Not into price fixed meals , but still want to celebrate with your Bae this Valentine’s? Read on for fun and quirky ideas that won’t make your single friends roll their eyes with disgust:
Enter into a fierce game or competition
Do you and your partner excel at beer pong? Have you mastered tennis or dominate at trivia? Teaming up with your main squeeze can be a great way to feel connected without all of that lame lovey-dovey stuff. Plus, just think about how revved up you’ll be when you watch your date sink that 8-ball for the win. There’s no better way to get the juices flowing. So get out there, talk some smack, and have some good old-fashioned competitive fun.
Getting rugged and dirty is not only a good luck for a man, but most guys are impressed when women can do it too. That’s why heading to the outdoors is a great way for you and your partner to kiss your stress and responsibilities (not to mention those cutsie hearts) goodbye and take in some much-needed fresh air. And sure, you might end up accidentally snuggling up under the stars, but hey, at least this way no one will have to watch your romantic display.
Go see a comedy show
Ditch the sappy love poem and get ready to laugh. Most likely you’ll hear a lot of jokes about the disadvantages about what it’s like being in a relationship and odds are a lot of what the comedian says will hit a little close to home at times, but as they say, laughter is the best medicine. So have a drink and make fun of all the stereotypically annoying things your partner does on a daily basis. It may be your only chance.
Hit the gun range
This option is for those of you who are really not into the candy and cupid thing. Especially if you’ve never gone before, firing those first few shots can be unbelievably exhilarating. It’s sexy, it’s unconventional, it’s the perfect way to tell your date, “this is just like any other day- except I’m packing!”
What’s the opposite of romance, flowers, and chocolates? That’s right, it’s blood curdling fear, gore, and monsters. This Valentine’s Day, instead of renting the Notebook for the thirteenth time try watching a horror film or, better yet, look up your neighborhood’s closest haunted spot and go on a spooky adventure. And don’t forget to scare your date repeatedly throughout the night. Trust me, it’s great fun
Engage in a sex marathon
For some people, Valentine’s day is all about the end of the night anyway so why not skip all of the antics and see if you and your partner can break your previous record? Got a kinky idea you’ve always wanted to try? This is the day to do it…….
