18 CORONAVIRUS DATE NIGHT ideas during social distancing


In Episode 031 of the Naked Proverbs podcast, Rich and Nik Scott share 18 ways married couples can still have date night in the wake of coronavirus and social distancing.



Nik:

Welcome back to the Naked Proverbs podcast where we unclothe the truth about Black love family and marriage. My name is Nik Scott, one of your hosts and I'm here with my husband,

Rich:

What's going on? It's your boy Rich, and today, we're going to talk about ways you can strengthen your relationship during the Coronavirus.

Nik:

Right at the start of every episode, we always remind our listeners that we are not trained, licensed, or professional therapists or counselors. We've been married for quite a while and we use Naked Proverbs as our platform to share our experience our advice, our stories and our opinions.

Nik:

If you haven't already, make sure that you're following the Naked Proverbs on whatever podcasting platform you listen on. And if you like what you hear, make sure that you take a pause and show us your love and support by giving us a five-star rating on iTunes or wherever you are listening right now.

Rich:

As we do every week, we want to take a moment and say thank you to all of our listeners. And I also want to take a special moment to say thank you to our patrons. You allow us to do what we do.

Rich:

Have y'all seen the show? Love Is Blind?

Nik:

It's on Netflix.

Rich:

So, because of the Coronavirus and the self-imposed locked down that many people in the US are facing and I guess there are a few states now where it is not self-imposed. It's like mandatory but for all the people that are just sitting at home, bingeing on Netflix, if you have not watched Love Is Blind. It is a great opportunity for you to see a really interesting show.

Nik:

One of the first things that I noticed when I watched the show A) was there way more Black women than black men.

Rich:

There was one black man.

Nik:

and B)

Nik:

That the women were older than the men in general. And so those were two things that I noticed right off the bat. I think, overall the show is,

Rich:

is funny.

Nik:

You thought it was funny?

Rich:

I mean, I thought the show honestly was sad.

Nik:

Yeah.

Rich:

Because first of all, you mentioned the men were all younger. I think the majority of these men were in their 20s.

Nik:

Yes, early 20s, like 24 years old.

Rich:

If you haven't seen the show, I don't want to ruin it for you. But basically, quick synopsis is, you meet somebody through a wall, you fall in love, you get married, right? That's kind of the basis of it?

Nik:

It is. But how come you never want to ruin it for people? How can we have a really good discussion about a show or a movie if we can't even talk about the details because it's going to spoil it for people.

Rich:

Well we just want to use people's names.

Nik:

Okay.

Rich:

So that way, you know, nobody know who Mark really is until they see the show.

Nik:

Oh, well, you just said we weren't gonna use people's names.

Rich:

Oh, was that really a person on the show?

Nik:

It was.

Rich:

Well, hey, yo, beep...don't worry about that.

Rich:

Like I said, I thought it was kind of sad because I thought of myself in my 20s. Now granted, I got married at 24. But there is no way that I would have been like, oh my God, my life is over. I need somebody to arrange me with a random person to get married because I just can't do it myself. Like, there's just no way I would have done it.

Nik:

Okay. Let's be clear. You just said these men were young. Yeah. And then you immediately followed up with you got married when you're 24.

Rich:

Okay.

Nik:

So, what makes you any different than those other men?

Rich:

You're missing what I'm saying. What I'm saying is those men went on a game show, whatever you want to call it, to get hooked up with someone because they felt that they couldn't find someone themselves.

Nik:

They wanted to be married.

Rich:

Right. And so, did I. So, you know what I did? I went out there and I found this fine girl. Let me tell you. And I was like, hey girl, and she's like, hey boy. And I was like, hey, what's going on with you? You know what I mean? What's your name is? And she said, she said whatever you want it to be.

Nik:

This ain't about you. We talking about Love Is Blind.

Rich:

And I was. Oh, so anyway, my point is for you to be in your 20s and feel like your only option to find love is to go on some random show. Yeah, you missin life. Get out there and live it and you're gonna find her.

Nik:

I disagree. I disagree because these times are different. We got engaged

Rich:

Yes, the Coronavirus. People are locked down. Times are different.

Nik:

We got engaged, what? It was like 2000 or something like that?

Rich:

Girl, I don't know. It was so long ago.

Nik:

It was a long time ago. So, things were different. Like basically the only way you could meet somebody

Rich:

Men knew how to court.

Nik:

I'm just saying the men on this show

Nik:

You did. I'm saying the men on this show were not losers. Just because they were on the show. If they really wanted to be married and they're in their young 20s. Young 20s? Early 20s, and they can't find somebody, a potential mate.

Rich:

Did I court you?

Rich:

Where are they looking?

Nik:

I don't know a lot of them were talking about these dating apps and stuff

Rich:

Sounds to me like they weren't courting, and they were lacking

Nik:

How else? You don't know how people have to date in 2020.

Rich:

You know how people have the date and 2020? How they choose to date.

Nik:

You're just being very judgmental right now.

Rich:

Well, you know what? I found a beautiful fox at 24 I don't understand why these losers have to go on TV and beyond blind love by the wall. You know, honestly, I mean, what do you want to say about Love Is Blind y'all go watch it? Whoo.

Nik:

It's not blind. First of all.

Rich:

Nobody you know is actually kind of offensive to disabled people that are blind. Because you think none these people are actually blind.

Nik:

Oh, my.

Rich:

What?

Nik:

What are you talking about?

Rich:

Well to say that love is blind just because you put a wall between the two of you. They're really people like Stevie Wonder that can't see.

Nik:

That's, well first of all, you and a whole lot of people say that Stevie Wonder really can see.

Rich:

But that's a whole nother topic for another day. But if y'all didn't know Stevie Wonder can see

Nik:

If you've ever seen him in concert.

Rich:

It's been proven. I've watched him. And I'm not the only, Google it can Stevie Wonder, see, I promise you it's like it's gone viral before?

Nik:

Well, the,

Rich:

I think Tupac. No, I'm lying. It wasn't Tupac. It was a, I'm trying to think it was a Snoop Dogg. I think. One of them recently, somebody recently, so it wasn't Tupac. Somebody recently though was like; I knew that nigga could see. That's what they said.

Nik:

So, Love Is Blind. was not about people being blind. It was about can you fall in love without physically seeing somebody or physically knowing

Rich:

Oh, so this was kind of like, The Voice.

Nik:

Something like that. I guess you can kind of

Rich:

except for nobody was singing?

Nik:

Yeah. Yeah. So, am I going to fall in love with you as a person and not because of what you look like?

Rich:

Because of my personality.

Nik:

Exactly

Rich:

Well I'ma be honest, my looks are important.

Nik:

Why do you keep talking about you?

Rich:

Have you looked at me?

Nik:

I look at you everyday baby.

Rich:

What do you do?

Nik:

Yes, I'm very thankful and I'm blessed.

Rich:

Okay.

Nik:

Somehow you keep turning the conversation

Rich:

I mean yesterday was my Kappaversary.

Nik:

Happy Kappaversary.

Rich:

Yeah 16 years in the bond Y'all, yo yo. So, because of that, I think we should just make this whole podcast about me.

Nik:

Well, why don't we let's just scrap everything that we were going to talk about what Coronavirus and just talk about you and how pretty you are. And how fine you are.

Rich:

This is an amazing show.

Nik:

And how sexy you are.

Rich:

Everybody tune in, turn it up. Turn it up. Listen, listen to what she's saying.

Nik:

Yeah, let's talk. Let's talk about that for 30 minutes.

Rich:

Hey, don't tune out now.

Nik:

They done already tuned out.

Rich:

Okay, for real, though. So, are we gonna talk any more about Love Is Blind?

Nik:

No, I don't have any, I mean,

Rich:

Check it out for real. I mean, I think it's a great show.

Nik:

It's worth the watch.

Rich:

Cuz we totally been watched binge watched it.

Nik:

Yeah, we did. In a day.

Nik:

yeah. So, if you want to watch it, watch it

Rich:

Yeah,

Rich:

and really, to be honest, I just wanted to know who I had picked, who was actually gonna get married and who wasn't. So

Nik:

did you even watch all the way through that?

Rich:

I did.

Nik:

Oh, you didn't watch the reunion?

Rich:

No, I didn't watch reunion because unfortunately someone started it and didn't really know what was going on.

Nik:

Oh, well,

Rich:

because they didn't realize how much life should be about me.

Nik:

Que sera, sera.

Rich:

Right now, with the corona virus, corvid 19

Nik:

It's COVID

Rich:

CORVID it's a R in there. There's no ARRA?

Nik:

No ARRA it's C-O-V-I-D.

Rich:

So, COVID, COVID COVID

Nik:

COVID

Rich:

COVID. It depends on where you're at. People in China probably don't call it COVID.

Nik:

We're not gonna even go there. Let's note even go there.

Rich:

What? My president did.

Nik:

Yo, pres. Yeah, you're president. Let's be clear. Let's be clear

Rich:

I'm talking about President Obama.

Nik:

President Obama has not said a word about

Rich:

President Obama. He said nothing since he left the White House.

Nik:

That's because he's on an island somewhere with his family like good luck to y'all fools in America.

Rich:

President Obama been chillin with his tan suit on somewhere. But uh, anyway, with co, co COVID-19

Nik:

Just call it Coronavirus.

Rich:

I just don't like calling it Coronavirus because I think that it causes people to think you're talking about the corona beer.

Nik:

Nobody thinks that.

Rich:

Oh, a lot of people did in the beginning there were people that were actually asking do you get this from drinking the beer?

Nik:

No, they did not.

Rich:

Corona took a hit. Google it. Corona stock took a hit initially because people really thought it was related to their beer.

Nik:

People are.

Rich:

Don't say that. That's rude.

Nik:

Interesting.

Rich:

So, with the virus going on, you know, there is this panic. There's a lack of toilet paper. There's all this uncertainty. But what we want to do is bring you a few different ideas that can help you spice up your marriage.

Nik:

Because a whole lot of babies gonna be being made during this time.

Rich:

Well, look, I told you earlier that I was joking. Let me find my phone. I'm gonna read exactly what this, because she went viral and I want to make sure her name is spoken.

Nik:

You want to get it right.

Rich:

I don't want to mess her up. Tina tax time turner on Facebook. made this post on yesterday at 2:32pm. Bring the NBA back I'm over here getting

Nik:

FUCKed

Rich:

six times a day.

Nik:

Who? Her coochie gotta be raw and sore.

Rich:

Well, and then somebody was like, girl, that's all. I gotta suck this here dick every two hours. So, for me, I'm trying to give you some better options.

Nik:

Naw. First of all, no. Since you wanted to bring that up, people do the most for social media. And it's sad and sickening. I'm not saying that she didn't post it. I'm saying there's no way that her and her husband are having sex six times a day, and there's no way

Rich:

well, they ain't got no kids for sure.

Nik:

Clearly.

Rich:

Because it's impossible to have sex six times a day if you have children,

Nik:

of any age,

Rich:

I don't care what age they are. They want to be around you at some point.

Nik:

They're cock blockers.

Rich:

And let's be real. If you're having sex six times a day, your house stinks.

Nik:

And your coochie's sore.

Rich:

I don't know if they were having sex six times a day, but that's what he said.

Nik:

We have better ideas than that.

Rich:

All right. Let's go ahead and just jump into these since we've already you know, popped it open.

Rich:

One thing that couples can always find time to do and honestly some of these can be family oriented if you choose to make them and this is one of those, you can exercise together. You know if you had a regular exercise routine that you were doing prior to the gyms being shut down and all these things, you really don't want to get out of those habits because they're good healthy habits. And exercising together is a great way to build your relationship.

Nik:

And to connect right?

Rich:

Definitely

Nik:

And I do agree that during this whole COVID-19 quarantine one of my concerns, let's bring it to me now, one of my concerns has been how many pounds am I gonna gain send up in here eaten

Rich:

cookies

Nik:

drinking

Rich:

pop

Nik:

Exactly. I don't drink pop though.

Rich:

Do we even have pop?

Nik:

No, y'all drink it all.

Rich:

Cuz we had like three from a year ago.

Nik:

No, it was from Super Bowl.

Rich:

Oh, if you didn't know the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl this year.

Nik:

The next way that you and your spouse can connect during this COVID-19 quarantine is to have a sexy photo shoot. And you don't have to have a fancy camera to do it.

Rich:

Yeah, you can have one of them old Kodak windy ones.

Nik:

That's not what I meant. I was actually going to suggest you can use your smartphone or your iPhone. And these pictures. You can use them however you want and sexy is relative, right? It doesn't have to be a nude photo shoot. That's not what I said. I said sexy.

Rich:

Nude is sexy to me.

Rich:

Let's go away from being nude. Because this one you'd probably get in trouble. You can go take a walk through the neighborhood, to the mailbox. If you're here in Colorado, there's snow on the ground. So, that may not be the best idea, unless you dress really warm. But if you're in a warm area, go take a walk together, hold hands talk. Because reality is you know this whole social distancing thing, if your spouse has cor, Coronavirus, you got Coronavirus. So, at no point trying to distance yourself from them.

Nik:

Do your spouse's hair, wash your spouse's hair. If your spouse has locs, you can do their locs. If their hair is natural, you can do their wash n go. There's nothing more sensual to me then when your spouse plays in your hair or washes your hair or touches your hair or runs their hands through your hair, so, yeah, I think a way to connect would be to play in your spouse's hair.

Rich:

And that could lead to the next thing. Break out some cards and play a little strip poker. Now, if your spouse does not know how to play, don't take advantage of them, teach them how to play. Remember, this is about bonding and having fun. It's not about competition and winning. It's about having fun together and really coming together.

Nik:

Does it have to be poker? Can it be like strip Phase 10 or strip Scrabble?

Rich:

I mean, it could be any of those games but I'm not really great speller. So, I'd rather not play strip Scrabble because I'd be sitting there butt naked trying to figure out some words.

Nik:

Well, I don't play games at all. So, this, that's not a good idea for us.

Rich:

Oh, well, that sucks.

Nik:

Along the same lines of playing in your spouse's hair, is feeding your spouse how sexy could that be?

Rich:

What you're gonna feed me?

Nik:

What you want to eat?

Rich:

Now, girl we... See how you are? We own this national podcast

Nik:

International,

Rich:

international, national I don't know. And you want me to just talk dirty to you? I will because you know the wood is good.

Rich:

Another option is to paint your spouse's nails. Now. This is really your wife, I would hope. But now salons are closed just like the barber shop and everything else. And this is a great opportunity for you to rub her feet and you know, get that favorite color that you like so much and put it on our toes and hold her hand and then slowly put it on her fingers, suck on her toe a little bit. I don't know.

Nik:

I heard that there are lots of erotic spots on feet. So, maybe you can even take it up a level and, and give each other foot massages

Rich:

Now you don't even like feet.

Nik:

I don't.

Rich:

But you're gonna rub my feet?

Nik:

I told you I would.

Rich:

Because you like me.

Nik:

I do. I love you.

Nik:

The next tip that we have is to park and ride.

Rich:

Ooh,

Nik:

Exactly.

Rich:

I like the way this is sounding right now.

Nik:

And I meant it exactly the way that you took it.

Rich:

You trying to get somebody a ticket.

Nik:

I'm not saying go park somewhere in a public well-lit area. You can go park in a very remote place. There's places here, out somewhere in Denver where you can watch the planes coming and landing. Like that's a great place to go park

Rich:

She said coming and landing.

Nik:

Oh, my gosh.

Rich:

What? I just said what you said.

Nik:

Park and ride.

Rich:

Yeah, park and ride.

Rich:

Have a picnic. You know, you can have one outside. You can have one indoors. If the weather doesn't permit you to be outside, you can get in the car and go to an isolated place and just have a picnic together. So, pick out some of your favorite items. And maybe you can partner this with feed each other, right? And get you some. Let's see some string cheese and whipped cream. Whatever, whatever. Whatever floats your boat.

Nik:

If you're lactose intolerant don't go for the cheese or the whipped cream. I'm just saying

Rich:

Yeah, that's probably true. Does that might make fun go away.

Nik:

Yeah, that's a bad combination.

Rich:

Okay,

Nik:

You can even have a picnic in your living room.

Rich:

You know, when you got your braces off. We had a picnic in the living room.

Rich:

And I had every kind of candy that you couldn't eat while you had your braces on.

Nik:

We did.

Nik:

You did and it was fun. Yeah, it was good time. So, you don't have to go out, you do a living room picnic, a bedroom picnic.

Rich:

And it doesn't have to be like a sandwich and chips and a drink. Like on a, legit we had a candy picnic, it could be anything that the two of you would enjoy.

Nik:

Exactly.

Nik:

So, if you're like us, you and your spouse are spending quite a bit of time in separate rooms of the house right now, for whatever reason. The next idea that I have is for you to sext each other while you're in separate rooms.

Rich:

So, those dirty pictures you took earlier. Now you can send it to your spouse.

Nik:

That's right.

Rich:

You could say some nasty stuff that maybe you wouldn't say face to face.

Nik:

Mm hmm.

Rich:

Cuz sometimes people are low, you know, too shy.

Nik:

I'm shy.

Rich:

Well, sex me girl, cuz I'm not shy.

Nik:

You're not.

Rich:

I'm not I will show you right now.

Rich:

Cook a meal together. You know, unfortunately in my house, I have to be honest, I don't do a lot of cooking. And it's because I'm really not that great. But this is a great opportunity for me to get in there with my spouse. And to get to get the kitchen hot.

Nik:

Make it hot.

Nik:

One thing that I like to do by myself is have a little party. So, I'll turn on some of my favorite songs and I will dance by myself. And my kids look at me crazy. My husband, he comes downstairs looks and goes right back upstairs

Rich:

I'm used to her to being crazy.

Nik:

But now that we're all stuck in the house together, it's not really fair for me to just tie up whatever digital device I'm listening to my favorite music on. I can turn on some slow jams. And me and my husband, we can slow dance together and have our own little couples party

Rich:

I like that.

Nik:

Yeah.

Rich:

Let's do that.

Rich:

I never truly played this game to its fullest as a young person. But now that I'm grown, I'm like, man, I need to go ahead and play this. And who better to play with the my wife? Play a little game of hide and go get it. Now it's kind of like hide and go seek, except for when you find him, you find him.

Nik:

My next tip, we're going to continue with the theme of being naked and nasty and sexy. And that is to give each other lap dances or to strip for each other.

Rich:

I'm going to continue my theme of not being so sexual and sensual. And you all can have a happy hour together. You know, we did this recent, actually did this last year when the kids were visiting my sister. And then we've done it recently, last few weeks, but you know, find some cool drinks that you want to make. And if you don't drink alcohol, find some nonalcoholic, just you know, drinks that you want to make. It doesn't always have to be something simple and boring. Make some drinks and make some appetizers and just enjoy each other's company. You know, have some conversation, laugh a little bit and eat and drink and be merry. What else you got someone's bought some sex.

Nik:

No actually. I mean, it could probably lead to sex but

Rich:

Okay. Okay, what can't lead to sex?

Nik:

So, in my professional career, I've had the opportunity to take a lot of personality assessments. And I know a lot of people do these things, but I don't think you have actually.

Rich:

Done what?

Nik:

Have taken a personality assessment like Myers Briggs.

Rich:

Yes.

Rich:

So, what are your letters?

Nik:

What are your letters? I don't know your letters.

Rich:

I'm not gonna tell all these people my letters. They don't need to know my letters.

Nik:

I'll tell you mine if you tell me yours.

Rich:

See, that's what I'm talking about tell. No. Move on.

Nik:

But my point is, I think it's a great way for spouses to get to know each other by knowing what their Myers Briggs personality test is. And what I'll do is I'll post a link to a free one on our Patreon website so that if you're a patron, you can go ahead and take this free assessment with your spouse and you can uncover so many great things about each other and even,

Rich:

You might find out that you just two totally incompatible people.

Nik:

See that is just that opposite of what this podcast is. I told y'all he was on one today.

Rich:

I'm just saying. I mean, you telling people that are locked up in a house together for who knows how long hey, take this personality test and see if you really like each other.

Nik:

That's not what I said. I said, you will find out things about your spouse that you didn't know. I say it's another way to connect. Or another way that you can do is to take the test for each other and see if the personality assessment comes out the same. Because a lot of times we take these tests by ourselves, right we're answering the questions about ourselves. So, that could be kind of biased, whereas if you took it from me, you're like, oh, hell yes. She is just like that or naw that's not how she is. Don't be dogging out my idea.

Rich:

I wasn't dogging out your idea, I'm just trying to keep people from

Nik:

You won't even let me know what your letters are.

Rich:

I don't want y'all arguing and end up in no situation, because you was listening to Naked Proverbs and decided to take a personality test while you locked up in the house together.

Rich:

Another one that I have is, and I know a lot of people already doing this probably. You're just sitting in binge watching Netflix, but make a all-out movie, right? I mean, pick that movie. That's your favorite movie that just makes you laugh, that maybe she first movie you ever watched together, pop some popcorn, kick your feet up, you know, make sure the lights are turned down, like making that real movie theater, atmosphere and experience. Not just each of y'all sitting on your own couch, watching something that one person really wants to watch and the other person's just there because it's like, well, this is what I have to do. But really make it something that's fun for both of you.

Nik:

It can be a theme, right? I remember one time we watched was it the Matrix. Was there a bunch of those?

Rich:

We have. And I'm pretty sure you didn't wat the Matrix.

Nik:

It wasn't the Matrix it was the Bourne.

Rich:

Yeah.

Nik:

It was Bourne.

Rich:

Yes.

Nik:

I hadn't seen Bourne and there was a new one coming out and he was all excited about and I'm like, what the heck is the deal with Bourne. And so, we took a day or however long it was and just sat and watched all of the Jason Bourne movies. So, you can pick a theme it can be the most popular Black movies or Eddie Murphy movies or whatever you want it to be.

Rich:

Yeah.

Nik:

My very last tip, this is the best one.

Nik:

Smack.

Nik:

No, that's not my tip.

Rich:

That

Rich:

Ass

Nik:

That's not my tip.

Nik:

My tip is to binge listen to the Naked Proverbs podcast

Rich:

Ah, yeah that should be fun.

Nik:

Yes, this should be very fun.

Rich:

Well, I don't have any more tips. I mean, I do but that's the best tip of them all.

Nik:

They're all the best tips.

Rich:

I mean, they're all well written, well thought out. Great ideas. But that one to me is the icing on the cake. And this is why I say that. Because if you binge listen to the Naked Proverbs, you're going to have some helpful tips in there. You're going to have some fun advice in there. And you may have missed an episode, right? Because while we're saying all these fun things to do, there are some spouses that are locked down together right now they may not like each other. Listening to Naked Proverbs may change that. There are some spouses that are going to get tired of each other because like you said in the beginning, I'm on one, right? So, sometimes it can be too much for you. So, listening to the Naked Proverbs may be an opportunity for you to strengthen and grow your marriage. So, that's why I say there's really no need to say any other ones because I think that's a great one.

Nik:

Thank you so much for tuning in to this week's episode of the Naked Proverbs podcast. We want you to truly have a happy marriage. We want you to continue to thrive in your marriages and indulge in your spouses on a regular basis, especially during this quarantine period. Don't forget to follow the Naked Proverbs on whatever podcasting platform you listen on. And we will talk to y'all in the next one. Be safe, y'all.

Rich:

Wait a minute. You forgot to tell them about how they can listen to us on a different platform tomorrow.

Nik:

Oh yeah. So, we are going to be guest hosts, guests, no we're going to be guests.

Rich:

Yes,
