Fantastic and inexpensive dates to go on with your friends or significant other.

5 Cheap Summer Dates To Try With Bae Once You're No Longer Quarantined

The summer is right around the corner and as things start to reopen, our dating lives will start to pick back up — whether you're single or in a relationship. So, if you're looking for some things to do in the coming months that cost little money and will still allow you to social distance from other people while getting close with your partner or new match, here are some ideas for you:

Go stargazing

Going stargazing is both free and romantic. You and your significant other (or group of besties) can grab a few blankets and pillows, buy your favorite snacks, and lie down just about anywhere. You can put down your blankets in the bed of a truck, on top of a trampoline, or on the soft grass. It might be beneficial to look up some constellations in your area before going stargazing; when you gaze at the stars, you might be able to find some beautiful shapes.

Go to a drive-in movie

A drive-in movie is a totally fun and sweet date to go on. Depending on your location, tickets to drive-in movies are fairly inexpensive. Make it feel like the '50s again. Buy some snacks, pick a good movie, pull up your vehicle, and enjoy the night. Whether you're enjoying the film with your friends or your significant other, a drive-in movie is a great experience.

Go hiking

Hiking is a great way to get active! Look up hiking areas or walking trails near you. Many trails have beautiful sceneries and are very relaxing. Not only does hiking build strength in your relationship, but it will also build strength in your legs and core. Going on a date that's also beneficial for your health is a win for sure. Plus, you get to enjoy the outdoors! It definitely sounds like a win-win.

Have a picnic

Having a picnic is one of the best ways to get together, enjoy your favorite foods, and enjoy the outdoors. Not only is being in nature with the one(s) you love therapeutic, but it's also a great way to get a tan and learn new things about your friends or significant other! Go ahead and pack up your favorite foods or snacks, and a big blanket or towel. When driving around keep your eyes peeled for some good picnic spots like the park, by a hiking trail, or by a campground. Bonus points if you hike to the destination of your picnic place!

Play sports

Are you and your significant other, or besties, athletic? Well, even if the answer to that is no, you can enjoy learning a new sport you both like together. Ping pong, swimming, tennis, basketball, and soccer are all fun ways to stay active. Not only are these sports fun, but you can bring out each other's competitiveness and (in most sports) compete against other teams or couples.

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.


CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

I Went To Disney For The First Time Since COVID-19 And It's Officially The Cleanest Place On Earth

I stopped focusing on the pandemic simply because, for the first time in months, I felt safe.

After a few months of self-quarantining, becoming suspicious of every cough, and blowing through masks like a medical school student, restrictions due to the pandemic are easing up a bit and businesses are warily reopening. While these public spaces may look the same on the outside, the way they function and operate is vastly different than a few months ago.

We've all been there. You see that super cute guy on your dating app of choice, his bio is funny, and then, the gut-wrenching feeling hits when you see their political views don't exactly line up with yours. He loves Trump, you can't stand him, or vice versa.

A lot of people will say you can get over politics, but I know from personal experience, as well as this survey, that politics play a huge role in whether a relationship will work or if we're even willing to swipe right on that profile.
