Indulge in a spa day. Spas are excellent sources of renewal, relaxation and togetherness—and no one has to say a word! Book a couples massage at a local salon or spa, or (if your man hopped on the metrosexual bandwagon a few years back) try side-by-side manicure/pedicure treatments. If you lack the bucks for the professional touch, set up a spa day at home: Pick up a sexy-smelling lotion or oil and read up on basic massage techniques to give each other almost-expert full-body massages by candlelight.

Act like teenagers. When all else fails, go back to the basics (we're talking way back): Think of your favorite Friday night activity as a teenager and recreate it (the truly daring can dress the part). Or: go roller skating or ice skating and hold hands during the cheesy love songs; hang out cruising the mall; visit an amusement park; sit on Santa's lap. When you've tried the typical, the exotic and the downright inane, getting a hit of nostalgia will provide a welcome chance to relax, laugh, be yourselves and enjoy each other's company—and isn't that what dating is all about?
