After dating someone for a while, coming up with new date nights can start to become difficult. Going out on dates shouldn't be a chore instead of something fun. It seems like the two of you start to do the same two things, and it may seem to get old after a while. Don't get me wrong, if you like someone and love to spend time with them, any time with that one special person is unique in its own way, but sometimes it's just nice to mix it up.
See a movie at the Kentucky Theater
Although I have never been to the Kentucky Theater myself, I would definitely love to go with my boyfriend on a cute movie date. This theater in downtown Lexington would be so much better than your average movie date night.
Head over to the distillery district and try a local beer
Get out of your comfort zone and try out a new, unique beer. Try all kinds and enjoy some appetizers with your S.O.
Go ax throwing
I’ve only been ax throwing once, and I must say, it was a lot more fun than I ever though it would be. Since there is ax throwing in the Distillery District in Lexington, end your date night with some Good Fellas pizza.
Go go-cart and have fun at the arcade in Malibu Jacks
Truthfully, there is nothing I love more than a fun arcade outing. You and your S.O. are in for a treat at Malibu Jacks!
Get active and go for a jog at the Arboretum
Something I keep telling my boyfriend I want to go do together is go for a run together. Although food always sounds like the better option, going for a jog in the arboretum is on our list of date ideas for the future!
Ditch all electronics and play a few board games

My boyfriend and I are too competitive. If we started playing a board game or card game or any type of game, then we would be stuck there all day moving on to the next game just to try to beat each other.
