Who said the fun has to stop when you can’t see each other in person?
Just because you are not in the same geography doesn’t mean you can’t continue having fun times with your partner. Sure, you may not be able to physically be with them, but with today’s technologies, your partner is just a click away. With these online date ideas, you can effortlessly continue to build a connection with your partner that’s as strong as your WiFi.
1. Have a Dinner Date
Since you can’t go out to eat together at a restaurant, have a dinner date in the comfort of your own home instead. Decide on the same meal for both of you to cook yourselves or order delivery from the same restaurant. You can choose to dress it up as if you two were on a fancy night out or keep it casual by ordering some fast food.
2. Workout Together
It’s important to maintain your health and stay physically active while being confined to your home, so why not exercise your body and relationship at the same time by working out together with your partner over video call?
3. Have a Movie Night
Although you currently may not be able to enjoy a movie with your partner physically by your side, there are many applications that synchronize video playback. This allows you and your partner to still be able to watch movies together at the same time and see each other’s live reactions over call or text.

4. Have Your Morning Coffee Together
What better way to start your morning off with a fresh cup of Joe and a chat with your partner? Tell them about that bizarre dream you had last night or talk about your plans for the day.
5. Paint or Draw Each Other
Use each other as inspiration and create a portrait of one another at the same time. Use any media you want and set a time limit to make it more challenging.
6. Take Virtual House Tours
Imagine what your future would look like with your partner by taking virtual house tours together. You can even make it a game by seeing who could find the most extravagant or expensive house. The person who wins can pretend to be a realtor and give the other person a virtual tour of the house themselves.
7. Show and Tell
Show each other your favourite items that you own, such as games, clothing, photos, etc. Talk to them about why these items are valuable to you and provide anecdotes that go along with them. You can also pretend you’re an influencer filming a live haul of your items, with your partner as your one and only viewer.
8. Play Games
Whether it be virtual board games, card games, video game consoles, or iMessage games, explore the endless possibilities of the gaming world together. There are numerous gaming sites and apps to download onto your phone for you to enjoy with your partner. This is by far one of the easiest and most accessible ways to have fun with each other when you can’t see them in person.
9. Take Online Quizzes
Unlike taking a pop quiz for Math class, online quizzes are actually fun to do. Take turns searching for any kind of quiz, ask your partner the questions, and read them their answer. You might be surprised what will come up!
10. Ask Each Other Questions
This is a chance to grill your partner with all kinds of questions and receive all kinds of unexpected answers, as well as open up to each other even more. You can simply ask your partner anything you’ve been wanting to know about them or play question games like Would You Rather. You can even spice it up by playing Truth or Drink, or go the other way and delve deeper by asking each other about your goals and aspirations or the lowest point of your lives.
Not being able to see each other face-to-face may not be ideal, but that’s all the more reason to make a greater effort of spending time with each other. Think of it this way: the more time you physically spend apart, the more you’ll miss each other. After all, distance does make the heart grow fonder.
