10 Date Ideas That Are So Simple, They Are Now Underrated

Because sometimes dinner is just dinner.

There is the typical date where a guy takes a girl to get some expensive food and go to the movies.

However, that is overrated. Rather than spending a ton of money on a date, there are some inexpensive (and a lot more fun) date ideas out there.

1. Picnics

In the spring and summer, picnics are the best! Going to a small park (or your backyard), setting down a blanket, and eating some homemade sandwiches can make for a great date! Sitting and talking while observing everything around you is something people don't really do anymore.

2. Walking Around Town

Downtown areas are fun. This is a fact. There is always something interesting and there are plenty of quaint bistros and cafes to go to. Getting some fresh air with your significant other is not only good for you, but it is relaxing as well!

3. Movie Night

Turn on a classic movie and cuddle. Watching a movie in silence can be fun. Grab some snacks and make an entire night of it. Why not watch your three favorite movies together and eat a ton of food in your PJs?

4. Eating In

Take-out especially is always a good idea. Eating take-out in your room and talking about anything and everything never fails to bring two people together.

5. Driving Anywhere

I prefer night drives, but any drive can be fun. Cranking up some music and singing at the top of your lungs is a carefree experience. Explore places you both haven't been and enjoy your time together.

6. Naps

Who doesn't love naps? Taking a short nap and waking up next to your significant other is a great feeling!

7. Fast Food Date

I understand that not everyone likes eating fast food. However, grabbing something small and parking the car to eat can be peaceful. Eating and talking while you watch life go by is (again, I use this word) relaxing!

8. Board Game Night

I am a sucker for board games. I know that might be considered "nerdy," but as long as it isn't Monopoly, I am always down for a game night! Board games are underrated as it is, and therefore make this list.

9. Watching Netflix And Talking (Not "Chilling ;)")

Seriously, you don't need to "Netflix and Chill" with someone when you watch Netflix together. Just turn on your favorite show and watch it.

10. Grocery Store Shopping

I love grocery shopping with people! Significant others are particularly fun to do this with because it gives you a sneak peak into what life may be like with them one day.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

Naya Rivera Is Missing, And She Deserves SO Much More Than Being Labeled 'Big Sean's' Ex'

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

Naya's son's name is Lord and the entire collective is hoping the Lord is with him right now. I'm a firm believer in the Fear of God, I hope all of Naya's love is protecting Lord right now.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
