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.

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.
(Romantic & Thoughtful)
a REAL man
Date Idea #3
Go do some B & B!
Bowling & Billiards That is!
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)
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)
Valentine themed books
Date Idea #4 Low on Cash

My Valentine memo Board
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)
- (warm) Vanilla
- Sugar Cookie (guilty pleasure)
