  10. Start a band. Do you both have musical talents? Why not start a band? It doesn’t have to be anything serious, but you’ll both enjoy playing together. You could even make up songs together!
  11. Go on Adventures. Try canoeing, mountain biking, kayaking, wild camping, rock climbing, bouldering, sailing, scuba diving, or surfing.
  12. Hit the local open mic nights. You might sing or watch, but going to open mic nights is a really sweet bonding activity. These types of hobbies for couples often feel more like dates, so they’re wonderful for couples who need some alone time together.
