If you meet a girl you really want to spend time with, it can be overwhelming trying to pick out a date that will be romantic without being too cheesy or contrived. The last thing you want to do is go through all the effort of taking her out on a special night only for it to flop because it turned out cheesy or over dramatic. Knowing what kind of dates will be seen as romantic and what will be seen as being over the top is a good way to help plan your perfect night without messing anything up.
Spending the Night In
“Plan an overnight trip and get close to her”
Spending the night in with your date can rarely go wrong. It’s a much more intimate setting than that insanely expensive Italian restaurant you wanted to take her to, not to mention easier on your wallet. As long as you have a clean house or apartment and you take steps to make sure that everything is comfortable and romantic, you should be set for a great night. Make dinner with a dessert to really amp up the romance and share a unique hands-on experience with each other. Of course, this can be somewhat difficult if you don’t know how to cook, so you may want to consider a different option if you think you might have trouble with that aspect of the evening.
Taking Trips Together
Whether you choose to go on a short day trip or a weekend vacation, taking a trip with your girlfriend can be very romantic – provided you plan properly. Go for a ride on a scenic road for a few hours to get away from the stresses of life and have time for a good conversation, and consider bringing along milkshakes or her favorite snack when you go to make it special. Take her away for the weekend for a miniature adventure together. The benefits of going on a trip, especially if it’s an overnight trip, is that you get to spend a long time together instead of a regular date, which usually only lasts a few hours. Plus, getting away from regular life for a little while can be just what she needs to really open up and get intimate with you. Even a short trip can be romantic, but plan properly to avoid the stresses of travel.
Combine All Her Favorites and Surprise Her
“Surprise her with a memorable date”
If you know what her favorite things are, why not take the chance to make the perfect date by combining some of them? If she loves the beach and she loves to travel, consider taking her on a trip to the beach without telling her beforehand. Pick her up after work and sweep her off to a romantic getaway or to her favorite restaurant. The element of surprise will add to the romance, as long as she already trusts you a bit. If the relationship is fairly new, you should probably wait on the surprise dates until you know how she reacts and if she even enjoys surprises.
