Dinner for two
Have a candlelight picnic in an unusual location, like your rooftop, a park bench, or overlooking the ocean or lake.Have a candlelight picnic in an unusual location, like your rooftop, a park bench, or overlooking the ocean or lake.
Change of Scenery
Walk or bicycle to an inexpensive ice cream shop or a fancy coffeehouse. Work out together. Take a drive in time for a sunset or moonlit stroll.
How do I love thee?
Go to a park, push one another in the swings and talk. Take turns listing A to Z the reasons you love your mate. Go to the library and check out a poetry book. Or, write a song or poem and share it with the one you love.
Can’t afford Hawaii? Have a living room luau. Often local music stores have island music at rock bottom prices. Toss out some beach towels and get some luau food and wear island outfits. (You can adapt this one for many settings: cabin getaway with hot chocolate and cozy cuddling by the fire, etc.)
Take the everyday and make it special. Play board games together. Classics like Scrabble and Yatzee are good conversation starters. Each of you think of ten questions you’d love to know the answer to.
