Something special to do with the GF [Solved]

edited April 2010 in Help / Advice Forum
Today my GF wants me to think of something for us to do that we don't do everyday. Difficulty: we're both broke, and I've never been much of a sentimental guy before starting to date her.

So... when you want to take your lady or man out to do something special, what would you do? Cuz I got nothing.

    My boyfriend and I will go on a picnic or to a new, different restaurant.

    What do you guys usually do and have you had any ideas that you tossed out because you didn't think they were special enough?

    We've (mostly I've) been too busy with school and work to really do something special. We usually just sit in the house and watch Farscape or Stargate Universe or something.

    That picnic idea does sound great though...

    We did two picnics that were big successes. The first we did by a small creek with a little fall. That was very traditional picnic. We brought sandwiches and snacks and a big blanket and laid around relaxing.

    For the second we went up to the roof of my apartment building at night because it had a great view of the Boston skyline and we had some nice prosciutto and mozzarella sandwiches with wine and all that. That was a fun one because someone mistook my bf for a burglar and the cops briefly joined our picnic. They declined some pie though.

    Step 1. Walk out of the house

    Step 2. _________

    Step 3. Profit!

    Depending on where you live, there's bound to be free cool stuff to do. A lot of museums will have a free/cheap day; for instance the art museum here in Philly's almost free on Sunday and it's a nice way to spend an afternoon. Picnics, walks in the park, even something like bowling or going to a roller skating rink is pretty cheap and fun.

    -see if any museums near you have free admission days
    -do the picnic thing
    -do some research on massage and practice on her in a dimly lit room with candles and such
    -cook her something nice you wouldn't normally cook
    -if you are both fit, go for a hike if you have any nice areas relatively nearby
    -laser tag/mini golf/bowling

    just use your imagination, what are things you'd find fun to do? don't even try and think of 'dates', just think of things you like to do, and maybe they are things you can spin into a nice night out.

    Thanks for the ideas everybody! We're within walking distance of the park, so a picnic sounds good.

    You guys are great, as always.

    A picnic is a good idea, even if you just do it in your house on the living room floor or something.

    Pick out a book and read it to her, or take turns reading it to each other. It doesn't have to be a super romantic book, even just a favorite of yours that she hasn't read or vice versa.

    Go for a walk, a bike ride, or even a drive to somewhere nearby you've never been.

    Picnics and museums are cool.

    Do you and your girlfriend enjoy any sports? Or did you when you were younger? You could get all competitive with each other, gets you excited for... other things.

    Or I recommend a night adventure climbing/exploring something. I climbed a building with a date not long ago. It was sweet. edit: then we went looking for a limestone mine shaft, but didn't find it. That was fun too.
