Add a Love Box Home STD Test to Your Autumn Dating List
It’s officially autumn. That means that it’s the perfect time for watching scary movies while you cuddle with your partner. It’s also the season of the Halloween hook-up. Let’s look at some autumn dating ideas to add to your seasonal checklist!
Romance is in the Air
Let’s face it, there’s something about the autumn air that leads to romance. After all, it’s the perfect season for romantic dates. This can include a day out hiking and pumpkin or apple picking. For a nighttime date, try stargazing or sitting by a bonfire.
Even a casual get-to-know-you date is easy when you meet up at a coffee shop for a hot cocoa or pumpkin spice latte. And, if things get steamy, there’s always cuddling by the fireplace. At least then, the bedroom is conveniently nearby!
College Students Return to Campus
College students, you’re finally back at school! There’s never an easier time to meet people than when you’re in college. So, football games, parties, and double-dates are likely in your near future.
Halloween is the perfect opportunity to hold hands in a haunted house or watch scary movies on the couch. Plus, even as adults, Halloween costume parties can promise tricks and treats.
The Love Box is Your Go-To Home STD Test Kit
These dating list ideas are only improved by adding a home STD test to the mix. Use a Love Box to get tested with your partner! Okay, we get it. Taking a home STD test may seem like the least romantic thing to do with a partner. But, think about it. If your partner is open and honest with you, that’s a pretty sexy thing! Plus, your partner may find you more attractive knowing you make their health a priority and your willingness to be open about your health. After all, it’s far less sexy to get intimate with someone and then find out later that you have a sexually transmitted infection. Luckily, a Love Box lets you test with your partner for full transparency.
What is the Love Box?
The truth is, testing together is an any-season kind of date! But, now that you have all of those autumn date nights lined up, let’s take a look at this convenient home STD test.

The Love Box consists of two Uber Box test kits. The 8-panel kit screens for HIV (I & II), Hepatitis C, Herpes Simplex Type II, Syphilis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Trichomoniasis.
