Learn something new together

Quarantining with bae obviously means you are spending prolonged hours with each other. Learning something new together or teaching each other a thing or two could be a fun way to keep the sparks flying.

Long distance quarantine? Video calls from the kitchen should do the trick.

Virtual dates

Dates are vital and even though the classic date may be out the window, this is your chance to ‘lawk cute’ for bae.

A ‘bevvies’ session via Zoom call is always a great way to still see each other during lockdown.
