Date Idea #1 Sweet, Romantic & Cheerful

sprinkle confetti around in the shapes of

kisses, cupids, hearts Roses confetti even just red balloon confetti any of those will do.(pInk, SIlver Red or White) for

picinic, in gift or card, dinner, dance floor, or the buffet table at a party

use a different 1 for each part of the date.

Get some that are champagne glasses, Kisses, maybe bride & groom confetti and put it in the box with the engagement ring (so it comes cascading out!)

P.S. I Love You

I thought this was a really good romantic (though a little sad) movie.

When a Husband dies, 'he' sends letters to his wife to help her cope with his passing. It's sort of a treasure hunt in a way and an adventure!

 

Valentine videos - for all

weather you're a romantic or an Anti'tine I've tried to include it all here..(esp. if the word valentine is in it) but sadly due to new guidelines... I've had to pull back on the list.

Leap Year

When in Rome

P.S. I love you

Valentine's Day

There's My Bloody Valentine (The original) not the one with Jansen Ackles)

Date IDEA #2

You don't have to go out to 'go out'

If you have a patio, set up the table with 2 taper candles maybe some rose petals

make the dinner yourself, maybe you can even have a friend help you out and serve the 2 of you.

Date Idea #3

Go do some B & B!

Bowling & Billiards That is!

Bowling

I think bowling is great for a first date.

Its a great icebreaker & it helps you both to be relaxed.

(because you have your mind on the game)

Billiards

I like playing pool as well

This is the same idea for the bowling

however this one makes you think

also for either one.. if oen of you does not know how to play get closer to teach the other

Dress Appropriately- No skirts or heels. (trust me on that)

Date Idea #4 Low on Cash

Play board games

Blanket & Bug spray & stargaze

Take in amature night at a comedy club

Raid the local dollar store for poker items (including peanuts etc to use as markers)

Spend the day at the beach snorkle, collect sea shells

Snowball fight

LOVELY SCENTS - are these the TRUE Love Potions?

Some scents are warm & sensual these are a few I can think of. Ladies put these on your pulse points (esp. The ylang ylang & the guys will go wild) but remember if they don't not my fault as our body chemistries are different so try them out and try othes let me know what's worked for you!

As for the guys... Well The only suggestion I have for you is the Cologne COOL WATER (I have litterally Almost attacked a couple guys wearing it) also There's a Chrome scent & a calvin Klein one that were very for lack of a better term 'Baiting'


  • Ylang Ylang (sensual)
  • Jasmine
  • Roses
  • (warm) Vanilla
  • Sugar Cookie (guilty pleasure)
