Non-cheesy date ideas for Valentine’s Day
Great expectations. Every Valentine’s Day starts with them…a guaranteed recipe for disaster. Sometimes planning (or expecting your guy to plan) the perfect date is just too much pressure! But you plan anyway and come up with the typical fancy dinner date. Then suddenly you are mid-date at a cheesy restaurant with a bouquet of roses thinking, “Who are we?!” This year, take the cheese out of the equation and plan something unique and oh-so-you.
The necessary factors for a fun Valentine’s Day date: make it fun, easy, and interactive. Lucky for you, we have put together some fantastic options that will have you eager instead of nervous to plan that date!
Live Music: Find a local pub or bar that has various musicians playing. If you want to splurge, look for a popular concert in your area. Grooving along to the music together will guarantee a good time.
Something Active: Take a long bike ride together, go rock climbing, or take a hike. Your endorphins will spike and you will both be ready for a post-workout workout (if you know what we mean).
Comedy Show: Scope out your nearest comedy club and book a table stat! Nothing says good times like a few cocktails and laughing so hard your stomach hurts.
Be a Tourist: Go to all those must-see spots you always wanted to visit in your city, but never actually did. Whether visiting a museum, a historic landmark, or hot spots around town, any interesting location will spark great conversation.
Learn Something New: Take a cooking class, a beer brewing course, or even a pottery class (Ghost re-enactment anyone?). Putting your focus on the task at hand while sharing a new experience will definitely bring you closer together.
