9 Date Ideas For Couples Who Are Quarantined In Different Area Codes

We're virtually inseparable.

9 Date Ideas For Couples Who Are Quarantined In Different Area Codes

With coronavirus keeping everyone at home to stop the spread, everyone's love lives are being affected in different ways. Many singles are lonely in quarantine, co-quarantined couples' relationships are being tested, and significant others who are quarantining in different area codes are missing one another.

If you happen to fall into the last group, here are nine fun virtual date options to help you make the most of your time apart.

Plan for a FaceTime breakfast or coffee date

FaceTime is the new phone call, folks. Especially if you're in a relationship and want to see one another more than you might be able to. Pick a morning to "roll out of bed together" and start the day by making coffee or sipping your morning coffee or tea together.

Netflix Party movie night

Sure, Netflix and chill is not the same when your boo is far away, but not watching a movie together is even worse! Of course, you can decide on a movie you both have access to on one of your streaming apps and start it at the same time, or you can download the Netflix Party plugin on Google Chrome, which will allow you to watch and chat while things unfold to make sure you're at the exact same part. It's almost like you're together!

Hulu With Me TV show binge-watch

Cuddling on the couch and bingeing your favorite shows with your partner is always the best, but unfortunately, it's not always an option. The next best thing? Download the Hulu With Me plugin on Google Chrome, so you can be sure you're watching the exact same parts of your favorite TV shows at the exact same time. Just like at a Netflix Party, it's almost like you're together!

Mobile game night

If you were quarantined together, chances are you'd probably end up playing games to keep yourselves entertained while watching movies or shows. Thankfully, if you both have smartphones, this can still be an option! Gaming apps like Draw Something, Words With Friends, and Trivia Crack are perfect ways to pass the time and have fun with your significant other from afar.

Play a question game

Schedule a time to talk on the phone or FaceTime and play a fun question game to get to know each other a bit better. Not sure where to begin? This e-book of 469 thought-provoking questions for couples could be a fun place to start!

Play Truth or Dare or Never Have I Ever

While these games often get a little spicy on their own, if you want to bring some extra heat, consider making them drinking and/or stripping games to play via FaceTime.

Create shared Pinterest boards and start dreaming

Whether it's a naughty board (for your eyes only), future date ideas board, wedding board, or whatever else, create one for you to both collaborate on. Laugh at the things you didn't expect them to add and talk about the ones you both love.

Start a book club

Pick a book for the two of you to read together and schedule times to chat (chapter by chapter, perhaps?) to discuss and, of course, end up going off-book.

Plan a FaceTime cooking and/or dinner date

Just like you did for breakfast, do so for din! Decide on what you both want to eat — pasta? pizza? tacos? Then prop up your phone while you make them! When you're both done cooking, bring your virtual partner over to the table, pour yourself a glass of wine, make a toast through the phone, and bon appetit!

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
