It is common to see friends, co-workers or family members engage in activities and go out together. But fun and relaxation for two is a whole different story. Lovers who spend moments of complicity and fun set back from the rest of the world, it is quite rare. One-on-one outings are therefore a privilege that all couples, married or not, should organize regularly. This indicates that the couple prioritizes the relationship and desires to strengthen the bond. After an argument or to forget the daily stress, there is nothing like treating yourself to a break of relaxation and entertainment as a couple.
It is not really a question here of sharing one and the same activity per week or per month, but rather of varying the pleasures. If, for example, you go to a gym together once a week, try to find other activities that will break this routine from time to time. Adventure and innovation as well as changes in habits can rekindle the flames. Whether you are a man or a woman, invite your partner or organize surprise outings to show him your involvement in the relationship. Getting together for a fun activity or a short getaway therefore offers many advantages:
- This allows to fuel the flame outside the daily circle;
- Both will have the opportunity to reseduce, it is important to feel wanted and desirable;
- Outings are an opportunity to express their needs , to talk about intimate and primordial things without being disturbed;
- These moments are also an opportunity to take a real interest in what is happening in the life of his or her partner;
- Two-person activities show that the partners care about the relationship and continue to invest in keeping the bond strong;
- Lovers will have the opportunity to rekindle the connection magic between them;
- After an argument or a distance, outings and activities as a couple allow you to get closer and fill in the gaps.
15 activity ideas to share as a couple
In a couple, it is also important to share moments of complicity as a couple rather than spending moments alone. And when you decide to treat yourself to a little break of relaxation and entertainment with your darling, you don't need to look too far. Here are 15 ideas for activities to do as a couple to vary the moments of happiness.
1- Stroll through the streets of Paris or elsewhere

It may seem simple, but couple walks in a nice place can be very romantic. Walking hand in hand, visiting the shops and chatting about everything and nothing, with gourmet breaks in the restaurants... that's what reinforces the couple's bond. Choose for example the very lively alleys of Paris or, on the contrary, the quieter and more discreet alleys in the natural parks. You will have the opportunity to get to know each other and discover their tastes. You will not see the time pass when you are having a good time with your darling.
2- Go to the zoo

If you and your significant other love animals, why not go to the zoo? This place is not just for kids. There are so many fascinating things and surprising discoveries that will amaze even adults. This entertaining and rewarding outing will provide you with moments of laughter and sharing. If you want to be quieter, avoid weekends and holidays, as zoos are packed with families. Instead, go during working days and the zoo will be all yours (you may need to take a day off, but it's worth it).
3- Go to an art exhibition

If art is your common passion, or not, going to exhibitions or visiting an art gallery can be very beneficial for your couple. Cultural outings to museums and workshops, which are very numerous in France, will cause wonderment. Perhaps these moments will also ignite your desire to have passions to share as a couple. You can even sign up for one-day art classes, complicity and fun guaranteed!
4- See a movie at the cinema

Going to a cinema in Paris to watch a movie by projection is a whole different atmosphere than watching a movie at home. In the cinema room, everything is designed to guarantee you a better immersion. Emotions are therefore more intense. Buying tickets to the cinema to get together in order to decompress after a day of work is therefore an excellent idea.
5- Do karaoke

Karaoke is always a good idea for fun and entertainment. And if you shared these moments in love? If singing is your shared passion, you'll have fun duets and complimenting each other on your vocal performance. And if the talent is not there, that's not a problem: it will rather be an opportunity to laugh together. This is an opportunity to relax with your darling. It is also possible to sing in duet in the privacy of your home with a guitar or in front of a computer if you want a one-on-one evening.
6- A romantic picnic

What could be more romantic than a romantic picnic in a beautiful park or by a lake? Him with his guitar to sing a love song to his beautiful and tender while she delicately caresses his hair. Another interesting situation: the lovebirds are reading together a few passages from a book about love… Or, the couple is simply eating good things with wine, chatting and admiring the view. Surprise your darling with delicacies that you have prepared for the picnic.
7- Play board games

Go back to childhood and decompress by playing games from society to lovers. Scrabble, chess games or even card games will brighten up your Sunday afternoons for two. Leave your phones alone and challenge yourself in your favorite board games. And as you are in love, try strip poker, just to raise the temperature and motivate you even more.
8- Go to the swimming pool

Swimming is also a relaxing and fun activity to share as a couple. Choose a pleasant setting, like that of the great hotels in Paris, put on your best swimsuit and wade happily in the pool with your darling during the summer days. Then take a seat on the edges of the swimming pool to sip a refreshing drink and relax peacefully, always side by side.
9- A bike ride

In a park or nature reserve in France with a path for cyclists, bike rides are a pleasant activity to do as a couple. Many campsites and natural parks offer bicycles for hire, so you won't have to worry. Plan this moment and just breathe the fresh air and enjoy your moments together.

A week-end on a whim to please or surprise your darling will only fuel your love.
12- Eat in a classy restaurant
