Tip #1: Write Notes of Appreciation
Listen people…anyone can buy a card. And flowers are nice, but they die. Instead, do something that tells your partner how much they mean to you. Right where they brush their teeth in the morning (or somewhere you know they’re going to see it), plaster the mirror with post-it notes, so they are reminded of how much they mean to you first thing in the morning and start looking forward to your date later that night. Get creative with it and maybe even mix it up with some multi-colored Post-It Notes. It will blow your partner away.
Tip #2: Text Your Partner About the Date
Randomly text your partner in the middle of the day and tell them how flippin’ excited you are to spend time with them on your date later and how fun it’s going to be. Or give them a little tip about what’s going to happen and how much you’re looking forward to it. It’s called building anticipation, people…it works!
Tip #3: Create a Date Night Playlist
Make yourself a great playlist – you know, like back in the day when you made your high school sweetheart a mixed tape. You and your partner have your songs you like to listen to together. Go put them on a playlist and set the mood. Everything is better with a little music!
