45. Unusual dining experiences for a date

Looking for a date idea in Singapore that feels truly unique? Enjoy a four-course meal onboard the Singapore Flyer or on the Cable Car from Mount Faber.

46. Cheat date idea: chill at home

Sometimes we don’t even have the energy to get out of our t-shirts and leggings or brush our hair (or shower?). Date night at home is a perfectly acceptable way to have a romantic time with your partner. All that’s required is each other and a little effort to show your other half that you care. Talk about something other than the kiddos, give each other foot massages, play a game of cards or just hang out in peaceful silence.

We hope this list provides you with some new date ideas in Singapore that will bring even more sparkle and love into your relationship!
