Virtual Date Ideas To Try During Lockdown
If your current iso bubble doesn't include bae, don't stress the Q97 team are here to help. We have compiled a range of virtual date ideas to keep the romantic flame!!!
1. Watch Netflix together (kind of)
Netflix and chill might not be an option at the moment, but there's no reason why you can't still watch your favourite show together. the Chrome extension 'Netflix Party' lets you share your viewing experience with another special somebody. The extension lets you watch the show or movie together at the same time, how cool is that!
2. Play a game
It sounds simple but also a whole lot of fun. I mean - If you haven't seen their competitive side yet, are you even an official couple!? There are a lot of online games you can try for self isolation entertainment. If you both have gaming consoles, multi-player video games like Mario Kart or Streetfighter are classics.
If you're looking for something a little more low key , Heads Up is a hilarious game you can play through Zoom using your computer or even phone! There are also loads of games available online, like Cards against Humanity or 8 Ball Pool.
3. Have a virtual picnic
A date definitely isn't a date without food! So, why not incorporate some fancy food into your virtual date? You could prepare a little picnic from food you have available, roll out the blanket in your garden or living room and set up your camera for a little virtual picnic.
Or if you think you're both up for the challenge - pick an online recipe and both try to create it, you can compare the food's appearance during your virtual date!
4. Travel together — isolation mode
One of the best things about being in a relationship is getting to experience new things together. Although travelling overseas (or out of town) isn't an option at the moment, the internet has opened up a whole world of virtual travel opportunities.
Google’s has an Arts and Culture Hub, lets you you virtually tour over 500 different museums across the world, like the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City, the National Gallery in London and Musee D'Orsay in Paris.
