Yes, that’s right, the Writer Wednesday gang is doing it up Valentine’s Day style this year and we’re here to help you out with some romantic date ideas.
This month I’m subscribing to the “a picture is worth a thousand words” idea. Thinking that a pic will get the point across faster. And with the clock ticking ever closer to V-Day on Sunday, you might need to get crackin’!
And of course you’ll want to check out the other Writer Wednesday author sites to see what they’ve cooked up for you.
Today, you’ll get a little smorgasbord of ideas, since there’s a smorgasbord of dates that I’d find romantic.
Of course, there’s the age old– sunset beach locale.
In my book, you can never go wrong with this place.
Whether it’s a blanket or a lounger with some snacks and a bottle of wine to share
Or if you take it a little further with chairs, a table and a meal
Or you go all out at a fancy restaurant with a killer ocean view
it’s a great way to WOW a girl who loves the sound of ocean waves lapping the shore, the smell of salt and sea in the air, and the relaxing sensation of her toes in the sand!
If she’s a dance lover, like me, maybe a night out at a club for a little salsa, merengue or bachata?
Maybe a movie night– in or out. I’m always up for a blanket, a picnic and great flick on a big screen in the park.
Or how about Shakespeare in the Park? ~~Sigh~~
For this English-major, book-lovin’ girl, the pic below is definitely
the start of romantic evening if I’ve ever seen one.
But if you know, or if you’ve checked out my website, you’ll know that one of my favorite ways to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon is sitting in the bleacher seats at Wrigley Field, cheering on my beloved Cubbies.
The warm sun shining on my face, a cool drink in one hand, the crack of the bat when a Cubbie gets a hit…
and a special someone at my side cheering with me .
But you know what?
After a busy week with a long To Do list, a quiet walk in the park just might do the trick.
A stop along the way, holding hands as we relax side by side on a bench.
No specific destination, no particular time to be somewhere other than right where we are, together.
My best advice if you’re trying to come up with a romantic date idea for someone special is to take a few moments to think about that person. What she (or he) likes to do, hasn’t had time to do, or what brings a smile to her/his face.
It doesn’t necessarily have to be a grand gesture– well, at least not for me.
I’d love to hear what your idea of a romantic date might be. Hope you have some time to share!
