Romantic Valentine's Day Date Ideas for Young & Old Couples
Here are a couple great Valentine's Day date ideas:
A Fancy Dinner - There's a reason that a dinner out is a popular Valentine's Day date idea. It gives a couple a chance to talk, to connect and get to know each other. This Valentine's Day, why not take it a step further and plan a gourmet meal at a fancy restaurant. Find one that has a Michelin star or has a great review in the Forbes guide. Don't worry if you don't know much about what to order when it comes to food or wines because many of the top restaurants offer a tasting menu which is several of its courses (in small portions of course). They will also have an option with wine pairings and you will be served a glass of whichever wine their sommelier has chosen for each course. It's a great way to learn about wines and to impress your date. It's also the perfect setting for a romantic proposal if you're planning to pop the question. If she says “yes,” then you'll have a place you can make your default celebration restaurant for all those special occasions in the future.
Ice Skating - If fancy dining is not your thing or the relationship is very new and you don't want to send the wrong message, then how about a fun date instead? Ice skating is a great way to get close! It's an excellent excuse to cling to each other and is bound to be a lot of laughs. You can have a hot chocolate together and take a romantic stroll through the city. If you really want to add a little romance, take a bottle of bubbly with you and some glasses and find a quiet spot where you can watch the ice skaters and just enjoy each other's company.
Cooking Class - Taking a cooking class together can be a lot of fun, especially if you get to sit down afterwards and eat the meal you've prepared. It's a great ice breaker for anyone who might be a little shy. It sure beats the nerves of cooking a meal at home for the first time for your new flame!
Couples Massage - If you've been together long enough to be comfortable in each other's company whatever the situation, then (and only then) is a couples massage and spa day a great Valentine's Day date idea. And don't worry if a massage is not your thing, it's not essential that you both have the same treatment – one of you could have a facial and the other could have a massage.
