Top free romantic date ideas
“To enjoy romance at its best, try to be as simple as possible” – A scholarly thought like this should be a good enough lead to you that you don’t have to be scared, come the thought of going out on a romantic date.
Most of us would just jump at the idea of having a romantic date with our partner. Yet, the ambiance of a romantic date is so overwhelming for some of us that it tapers down to a “phew” when it comes to arranging things. There are some simple ways by which you could impress your partner.
The venue makes a difference
You don’t have to host your partner for an expensive, candlelit dinner for your date. Though splurging money seems to be a norm, especially for romantic events, simple things work here. For example, if your partner likes a stroll by a nearby lake, take her out to the lake and probably jet her around. Your partner may also like a nice hiking expedition to a nearby hilltop. What stops you from going with your partner there, especially if the hill is not too tough to climb and is not too far away from your home either?
What you do for your partner makes a lot of difference
When your partner comes in for a romantic date, he or she expects to be treated differently. Basically, the feeling you got to be replicating for that day is “It is only you and me, and no one else.” Cook up some nice dinner for her, if you are inviting her home.
Get your stock of CDs (it can be trance, blues, or jazz, as these are considered best fits for a romantic interlude). If you have some wine in your home, keep it chilled.
What you do on your romantic date is not important, but how you do it, is
This means you have to pay attention to the tiny things, which of course don’t cost you. For example, if both of you go out for a date, take the lead and ensure that your partner doesn’t really feel out of place.
Talk, but don’t overdo it
For any romantic date to be successful, you and your partner must have a good dialogue. If you are an extrovert, you can take the lead in initiating a topic, but make sure you give enough space for your partner to express his or her feelings. The moment your partner feels that you are the dominant entity in the date, it wouldn’t take long for him or her to walk out.
Often, the best of dates go wrong, and the dates where a lot of money is spent, go wrong too. That’s because people forget to do the basics right. And basics don’t cost, do they? From the simple measures suggested above, it is quite evident how you can make your romantic date, a success.
