As the leaves begin to turn and the weather gets colder, the impulse to stay in and hibernate gets stronger, which can spell boredom and relationship ruts. Fire up your love life with fun fall activities, and you'll have enough spark to keep your passion burning red hot all winter long!
Keep reading to learn which date ideas will help keep the romance alive with the different zodiac signs...
The Ram isn't a conventionally romantic sign -- quiet nights in front of the fire and candlelit dinners bore Aries to tears. They need action and excitement, and when the adrenaline flows, so does the passion. This sign would dig the competitive, jubilant atmosphere of a football game. Just hope that their favorite team wins -- the only thing an Aries hates worse than boredom is losing.
When it comes to romance, the Bull likes to keep it traditional. A horseback ride through the country, with rolling hills and dazzling fall foliage, has enough old-fashioned romance to put them -- and keep them -- in the mood. Find a cozy country inn for dinner, and don't skimp on the bill -- this sign likes quality and usually assumes that the more you pay, the more you get.
Brainy Gemini is always interested in what's happening on the political landscape, so a rally would fit the bill. Not only would it give them the chance to quench their thirst for knowledge on the issues, it would give the two of you hours of discussion and debate afterward. If you can keep up your end of the conversation, you can steal your Gemini's heart. Are you up for the challenge?
Crabs spend a lot of time taking care of everyone around them, so their favorite dates are ones where they get to kick back and relax. Make your Cancer some hot cocoa, grab some blankets and cuddle up in front of a fireplace or an old romantic movie like Breakfast at Tiffany's or An Affair to Remember. And don't forget the marshmallows and whipped cream -- the more decadent, the better for this sign.
Lions like to be treated like the king (or queen) of the forest, so the more extravagant the plans, the more likely you'll be to capture -- and keep -- this sign's heart. Schedule a weekend getaway to a romantic bed and breakfast with all the amenities -- breakfast in bed, a hot tub, and a fireplace. You'll need to eat at some point, so make sure you take them to the best, hippest restaurant in town for dinner.
Health-conscious and eco-friendly Virgos love farms, so a day of apple or pumpkin picking would give them the opportunity to get their hands dirty and become one with nature. Afterward, make an apple pie or pumpkin soup together, or let your Type-A personality date put their feet up and relax -- something they rarely do normally -- while you do all the work.
Sophisticated Libras like the finer things in life, so take this refined sign for a vineyard tour. If you're not well-versed in wine, you might want to pick up a copy of Wine-Tasting for Dummies first. The more "hint of pepper" and "floral notes" you can dish out, the better. And make sure you dress to impress, as Libras are a sign that embodies all things stylish.
This sign loves mysteries and puzzles, so a trek through a corn maze would appeal to their inner investigator. Just make sure you have a post-maze activity lined up, as this sign will find their way out faster than any other. A drive to the area's most notorious haunted houses would fit the bill, but establish some ground rules ahead of time -- Scorpios aren't above breaking and entering to pursue a ghost.
Sagittarians are the adventurers of the zodiac, so a challenging hike to a peak they've never visited would put them in the mood for love. Just make sure you can keep up with the Archer -- if you want to accompany them on their journeys, you have to prove you're worthy. This sign has no qualms about traveling alone, so prove that you're an able fellow wanderer.
Goats love to feel like they're always accomplishing something, so to win this sign's heart, plan a day of raking leaves. But beware going in that they won't like the part where you jump in the pile at the end and ruin all their hard work. It's your job to relax them with conversation -- when they finally do ease up enough to make the leap, they'll love the feeling of release. Just make sure to rake up the mess afterward.
When planning a date with an Aquarius, the quirkier, the better. They like to travel in packs, so a group tour like a ghost walk would keep their attention and appeal to their interest in the supernatural. They also spend a lot of time on humanitarian causes, so cleaning up a local park for the winter would give them a sense of purpose. Plus, they'd be impressed that you even suggested it.
The most romantic sign of the zodiac, the Fish likes to connect on a spiritual level as well as on the emotional and physical plane. Take them to a weekend camping retreat that includes yoga, meditation, or reflection. You'll get an opportunity to enjoy the dazzling fall landscape together as well as the chance to relate to each other in a deeper, more meaningful way.
