Valentine’s day can be stressful for everyone, from finding the right gift to planning the perfect date. I’ve listed a few ideas of things to do that’s not always a “movie & dinner” kind of date.
1. Rock Climbing
It takes a lot of trust to go rock climbing with a partner. You have to trust your partner that’s belaying you since your life is literally relying on that person and a rope. If it’s the first time for both of you, it’s great to learn something new together and maybe it’ll be your new hobby to do with that person.
2. Going to a Science Museum
Science museums can be fun even if you’re not into science! The one that I’ve been to is the Exploratorium in San Francisco. It has a lot of interactive games that requires a partner. You’ll have a lot of fun figuring things out together, plus dudes are totally into it as well!
Like to stay in and avoid the crowd? Baking together can be intimate and rewarding for both of you. Enjoy your goodies with a cup of coffee or tea and a movie. Sounds like a good day to me!
Hiking is a great breather away from the crowd and it’s a good escape for the two of you. No one likes to look sweaty in front of a person they like, but he has to be able to see you from every angle, all dolled up or your au naturale look. If he can’t accept it, lose him!
5. Water sports
Kayaking or paddle boarding is a great activity to do that you may not always have a chance to do regularly. It’s a great way to keep your relationship fresh and lively!
6. Dessert Bars
I’m a sucker for good desserts. There are plenty of restaurants that specialize in desserts to pair with champagne or wine. It’s the perfect ending to your romantic day. In other words, you can’t have a three course meal without desserts right?
However you decide to spend your day, don’t forget that it’s for the both of you. It’s a chance to reconnect, meet someone new, or a day for you and your bestie. Don’t wait for Valentine’s Day to experience something new, discover and learn something new everyday.
