Tell us you're tired of virtual dates, without telling us you're tired of going on virtual dates – we'll go first.

Pandemic dating no doubt feels different than it did before Covid-19.

But now that measures have started to ease in Singapore, we're starting to see the rise in the number of couples going out on actual dates.

While you can head to a cafe or to the bar to get some drinks, at times, it just doesn't cut it.

If you and your partner can't seem to decide on a particular place to head to this weekend - because honestly, some of us are pretty darn indecisive - then look no further.

With TikTok's growing presence in our digital age, we've come across a few decent date ideas that you can try with your partner.

Here are some of our top picks.

Whether you're planning a day out with your bestie or your partner, this fun-filled day out to Admiralty Park and the Luge is one for the books.

But even if you're partner isn't available, or you don't have one to begin with, you can still visit this photo studio, but this time with your pet!

Yes, you read that right.

At Photopia, you can also have your own photoshoot with your furrykid too.

Whether it's your cat, your dog or even your little pet rabbit, this studio is a pet-friendly space that lets you capture your special moments with the ones you love.

Overnight cycling

@jxtll

10/10 would recommend just that we only cycled till 10pm+ because we got tired HAHA #sgdateideas #nightcycling

♬ Drake Best I Ever Had - SEB

Let's be real - almost half of the population have picked up cycling as their latest hobby.

If you're around East Coast Park or MBS, then you'd notice a surge in the number of cyclists in the area.

While it may be a cliche date idea, it's definitely an activity that many of us haven't got tired of.

Besides enjoying beautiful scenic views of the city, you're also clocking in your daily cardio goals for the day, so you can get fit and have fun while you're at it.
