What do you do with your bf/gf/SO for dates/fun?

Thank goodness we are getting to Spring because I can't take anymore TV watching inside! What do you guys do for fun? We go see movies, get totally absorbed in shows like Dexter and Weeds, play video games, go out to eat with friends.....we are not too creative here.

Ahhh that sounds like our lives, though we rarely even go out to movies and usually go out to eat by ourselves since we don't have a lot of friends. We watch way too much tv together. We're currently rewatching Breaking Bad. We also sit side by side, on the internet on our respective computers. It's kind of sad. OH! But we take a swing dancing class together! We're not as boring as we used to be! And we've done a couple of board game nights together with some guys at his work. Though I left early at the last one because I couldn't get into the game.

I really want to go on an exciting date like zip-lining or something. We need to get out more.

My favorite datenight with hubby in going to the lake with a picnic basket and just watching the tide. Even if it's raining it's fun because we just get into the truck, watch the raindrops on the water and the black clouds move in & out. The best part is turning the world OFF and just being together with romantic music playing softly in the background :)>>>

we watch movies/tv far too much, as well.
go on bike rides
go to the farmer's market
go to the beach
picnics
sometimes random things like going out to a show or movie or hanging out with friends.
..unfortunately during the biking season he won't be physical except biking (for recovery), but when he's not in the season, hike, walk, ice skated once...

We play tennis or ping pong, go to forests/beaches/rivers, go to karaoke bars, play video games, go on walks especially at night, watch movies or TV shows (rarely go to movie theatres, we usually rent), sometimes go out to eat.

ha! We're guilty of this too!!

Aside from internet.....during the week we go to the gym together, do gardening, watch TV (too much). 
Weekends varies, depending on weather and if we're feeling lazy or not.  If we're not lazy - maybe go out for coffee, go out to dinner, camping (during the spring / summer we went 1 or 2 times per month, and hopefully once more before winter kicks in), gym, running, gardening.  We've been bowling once and to the cinema once in the last year.  If we're feeling lazy we'll stay in and watch movies or play the wii.

Weekends we also like to cook more 'fancy' or more involved meals.  We have friends round for dinner once a month or so and go to theirs for dinner also.

well i'm glad you guys watch alot of tv too! part of our lack of exciting plans is due to how exhausted we both are at the end of the week.

we are also guilty of sitting side by side with our respective computers out. oddly, one of the things i enjoy most is sitting on the couch with him while he's working and im doing my homework. it's just pleasant.

i'm super excited for summer because we have plans to get season passes to Water Country as well as take a fun trip to Schlitterban in TX!!

swing dancing lessons sounds AWESOME. it would be hard to rope my bf into something dancing related but i think the time will come eventually...

We watch food network shows and I laugh at how bad they are mostly. We go to whole foods or the normal grocery store and get snacks and we cook together or I cook for her or she cooks for me. We ride scooters, we hang out outside and talk about things and look at the moon. We nap together while spooning (spooning is fun of its own!) and play with the dog and have long awesome pointless chats about anything.

James and I spend a good bit of time together just cuddling (often nekkid) and talking... usually at least hour of that every day, often in bed before We go to sleep. It's nice.

We take walks and go on adventures in the woods... sometimes We'll take a camera along to snap photos of one another and/or mushrooms, bugs, interesting foliage, etc.

Bike rides on the blacktop country roads are great when the weather's nice... We go on night rides during the warm months--sometimes by the light of the full/nearly-full moon, and sometimes when it's super dark (new to first quarter moon), to see the stars better.

Movies are always good fun, since We're both movie nerds with very similar tastes. Sometimes We'll watch movies We've both seen before, get intoxicated beforehand, and just laugh and talk about the movie while it's playing.

Occasionally We play one of Our few board games--sometimes Scrabble, but usually it's this old-ass Ravensburger game called "The a-MAZE-ing Labyrinth," which We never get tired of playing.

And sometimes We'll pass a sketchbook back and forth and draw stuff.... like, one of Us will suggest a theme or title and then draw out an interpretation of that, then the other person draws his/her interpretation (without looking at the first drawing), and then We compare drawings when both of Us have finished. THAT is frickin' fun. :)
I suppose a more common drawing game would be pictionary, or something..... it's great because You don't really need to be an excellent artist to have fun with it.

With a new baby at home who has time for any alone time? So we entertain ourselves playing with the baby and seeing who can make up the best words to old songs and making the baby laugh

Also, tv,  Tv, TV.

haha, Yeh-hess!
(although bike rides and woods-venturing is best done with clothing on, We've found... :D )

Oh, another fun thing (which is totally do-able without clothes): Spontaneous Dance Party!
James and I have a super-long playlist of upbeat and positive/creative/fun music that We play down at the barn.... Sometimes a really groovy song will come on, and one of Us will start dancing wildly, interrupting whatever else We might have been doing. The other joins in, and boom--Spontaneous Dance Party.
Other times, We'll put on a particular genre or artist and just dance 'til We're exhausted. Just tonight, We got down with Our funky selves while playing an hour-long mix of sweet-ass underground disco. Damn, that was fun.

We definitely do a lot of snuggling.

Go out to eat at our favorite spots. I also love to cook him a special meal, often veganizing some of his favorite things in the world.

We go out for drinks a lot. Sometimes just the 2 of us, other times we'll go out with friends.

Weather permitting we go for a walk/hike/jog/stroll somewhere.

We love to go swimming in his pool when it's nice, often leading to naked snuggles in the pool.

Since he's a road musician, he gets antsy when he's in town too long so we love going on a long drive or take random weekday road trips or adventures.
