  • The date starts with the both of you selecting a couple of films that you both are interested in. You setup your cosy movie night space with comfortable blankets and cushions. Post settling down, pour yourselves a glass of your favourite wine and start the movie marathon.
  • After the movie, freshen up a little and head to your gaming setup. Pick a fun co-op game idea that you both can enjoy. A game that facilitates teamwork can help make the date more interactive and fun. Spend a few hours playing and laughing together. This helps in bringing down any formal environment and making things relaxed.
  • End the date with more casual talk, a recap of your favourite parts of the date, and a final toast to a fun, chilled out day, showing your appreciation for each other. It lets your partner know you enjoyed the date and there's more to look forward to.

Preparation steps:

  • Preparation is key to making this date super special even though you aren't stepping out of your house. Look for a couple of movies and video games that both you and your partner will enjoy. Romantic comedy, thriller, suspense, whatever genre you both enjoy, line up those movies. Similarly, for games, select ones that you both can play together, maybe a fun co-op campaign or a competitive one to instigate some friendly competitiveness.
  • Invest in some plush cushions, a comfy blanket to create your perfect cozy atmosphere. Make sure that your PS, Steam deck or PC is ready to use and loaded with the games you plan on playing.
  • Pop into a local supermarket in Ankara, or use an online delivery service to buy your favorite wine. Check if you have proper wine glasses. Make sure that everything is neat and comfortable so that you both can enjoy your games and movies with no disturbances

Some tips:

  • Making your own popcorn at home can enhance the movie night experience. Whether you prefer sweet or salty, popcorn is quick to make, and it can add a bit of an 'authentic' cinema experience.
  • During the games, don't be too competitive. Remember, the whole idea of this is to have fun and spend quality time together. It's alright to let them win every now and then, it's meant to be fun, not a world championship.
  • Pay attention to your partner, their reactions, their behavior. It would show you care and make them feel special. Ensuring they are feeling comfortable and having fun would reflect positively on you and make the date much more enjoyable for them as well.
