When she steps into his car, she would be asked where they would head to dinner that night. After all, being with someone who totally gets us is nothing short of a celebration in itself and life is all about breaking monotony.
Here are some ideas to kick-start your two-week journey of corny date ideas that every couple should try out at least once. Head to the arcade… …and try to win your partner a soft toy. Flowers, are overrated plus they wilt away so quickly ; and jewellery is just too expensive. Instead of going to a store and buying the first cute thing you see, how about earning the gift by battling your way in an arcade? And you get to do it in front of your partner who will certainly appreciate your effort and willingness to please.
Explore around furniture stores… …and plan your dream home together. Nothing spells cheesy like taking a leaf out of the ultra-cheesy Days Of Summer movie to plan your date.
But somewhere in the cheesiness of it all, lies the magic of free things. Additionally this is a great way of gauging your respective personal tastes and furniture design preferences, which will be invaluable when you actually have your own place together. Bonus points for people who can already ice-skate, because then they can hold hands and guide each other around the rink like the romantic soul that they are. Stargaze beneath open skies… …and name stars after each other.
Given that there are not many stars visible in the Kuala Lumpur night skyline, you could take a trip in your HR-V to a nearby hilltop and stargaze there. Go all corny and name the constellations after your partner too! Write a sappy love song… Image Credit: Pair your song with a musical instrument of your choice.
Get a caricature drawing done… …and frame it up for your office desk. Caricature artists are situated everywhere, from malls to bazaars.
Just strike a pose and smile to have you and your partner forever immortalised in the form of cute and comical characters. Take up a free dance class… …and dance like the unskilled people you are. There are free swing-dancing lessons offered at Publika or you could go for a free trial lesson at most dance studios.
Head to a gourmet food store… …and get ingredients for a picnic. Drive on out to the nearest gourmet food store and pick out some ingredients that tantalises your set of taste buds. Cuddle up with some furkids at SPCA… …and volunteer to bathe them. Your partner will also get to see a kind and generous side of you, which will definitely score you some brownie points! Challenge each other to a board game… …and the loser pays for dinner. Challenging each other to a computer game or a video game is the norm for typical gamers.
Collect a bunch of really mushy romantic movies Image Credit: All these movies are the perfect combination to a cosy cuddling session under a warm blanket. Get the tissues ready because trust me, you will need them. Head to the bookstore… …and read silently next to each other. This date idea is perfect for introverts and it costs next to nothing to laze the day away at a cosy bookstore with a book or magazine in hand. It works well because regardless of your taste in literary, it is an activity that both parties can engage in without feeling out of place.
Slow stroll through a park… …and people-watch together. Narrate the story of each person you see and give each person a wacky persona. Have a date night in your car… …up in Genting Highlands. Buy pizza, and take a drive up to Genting and park at a romantic lookout point.
Then you can roll down the windows to enjoy the cool air, while you munch away with vast views before you. The new HR-V is fresh, unexpected, and exciting—just like how your love life should be.
