This Thursday, it's Valentines Day. Are you a thoughtful Valentine, or a last minute find a gift and hope for the best Valentine?  You've still got some time to show that special someone that you really care. How do you do that? Instead of a traditional "Gift,"  how about spending a little fun time together. Here are some romantic ideas:

GO ROLLER SKATING

Remember roller skating? It was such a blast when I was a kid...and I think I had some awesome romantic moments at the Roller Skating rink in my day, with some awesome guy showing me all his cool skate moves and holding my hand to teach me how to skate.  It was VERY romantic.

TAKE A COOKING CLASS

If cooking isn't your thing, then DON'T do this; but if you have fun in the kitchen together, this could be a good time.

GO OUT FOR DESSERTS AND DRINKS

What's better than taste testing a bunch of desserts and having a few of your favorite beverages.  If she's got a sweet tooth, this might be the one time of year you can get her off her diet to enjoy some sweet love.

TAKE A DANCING LESSON

Do you want a chance to hold his/her hand? If you can dance...this is a super great idea. If you can't....ummm...don't try it. It will probably not end well. Nothing is more non romantic than a guy that can't dance. Use your other super powers.

BUNDLE UP AND LOOK AT THE STARS

Put on your jackets on if it's a nice winter evening; grab a bottle of wine and a couple wine glasses and head outside to look up at the sky. Preferably in the country, on a lake; somewhere where you can actually see the universe.

TRY A PAINT N PARTY CLASS

Can you paint? It really doesn't matter. The worse you are, the more fun you're going to have. We can set you up with some classes here!

GO ICE FISHING

If this is something you don't do every single weekend, this might be fun. If it's what you do everyday, she's going to know that you're doing this for you; not for her. Tread carefully.

GO DOWNHILL SKIING

Do you like to ski? If so, this could be a fun date. Cuddle on the chairlift to the top; catch some beautiful scenery. Ski and then get cozy by the fireplace inside.

TAKE A BURLESQUE CLASS

Lots of women in central Minnesota are discovering their inner "sexy" with classes at Scarlett Revolver. Ask our Abbey about that one. She's a great dancer!

GO TO A BURLESQUE SHOW

You can ask Abbey about this one too. You can take classes and perform at Pioneer Place here in St. Cloud.
