The first of anything is difficult! So naturally, you shouldn't fly solo for your first Valentine's Day with your current significant other. That's why I'm here, to give you some fool-proof date ideas!
Sure it was awkward, but clearly it worked! On your first Valentine’s day together, repeat the first date you ever had together. Hopefully things will feel a little more natural this time!
2 Amusement Park
If you haven’t been to an amusement park since you were a kid, try it again! Amusement parks are a different type of fun with your significant other. Plus, you'll take adorable photos!
3 Go Shopping
Let's be honest, by the first Valentines Day he probably hasn't mastered shopping for you yet. Plus, he's still really eager to please you and take you places that make you happy! So if you love shopping and gifts, it's a win-win for both of you!
4 Emphasis on the Day

There's no better way to get to know someone than getting lost with them!
6 Watch Each Other's Favorite Movie
Share something you both love and appreciate! And get some quality cuddling time in!
7 Try Something New
Take a class together, like couples yoga, pottery, or even dance. Learning a new skill, whether you fail or succeed, will be fun for the both of you. Make sure it's something new to both of you though, so neither one of you feels inferior.
If you have similar tastes in music, why not find tickets for a concert you'll both enjoy?
9 Play House
Maybe this Valentine's Day is the first of many! Give yourselves a preview of the future by having a dinner party for two and a quiet night in.
