26 Cozy Date Ideas For Lazy Lovers


In terms of date nights, there's the classic dinner and a movie combo, or taking a lovely evening stroll through a park, or nodding your head in total sophistication while viewing art exhibitions with your SO in some esteemed museum downtown. All three of those can get a little tiring, can't they? It's OK. You can admit it.

Plus, let's face it: you don't want to leave your living room. Because the sofa is really soft and plush and you love it and you're tied by loyalty. If you don't have to go anywhere for date night, why would you?! We'll be asking ourselves this question until the end of the century.
