February 14th, like it or hate it, is coming.
One situation I have encountered is the "it's the first week of February and we are only 2 dates in."
It's too soon for so many of the Valentine's Day date ideas.
There is a choice to be made: ignore, avoid, or hit on a sweet but not too saccharine activity.
What are you to do?
Assuming you want to continue these dates, don't hide.
Here are five ideas that are Andrea approved.
And guess what, a guy or girl could suggest these.
1.) Check out a museum. St. Louis has so many to offer.
2.) Bake your favorite cookies together Bake 2 different kinds so you don't have to agree and have more options. Or if you can't bake, try Rice Krispie Treats or S'mores and fancify them.
3.) Go to a cozy coffee shop. Order and pay for each other's favorite drink (a gift they'll really like). Hand it off to him or her, then find a nook to talk it up.
4.) Bundle up, and go on a walk or hike. Try Pere Marquette if you like a chance of seeing eagles.
5.) Make a list of trilogy movies and start working your way through it.
Or if you want to nail it, forget everything I just said and buy tickets to see Casablanca at Powell Symphony Hall.
