It’s true when they say monsoon brings out the most passionate traits even in a cynic. However romancing in the rains can be more than just cuddling under the blanket all day (although that’s not entirely a bad idea). We’ve compiled a list of things you can do with your guy when the skies get grey and the trees look greener.
1. Head for long drives
Absolutely cliché but it’s oh-so-worth-getting out to do this. Hop into your car (bike’s even better) and get soaked as you head out of the city. Run in the rain (total Bollywood style) and then head to a cozy tea stall for some chai. Monsoon is incomplete without this act of nonsense.
2. Jump in the pool
As mad as it sounds, just take a dip in a pool or head to a water resort with your beau and you’ll know what we are talking about. Sensuous and absolutely dreamy!
3. Watch a movie marathon
Don’t want to head out? Make your own lounge with pillows, dim lights, and LOTS of popcorn!
4. Head to a café
Go to a café all drenched and sip on cold (yes, cold) coffee as you watch the world go by. Play a game of scrabble or monopoly and make a steamy deal for the winner.
You can shop in peace as you buy each other some cute rain gear. Another pair of sandals… Why not?
6. Walk in the rain
Head to a park or go by the sea or lake. Chances are, there will be fewer people and the view would be totally breathtaking for sure. Share an umbrella and get cosy, make paper boats in puddles and eat roasted bhuttas or a plate of piping hot pakoras.
7. Make an aromatic candle light dinner
Just cooking together is so romantic anyway! Treat each other to some beautiful aromas of lemongrass and lavender for a heady evening of love potions - and food portions.
8. Get a bonfire crackling
If you are the old school romantic kind, then try this. Get your own small bonfire going in your balcony or any other suitable place available (under a shaded area, of course) and sit together with a large mug of hot chocolate each! Perfect, isn’t it?
