We’ve got two words for you: road trip. Marni Battista, a dating coach and founder of Dating with Dignity, advises hitting up a quaint bed-and-breakfast or an Airbnb house within a half-day’s driving range—anything more than that becomes too tiring.
“Find a really cool local spot that has ambience, preferably in a place you can go to for really expensive desserts,” Battista says.
For a daytime activity, it’s simple: Explore and don’t plan it. “Remember, the best way to cement a relationship is to have experiences together that are new to both of you. And nothing accomplishes that quite like getting lost together somewhere new.”
