If you’re looking for some online games to make your date night fun whilst in lockdown then you’ve definitely come to the right place. We have searched the internet and put together some of our favourite online games to help you make the most of your lockdown date night. Although you may be thinking that with the current restrictions that are in place your date night won’t be the same, try to look at it as a temporary alternative way of dating and try to make the most of it. It could even be a good way to reconnect with your partner if you are already in a relationship, or a fun new way to get to know someone if you are single.
Just because you aren’t on a physical date with your partner you can still make an effort and dress up for the occasion. It will help you to feel as though you are on a real date by putting on the clothes that you normally would if you were going out, or why not make it fun by having a theme or making it a fancy dress. You could even incorporate these themes into some of the games that you play whilst on your date. Dating online is still a great way to get to know someone and see if there is a connection there before you decide if you want to meet up with them and go on a physical date once the lockdown restrictions have ended.
This game might take a little bit of pre-planning as you may want to both buy the same alcohol so that you can both enjoy the cocktails together. You could both create your favourite cocktails either one that already exists or be creative with your ingredients and make a cocktail that you think best shows your personality. If you don’t want to create your own recipe there are plenty of cocktails out there for you to choose from including a Mojito, Sex on the Beach, Long Island Iced Tea and classic Sangria. If you don’t like alcohol then there are plenty of mocktails you could make instead which will be just as fun and tasty!
This game might be best played towards the end of the evening after both of you have had a few drinks and are feeling a bit more confident! So as we all know 2020 has been one of the weirdest years and it’s pushed everyone and everything online which has led to a development in technology and social media apps.

There are plenty of sites with online quizzes that will help you to discover your couple personality or if you’re not already a couple, will help you to learn about your date and see if they would be a good match for you.
