What are some good virtual date ideas?

These are some odd moments for dating due to the pandemic, and the need for virtual date ideas doesn't appear to be fading away anytime soon. People are euthanizing dates they met on Tinder or whatsoever, zoom happy hours have eliminated the need to ever wear pants on a date, and the cast of Romance Is Blind is basically saying to themselves, "Told you so." Love in the era of the coronavirus is unusual, to say the least.



Socially separated romance, on the other hand, is flourishing. Online dating has rapidly become the new standard in an era where we do pretty much everything else virtually. Here are some creative virtual date ideas to prevent your virtual drinks from getting boring while keeping a healthy social distance.


In your pajamas, visit the Louvre:

Due to sweeping shelter in place orders, museums and galleries—always the classiest of date options are largely closed. But that doesn't mean you can't immerse yourself in culture through your own private virtual tour of the world has ever known most exquisitely curated collections. It's kind of like your own personal Bachelor date.


Laughter Therapy:

You've been sharing stories over the phone for a few calls—the time it's to call in the pros. Invite any instructor through laughtermovement.com who presents live activities and vignettes of actual human experiences which will make you laugh, cry, and find new material for your daily phone calls with your virtual boyfriend.

Have a good time!

The laughter movement is hosting laughter therapy sessions featuring up-and-comers from all over the industry, and you're welcome. As innovative comedians attempt a pandemic-friendly format with no drink minimum, this digital experience takes place live between Zoom and a Google Doc. During the broadcast, your live commentary with your date is a whole new level of social-distance-friendly heckling.


Organize a quiz/ trivia night:

Remember Sporcle, the popular online trivia site from about a decade ago? We're all set to make a comeback. You'll learn a lot about your date in the process, whether you're naming candy bars or listing all the presidents in record time.


Netflix and Chill:

We've already binge-watched Tiger King, and your date has as well (and if they have not, they should go do that right away). Grab your favorite pillows to make a cozy tucked-in vibe, select a movie, and host a Netflix Party, even if you can't quite cuddle. This add-on supports interactive video streaming, video comments, or live chats, allowing you to share your reactions with others.


Drop some info on the table:

Create your own private TED Talk. Choose your area of expertise, build a serious slideshow, and give a presentation to your peers. You're an expert in something, and it's something you can tell your date about.


It might seem strange to have a virtual date on Zoom, but it's becoming more common as more people meet online in different places, or simply separated by work and family obligations. Don't be put off by the strangeness at first; come up with imaginative ideas to get to know your date better, and search for stuff in general to find more interesting date ideas.
