Dinner Around Town
Sometimes the way into someone’s heart is by revamping something they know and love. For many couples new and old out there, hitting the town for dinner and drinks is the perfect way to spend an evening. After dating for a while though, the routine can get a little stale. If you’re feeling adventurous, try grabbing cocktails at one place, appetizers at another and dinner somewhere else. Why sit at the same, tired, old spot when you can hit all of your favorites in one epic night? It may require a little more running around, but it will definitely garner some swoon points.
• Revamping an old idea is a great way into someone’s heart.
• Get drinks somewhere, appetizers at another place and dinner somewhere else.

Can’t think of something to do? Pick up a newspaper, close your eyes, run your finger down the page and whatever you stop on is what you’re doing that night! Make sure it’s a band that neither of you have heard of to get the most out of the experience. This could either be the best night of your life, or the absolute worst, but that’s the point. If the two of you end up loving the group then more power to you, but if it turns out to be horrible, then you at least have a funny story to tell the kids someday.
• Pick up a newspaper, close your eyes, point at something and that’s what you’re doing.
• Understand that this could be the best, or worst, night of your dating life.
• Either way, you will have a story to tell and some laughs to share.
Cuddling up with your beau and watching a movie is a splendid way to spend a Friday or Saturday night.

Even if you’re not much of a comedian, this will certainly have you both laughing out loud. Not only does it combine the comfort of watching a movie together, it also gives you both a chance to be a little creative and put an edgy spin on something you have done many, many times throughout your dating life.
• Rent one of your favorite movies, put it on mute and make up your own dialogue.
