"Do not just look at your boyfriend as just a boyfriend. Look at him as a friend, too." ― Vanessa Hudgens
As a member of the male fraternity, let me tell you, being a guy isn't always about being rough or tough. At times, we do like it when our girlfriends go the extra mile and do something for us that is straight out of a Mills and Boon. Also, unlike the opposite sex, we aren't exactly high maintenance. Therefore, it doesn't usually take a superhuman effort to please us or melt our hearts.
Flicks that will make you two click
Start with a movie date, but not at the same old multiplex. Have it at the nearest drive-in theater instead. Let it be a surprise for him, plan it in advance. Stock your car with some food, popcorn, cola, and a nice warm blanket. Then, pick him up from his home, and when he asks you where it is that you're going, keep mum. A drive-in movie experience under the starlit sky, amidst the cool night breeze, can be a truly lovely romantic date idea for him indeed.
Romantic outdoor excursions
Plan a surprise 'couple's day out' for the two of you. You can pack a nice picnic lunch and head out into the countryside, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. You can sit under the shade of a mango tree, on the banks of a nearby river, or at the edge of a clear blue lake, and spend some quality time with each other. Alternatively, if your guy has an adventurous streak to his personality, consider a day of river rafting, para-sailing, or something similar.
Get in your amatory best with aquatic ecstasy
Plan a trip to the beach with your guy. Enjoy the sun, sand, and the surf. Zoom around on jet skis, enjoy a couple of salty ocean dips courtesy those fun banana boat rides, and go snorkeling! Then, for a breather, chill out with a cool drink in a comfortable hammock under the shade of a coconut tree. Post siesta, enjoy another nice dip in the ocean, followed by a nice walk around sunset. Finally, top it off with a lovely candlelit dinner at a beach side shack.
Unfortunately, if it happens to be a dull, rainy day and you end up being stuck indoors, do not fret. There's lots of stuff you can do indoors. Call him over to your place (or vice versa). Make some hot chocolate, and a bowl of hot, steamy noodles (or some caramel popcorn), and snuggle up on the couch to watch a lighthearted romantic flick. Additionally, if both of you have a sweet tooth, you could also try your hand at baking a cake, or some chocolate chip cookies.
