You don't need to bust your wallet or take a week's leave for a hot, romantic get-together. With a little planning, there's no shortage of fun plans for you and your guy. May we suggest these easy, romantic and fun date ideas!
Celebrate your love with food. Reconnect with these dining ideas.
- Breakfast together. Make breakfast dates whenever possible. Even if things tend to get a tad rushed in the morning, try having a coffee together at the nearby deli or coffee shop at least once a week. Connecting over your morning brew just before you head to work can be a refreshing change in your morning routine.
- Get adventurous with food. You pick the cuisine (French, Thai, buffet); he chooses the area. Then look up the restaurants directory or local food guide and explore a new restaurant together.
- Have a picnic. There's something rustic and idyllic about outdoor picnics that takes your mind off the everyday stress. Bring along a basket of sandwiches, salad, chocolates, crackers and soda -- and don't forget that bottle of champagne! Head out to the beach or park for an evening and just soak in the romantic atmosphere.
- Meet for a midnight supper. Remember the school days when you were dating and curfews somehow made things more thrilling? Now, try going out for supper at a 24-hour food center at the wee hours and relive the rendezvous experience.
