Last Minute Dates
(for Ages 16-18)
If the weather is unpleasant, set up a picnic in the living room. Plan an elegant meal, complete with good plates, fine linens, silverware, and a nice blanket. Add candles and music to enhance the mood. Don't be afraid to try a new recipe.
Send flowers. Try adding a note or a poem. For greater impact, find a way to secretly add flowers to the vase every day, and include a secret note each time.
First plan a scavenger hunt. Write clues on note cards telling him/her where to go. Place the clues in the places around the community. Have a friend or relative give him/her the first clue. The final clue leads your date to a restaurant (be waiting at the table with flowers).
Attend a concert in a smaller, more intimate setting. You can watch a show by a performer who has been around for a long time. They have staying power primarily because they are entertaining.
After an amazing steak dinner, complimented by a beverage of your choice, head for a private hot tub. Set out candles and soft music for the perfect touch.
Fix a lunch with only Pink/Red for Valentine's Day, green foods (natural or dyed) for St. Patrick's Day (or or Orange/Brown for fall, or white for winter, etc.).
Organize a candlelight breakfast. Either buy the ingredients of your partner's favorite breakfast or order take out from a local restaurant, and then buy some candles.
Make a sweetheart tree for your girl. Use popcorn and gum drops.
Go to the local all-in-one store such as Wal-Mart or Meijer. Each go down a different aisle of the card section. Pick out the most romantic card that you can find. Give the cards to each other, and put them back on the shelf. Then pick the funniest, unusual, colorful, corney, etc.
Pack a picnic dinner and head out of the city at dinner time (away from the bright lights). Spend time looking at the stars and talking about dreams.
Build a fire, snuggle up, and read a good book or perhaps romantic poetry together. Make up some hot chocolate or spiced cider to enhance the evening.
Enjoy a nice romantic comedy alone. Remember the strawberries and cream.
Buy two cheap canvases and paint with toll paints or do finger painting and design a picture for one another. Choose something that describes yourself or something you appreicate about each other.
Finger paint portraits of each other or find a picture to copy. Wear grubby clothes or provide a smock to protect your clothes. After you clean up, feed each other fresh fruit. Even better, make up some chocolate covered strawberries.
Create a trail of candy from her door step, to her car, and have balloons tied to her car door handle, and antenae. Also tie balloons up in random places that she'll see on her way to work.
