You totally want to have a romance like your favorite movie characters, and believe me, it is in reach. These ten different movie dates from your favorite Rom-Coms will give you and your significant other some serious inspiration to spice up your routine of Netflix and chill.
1. The Notebook carnival.
Noah and Allie’s first date was at a summertime carnival where he hung from the Ferris Wheel to profess his love. Now don’t go that crazy with the theatrics, but a carnival is an old timey date, that’s perfectly simple. Maybe your love will profess their love by winning you a giant teddy bear!
2. The When Harry Met Sally diner date.
Don’t fake the big O in the middle of dinner, but you can absolutely steal this cute date from Harry and Sally. Diners are incredibly low-key comfortable. You don’t have to try too hard to impress your date and you’ll both be able to enjoy each other’s company.
3. The Ferris Bueller’s Day Off museum date.
Take a break from work and go to a museum or gallery with your boo thing. Comment, (make fun) of the art that you see and take in each other’s different opinions on some great beauty. You’ll definitely leave feeling cultured AF, just like Jay Z and Beyonce after their Louvre take over.
4. The (500) Days of Summer ikea date.
It might not be Ikea, or even a date really, but take your bae with you to do some errday errands. Asking for their opinion on curtains or a gift for your best friend not only makes them more comfortable with your routine, but it will also make the day way less boring.
5. The Clueless old school movie night.
Cher and her wannabe bae spent the night watching the love stories of Tony Curtis to try to spark up their love. Instead of your typical movie night, amp it up with only movies released before 1960. These classic, over the top romances, will have you cuddled up with your love in no time.
6. The Chasing Liberty backpacking adventure.
Roadtrip! Only pack one bag with your essentials and take to the road to go on a trip with your significant other. Exploring new places with someone else creates special memories that you two will never forget.
7. The Wedding Crashers wedding crash.
This is only for the most adventurous couples. Create new identities and crash the wedding for the open bar and the thrill. Your’re Aunt Irma’s cousin twice removed on Uncle Bill’s side, of course!
8. The Reality Bites convenience store binge.
Smoke. Buy all the chips. Talk about existential things. The 90’s were a great time to be in love. You and your love are totally Lalaina and Troy. Brooding love looks so good on you two.
9. The Fever Pitch game date.
Even if you absolutely hate sports, get into the game. Drink some beers with your partner and enjoy the competitive nature that all sports games offer. You’ll both feel great cheering along with the home team, and even better that you both are cheering together.
10. The Breakfast At Tiffany’s, “I’ve never done that” date.
Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard take a Sunday walk around NYC doing things that they have never, ever done before. Take this date idea to your hometown and hit up that breakfast spot you both have never tried or go see that movie you’ve always wanted to. Experience something completely new together and watch the love grow.
