If you're tired of shelling out money on date night — those $5 tacos add up fast — why not try a few free date ideas inspired by your favorite TV shows, instead? Whether you play trivia, explore your city, there's so much to do as a couple, no credit card required.
Go into full pillow fort mode and camp in your living room, or pack a few important items (a flashlight, sleeping bags... snacks) and spend the night together in a tent, like Jane and Michael in Jane The Virgin.
Friends is chock full of date-worthy episodes, including the one where they play trivia. Quiz each other on categories like "biggest pet peeve" and "ancient history" and see who wins!
With the election coming up, spend an evening talking politics, like Rainbow and Dre in Black-ish. Catch up on the news, make sure you're both registered to vote, and see if there are any volunteer opportunities you can get involved with.
Sometimes the best moments as a couple are the simplest ones, like how Beth and Randall from This Is Us eat nachos together in the kitchen. Simply pour some in a bowl, crack open a couple of ginger beers, and call it a date.
Remember Friday night dinners on Gilmore Girls? (Of course you do.) Start your own tradition of staying in on Friday nights — instead of going out and spending too much money — and cooking whatever's left in the fridge.
While you may not be able to sit in an actual class, like in Community, you and your partner can expand your minds on the world wide web by taking an online class. Look into art, foreign languages, or whatever subject strikes your fancy, and learn together.
