It all started when a friend of mine asked me: What do couples do when bored? I knew I had to write an article about it!
Things to do with your boyfriend can be a lot of fun if you do them right. But sometimes it can be difficult to figure out what to do.
The actual truth of what couples do when bored is not as pleasant as you think it is (we will talk about that some other time). But instead, I want to answer another question that can lead to a more helpful answer, it is about “What can couples do when bored at home?”.
Some things are pretty usual that a lot of couples are advised to do. Just because they are usually, does not mean that they’re boring, or generic in any way. On the contrary, they are fun things, which is one of the reasons why they’re done ‘usually’.
There are so many amazing things you can do, you have no idea! Seriously! I will show you what exactly those things are, and not just things to do with your boyfriend at home, I will show you that and much more.
Season vs Activity – Tips
As you already know a certain season can impose on your activities. Now it is the same with activities/things you want to do with your boyfriend (I’m not talking about sex).
Tip numero uno: Before you decide to do something, consider the weather, and the season.
Let’s say a good fall activity would be a long walk somewhere in nature. Or a good winter activity would be snow fighting, building a snowman, or making snow angels.
Tip number two: Try to make the most out of the things that the season offers. Example: The winter has snow (in most countries), so why not take the chance to do something fun? Something romantic would be going out while it is lightly snowing, even dancing, why not?
General Things to Consider When in a Relationship
A relationship is not only built by the activities you do with your partner. It is deeper than that, so before we jump into the fun, sweet, romantic activities you can do with your partner, you have to consider a few things my dear friend:
Communicating with your partner. It is about expressing and sharing things with your partner. Communicating doesn’t necessarily have to be verbal (though it is a good form of sharing things); You can do it through little gestures and actions. The thing is to get and give understanding.
Understand one another. A healthy relationship is made out of two understanding people, or two people at least TRYING to understand one another.
Give gifts to one another. It is part of those little gestures I mentioned above. It is also a form of communication. I wrote “give” on purpose, you don’t have to just buy something expensive (though there’s nothing wrong with that), you can make something for them and show affection through the gift you’re giving.
Show that you care about them through certain gestures. Gifts, telling them you’re there for them, hugging, kissing, a cup of coffee out of nowhere because you know they’re tired, a little help when you can, etc. It is in everything that you do the indication that you do care (or not) about them.
What Can You Do With Your Boyfriend at Home? – Weekend Activities
1. Have Genuine Conversations
You must have good communication, especially verbal communication. Spending time with one another, asking questions like 36 questions that can make you fall in love, and adding some tea, will make the day unforgettable.
2. Tech Free Day
Put your phones aside! It’s time for boyfriend time! A tech-free day will allow you both to have more attention on one another without being distracted by another thing.
3. Invite people over
Organize a nice dinner, invite some people over. The entire process will have you both engaged, starting from choosing the guests to cleaning up the dishes.
4. Clean up the house together
You will both feel a lot better after doing so, and it can be a lot of fun if you want to make it so.
5. Draw something together
This activity allows you both to be silly and creative with one another. You don’t have to necessarily draw on the same paper. Whether it is drawing, or painting, you will have fun if you’re both into trying out new things.
6. Write something to each other (qualities you love about your partner)
Have some paper and pens, and start writing something to one another. It can be about qualities you love about one another, things you never said but wish you did, etc. It helps in creating a stronger bond between you and your partner.
7. Make a DIY project
What could be better than a fun, messy, interesting DIY project? You’ll find yourselves engaging so much in the process, laughing about it, and if you’re lucky and focused enough build something interesting by the end of the day.
It is one of the most fun, nerve-wracking, romantic things you can do with your partner. You will both engage in the process, and enjoy it on the way.
9. Make a cake
Both of you are in the kitchen, focusing on making something delicious you both will enjoy after it’s done, and while it’s done, is something you want to do with your boyfriend.
10. Board games
There are card games, and lots of board games that can be mixed up with drinking, stripping, and dares. Such games can turn into whatever you want them to turn into – knowing more about your partner, having fun laughing time with them, or spicing things up and having an interesting sexy time with your partner.
For those of you who don’t know, there is a yoga called couples yoga. You can find a lot of positions on YouTube, or on the internet in general. Following the steps will be challenging and fun!
What better than working on yourselves together? Clear your thoughts, and be grateful for whatever surrounds you (especially with your partner).
13. Youtube karaoke
This is one of the many things to do with your boyfriend when bored. Seeing your partner and hearing them while doing karaoke, especially when it’s just the two of you in the room, will make you want to join their enthusiasm and have an awesome time just the two of you.
14. TV series
Yes, it’s TV series. You know the time you can see it, you know the place you’re going to see it, and you won’t miss it for anything else, both of you. There’s not much interaction between you two, but it is enough for you to be close to one another, and discuss the series afterward.
15. Massage each other
Oh, you’ll be so grateful!! And it doesn’t matter if you’ve had a tiring day. The massage will relax both of you, and you’ll be a lot more appreciative to get one from a person you value. Oh, and it is a perfect sexy time booster…
16. Bathtub and candles
There are a lot of things to do with your boyfriend at night, fill your bathtub, turn the lights off, light up the candles and get the mood started. You can also play some music and have glasses of wine to make the night more romantic. The rest is up to you!
17. Play a sexy game
There are plenty, and I mean plenty of sexy games for you to enjoy with your boyfriend. Games like “Adult Truth or Dare”, and “Stripper Twister”, are affordable, and you can replay them more than once. Spice things up, and enjoy!
18. Make cocktails together
Make cocktails, drink from the same glass, taste it from one another’s lips, and whatnot, get creative! Follow recipes and add your ways to them, experiment, and enjoy.
Things to do with your boyfriend in the city
19. Go to the movies
Day or night, pick a good movie, and a good cinema, and just go. By the end of the movie you will both be holding hands and your hearts will be beating slightly faster because you cannot wait to get back home where it’s just you and him.
This is one of the things you can do with your boyfriend at night. It can be a super fun experience. The music will make you feel some type of way, you will be surrounded by strangers, and you’ll have a precious person beside you. Trust me!
Visiting museums can be a good day activity. Learning, and feeding your curiosity with your partner is one of the best things you can do together. Plus, you will get to see super cool things, and learn things you didn’t know before. No wonder it is usual…
22. Long walks
Long walks should be done very often actually… The sound the snow makes when stepping on it, the colorful leaves of Autumn, the flowering trees on a lovely Spring day, and the amazing sunsets of summer. Plus, it doesn’t matter what time it is (day or night), a long walk is a good idea!
23. Shopping/Thrift Shopping
You can go shopping during the day so that you’ll have time to do other things at night. Choose clothes for one another, you also get to know more about one another’s tastes, choose clothes for one another, and you’ll have a good memory whenever you see the item that the one you love chose for you.
24. Go to a park
Parks are amazing at whatever time of the year, whatever time of the day or night, except when it’s too windy, it can get a little messy; Otherwise, a park never lets you down.
25. Go to an amusement park
Amusement park, go, become children again, I don’t care. Just go!!
26. Have a romantic dinner night in a restaurant
This might not be everyone’s thing, but it’s worth giving it a try. You’ll have food served to both of you, you’ll have eyes on one another, you’ll have attention and focus on one another, a night to remember, why not?
27. Plant something together
This can be done whether you have a garden or not. Plant whatever you wish to plant, it will be amazing to watch it grow, and take care of it. It will be a good reminder of your connection. I’d suggest you do it in the daytime, however, if you feel like planting something at night, go for it!
Fun Outdoor Activities You Can Do With Your Boyfriend
28. A day at the beach
This is one of the very romantic things to do with your boyfriend. The wind blowing nicely, the sound of the waves, and the kids’ laughter that you hear now and then while your feet are getting massaged by the soft sand, will make a movie-like experience with the one you like/love.
29. Play sports
Find something you both agree on doing, and go for that activity. It can be tennis, badminton, anything. Even if it is something you’ve never tried before, it’ll be fun to learn/teach something to one another.
30. Motorbike ride
If you or your boyfriend can drive a motorbike, hop into that thing and take a ride! It will be a refreshing experience that’ll include adrenaline, which will surely help in strengthening the bond between you two.
31. Fly a kite
Another movie-like experience to have with your boyfriend. You can add a picnic to the view, and you’ll fall in love with the relationship you two have (notice: Relationship).
A hike is always a good idea. Period.
33. Random road trip
Pick a place to go to, get in the car, and drive. You can play some music, you can talk to one another, see new things, and do new things. It is about spontaneity.
34. Make snow angels
When I tell you it’s a magical experience, I mean it is a MAGICAL EXPERIENCE. You can do it at the same time, and trust me when I say that the best moment is when you turn your head and look at your partner while laying down on the snow. You’ll know when you try it!
35. Build a snowman
The thing is to engage with the activity, it doesn’t matter much if it does look like a snowman or not. Building a snowman can also lead to a snow fight, which is always a super fun experience filled with laughter and joy.
36. Dance in the rain
I know, sounds super cheesy but the adrenaline that you’ll get from the rain and the fact that you’re doing something ‘unusual’ will make you more appreciative towards one another and will feel pretty damn good.
37. Bike ride
If you make it long enough, it can get tiring. But, that’s the beauty of it. Getting back home after a tiring, fun bike ride with your loved one.
A little bit of refresh, a little bit of romance. Everything feels better with water, come on!
Lay that blanket on the grass, get the things nicely set, admire whatever view you’ve got, admire your partner, and enjoy the beautiful day.
40. Water fight
I’m not going to promise that this activity won’t make you want to kiss (and more) your partner. Wet clothes, wet hair, water in the air baby!
If you’re not a vegetarian, you’ll enjoy the entire process. By the end of the day, you will have a meal you earned and worked for, and you’ll feel a lot more deserving of it. Teamwork makes the dream work!
42. Wash the pet
Washy washyyy! I know that to some of you this is like a nightmare, especially if you’re a dog reading this. All jokes aside, it’ll get messy, it’ll get funny, and you’ll have yourself a clean pet, that you cleaned with love.
43. Get on a motorboat
This one might be a little bling blingy, but I’d recommend such a ‘ride’ for the ones that can afford it. The sea, the wind, the sun, and the energy will get smiles on your faces.
44. Travel by ship somewhere
I know, this might sound a little crazy. But it is a new experience you don’t get to have every day.
45. Lay down on the grass and stargaze
Recreate that Dear John scene, feel the fresh grass, and enjoy the stars and looks of your partner. It is magical.
The light and warmth of the fire will bring you closer together. And I know it sounds very cheesy, but it will get the mood started, and the fire within both of you will get bigger.
The excitement you’ll get when knowing that you’re outside, sleeping with the one you love, is priceless, and it is one of those interesting things you want to try.
48. Wash the car
You know that it is not just about washing the car. It is about that chemistry and that possibility for it to turn into a water fight that will add fun to the whole process.
49. Stargaze on a rooftop
Ah, another movie-like activity, that’ll get you both excited about doing something not so usual. Name the stars however you wish, who cares, it matters that you enjoy them!
50. Go for a walk around the city
Late at night when it’s quieter than the daytime, walking and talking about your day, holding hands, feeling cozy and warm – This is the type of walking I’m walking about, the ROMANTIC type.
51. Play Basketball
Get that competitive spirit on and get that game started, in the middle of the night, yes!
Other Activities (that include other people)
52. Couples massage
You can massage one another, but the professional one is another type of business, you know.
53. Double date
It is good to have company, discuss and hear other topics besides the usuals. Choose the people carefully if you want to have an awesome time.
54. Visit a place together
You can visit each other’s hometowns, or just find another place and explore everything you can.
It is once again to turn your competitive spirit on. A good idea would be to include punishments for the losers, or even rewards for the winner.
56. Watch a game
Go watch a football game, a basketball game, any game you like really.
57. Stand-up comedy
This can go in two ways, and it completely depends on the content of the stand-up that will be presented to you. But it is definitely worth giving it a try.
58. Learn a new activity together
Dancing, singing, painting, you name it! You can find online courses, but you can also attend them physically. It is a healthy sign to engage in new activities with your partner.
59. Taking dancing classes
Cha cha cha baby! It is a good idea to do it if you both are into the idea. At times men don’t like dancing classes, so advice from me would be to not insist sis.
60. Ice Skating
Those fallings, those hand holdings will help in giving you a beautiful time to remember.
If you don’t feel like singing, it can be fun to listen to other people give it a try. However, you know, I know, everyone knows that karaoke is a lot better when you participate.
Wild things to do with your boyfriend
Got your boyfriend by your side, it’s time for an adventure! Would not recommend this at night though…
As you may know, graffiti is illegal if you don’t take permission from the institutions to display a certain art in a certain place. So if you’re both into art, you can take permission, grab those cans/paint/brushes, and get the art started.
It is a fun, wild activity for sure. If you’re new to it, it’ll take a little bit of time until you get the hang of it, however, having your partner by your side while doing so, will be so much better, fun, and easier.
65. Give prank calls
It is on the list of the wild things because giving prank calls is not your ordinary type of thing. Go crazy, prank them b*tches!
Cheap and Easy Things to Do With Your Boyfriend
66. Play a question game
You can find questions online, there are tons of them. Make a list of questions, add some drinks, and get things started!
67. Volunteer at a retirement house
Old people are priceless(well, most of them), they’re wise (well, most of them), and volunteering shows the good sensitive parts of both of you.
68. Do or watch TikTok videos together
Tiktok is fun if you do it the right way, or if you watch the right videos. You can find helpful things, you can watch something funny if you feel like laughing, or you can accept the challenge and do a TikTok together.
I mean, what more can I say other than you’re welcome? It looks like I’ve done every single one of these activities… Well, to be completely honest, I did not, but I’d love to try a few that I haven’t yet.
Let us know what activities are you doing with your boyfriend this weekend in the comments.
Peace and love.
