Valentine's Day is supposed to celebrate love and relationships. But, due to its commercial success and societal pressures, the holiday inadvertently brings a lot of pressure, stress, and sometimes disappointment to those who are coupled. However, if you truly don't care about Valentine's Day and won't be disappointed, at the very least, it's nice when your partner puts in a little extra effort to make you feel appreciated.
While a standard dinner date might be the go-to, it isn't for everyone. And since we're all busy (and planning takes time and energy that many us rarely have), we've rounded up Valentine's Day date ideas that will get you and your partner out of your comfort zones. From couple's massages to burlesque shows, these dates will not only provide excitement and pleasure but remind you why you fell for your partner in the first place.
Of course, it's up to you to book the actual date, but these ideas will hopefully do most of the planning leg work for you. Read on for our list of non-lame Valentine's Day date ideas. And don't forget to check back, since we will be updating the list with more ideas as the big day approaches.
