together while also reminding yourselves why you are dating in the first place!

Adopt a Rescue Dog Together

If you are single, and looking for ideas of date night, Adopting a Rescue Dog is a great one. There are a lot of homeless dogs out there who need a good home, and often shelters offer free adoption for those who are willing to adopt an adult animal.

The company of a dog is also great for you and your partner. Dogs are loving, compassionate and loyal, and a wonderful addition to any family.

A Trip to the Zoo

Zoos are a great place for dates because there are often activities to do other than just looking at animals.

One of the advantages of going to the zoo with your girlfriend is that you can do things together like feeding the animals and taking pictures like normal tourists.

You can also browse through the animal library and read up on the different types of creatures that you might not know that much about.

The zoo is also often quite calm and quiet, which means that you can have a good conversation in addition to sightseeing.

You can visit various attractions in the zoo with your date and find out which one is her favorite.

You can also buy her a souvenir from your favorite attraction at the zoo to make the date even more memorable.

The zoo is a very wholesome place and there are very few things that could go wrong. This makes it a good date for couples that are in their earlier stages of dating.

You can offer to buy her ice-cream or a snack to make the date even more memorable.

Go to a Theme Park

Theme parks can be a great, fun day out for family vacations. As long as you’re not afraid of big roller coasters, that is.

If you’re looking for things to do with your girlfriend that don’t involve purchasing anything, here’s a free alternative. You can go to Six Flags for free … as long as you’re willing to wait in line.

If you’re up for spending some money, then theme parks can be a lot of fun. There are actually several places you can go to where you won’t spend a dime:

  • Knott’s Berry Farm
  • Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art

L.A. County Museum of Art

South Coast Plaza

Plenty of free museums can also be a lot of fun, as can watching free movies at your local library.

Have a Cheesy Rom-Com Date

You know why girls like these movies? Most of them star gorgeous men and feature gratuitous amounts of yummy food. Sounds like a solid plan to me! Get your girlfriend some popcorn and cozy up together. Just go for a second date or something to make it appropriate.

Recreate the Day You Two Met

Even if you’ve been with your wife/girlfriend for a while, you might have forgotten the details surrounding your first meeting. Pick up a few old photos together and pretend you’re meeting for the first time. Get inspired to give the best first impression you can.

Final Piece of Advice

There is nothing as special as having a special someone in your life to share your time with.

Having a girlfriend is one of the best feelings in the world. But, it’s not always like a fairy tale.

From the first date to the marriage day is not always smooth sailing. You will have to deal with a lot of awkward situations, misunderstandings and other surprises.

This can be frustrating and may pull you back from achieving your goals. But if you make sure to work hard and keep being the best version of yourself, you will get to love her all over again.
