A date night consisting of nothing more than dinner and a movie can grow monotonous, especially after you've been with your partner for awhile. No one wants to sit around and watch the romance and excitement fizzle in their relationship. Take an active role in keeping things fresh and spontaneous with your partner with these creative date night ideas.

Refuse to spend another Friday night at home cuddled up with your boo watching Netflix? Are you tired of dinner at the same spot whose menu you've memorized forwards and backwards (and can list alphabetically?) Same here. Life is short, and we won't allow ourselves to waste away due to excessive boredom, so neither should you!

If you're in need of some creative date-night ideas to get your relationship out of its snoozefest rut, we've got you covered! Here are a few things that are sure to do the trick.

Go rock climbing

Show him you're a kick ass active chick who isn't afraid to put aside her stilettos and lipstick for a night of bouldering and top roping.

Attend a cooking class

Whether you're able to chef it up in the kitchen like his mom or not, a cooking class is always a fun way to spend time with your partner.

If you're not up for a night out, stay home and try a new recipe instead.

Hit up your favorite theme park

Do it for the kicks and thrills! Up the ante and head to the fastest and tallest roller coaster when you first arrive at the park. It's go big or go home time, baby!

Book an appointment at the spa/offer to give a massage

Who doesn't love a massage? It's a great way to relax and prepare your partner for more exciting things to come.

Head to a museum of mutual interest

Exercise your smarts and get cultured at your local museum. A couple that learns together, grows together.

Stay home and add a sexy twist to childhood games

Prepare yourself for corruption! Don't pass "Go" unless you take off an article of clothing.

Show 'em your moves

Don't be modest, we know you're a dancing queen! Hit the floor at a lounge or dance class and flaunt your awesome moves. There's no need to be shy.

Attend a concert/music festival

Nothing quite compares to live music. Whether it's a concert or festival, seeing an artist perform live gives you a deeper appreciation for their craft. Helpful tip: if you're heading to a festival go prepared with comfy clothes and shoes.

Sing your heart out at karaoke

If singing is your thing, belt out a tune at a karaoke bar. At the very least, it'll be a great way to release your inhibitions.

Get buzzed at a wine tasting

Any excuse to drink a glass of wine is fine by us. But why not make it a thing with you and your partner? Get tipsy and while pouring him another serving.

Take an impromptu road trip

Sometimes your best bet is to escape it all. A spontaneous road trip is a great way to discovery another locale together. You can also take it as an opportunity to try new things.

Feeling sexy? Skinny dip

Let's just say this should be reserved for private pools and jacuzzis. Nevertheless, when you're feeling naughty, a skinny dip will send a clear message while setting the tone for the rest of the evening. So, do you dare to bare?

Take the leap and skydive

Warning: this activity is for the bravest of the brave! If you and your partner are a bold pair, bond while free falling through the air. It's scary, but an experience we promise you won't ever forget.

Give ice skating a shot

Good on your feet? Then bundle up for a night of skating on ice. Who cares if you fall a million times? At least you'll have the bruises to prove you're a champ!

Go for a helicopter ride

Don't worry, this time you won't have to jump out of it! Take a bird's eye view of your city with your honey. It's more romantic than you can imagine.

Buy tickets to a sports game


If all else fails, at least you'll have some serious eye candy! Yes, Gawd!

Attend a burlesque show

They're considerably more tasteful than your regular old strip club. It also gets extra kudos for oozing oodles and oodles of sensuality.

Plan an overnight camping trip

Ahh! The perfect time to be one with nature. An added perk? Being all alone in the middle of no where forces you two to relish every moment together. Be sure to watch out for those bears! Eek!

Volunteer in your community

Whether it's volunteering around your community, or lending a helping hand at your local soup kitchen, contributing to the greater good of society is good for your soul and will earn you some extra brownie points.

Share some laughs at a comedy show

Who doesn't enjoy a night full of laughs? Think of all the cool inside jokes you'll be able to share afterwards.
