Coming up with new and interesting romantic date ideas can seem hard at times; when you want this perfect combination of coolness, charm, showing the best version of you, etc. to happen it can get a little exhausting to achieve, aiming for perfection on your dates can oftentimes be counter-productive.
But fear no more, I’ll help you get some clarity and perspective so you can hit bulls-eye on this one with these 6 awesome romantic date ideas and a few tips!
First thing you should realize before you try any romantic date ideas is that romance is not about the table cloths, candles, French waiters, or fat eastern European violinists playing her favorite song. Romance is all about the general vibe you set in your interaction with her, the way you treat her, in a nutshell the FRAME that is set.
