Getting ready for (virtual) date night
06 May 2020

With measures in place to help control the spread of Covid-19, we’re not to physically interact with others who are not in the same household as us. As a result, couples who are no longer staying under the same roof are now going through ‘long-distance relationships’. If you and your partner are currently in a 'LDR' now, you know that it takes extra effort to keep your connection going.

We've all heard that date nights are important to keep a relationship strong. However, given the current situation, we've to rethink how we do date nights - we can't head out to a fancy restaurant, watch a movie, or go to the beach for a nice walk. But, just because you can’t meet each other, doesn’t mean you have to stop romancing each other. Take your partner out on an online date, dress-up at home, order food for each other, maybe even light a candle and have a video call. Stay connected, no matter how far apart you may be.

If you had travel plans together, why not visit the countries you were planning to visit over the computer. Or if you'd prefer to have a meal together, pick their dinner and surprise them with a food delivery! Maybe even have a date where you cook together virtually, so that you can enjoy the same food while apart. The list of ideas is endless, so even while you're away from each other, you can still continue to shower them with love and affection. Plus, it's a fun and great way to help relax. And while you may be talking every day, we'd do recommend having one extra special date night where you pull out all the stops, just like how you usually would to remind them of how much you love them!

Remember to put in the effort to let this date night stand out from your usual day to day catch-ups. We've rounded up a list of products that will help you achieve a flawless look for this special virtual date night (plus it's an excuse to put on make-up and wear something other than pyjamas)! When you pay with Atome, you get to split the bill into three easy 0% interest instalments. It's going to be a perfect date for you and bae.

Spongelle: Coconut Verbena Boxed Flower

Plus it sets the tone for your evening knowing that you put in that extra effort. Freshen up with Spongelle’s body wash infused buffer that cleanses, exfoliates, massages and nourish your skin from neck to toe. Even through the screen, your partner will be able to tell how soft and glowing your skin looks.

Ecaldo: Snail lifting eye patch

It's only normal if your screen time has gone up since the start of Circuit Breaker. The light emitted from these screens are glaring and can strain our eyes over long period of time. Brighten and lift your eyes with Eclado’s Snail Lifting Eye Patch that helps to moisturise the eyes and tackle puffiness and fine lines. Give your under-eye some TLC and look instantly refreshed for your date.

For Beaut: Pure Me Detangling & Oil Removal Hair Brush

Yumigifts: Big Big Love

Last but not least, surprise your partner with a bouquet of paper roses from Yumi Gifts! This thoughtful gift from the heart is sure to bring a smile to their face and remind them of your love and appreciation. Even though we may be far apart from the people that we love, it doesn’t mean that they’re out of mind. Plus, these are made with paper, so you don't have to worry about them wilting. Talk about everlasting love right?

It's a tough period now, and the uncertainity of the situation can amplify stress and anxiousness. Having a date as per usual (even virtually) can help create a sense of normalness, and you can escape reality and take your mind off things. Shower your loved ones with appreciation and affection, and remind them that you're in this together. This period will help strengthen your love for each other and establish stronger emotional ties.

Remember to pay with Atome to help manage your payments into three interest-free instalments. If you're new to Atome and are curious about Atome's 'buy now, pay later', it essentially helps you to split bills into three monthly repayments, which are all at 0% interest. There are no hidden fees, or conditions, you only have to pay what you purchase. So you get to enjoy the things you love now, and pay later.
