I am always in favor of traditional date options such as dinner and a movie. However, I also like to try things such as ice-skating, canoeing, kayaking, jazz clubs, comedy clubs, picnics, music festivals, and outdoor festivals.
I am also a fairly capable cook so I am not opposed to preparing a nice romantic meal. Frequently, I find that I am usually the first to offer something special like this and it really bothers me that no one has previously cared enough to make such efforts.
