The Worst of the Worst Valentine’s Day Date Ideas
Valentine’s Day is less than a month away (14th February) and you are hyped up to take your girl out for a special night on the town. But hold up Mr. Date Doctor, it doesn’t take a lot to fall from a hero to a zero in your quest to conquer your girlfriend’s heart.
Obviously it should be a night that stands out from your usual mini dates. This list will show you which ideas to keep away from and help you avoid being alone on the 14th of February.
Sports pub + hot wings
A BIG NO NO – unless she REALLY REALLY loves the combination of hot chicken wings and the sports pub. There are definitely many girls who like sports and would watch the game with you and rub it in your friend’s faces, when her team wins. But seriously bro, it’s Valentine’s Day not the Superbowl. Romeo and Juliet never kissed, while having a nice BBQ chicken feast or sitting in front of the flat screen and watching Kobe finishing up a 40+ points game. You might consider those nights on another day, but not on this particular day. Just make her feel that you were ready to do something different and dropped your usual games recap show late night. So leave Kobe and Sharapova alone and take your girl out somewhere nice.
Your friend’s band is playing a gig
Okay dude, you might as well ask yourself now, what this night’s going to be all about – your friends or your girlfriend’s? I’ll give you a hint: it’s hers! There is always a big night out guaranteed, when your mate's having a gig, but you’d be doing yourself a favor and going to the next one (assuming there is one). If she loves the band and the music, this would be a nice date, but not for this special occasion. You want to make her feel special, show her how much you care – Romance NOT Bromance!
Saw Movie Marathon
Maybe you have forgotten, but there are 8 Saw flicks out now currently. Hence, maybe on another day you would call up a movie marathon with your mates. Bu again, this isn’t a Valentine gift you want your girl to sit through. Always remember – ROMANCE! There was never a talk about severed limbs and bleeding guts in ‘The Notebook.' She should enjoy the chocolate you gave her, not bring them up again. So skip the horror part and sit through a romantic comedy, which she will be in to. It won’t kill you to watch some romantic movie, but it may kill her to spend her night with Jigsaw.
Diamond – encrusted toilet seat
Valentine’s Day is never about the money, but taking out your girl for dinner in a very fancy restaurant and then gets her even a $105,000 diamond encrusted toilet seat? This is what you call chivalry! This is what Ben Affleck might have thought, when he gave his Valentine gift to his past ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez. No wonder, it was voted the least romantic gesture of all time.
I would be quite careful with the gifts you want to buy, but don’t we men have that problem all year long? If it’s a diamond encrusted toilet seat or a Krispy Kreme heart-shaped doughnut, always try to get a second opinion. It might sound cool to you, but it is probably not the most appropriate gift.
I mean, there is never anything wrong with faith, but if your Valentine’s date really ends up in a church … it’s better when you just go home, forget the night and wait for next Valentine’s Day!
