I believe that every day should be Valentine’s Day in some way. If you don’t show me how much you care on a regular day, don’t bother doing it on February 14. That makes it feel more like an obligation because Valentine’s Day is nothing more than an expensive guilt trip.
Valentine’s Day for me would definitely be out of the norm and cost-effective. A couple ideas would be a picnic in the living room, museum tour, or wine tasting. All are romantic and not the standard overpriced dinner and roses.
It’s the thought that counts and those thoughts don’t have to cost a lot of money either.
Describe your ideal date night.
My ideal date doesn’t involve a particular location. The interaction between the guy I’m dating and myself is more ideal. I would like a lot of hand holding and laughter. Maybe a kiss…or several.
