Sometimes cold weather can be fun and even romantic when you’re out on a date. But when the weather is too cold, you don’t really want to leave the house. You may be wondering what you can do indoors on a date, especially if you’ve already done the dinner and DVD routine. There are still plenty of other things you can do during an indoor date that you may not have even considered. The next time the two of you want to have fun, but don’t want to weather the elements, here are two solid indoor date ideas. Both are more interactive than a movie and dinner.

Do You Fondue?

One great way to both surprise and impress her is by enjoying some fondue while watching a tv or movie marathon. Many fondue sets are inexpensive and easy to use. If the two of you haven’t eaten dinner, try for cheese fondue. You can dip practically anything that you’d want to eat with melted cheese. If you’ve already had dinner, try opting for chocolate fondue, which can add a romantic element to your date.

You can enjoy your fondue while sitting at a table, but we suggest making yourself a space on the floor in front of the television. Of course, you want to take the necessary precautions if you’re going to go this route. The last thing you want is to set something on fire or spill cheese everywhere.

Here’s a great recipe for cheese fondue and another one for chocolate fondue if you’re doing dessert.

Make sure to have a genre or theme night for your marathon. We recommend horror films or chick flicks to get her snuggled up close with you. You probably don’t want to have a marathon with too many drama movies. The “real” emotions usually have the opposite effect of what you’re going for.

A warm bowl of fondue and a fun movie series can warm things up on a cold winter night.

Make it a Game Night

Another great way to make your indoor date memorable is by offering tons of games for you and her to play. When we say games, we don’t mean video games. Even if she does like video games, do not rely on this as your only source of entertainment. They tend to drive your focus to the game, rather than on each other. Board games, however, make a great excuse to interact with each other.

You want to have several different games that the two of you can play. Popular games like Monopoly or your favorite card games are great. But you can also add games like Scattergories, Pictureka, or a trivia game that will get both of you thinking and talking.

You can even take some time to introduce her to classic games like Charades or Win, Lose, or Draw. If classic games aren’t really your speed, have some fun with Cards Against Humanity. However, you want to make sure you understand her personality and sense of humor before playing this game with her. Some of those cards can be pretty offensive to some people.

There is no limit to the games you can play and what you can do. If you need more space, rearrange your furniture so that the two of you have all the room you need. Who knows, if you make a close connection while playing the game, you can continue playing in other ways.
