5 Date Ideas for You and Your Introvert Boyfriend
Dating for introverts can trigger anxiety in epic proportions. Keep in mind to consider the personality of your boyfriend when planning for date night to make sure that both of you will have a ball. If you are an extrovert, don't worry that you won't have a good time because we bet just seeing your guy open up in your one-on-one time will make you the happiest girl.
- Explore a museum for a day.
Remember when Mace and Anthony visited the BenCab Museum in That Thing Called Tadhana? And who could ever forget the romantic Guggenheim Museum scene in When in Rome? This date idea is considered a classic for a reason. It's even more perfect if your boyfriend is also into the arts so you'll have plenty to talk about. Tip: The Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo is within spitting distance of the city so be sure to put it in your itinerary.
- Build your dream fort.
We're guessing that this is every introvert's dream date because nothing beats staying in with boxes of pizza and loads of good movies to binge-watch. Fulfill a childhood dream by grabbing some blankets and building an impressive fort with just enough room for two. String some Christmas lights or light some candles to make the set-up even more Instagram-worthy. Here at the Candy HQ, we believe that sometimes the best dates are free, or at least cheap 'n' easy.
- Read to each other.
This is something that we don't see that often anymore but we should totally make this a thing again. Head on to the local park with your favorite book of all time and read your favorite lines to your guy. This is a perfect date idea for couples who love to read plus, there's something very intimate about sharing the lines that struck you the hardest with your favorite person.Make it even more special by writing letters and poetry for each other!
- Go stargazing.
We can't get over the stargazing scene in the finale of Descendants of the Sun and we know you're still hung up too. Stargazing is probably the most cliché of relationship goals but this date idea will always have a spot in our bucket lists. Take note that you wouldn't be able to pull this off in the city because of light pollution but we promise you, it is worth the drive. Make the most out of the quiet by engaging in meaningful conversations. Be on the lookout for shooting stars too and don't forget to make a wish!
An out of town trip may be hard to pull off because of school and ~*strict parents*~, but this date idea is the perfect way to get to know each other better. Imagine spending hours just talking in the car andsinging your favorite songs. There's something about the combination of being together and having miles of open road ahead that makes this date idea romantic.

There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
