New Delhi [India], Jan 21 (ANI): With a new burst in the year, comes a fresh new start to finding love and happiness.
While dating and figuring out each other is enriching, it can also take a daunting turn, especially when it come to dealing with a mass- hysteria of cosmic proportions, aptly coined as Valentine's Day.
The amount of publicity this special day has received in urban mindset put's a great pressure on people in making this special day the best event ever.
Flowers and special dinners, however, have lost their charm in the tropes of becoming predictable. In order to bring a new spin to the old practices, go the off-beaten track through the following ideas, says Solene Paillet, Head of Communication Management of Gleeden:
1. A face-off your amongst your favourite eats.
Food is one of the biggest allies when it comes to favourite food, two can start up a storm. You swear by the sausage pizza at the joint across town and his favourite coffee doesn't quite put the kick. It's the time to nip this dispute in the bud with back-to-back tastings, adding points of taste, aroma and everything else. Winner buys drinks afterward, making it a fun event for both to engage in.
2. Make ramen noodles or dinner from scratch.
A couple that cooks together, rocks the world. Test your compatibility in the kitchen and settle in for a night of Masterchef-like shenanigans making any bone-warming dish that you both know. A little bit of chopping and cutting together will set the mood for the night to come as both bask in the bliss of a well-crafted meal.
3. Go crazy while indoor rock-climbing.
Pump up the blood through an activity that tests bonds and endurance. Rock-climbing is a trust-building activity among smallish corporate teams that provides ample of opportunity for couples to sweat over. Whether you choose to belay one another or boulder, you'll form an instant bond over the physical, palm-sweat-inducing challenge. Oh, and before anything, it's crazy fun too.
5. Dance to live music from another era.
A taste of the era gone is what the doctor ordered. Make your way to the local jazz club or swing hotspot, where the company and the drinks are set to put a spin to your night. Get your groove on to the house orchestra, or just lounge and enjoy a little music appreciation with your new boo and see the sparks fly as you jive into the night.
6. Hunt for photo booths.
Nothing says love like the cheesy old gesture of clicking pictures in an old-timey photo booth. There are various sites that help you find all the vintage photo booths in your area, so you can legitimately practice your kissy faces and silly poses for the years to come. Photo booths are known to put a charm to things with their campy themes and cutesy pictures.
7. Rent a nice camera and do cool things with it.
Your iPhone storage remains almost full, anyway. It's time to learn a few basic DSLR settings and get outside. Explore an abandoned place go on a hike with panoramic views to get the most sumptuous spots. When night falls, set the camera to a long exposure and draw hearts with sparklers (hey, it's Valentine's Day), or take pictures from a rooftop bar, Instagram-cityscape style. Build an album afterwards to live up the moment and bask in love. (ANI)
