Romantic dates shouldn't be reserved specifically for V-Day.
If you want to be wined and dined, make that happen. You don't have to wait on: 1.) someone to take you out or 2.) a special holiday reserved for such activities. If you want a five course meal with the works and a day at the spa, make those reservations. Why wait for someone else to treat you right when you can do so for yourself? Not saying that it's not nice to have others treat you like you're royalty, but in the meantime -- instead of waiting around sulking, take yourself on a date.
The great thing about solo dates is that you don't have to question who will be picking up the bill, you won't have to worry about being nervous and you won't have to be anxious about whether you'll get that goodnight kiss or night. There are several romantic dates I would love to go on, but have yet to experience and I've gotten to the point where it makes no sense for me to wait around for someone else to do for me what I can do for myself. Keep scrolling to see some of my dream dates inspired by @marshalledgar and his 'Best First Date' card [seen here].
A Romantic Picnic In The Park
Something about good scenery and good food amongst yourself just sounds like a good idea if you ask me. Oh, and let's not forget the wine -- you never know who you might stumble into on the night home.
A Romantic Night In
Who says you have to go out and spend tons of money to enjoy yourself. Throw on some jazz or slow jams [two of my favorite genres], grab some groceries from the store, light some candles and get to cooking. It will definitely be a therapeutic and relaxing evening for yourself.
Take Yourself To The Opera
I've always wanted to go see a live opera show. Something about getting dressed up and watching a group of people sing beautifully screams romanticism to me. Serious Carrie Bradshaw vibes.
