  1. According to research from the University of Southampton, couples feel closer when they share nostalgic memories which is exactly why you should head to an old-school arcade for your next date night. Team up against another couple for a few rounds of air hockey or go head-to-head with your partner for classic games like Skee-ball, Pac-Man, or one of those racing simulators. And to take your healthy competition to the next level, make a bet, like say, whoever gets the most tickets doesn’t have to cook for the next week.
