You Will Need
- A dinner reservation
- A bouquet of flowers
Arrive bearing gifts
Arrive bearing gifts. Flowers, candy, and jewelry are no-brainers, but to practically guarantee success, add something that conveys a thoughtful commitment to the future—like a brochure from the romantic B&B you’re going to take her to next month.
Flatter her shamelessly
Flatter her shamelessly. She no doubt took pains to look nice, so be sure to notice if she’s wearing a new outfit or has done her hair differently.
Ask her if she’s lost weight
Ask her if she's lost weight. This makes every woman feel warm and fuzzy inside. Plus, a woman is more apt to get naked if she's feeling good about her body.
Spring for a good restaurant
Spring for a good restaurant; surveys show that women rate a restaurant meal as the number one way to celebrate Valentine’s Day, and a movie date as the worst.
Time it early
Time the date early, so you’re done with dinner by 9:00. If the night is still young, she’ll be more receptive to stretching it out with a nightcap at her place or yours.
When things get amorous, pull away and say goodnight. She’ll be more likely to reel you back in if she thinks it’s her idea.
