How to spend the day with your significant other

In case you don’t know, I’m a romantic guy. There’s nothing I love more than spending quality time with my girlfriend and showering her with gifts.
Valentine’s Day is the best time of the year because I have a reason to do both of my favorite things! Also, it’s cool to get gifts, too. The purpose of this article is to give couples some ideas on how you can spend your Valentine’s Day and live it to the fullest.
One of the things you can do is get a heart-shaped pizza from Pizza King. They taste the same as all of their other pizzas (which is the best pizza in the land of Big Rapids). My girlfriend and I have been buying the amazing pizza for two years now and we have no regrets.
If you’re not into pizza (funny joke), then Applebee’s is a good idea, too. Applebee’s is about as fancy as you get in Big Rapids, so it gives you a reason to dress up formally and you and your lover will look so cute! If you go after 10 p.m., then all appetizers will be half off.
Another thing you can do (for the first time ever) is get heart-shaped ice cream cakes from Dairy Queen (made by yours truly). Being an employee at DQ, I can personally tell you that this $10 purchase will be one of the best purchases you make in the history of ever. What better way to show your love for your significant other than to give them an ice cold, edible heart made of happiness?
Sometimes, less is more. One of my favorite things to do with my girlfriend is to lay down and watch sappy, romantic films. Now that it’s Valentine’s Day, I have a reason to not be judged by my peers. So pop in one of your favorite romantic films (The Mummy, Empire Strikes Back, Rambo), cuddle up with your lover, with some hot chocolate and get to watching!
Why not wander around town, hands clasped and show your love to everyone in the world (if people honk at you or give you the middle finger, you’re doing it right). Many people around the world think public display of affection is gross and uncomfortable. Well I think its fine. Seeing other people happy and in love makes me happy. There’s no greater feeling in the world than seeing other people share the happiness you feel.
You and your lover could go to Walmart or Meijer and impulsively buy something for one another. You could pick a gift out for each other and it’d be really thoughtful and cute. My girlfriend and I usually travel through one of the stores (or both) and buy lots of chocolate.
You may be asking yourself, “Do we really need to do anything for Valentine’s Day?” You and your significant other could just lay in bed together and do nothing. School and work are really stressful, so why not take a day where you both just lay down and nap? Remember when I said “less is more?” That applies here, too.
Sometimes, you just need to get away from it all. So why not take a drive somewhere? The destination won’t matter. Wouldn’t it be great to go to a new town and experience a new routine? I know it’s just a city or two away, but it’d be a cheap mini-vacation.
