Fall in love

For couples, having a regular date night is essential to keeping the relationship exciting.

Below are ten fun date ideas to look forward to this fall.

6 Attend Oktoberfest

Go to your local Oktoberfest and sling back a few brews. In between pints, whisper sexy nothings to him in German.

7Brush up on your Shakespeare

Many theatre, dance, and opera companies' seasons start back up in September, so impress your honey with your sophistication and take in some culture.

8Scare yourselves silly

Besides the sheer fun of encountering boogeymen and ghosts, haunted houses provide the perfect excuse to hold on tight and squeeze each other's hands during the scary parts.

9Costume parties

Attend an adults-only Halloween party as your favorite romantic twosome – Romeo and Juliet? Tarzan and Jane? Sexy Nurse and Patient? The choices are endless.

Mix a little work with pleasure by getting together and raking the yard. After you've accumulated a large enough pile of leaves, indulge your inner-child by jumping in and fooling around.
