5 Long-Distance Date Ideas to Try With Your SO

By Belo Medical Group on October 21, 2020

The quarantine has tested a lot of relationships, especially couples who have had to go months without seeing each other face to face. Some couples continue to go long-distance, even today, especially if they live with people highly vulnerable to COVID-19 or it’s logistically hard to meet up with their SO since they live in another city. It’s important to spend time with one another—even if it’s just in silence—so having to spend long periods of time away from each other can take a toll. Luckily, with the help of technology, there are a lot of long-distance date ideas that you can try to still get that quality time with your partner.

1. Play two-player games together.

If you and your boo prefer low-key bonding moments, like Gabbi Garcia and Khalil Ramos, there are a lot of online two-player mobile games you can play while staying long-distance. Why not test your vocabulary and strategy with Words With Friends? Facebook also has a lot of free options to choose from. It’s all a matter of finding one that suits both your tastes.

2. Netflix… and Skype!

While some movie theaters have already reopened, it’s still best to stay at home unless it’s for essentials. Instead of movie dates at the cinema, a long-distance date idea couples can try are watching Netflix shows and movies. You can share your screens, pop some popcorn, and get in your cosiest clothes (like Camille Co and Joni Koro) for a chill movie night at home.

3. Exchange or try out new recipes.

Are you and your SO foodies like Matteo Guidicelli and Sarah Geronimo? Then maybe it’s time to start your own couples recipe book. You can try cooking the same recipe or switch between making a main dish and your partner handles the dessert. Just remember to make an extra serving so you can send it over to them to try it too. Then, compare notes of your fave dishes or other recipes you’d like to try.

4. Keep up with your fitness goals through virtual workouts.

For the couple that likes to stay fit together, like Belo couple Derek Ramsay and Andrea Torres, why not keep each other accountable for your individual fitness goals? Be each other’s #fitspiration and exercise coach by turning your video calls into workout sessions. If you don’t want to go back to exercising in the gym, then it’s best to stick to at-home workouts to stay in shape. Just follow along with a YouTube fitness guru and make it a daily thing.

5. Treat yourselves to fancy online dinner dates.

Why not take your dinner dates online? Order from your fave restaurant, set up a romantic dinner setting including your laptop, and dress up in your best date outfit. Then, spend the night sharing everything that’s keeping you busy lately and cap it off with some sweet dessert. To make it extra special, send your girl a beautiful bouquet like Dingdong Dantes often does for Marian Rivera.

Remember, just because we’re social distancing, doesn’t mean we have to be emotionally disconnected. What matters is that you and your SO both make the effort to further strengthen your relationship despite these trying times.
