How can you have fun on a date if you don’t have fun? Lots of fun if you want to. For your next date, don’t just sit back and watch someone else have a good time on TV (sorry, but Netflix and chill gets old). Instead, try something that’s a little more active. You and your partner can play two-person games together.
People play games all the time, even if they’re board games, card games, or conversation-based games, to stay connected, show off their skills, and have fun on dates. Even if you’re playing games with your partner, you can learn a lot about them, but not in a creepy way. It lets you see different sides of your date or partner, says Christan Marashio, a certified online dating coach from New York City. For example, does your date support you, compete with you, or wait for you? No, they want to have fun. When you and your friend have to get through a virtual escape room, you’ll find out for sure. For a healthy relationship, “it shows you parts of their personality that are very important to look at.”
