Because you can do better than dinner and a movie... check out these unique date ideas for the month of May. 

Crack Each Other Up

Take a cue from your childhood and play MadLibs, using inside jokes that you know will have the other one in stitches. For something a little less G-rated, try the adult version of the classic party game, available at the iTunes store. You don't need anything more than your phone and each other!

Redo A Room

So maybe you'll never be on Fixer Upper, but that doesn't mean you can't unleash your inner Chip and Joanna. Get to painting and redecorating a room in your house — even if it's just by adding little touches to make it more you.

Have A Sing-A-Long

If one of you knows how to play piano or guitar — or any other instrument — sing through your favorite songs together. Grab a bottle of wine and make it an at-home karaoke bar.

Hit Up The Farmer's Market

And then see what sort of fresh dinner you can make with those ingredients.

Go To A Jazz Club

Live like you're in La La Land and dress up in your finest, see some live jazz, drink some whiskey (or your choice of beverage), and get transported to what will feel like another era...minus the Ryan Gosling.

Make Personalized Scavenger Hunts For Each Other

Have it go around your city or town, filled with clues based on your history together.

Play Games

Whether its chess or you geek out and play Catan, it's fun to get competitive. Competition is sexy, right?

Check Out A Band

See a concert — not just major headliners at huge venues, but check out smaller places which showcase indie artists and up-and-comers.

Learn About Your Family Trees

Dig up old photos or dig into what you can find on and learn all about each other's history. Maybe even book a trip to where your great great great grandparents are from.

Check Out A Sweet View

Find a great roof in your neighborhood — maybe it's your own, maybe it's on top of a nearby building, maybe it's at a rooftop bar — and take in the view together. Bonus points if you climb the stairs to get there.
