Ready for Things To Do For Fun With Your Boyfriend or Girlfriend?

Quality time spent with your partner is extremely important. The time that you spend together will ultimately be what strengthens your bond and keeps you together when times get tough.

text reads "things to do for fun with your boyfriend/girlfriend" and shows a man riding a bike while a woman sits on the handle bars and leans back to kiss him.

It’s also the time that you will use to get to know each other better, grow passions together, and just enjoy each other’s company. Without quality time, there’s little doubt that a relationship will quickly fall apart. 

But while dinner and a movie can be a great way to spend some quality time together, it also gets old really quick.

Things To Do For Fun With Your Boyfriend or Girlfriend

So here are some other things to do for fun with your boyfriend or girlfriend:

Play Cards Together

Okay, I’m going to get personal here for a sec. My Aunt and Uncle have been together for over 40 years now, and they still love spending time together. One thing they do every morning?

Play a game of cards or two! It’s super cute and has become a great routine to start their morning together. And it can be a great thing for you and your partner to do too!

Enroll in a Class

Is there anything that both you and your partner have always wanted to learn? Learning something new together can be a great way to spend time together and to bond over a new experience.

You can enroll in an in-person class, or take one online. Cooking? Dancing? Guitar? Knitting? As long as you’re both interested, this can be a great way to spend a lot of time together. 

Learn to Cook

Did someone mention food? Learning to cook together is not only fun, but can also benefit your diet and your tastebuds in so many ways! 

Get Outdoors

Nature is good for the soul. In fact, even just spending 5 minutes in the great outdoors can help to reduce stress and anxiety, and improve your mood! So why not get outdoors together?

Go for a walk, take a hike, have a picnic in the park – it doesn’t matter what you’re doing, as long as there’s some fresh air in the midst!

Make A DIY Project

There are so many things you can DIY. In fact, you can do all these DIY dates! Some fun things to do together would be to re-decorate a room, paint some furniture, or do some up-cycling projects like these diy upcycled flannel shirts.

Go on a Date

After a while, many couples stop dating. Don’t do this! We promise, it will not benefit the relationship. You should date your partner at least once a week.

Go on a movie date, go on an adventure park date, head to a board game cafe – just do something new. It will keep your relationship feeling alive.

We have tons of date ideas for you to try throughout this whole site!

Go on a Double Date

The more the merrier, right? Try some of these fun double date or group date ideas!

Plant a Garden

If you and your boyfriend or girlfriend live together, start a garden! Growing your own plants and food can be extremely rewarding, plus its a great way to spend some quality time outdoors. 


Did you know that helping others can actually make you feel better? Doing a good deed for someone else is one of the most rewarding things that you can do. Don’t believe us? Give it a try.

Volunteer at an animal shelter, a retirement residence, a homeless shelter – you will both feel better. 

Start a Business

If you’re looking for something fun, rewarding, and profitable to do together, start a business! Who better to work with than your partner?

Not only will you be able to spend more time together, but building a business from scratch could change your life forever – maybe you’ll even be able to retire young?


Communication is key in any successful relationship. It’s the best way to connect – and it’s absolutely free.

Whether you talk over coffee, over dinner, over a walk, or in therapy – talking is probably the best way to spend your time. 


Dancing is therapy all in itself. You can’t be sad when you’re dancing! And the best part about dancing with your partner?

It doesn’t matter if you’re a good dancer or not! Let loose together and just have fun – that’s what it’s all about. 

Spend the Day in Bed

Sometimes the best way to have fun is to do absolutely nothing – we all deserve that sometimes. Make it a whole bedroom date! So order breakfast in bed, curl up, and get ready for some serious Netflix and chill. 

Role Play

Since we’re already in bed….?

Try Something New

Did you know that novel experiences can help to keep your relationship happy, healthy, and thriving? Research shows that great relationships are built through experiences that we share together – and novel experiences help to bring us closer.

So try something new. It doesn’t matter what it is – a new restaurant, new food, a new place, even a new movie. 

Do Something Adventurous

Just like novel experiences can enhance our happiness in a relationship, so do adventures.

Adventures that are thrilling and get our adrenaline pumping produce dopamine (feel good hormones) in our bodies, that we will associate with our partners if we do it together.

So go skydiving, climb to the top of a mountain, do something that thrills you! Try a fun adventurous date that you haven’t done before.

Random Drive

Adventures and thrills don’t have to mean skydiving and dangerous things. They can be as simple as a random drive.

Hop in the car and see where you end up! Leave time to explore – and go wherever your heart desires. Use some of these fun road trip questions for couples to get the conversation going or a couples road trip game.


Okay, we know it doesn’t sound “fun”. But doing it together can take a dull and mundane task and turn it into a great memory. Throw on the tunes, sing into your dishrag, and clean the house together. 

Start a Blog

Chances are you both have your own social media already, so why not join them together and start a blog of all your adventures, travel, or hobbies? 

Couples Podcast

If a blog doesn’t scream your name, maybe you’d have fun starting a podcast together? You get to talk and share your opinions with the world – what job is better than that?

Plus, if it doesn’t work out, at least you and your partner got to learn a lot about each other!

Host a Party

Planning a party together can be tons of fun! What will your theme be? 50’s? Greek? Hawaiian? The skies the limit! 

Re-Decorate A Room

Spend some time changing up a room in your house or apartment. Find some ideas online, go shopping together, and spend the day making the place new. Try these aesthetic apartment ideas to get started.
