Romantic Valentine’s day restaurants for V Day 2018
It must have been all the Disney movies I watched as a kid that made me become the hopeless romantic I am today. I’ve always dreamed that Valentine’s Day will be the day my other half would declare his undying love for me with a blasting boombox outside my house, before pampering me with all the food I love. Sadly, life has its way of twisting things around and my boyfriend turns out to be hopelessly unromantic. This means no flowers or chocolates, and 14 February is just another mundane day. If you are in a similar situation – I feel you. So why not give your beau a little hint and send him or her this list of romantic Valentine’s Day date night ideas, and maybe, just maybe, you might be treated to an unforgettable dinner this year.
