The big picture: think outside-the-box and go with a more personal approach.
We would ideally love every date night to be a 'Foolproof and Memorable Date'. You know the ones where we put together an actual itinerary, dress to the occasion, get some flowers, soak in the most romantic ambiance and then, talk about it forever. Thanks to the movies for setting that bar high. The reality is either we get swamped with work or simply don’t know how to put one together. And most dates end up being Netflix-and-Pizza kind of dates.
Admittedly, there’s a lot at stake especially if it’s a special occasion or, you’re still trying to impress your date. Here’s how to get started:
1. Put together an actual plan in place. Look up the opening hours, location, driving time, what to expect, availability. Don’t just surprise your date and yourself with a concert that’s sold out or a restaurant that now exists only in the cyberspace.
2. Tailor the plan to the occasion and the couple you are. Look out for the small hints your partner drops for things they like to do or a bucket list.
Memorable dates don't have to be expensive or extravagant. Simply just thoughtful. At DateFyx, we want to lend a helping hand to those who intend to do something special but are clueless. Here are some suggestions.
