It’s never a good feeling when you have to say, “No, boo” when she wants to go to Nobu . And it’s outright pointless if you have to go with no boo.
OK, sorry, but you get the point.
Sometimes you just don’t have it like that. Not to worry. The weather is getting warmer all over the United States, ushering in a wave of activity to get to know her better that doesn’t involve a hefty bill … which arrives as she pretends to play an impromptu game of Temple Run on her iPhone.
1. The Bike Ride: I hope this goes without saying, but make sure she can ride a bike, first, before you decide on this date. If your city or town doesn’t have a bike sharing program (which are all the rage), head to a bike shop and rent two bikes you can ride around while getting it comfortably with. Keep in mind: women almost unanimously love adventures and surprises. This one delivers. If she has a bike already, at least spring for the ice cream.
2. The Classic Picnic: Lunch on the grass on a plush blanket with all sorts of goodies is an afternoon that will never fall out of fashion with the budget-minded, the romantically-inclined. Grapes, strawberries, lunch meats, cheeses, wine, Prosecco — all cheap and can be tucked away to consume when you’re ready. If you’re particularly enterprising, break this out after the bike ride. Y’all will both be starving.
