4. Rent a cabin in the woods for a weekend getaway;
5. Share a dessert by candlelight;
6. Cook a meal together;
7. Have a leisurely breakfast in bed;
8. Spend the evening at the theatre;
9. Take a drive to "nowhere in particular" and stop whenever inspired to enjoy the scenery; or
10. Park in a secluded spot (be sure to have lots of blankets) and gaze at the stars.
