The urge for human proximity and desire to have a significant other has not waned because of Covid-19 but might have increased. Last year altered our lives in a very unexpected way, and redefining dating rules.
With the youth still trying to navigate through the virtual and socially distanced dating etiquettes, whether you are single or in a blossoming relationship, some tips that can help you date from home are as follows:
Creating a ‘date’ like feeling is a bit difficult when you are staying at home. And, your bedroom doubles as an office space/study room, your dining area as the weekend hangout spot, hence, leaving very little space for a designated date.
But, don’t lose hope as there are a few things that you can do to transform your home and make it more date-friendly. You can transform your balcony into a picnic spot or even light candles around your room. So, get out your best cutlery and play a romantic playlist, and you are good to go.
“What you talk about is equally important as where you are”
Even if you have known each other for a long time or just started dating, a date atmosphere can easily draw out conversation. Every day there is something new you can learn about your partner. Treat your days the way you would treat a normal night out and use that chance to rekindle the flame.
Try to create some rules, like not talking about the office, home, or slipping into menial chat. Once the atmosphere is right, you can try to flirt and maybe try out a little seduction. It is all about creating a ‘private world’ for you and your partner.
Yes, dating is so much more than just dinner and drinks. You can create some of the most memorable dates by doing different activities. And, since quarantine is making us even more creative than before, that is why this is the perfect time to do different and exciting activities with your partner. For instance, you can challenge each other to a cook-off or a painting competition, the possibilities are endless.
Over a period of time, it is possible to lose sight of some of the simple stuff, such as the sight of your partner’s naked body. If you are one of the lucky ones staying with your partner, you can make a pact of sleeping naked every night. Some studies suggest that sleeping in the buff heightens happiness in a marriage. (going skin-to-skin releases oxytocin, the hormones that influence feelings of emotional understanding)
Being honest about your sexual desires at first can seem daunting, especially if you are in a new relationship. So, if you think you won’t feel comfortable talking about sexual pleasures face-to-face, write them down a long message. And, in the end, consent is the most important thing in every type of relationship and it is extremely vital that this is maintained.
We hope that these aforementioned tips will help spice things up and provide you with some ideas that you can incorporate while dating from home.
