The Perfect Date: A Girl’s Perspective
by Kalynn Brown, Staff Writer
The perfect Valentine’s date would be a surprise! The date would be classy and somewhat traditional. Of course, dinner somewhere with actual waiters and menus is preferable. But, what happens after that?
In case my fiancé happens to read this, here are some of my favorite ideas: bowling, skating, going home and making dessert together then watching a movie, or going out for coffee, then going home and playing board games.
The best date I have ever been on was dinner on the top of the Space Needle after wandering around the Seattle Art Museum. Was it totally frivolous and extravagant? Of course! Was it beautiful, romantic, and completely memorable? It most certainly was!
Then, there is the timeless question of flowers. Red roses? White? No roses? Here’s the simple answer: if you are buying a girl flowers, you should probably know what her favorite flowers are, so you should buy her those. If you somehow are at a loss for her favorite, buy her red roses. Girls are very picky. But, if they like Valentine’s Day, then they probably like romance. And, if they like romance, they probably will like these ideas and your romantic endeavors will be a success.

The perfect date should be unforgettable, mysterious, personal, intimate, and unique. It would combine the passions and personalities shared between two people into a unique event, which will be remembered and shared in stories foryears.
This can be something as simple as a movie, as elegant as star gazing in the moonlight, or as intimate as the foxtrot. It all depends on the people involved, their passions, and what makes them truly a couple in their hearts.
The perfect date can be anything to anyone. To me, the perfect date is elegant, intimate, and personal. However, it is my job to make it unique, a bit of a mystery, and unforgettable for her.
I really enjoy hiking and being up in the mountains, so I would start with a hike up a mountain pass. Though, I would have gone up before hand to set up a surprise. I would set up a picnic table with a table cloth, glasses, candles, a picnic basket, and a small radio playing some of our favorite songs. I would have cooked a few special dishes and would set up the table when we get there. I would offer my hand for a dance. This would be the perfect ending to my perfect date.
