3. Dancing the Night Away
There’s nothing better to help you break out of your traditional date routine than a night out dancing.

4. A Plan to Have No Plan
Sometimes a little spontaneity is much needed. Drive through streets you wouldn’t normally go to, visit museums and shopping malls and dine at restaurant you haven’t eaten at yet. Let the night take you where it takes you, enjoying the ride along the way.
5. Recreate Your First Date
Unless you went skydiving on your first date, recreating your first date may stray into the area of a traditional date, but it is an evening that will stand out for you nonetheless. Recreating your first date will remind each other why you began liking the other person in the first place. Act like that new, young couple you were when you just began. There are few days where it’s OK to be a little cheesy, and Valentine’s Day is one of them!
