It’s that time again, Valentine’s Day… ugh! Anyone else with me? It feels like no matter what it is never good enough on this day. I feel as if Valentine’s Day does more harm than good but from one romantic to another here are my romantic date ideas. Whether you prefer to avoid the lines and save some cash or not I have ideas for both.
Do not be that boring cookie cutter person who brings roses and plans a reservation for two (unless that’s what they asked for or really enjoy). Try being different, think a little out of the Hallmark holiday. Even swinging by Starbucks or Jamba Juice to pick up their drink of choice on a random day shows love. Show interest in their hobby: buy tickets to a show (not a movie), dart painting, rock climbing, race car driving, archery, horseback riding, dancing, music or have a photoshoot.
Honestly February is a bitter sweet month filled of perfection expectations. It is easy to forget that showing love is not just permitted to one day of the year, Valentine’s day. Instead of stressing about one upping each other on what your sweetheart got you compared to your friends, take a step back. Remember all the things they do for you the other 364 days of the year. Have you been showing love too? This “holiday” should be used as an evaluation to check in on how you personally are making others feel special.
