Cute Virtual Date Ideas
Are you or your partner a sucker for cutesy dates? Does your beau swoon over your small yet thoughtful actions?
Perhaps you love how you make them blush with the sweetest gestures? You miss touching their flushed and excited faces.
Now that you’re miles apart, think you can’t make sweet gestures? I beg to differ because now you’ll redefine your cute times here…
1. Go for a virtual walk
Turning lazier and lethargic by the day? Then tighten up your shoelaces, put your beloved ‘boo’ on FaceTime, and set out on a virtual walk!
Go on a hike, preferably where there’s a decent network connection, and feel closer with every step you take!
2. Cook together over video call
Bring your inner culinary MasterChef to life and whip up something spectacular. Use the same selection of ingredients with your beau but don’t reveal your recipe.
Surprise each other with unique dishes. Although there’s no Gordon Ramsay to impress, expect some hearty laughs here and there over the video call.
3. Watch a movie together
Let’s take a moment and appreciate apps like Teleparty. Use it to organize your very own virtual movie date!
Choose your favorite entertainment from Netflix or Disney+ and enjoy a movie together, and share every emotional moment. Don’t forget to gather your favorite snacks too!
4. Take the Enneagram Test
During your virtual date, know each other better and indulge in in-depth discussion. Take the Enneagram personality test to learn more about yourself and how you see the world.
Know how long you’ve been dating. With the self-reflection from Enneagram Test, gain a better understanding of you both and get closer.
5. What about a virtual art night?
Time to get your hands messy and indulge in a virtual art date with your man. Nobody expects you to be a perfect artist… moreover, there’s no one to judge!
Surprise each other with fun and creative drawings. It’s a great way for you both to get out of your comfort zone!
6. Watch a concert
No need to be present AT a concert to enjoy the feeling of it. Streaming platforms like YouTube and Netflix have pre-recorded concert cassettes of many celebs!
Log into your streaming platforms and enjoy a concert from the comfort of your home. Dance, sing along, and groove to the tunes with your partner on FaceTime!
7. Play games
We’re talking about games that are fun to play—not relationship games, of course. Heat up the competition virtually even if you’re not physically together.
There are tons of virtual multiplayer games. Try them out with your beau and turn the day into something exciting yet cute!
8. Play virtual truth and dare
Feeling brave now, are we? Spice up your virtual date night with some sexy truth and dare questions with your beau.
Some dares might be out of reach because of the given situation, but raise the hotness level with sexy prompts. Don’t get surprised if the game takes a cheeky turn 😉
9. Order from famous restaurants
Wherever you might be, you are bound to have McDonald’s nearby! So what if you can’t go on a real date?
Take this amazing opportunity and order food from your local restaurants (preferably something similar). Chat away while enjoying delicious take-out beside your beau on the screen!
10. Start with your morning beverage
Start your day with a video chat with your beau. Inquire about your partner’s feelings about the upcoming day.
This morning pick-me-up gives you the opportunity to get some caffeine and check-in.
Ask about each other’s routines and schedules for the day. This will enable you both to have a deeper understanding of each other’s lives and accordingly you can set when you both can talk.
Think cute isn’t the best way to define your partner? Looking for something more romantic and lovey-dovey? Is your partner more into romantic gestures? Then cute dates might not work for you.
Though you may give it a try, take a quick glance over this…
Romantic Virtual Date Ideas
Whether it’s raining too hard, you’re geographically distant, or just not in the mood to go out, virtual dates can rescue the day.
So long your hearts are closely bound… so long your minds are interwoven… you can make it work even online. If you’re both in the mood for romance, nothing can stop you! So, let’s get some more ideas…
11. Play dinner delivery roulette
You and your boo must know a lot about each other. Possibly, if you get the chance, you’ll invite him over instead of a virtual date.
But don’t let the distance come between you two. Exchange addresses and plan a surprise takeout night!
Set a delivery time and deliver your favorite local food. Whether you’re a plate-sharer or not, have fun watching them unbox and enjoy your favorite food — and you, theirs.
12. Watch an erotic movie together

When you and your darling dearest can’t touch each other physically, the next best thing to do? Watch them pleasure themselves!

Compete against each other with a similar selection of ingredients and liquor to make it exciting.
Or, choose liquors and ingredients for each other and compete!, Create the best cocktail. Cheers!
22. Dress UP!
If there’s one thing we’ve learned recently, it’s that dressing up no longer requires an excuse. Why not plan a fancy dress night?
You can also up your virtual dating game while showing off a sexy and sultry outfit to each other, or even better, put on a striptease show for your significant other. If that ain’t sexy, I don’t know what is!
Put on a new outfit, try out that bright-colored eyeliner trick you saw on the internet, and deliver a bottle of wine to each other’s house. Voila!

No rule says you can’t go deeper with them, just because virtual dynamics are different. Don’t use the camera or the distance as an excuse to have superficial conversations.
Scared you can’t think of any conversation starters beyond “What’s your favorite color?”? Use ready-to-go questions online.
26. Read to each other
It’s clichéd, but sometimes you only wanna hear your partner’s voice. Is there a way to do so? Make it a tiny book club between you two. Read your favorite bits or a chapter to each other over phone calls.

27. Bring out the conversation cards
Whether started dating today or years back, a deck of conversation cards can deepen your connection more intimately.
Ask each other intimate questions while video chatting. Let the temperature rise between the both of you. Order yourself a deck of these amazing cards, and make your online dates even more interesting!
28. Plan a trip together
Planning a trip together is a fantastic way of deepening couples’ bonds, whether you’re apart or together.
Sit down with fine wine and your sweetheart on the screen, and delve into the various things that you wanna do together in this lifetime. Or, plan to visit each other… it’s all up to you!
29. Create an online shared photo album
Create a shared photo album on your phone or Dropbox. Scroll through the photos while talking on the phone. Collect old photographs from past enjoyable times. Or, take a trip down memory lane… collect photos from both your childhoods and high school glory days.

Start a game night of sensual truth or dare if you’re feeling playful. “What is your favorite position?” and “Are you open to toys or props?” are some examples.
Dares like “touch yourself there” or “take that off” can start a very hot conversation, while “touch yourself there” or “take that off” are plain hot.
38. Discuss real-life date ideas

When you get to meet them, you’ll never run out of ideas.
39. Look into new sex positions
Wanna take a risk? Make a list of exciting sex positions you wanna explore with your partner. Take turns explaining them to each other.
If you’re both interested in the same sex move, you know it’s definitely worth trying.
40. Get fancy!
Many people enthusiastically embrace the “sweatpants 7 days a week” revolution and never look back. If you guys, however, fantasize about red lipstick and crisp button-downs, then go ahead and get your glam on, babes.
Light some lights, splurge on a bottle of the good stuff, and turn on some soothing music to really make it a night to remember. While you may not be able to go out, you may still indulge your opulent side.
But hey, if you guys didn’t meet in the past six months to a year… let me assume, are you a long-distance couple?
Though you guys are kinda sad with the distance, y’all are the romance bearers of this era. I really look up to LDR couples for their persistence and dedication. So, this one goes out to you…
Long-distance virtual date ideas
Long-distance relationships are hard, but don’t let the distance take away all the sweet moments in your relationship.
Dates are mandatory, whether real or virtual. Indulge in a romantic date night over video call and spend some time with your loved one.
Wondering how that’s possible, don’t worry, I’m here with these…
41. Write military love letters to each other
Ever heard about the crazy, romantic, and sometimes sad love letters? Soldiers often wrote to those their loved ones.
For your date night, pretend you’re in the army, war-torn… write to your loved ones. Include little tokens of affection, maybe a chocolate or a rose, and mail it to your beau.
When you receive them, read them out while video calling. This will take your relationship to the next level!
42. Enjoy a traditional movie + a movie – LDR style!
Miss them during dinner and movie nights? Take turns and choose TV shows or movies and dinner menus.

Create individual Pinterest accounts and make a secret board about your relationship, such as relationship ideas, wedding planning, vacation planning, fantasizing, and so on.
To collaborate, invite your partner to the board.
Now you both have a new way of communication – post pins about events, couple activities, or useful information, and no one else will know (except your sweetheart).
49. Go to a bar trivia night
Are you a fan of pub trivia nights? Since you won’t be able to attend a pub night together, play against each other in real-time with QuizUp. There are infinite subjects to pick from.
To make it more interesting, decide on a prize for the winner that the loser must accept!
50. Snap the date away!
Be cautious about sending dirty photos— so send something sensual but not too revealing… that’s definitely your best chance.
Snap streaks are so fun to do and why not put this as a date idea? Enjoy your date night and snap away, love birds!
Long-distance relationships are difficult, but don’t let the distance rob you of your relationship’s wonderful moments.
Dates are necessary, whether they are real or fictional. However, if you completed another year of togetherness… you need something more. Let’s find more from here…
Virtual anniversary date ideas
It must be hard to be apart from each other, especially during your anniversary. But just because you aren’t together 24/7 doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice your favorite day! It doesn’t matter whether you physically get to meet each other.
Of course, physically spending time together is important… but if it’s not possible, don’t sulk. Why waste this special day brooding over.
With the right effort and creativity, let’s keep the spark alive even though you’re thousands of miles apart…

Use this peaceful and creative date idea to strengthen your bond even more.
55. Send each other voice memos
Take the time to record beautiful messages on your phone and regularly send them to your significant other. Say “I love you” or read a poem.
In any case, your significant other will value being able to hear your voice anytime they require it, and vice versa.
56. Spend a few bucks on matching jewelry
Matching bracelets, rings, or necklaces will always remind you two of each other. Have the pieces engraved with initials or a special date to take it a step further.
Just imagine, you and your beau walking around (when you meet of course) with matching bracelets or necklaces… cute, right? So grab your custom jewelry now!
57. Take a funny quiz online together
A short Google search will turn up a slew of couples and long-distance relationship questionnaires.
Assess your compatibility… since most aren’t scientific or backed by researches, share a good laugh over it. They’re a fun pastime even if you’re physically separated.
58. Set Goals
Use your time apart as an incentive to achieve personal objectives. For example, until you’re reunited with your love, promise to abstain from drinking for the sake of your health… or, challenge yourselves to work out three times a week until you meet.
Find a way to get there together, whatever you’re aiming for.
60. Delve into deeper conversations
It’s fine to admit to each other that you’re having trouble bridging the gap. Long-distance relationships aren’t easy, so it’s crucial to stay in touch and be honest about how you’re feeling, especially if it’s negative.
In the long run, sharing these unpleasant emotions can only help both of you, and chances are you’re both feeling the same way.
Anniversary is a happy occasion… however, you don’t need dates during happy times alone. Sounds bizarre? Well, don’t you need one another the most during the darkest hours?
During the pandemic and the recurring waves of the virus, you need more dates to stay mentally strong. So, let’s check these…
Quarantine Virtual date ideas
It’s difficult to stay physically far from your lover. It’s so hard to feel close and connected without actually being around.
Moreover, if the virus is raging in your area, you might be super-depressed. Your partner might also feel worried for their loved ones.
You need emotional support badly but can’t meet one another for quarantine? Let’s beat the quarantine loneliness here…
61. Visit a novelty museum

Check out the museums online and get rid of the quarantine blues together.
62. Take a virtual cooking class
Cooking workshops take remote dinner dates to the next level, and they’re a lot of fun. Choose a dish to learn to cook together before your date.
Then, either enroll in a live virtual cooking class or pick a recipe tutorial to follow online. Go grocery shopping before the date. Meet up on Zoom when your date arrives and prepare your meal together.
63. Watch some animal cams
Can’t go to the zoo with your beau, so why not bring the zoo home? One of the cutest online dating ideas is watching animal webcams together.

64. Play some online jeopardy
Jeopardy is a classic game show… It’s both entertaining and competitive. Both of you choose two categories and a fifth category that you’re both familiar with.

69. Try out some new tech
Virtual dates are an excellent opportunity to check out new technology with your partner.
To begin, select a device or program to use. Then place your order and before the date, resist the impulse to try out the new tech device.
Drones, GoPro cameras, and virtual reality apps are some of the technologies you and your spouse can experiment with.
70. Indulge in some online shopping
Miss the times when you shopped together? Well, sulk no more, and enjoy your virtual date with online shopping, just like the old times…just online!
Share your screen and check out apparel or accessories for your partner! Either enjoy each other’s company and window shop or buy something.
Being unable to be physically there with your lover might be challenging. It’s impossible to feel close and connected when you aren’t.
While a date night on video isn’t the same as a date night in person, it can still be fun, especially if you come up with a unique concept. Wondering how creative you can get? Let’s know it all here…
Creative Virtual Date ideas
Distancing when you’re in love is undoubtedly hard. So, virtual dating swiftly became the new norm in this era. We pretty much do everything else digitally.

73. Plan a digital campfire night
When you guys can’t snuggle up in front of the fire, digital campfires are the next best thing. These are basically indoor camping experiences. They come with classic ghost stories s’mores.

Use cloud-based photo albums like Photobucket and iCloud, as well as social networking sites like Instagram and Facebook.
Don’t forget to have dreamy convos and reminisce about the old memories!
Think the creative side doesn’t suit you? Nothing to feel ashamed of. Honestly, I’m not that creative either! Wondering what I do?

Check out these romantic and one-of-a-kind date ideas and ramp up the dating game!
81. Write a story
Are you both creative? Collaborate on a story! one person may write the characters while the other writes the setting… alternately write scenes without telling the other your thoughts… or go mad-libs style and take turns writing the next word. Allow your imagination to run free!
82. Make a slideshow of your favorite photos
Make this an occasion to learn about each other’s lives. Show each other pictures of places, pets, and vacations.
Search through your iCloud storage for images. Even better, if you have real photo albums, bring them out. It is for this reason that they exist.
83. Give a tour of your life with Google Maps
The incredible degree of detail in Google Maps allows you to literally walk through the streets of almost any destination on the planet.
So, take your date on a tour of your college campus, a hike on your favorite trail, or even a tour of your childhood home. Find out if you ever visited the same places.
84. Visit a candy store
It’s all about sweetness on Valentine’s Day… If you and your partner have a sweet craving, go to a nearby candy store and pick out your favorites!
Stay on a video call while you sample the delectable delights together in your localities. Even with all the distance, we feel much closer to each other this way.
86. Go on a virtual double date!
Organize a four-person video conversation with another long-distance couple. Put some pasta on the table. Discuss each other’s lives and how they cope with the vast distance between them.
Share some of your own experiences with your partner, and keep an eye out for the other couple! Enjoy some cuisine while listening to music!
87. What about a book-club night?
Choose a book to read and discuss, or a long-form article if you’re short on time. Pick something light and romantic, and read out your favorite passages to your significant other.
This can be such a romantic way of spending a date night. This might also deepen your connection with your lover.
88. Be a (nude) model
Remember the sultry Titanic scene where Rose says, “I want you to draw me like one of your French girls.” To your partner’s joy, don your own beret and undress.
The most thrilling option is for both of you to participate as naked models. It’s thrilling and will lead to a romantic night.
89. Eat seductively
Slurping your soup isn’t the best way to get into a sensual mood, but eating sensuously is. Look for some guaranteed sexy cuisine (think strawberries, chocolate dips, whipped cream, and champagne).
Make it a contest to see who can lick or suck the food in the most sensuous way possible, and prepare to eat your way to an amazing night.
90. Paint and drink wine
Choose something you both like to paint — an object, perhaps, or a mood? Drink wine while you talk about it.
If you’re clearly the superior painter at the end of your painting session, make sure to reassure your partner that this wasn’t a competition, fortunately for them.

5 Tips to enjoy virtual date night just as much as real-time date
So, some decide to date remotely… However, that really doesn’t help to find the best virtual dating ideas.
When a communicating device separates you from your partner… sometimes, you can’t understand if they’re happy… or if they go with the flow to make you happy. So, let’s find a definite way to make your dates successful!
1. Break the cycle
Be inventive. Make an effort to be romantic. Make it a candlelight supper if you’re having dinner.
It’s very easy for people to fall into routines… and even before you know it gets boring and monotonous.
So, break the monotony and try something creative and unique for your virtual date nights! Keep the spark alive and have fun!
2. Do something meaningful
It’s okay to have fun on your dates… but sometimes try doing something that means something to you both!
Your partner will feel validated, cared for, and important. So plan something beautiful and meaningful for your next virtual date.
Since you’re apart, it’s easy to be sidetracked. Make an effort to be present and concentrate on your relationship rather than on household chores
3. Be understanding
When your time together is limited, timing is crucial. To keep long-distance relationships going, know when you’ll see each other. Trust that the other person will follow through on their commitments.
Talk to your significant other, learn about their schedule so that you can find a perfect time to have a date night.
4. Don’t play the blame game
Every relationship has its own ups and downs. And it’s okay to sometimes disagree with your partner. Don’t pressurize your partner for a date. Both of you have different routines and habits.
Sometimes your partner won’t feel enthusiastic like you… and that’s okay. Instead, take this opportunity to communicate and understand your partner’s feelings and comfort them.
Maintain a pleasant attitude and partake in your partner’s favorite activities. Express your concern and affection for your companion.
5. Do something so that both of you can have fun
Don’t try dates only of one person’s liking. This will only lessen the interest… it’ll be boring and sulky.
Spend your virtual dates with common fun activities. Engage in a great way to draw you both in closer.
A word from ThePleasantRelationship
Whether you’re quarantining, in an LDR, or just not ready to meet your babe IRL… virtual dates are always ready to rescue.
However, focus on your common interests, don’t assume they’ll like all the ideas in this list. Love grows on understanding, compromise, and selflessness.
Arrange your dates based on what you both like. It’s important to remember that it’s not about what you do on your virtual date night, but rather who you spend it with.
As long as you’re together, any of these date ideas will be a blast. It’s the company that counts, not the luxure of the date.
So, lovebirds, shower your sweetheart with love and take in the love they pour on you… Don’t forget to create the most unforgettable experiences of your life!
