If pictures are worth a thousand words, what are videos worth? You and your boyfriend should take a break from snapping selfies and put your phone on video mode. That way, you can tape yourselves doing a few fun activities together. Here are a few video ideas that you and your boyfriend should test out, so you can watch them back when you're old and gray:
1. Challenge Videos
There are dozens of different challenge videos on YouTube. Check them out and then try the ones that you like the best. You can play the seven second challenge, where you ask each other to do silly activities in seven seconds. Or you could play the tin can challenge, where you take turns eating unknown foods out of tin cans and try to guess what you just put in your mouth.
2. Goodnight Videos
You and your boyfriend should swap phones to take videos of yourselves saying goodnight to each other. That way, you'll be able to listen to his voice before you fall asleep, even when you're miles away. You can ask him to sing in the video, tell you a story, or simple say how much he loves you. No matter what he says or does, it's bound to comfort you on lonely nights.
3. Videos for Your Wedding Day
If you plan on spending the rest of your life with your partner, you should create a video that you two can watch on your wedding day. You can state how much you love each other, create a funny skit, or do whatever else you'd like. Just be prepared to show it to all of the guests at your future wedding.
4. Videos of Him Opening Gifts
It doesn't matter if you're celebrating your anniversary or your boyfriend's birthday, because you should break out the video camera. It's always nice to capture a person's reaction while they're opening gifts. That way, you don't have to replay the memory in your head. You can just replay it on your phone.
5. House Tour Videos
When you two move into a house or an apartment together, you should give a tour of the place. You can make a serious video that you can send to your friends and family members, or you can pretend that you're starring on MTV Cribs. Either way, it should be an entertaining activity.
6. Cooking Videos
It's always fun to whip something up with your partner. The next time you're in the kitchen together, you should tape yourselves cooking. You can both make pancakes and see who creates the better design. Or you could turn the video into a fake cooking show and pretend you're famous co-hosts.
7. Music Videos
Have you ever seen YouTube videos of couples lip-syncing to Frozen songs? You can pick your favorite tune and do the same with your partner. If you can never agree on what type of music to listen to, then you can make an exercise video in your living room or create a spoof of a movie trailer instead.
You should record as many videos as you can with your partner, because they'll be fun to look back at in the future. Which one of these videos would you love to make with your partner first?
