Entering into the Winter solstice in USA gives us the perfect opportunity for romantic make – up date ideas – just think: fireplaces, snugly duvets, hot chocolate, romantic movies and comfort foods like pizza and pasta. Here are some great ideas for getting cozy this winter. You can either organize them together as a couple (provided she has warmed up to you after the last fall out), or you can use it as an excuse to create a sense of “togetherness” or “team spirit” in trying to “glue” the relationship back together. Alternatively, for extra romance and excitement as part of your ‘making amends strategy’, you can organize a surprise date for your partner. One suggestion is to have a date at home and call it “Movie Night”.
If you or your partner has kids then the number one priority is finding a good baby sitter – or leaving the kids with their doting grandparents for the evening. After that, the night is all yours.
If the evening is a surprise for her, you can make her feel extra-special by organizing the movie night around her favorite things. My suggestion would be to choose a romantic “chick-flick” type movie and order her favorite take-out. Also, don’t even think about forgetting her favorite ice-cream or dessert!
Romantic movie night means popcorn and junk food – so stock up on all of these. The more choice there is, the more she will see how much effort has been involved. Before she gets home, make sure everything is neat and tidy and that she does not have to do any work. You want her relaxed and pleasantly surprised.
Set up the sitting room/television area with comfortable cushions and warm blankets – you could even put a mattress on the floor. Before you start the movie, chat about the good old days, about how the two of you met and what you thought at that moment. Look back at the travels and enjoyable times you two had together and all the fun moments. If need be, bring out the photo albums and browse through pictures of the two of you together and recall what was happening when that picture was taken. This is all part of the warm-up for later.
Refill the wine/champagne/snifter glasses, dim the lighting and press play.
Finally, when the movie is over and there is this “awww geesh” kind of feeling in the air, gets up silently, switch on the CD and invite your lady to dance with you to your favorite song.
I can assure you after everything else that has preceded the evening, this will be the clincher!
