Couple’s activities aren’t just limited to traditional, straight cis-gendered partners. After all, who knows how to have a good time better than the girls?! That said, if you’re still curious about what you could do together but having trouble coming up with ideas, here are a few points of inspiration for you to ponder.
Meet Like-minded People
If you’re not sure what is fun to do in your area, meeting locals is a great place to begin! Just choose the way of making new acquaintances that works for you—online or offline—and start your search. But as you may not know anything about local spots where like-minded people gather, you can make use of dedicated online dating platforms for woman looking for woman ready to give you some advice. This can be especially helpful if you’re new to the area since connecting with the locals online will: a.) help you make new friends fast, and b.) give you real resident insights. Thanks to the geolocation feature used on every top dating site, you can choose to talk only to those lesbians living in your neighborhood. Ask them questions about fun activities for female couples in your area and get some advice first-hand!
While the main point of this article is to help you enjoy activities together with your partner, meeting like-minded people can also be helpful for finding activities outside of your relationship (such as when your partner is traveling or has to work). If your partner is busy for the moment, consider taking some time to explore new activities on your own to see if you like them. Assuming your experience is a positive one, you’ll then have something to share with your partner! If not, you’ll know something to avoid moving forward.
Choose Activities You Both Like
This step should be obvious, yet—for so many couples—it’s not! If you think about it, though, this actually makes sense. After all, it’s fairly common for people to tell their partner a white lie or two just to keep the peace! Unfortunately, this can result in miscommunications & unclear expectations down the road. While one person may be under the impression that their partner enjoys a particular activity, the reality could be that their partner hates that activity & only agrees to go along because they don’t want to hurt their partner’s feelings. Finding activities you both genuinely enjoy might be more challenging than finding an activity you both tolerate, but the long-term benefits easily outweigh the momentary inconveniences.
Play Interesting Board Games
Board games are quickly fading out of style, mainly due to the rise & convenience of mobile-based games. Fortunately, there are still plenty of them available for purchase, so finding one won’t be an issue: you’ll just need to convince your long-term or casual partner to play! Playing board games is a great way of spending time with your partner because they promote face-to-face interaction and real-world conversation. Add in a bit of friendly competition, and you’re in for a great night together! There are many different games ranging from simple setups to complex RPG-like board games, but we’ve gathered a few that nearly anyone will be able to enjoy.
Loaded Questions Board Game
The following two games on this list are individual games, but Loaded Questions is actually a series of board games! The idea of the game centers around asking questions to the other players getting to know them better as the game progresses. The best part about these games is that you can play them with multiple people or just your partner and choose a version based on the audience in mind. If you’re planning on having a “family” night, the On the Go or Classic versions would be great. On the other hand, if you’re trying to get a bit naughty with your partner (or just have a bunch of sex-positive friends!), the Adult version can also be a thought-provoking & entertaining addition to game night.
Love Battleship: a Game for Lesbian Fun
If you’re looking for a board game that’s perfect for your next naughty night, this is it! Based—at least design and play-style wise—on the well-known game Battleship, the game Love Battleship: a Game for Lesbian Fun is filled with sexy & romantic actions divided between “Foreplay” and “Intimate Activity” cards. Designed to put you “in the mood,” you’ll want to turn off your phones (or at least silence the notifications) before playing this game because you’ll surely be distracted by your partner for the remainder of the evening!
C’est la Vie! The Game of Lesbian Life
Created by Joanne Hartmeyer in the 90s’, this board game is a gem worth picking up if you see it around. There were only 2,000 copies ever made, but the game itself is unique on design alone! In C’est la Vie! The Game of Lesbian Life, players attempt to navigate life as lesbians, dealing with the ups & downs of lesbian life in an attempt to win the game by collecting the most “karma” tokens. The game is designed for two to five players, making it perfect for playing as a couple but also a great activity for when you have company over! Sadly, since this game was a limited edition, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a copy whether you’re looking in-person or online.
