30 cute gay date ideas

1. Do a picnic on the living room floor

Using mostly/all existing food from your fridge and cupboards – maybe splurge on a decently priced bottle of wine. Here are a few of our favorite wines.

2. Go to a local coffee shop

Get local. Especially if there is a local gay/lesbian coffee shop that you can support. Take along a book or magazine and cuddle up on a bench or next to each other and enjoy some education/entertainment.

3. Go ice skating at night

Clearly, this is a winter activity, unless you’ve got indoor rinks near you. Take your hubby or boyfriend by the hand and show him your best flip, lutz and axel. Plus it makes for a great way to insist on a free massage for him after.

4. Cook dinner together

Try using mostly/all existing food from your fridge and cupboards to keep the costs down. Then switch on some sexy music and dance a little while you’re waiting for things to finish in the oven.

5. Workout together

You spot him. He spots you. Put in an intense workout, then maybe get another intense workout later that night. Here are a few gay fitness tips you should include.

6. Do a couples vision board

You’ve got dreams and aspirations. Why not show each other. Check out this video.

7. Go to yoga together

Yoga makes intense bed workouts more fun. Plus you’ll feel better and be more flexible. 

8. Challenge another couple to a game night

Grab your besties and do a couples date with games. Two of our favorites are Rummy Cube and Monopoly Star Wars Edition!

9. Hit local landmarks

Get out in your own city. See museums and parks to take a fun and whacky picture of each other. Share the most off the wall on Instagram and Facebook. When you do, tag us here!

10. Go hiking together

Get out in the great outdoors, maybe with a surprise lunch packed in your bag for when you reach your summit – again, using mostly/all existing food from your fridge and cupboards.

11. Shop a flea market together

As they say, “One man’s junk…” Okay, get your mind out of the gutter. Make this one a game to see who can find the most interesting or cheapest “best buy.”

12. Color adult coloring books together

Throw on some good music, open a bottle of wine or six pack and get to coloring. Here are a few books we love.


13. Do a spa night

Sit in a bubble bath together, complete with exfoliating body scrubs followed by facials, foot massages and nail treatments. This, too, is better with reasonably priced wine.

14. Play cards or a board game

Just like above, but this one is just for the two or 3 of you, no other couples allowed. With this one, you can even get a little naughty with sexy dice or cards.  


15. Have an evening of playful sex

This one is all on you. Have fun.

16. Take a dance class together

In many cities there are dance classes, from pop to classical to swing. Get out there, learn a bit, then impress the hell out of your friends at the next wedding or party.

17. Bar hop the gay bars

The key to saving some cash on this one is to only have one drink or even split one at each bar and try to strike up a coversation with at least one new person. It gets you social and helps save a few bucks. Remeber to use Uber or Lyft if you plan on drinking. Use this to get $5 in ride credits from Lyft.

18. Do a puzzle together

This is a great way to have some conversation. Plus, you don’t have to look into each other’s eyes when you’re asking that tough question. This one is could end up being a great picture for your place

19. Hit up your local drag show

Show some love to your local queens. They werq hard. Try and max yourself out to one drink per person before you go home to watch Priscilla Queen of the Desert on Amazon Prime or iTunes.

20. Learn something together

Check out your local library for classes or hit up Udemy or Teachable and don’t forget to check out our Credit Card Pay Off Course.

21. Find something fun, free or cheap to do from your local gay rag

If you live a city or town of any decent size, it’s likely that you have a local gay rag. Check out the events to see if there’s something free or extra cheap. Try something new!

22. Make a video telling everyone why you love each other

Who doesn’t ❤️ seeing love stories online? So do a Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or YouTube Live or post. We need love LOVE on social media.

23. Spend the whole day in bed

It’s not all about the sex. Sometimes it’s just fun to be under the covers together. You can even grab your laptop or tablet and watch some videos together. Maybe a new pair of underwear or two might make it all the more fun. 

24. Send each other sexy texts

If you can’t be with each other, send each other sexy texts. Use words, pictures or even videos. Then when you do see each other. Boom!

25. Make cookies or cake together

Bakers kneed it more. 😘 Whether it’s savory or sweet, get into the kitchen and heat things up. If you’re not the from scratch kinda guys, check out these tasty treats.

26. Go to your local sex shop

Get the urge on. Go to your local sex shop. Set a budget, like $10 and see what you can each find. Sometimes just being in one gets us all ready. You may not need to even buy anything.

27. Watch a foreign movie on Netflix or Hulu

Sign into your favorite streaming service and find something a little different. Check out gay foreign movies. You’ll find a ton of titles that will help you both get on the couch and in the mood.

28. Go sledding

Again another one for the winter. Get your kid thing on. Then head home and either show or take a bath together to warm things back up.

29. Build a fort in your living room

Pretend your 9 again and build your fortress. Then let him try to figure out how to get in.

30. Go thrifting

See who can put together the most stylish outfit for $25. Make it a date and then maybe you’ll get to see each other take it all off.

  1. Ideas are amazing. But still, so many people think that the gay relationship is not right. That’s why people like us don’t reveal our relationship outside. It’s not safer for us to go on date outside. But yes I liked some ideas that we can do indoor too. Thanks for the suggestion.
