5 Great Date Ideas for the Romantically Challenged

by Tina Auten, Staff Writer

With Valentine’s Day upon us, those in a romantic rut may still be scratching their heads trying to find the perfect way to celebrate.  Traditional candlelit dinner for two – or something different? Spending quality time and adding romance to your every day life is definitely in style, but if your inner Cupid needs inspiration try one of our 5 Valentine’s Day Dates:

Confections for Two – Forget dinner this year and celebrate with your favorite dessert! From chocolate cake to tiramisu, your sweet tooth will be crazy in love with the choices available in the Southlake area.

Romantic Repast – Enjoy the intimacy of dinner for two in your own home when you pick up Valentine’s Dinner for Two from your favorite restaurant.  For those looking for a special night out, a Valentine’s Day Dinner Cruise on beautiful Lake Grapevine is sure to please.

Cinema Enthusiasts – If your passion is popcorn for two and the big screen, then we have just the ticket for you with the Valentine’s Day release of Safe Haven and Beautiful Creatures at Harkins Theatres.

Lovebird Retreat – Escape from the world for a few hours with your loved one and experience the mental and physical benefits of a massage from Corinthian Wellness Spa

Chocolate Connoisseurs  – Skip the traditional box of chocolate and head over to Central Market’s 5th Annual Chocolate Festival.  More than a dozen famous chocolate makers and chocolatiers will be passing out samples of award-winning confections.

For even more ideas, check out these romantic gestures.
