Trying to come up with new and exciting date night ideas isn’t always easy, and if we’re not careful we can find ourselves stuck with the old stand-by, “dinner and a movie”. Well, have no fear! Here are some fun ways to change up your date night routine based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
With a competitive streak at least a mile long, you need a date night that gives you the opportunity to keep you entertained – and a chance to show off your winning skills in front of your s/o. The arcade is the perfect date night spot for you! Skee ball and racing games allow you to scratch that competitive itch while still keeping it light and fun! Not to mention, you could end up winning BIG and go home with a prize (other than your date, of course).
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus, you are a sucker for detail; but you can clam up when it comes to love. Take a trip to a record or music store on your next date night! The calm and laid back atmosphere will help to put you at ease, and you can spend the whole date indulging over every music selection your s/o makes! Make a mental note of your partner’s choices, and show them your devotion and dedication by making sure some of their top picks make it on to the playlist for your next date. Your subtle queues that you are paying attention will reassure your partner that you are in for the long haul, and lets you show your admiration without having to make a big flashy show of affection.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini, you’re super smart – and you know it. You love flexing your knowledge skills as often as you can, and you thrive in a public atmosphere with all eyes on you. Next date night, take your other half to a local trivia night! Your partner will love getting to watch you show off, and you’ll love the opportunity to learn something new!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
It’s no secret, Cancer, that you love spending time at home. For your next date night, have a movie night in. But, make sure this isn’t just ANY movie night. Pull out all the stops! Splurge on some gourmet popcorn, light some candles and find the coziest blankets you own. Top it off with your partner’s favorite movie and you’re in for a treat! If this is your first date and you think it may be a little too soon to be spending the night in, pick out a spot that feels like home to you! This could be a restaurant you like to frequent, or your favorite destination around town. You will feel comfortable and relaxed, and your date will definitely notice!
Leo (July 22 – August 22)
As a creative and passionate soul, you love any opportunity to use your imagination. Next date night, set up some easels and some paint and go to town! Or better yet, find a local paint n’ sip and get to work! Being in a social environment gives you the chance to show off your masterpiece, and of course, your lovely date! As a final grand gesture, give your finished piece to your partner. They’ll love the sentimental value, and you’ll love getting to show them a piece of your heart!
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo, you are not a huge fan of public displays of affection, so when it comes to dates something low-key and secluded is just what you need. A casual bike ride through a park or near the beach is a perfect opportunity for you to have some one on one time with your partner, and gives you plenty of time to pay close attention to your s/o’s thoughts and interests. Pack a picnic basket with some homemade treats and set up a blanket at the end of your bike ride. Dazzle your partner with all the knowledge you picked up on during the ride, and offer up some of that world-famous advice you’ve been known to give. Not to mention, all this deep conversation will help you loosen up and show your s/o your warm and fuzzy side.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
As a lover of all things beautiful and a creative side, next date night try something daring and sign you and your partner up for some dance lessons! Your world class cool temper and your need to please everyone will be on full display, and your love of being part of a team makes you the perfect dance partner! So put on your dancing shoes and get to steppin’! If this seems a little overly ambitious for you (or you have two left feet), get dressed up and take your date to that fancy restaurant with the incredible ambience you’ve been dying to go to. Your wallet might hate you, but with your partner dressed to the nines your thirst for beautiful things will definitely be quenched!
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpio, your energy can get a little overwhelming at times, so plan a date night that gives you the opportunity to let loose and go wild! Taking your s/o to an amusement park makes for a perfect date. The high energy and fast pace of the park offer you the perfect outlet to be yourself, and your natural curiosity will make you feel like a kid again! Also let’s not forget amusement parks offer several locations (*cough cough* Ferris wheel) to steal a kiss if the moment is right!
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You are a true wanderer, Sag, and you relish any opportunity to go somewhere new! On your next date excursion, go for a hike! Your natural curiosity will take over, and you won’t be able to control your excitement. Your date will admire your passion and lust for life, and your “never back down from a challenge” mindset will leave you feeling fulfilled. Plus, you’ll have plenty of time to start up one of those deep conversations you love so much!
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Your need to know anything and everything right away can come off as intimidating, and first impressions are key! So to appease your burning desire to ask ALL the questions, pick a quiet and casual coffee shop for a date night spot. Keep the conversation light, and show your partner your grounded spirit and ambitious disposition. Eventually the conversation will naturally gravitate towards more important matters, and the hushed environment of the coffee shop provides the perfect background for you to sit back and indulge in every detail your s/o is giving you. Try your hardest not to go overboard though, Capricorn! There will be plenty of time to plan AFTER your date.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius, you love to feel like you’re a part of something bigger than yourself, and getting the opportunity to be out and about in your own community. Next date night, find a local charity or cause you and your partner both connect with. Not only will you show off your sensitive side, but you’ll both be so busy you’ll have extra time to prepare for conversation. You have a hard time being vulnerable and it can take you a long time to open up, so you will be thankful for the time alone to collect your thoughts. After your event has ended, head to a coffee shop nearby. The experience of connecting over a shared value is a perfect ice breaker to get the conversation flowing!
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces, you are compassionate and sincere! Keep your next date easy-going, just like you, and plan a romantic picnic! Personalize it with some of your s/o’s favorite treats, and make them their own personal playlist for the occasion. Let your intuition lead the way, and show your other half how in tune you are. They’ll love to know you’re paying attention, and the more you allow them to open up the more you’ll learn! You aim to please, so all this knowledge you’re gaining puts you in the perfect position to continue to knock date night out of the park.
