black-couple-playing-a-gameIf you plan on becoming more engaged with your man, know that it doesn’t have to be all about the bedroom. It is about the romance and the joy of being with each other. So we’ve come up with some activity suggestions that can get you both involved and that you can both enjoy. Not only will it bring you closer together, but you can really get to know one another and who knows you may learn a thing or two about each other. Remember don’t do anything that you are uncomfortable with; this can ruin the day or evening for one, or both, of you.

1. Poker Playing

If it’s that time of the week again for the lad’s poker night don’t shy away, join in on the fun! Even if you’re not the best poker player around Full Tilt Poker shows that more and more women are getting involved in the male-dominated card game. So put on your best poker game face on and show your man how it’s done and win him over with a royal flush. The great thing about a poker night is that everyone gets involved and no one is left out. If you want to keep it intimate, you can always spice things up by turning the game into a round of strip poker. Plus nothing gets the game more heated up than a little friendly competition.

2. Camping

A rustic outing can be extremely romantic just imagine being huddled together toasting marshmallows over a roaring campfire and spending the night sleeping under the beautiful starry sky. Besides being all cuddled and cosy, camping can involve outdoor adventure that can be enjoyed as a couple, which will strengthen your relationship and making lasting memories. By choosing a camping spot that’s secluded and remote you can really get to know and appreciate one another. As camping draws you both to closer encounters allowing you to have privacy and enjoy each other’s company. Take the bare essentials and head to the woods to spend some time alone on a mini vacation that won’t break the bank.

3. Cooking Night

Don’t think try and be the next Jamie Oliver and dominate the kitchen. Let your man in and share the responsibility of creating dinners that you two can enjoy together. Dinner is a time to share about your day and actually engage with your man deeply. Avoid opting for the frozen and pre-packaged dinner options. Try making a meal from scratch as this will mean that you will both appreciate something more if it’s homemade. This is the perfect opportunity to learn how to cook a new dish or try something new you’ve never tried before. It’s time to spice things up in the kitchen.

4. Romantic unplanned road trip

Just get in the car, drive and see where the road takes you and take an unplanned romantic drive to anywhere and everywhere. This is a good one for couples who don’t mind going with the flow. The spontaneity of it makes it all that much more exciting and the best thing is that you discover some new awesome places together and make some memories. With this newfound alone time in car it’s the perfect time to converse with one another in the car. Sometimes it’s great to just let loose once in a while and let life do all the handiwork.
