If she’s an Austen-worshiping, Darcy-loving heart, plan it the real classic way!

Summer comes with a promise of at least a week or two of a vacation, well-deserved and long due. Meaning that if not much, you can steal one entire day as an escape to love! Pack along a basketful of your favorite foods (not forgetting a bottle of wine and just one glass!), a blanket to laze all the hours in each other’s arms away, and head to a beautiful countryside.
FYI: Reading your favorite excerpt from the classic could be the highlight of the date!

2. Let the child inside you share the love – go for a water fight

And yes, adding the surprise of a water balloon shower is totally worth it!

With summers, you know that the child inside of you screams ‘Water ho!’ and even I can hear it. So what better a way to have the craziest time together than engaging in a full blown water fight? Yes, collect all your childhood toys – water guns, balloons, lots and lots of water (and some colors for the surprise attack maybe), and I can bet my hat that you would simply never be able to dry the wet thrill this date has in store for you!

3. The perfect summer date calls for having a fun Ferris wheel ride – raid the summer fairs!

And don’t you forget that long due kiss on the very top.

Summers come with the excitement of fairs and amusement parks bubbling up all around you Yes, you’re going to lock your hands with your beloved, munch on some flavored popcorn, lick some candy floss, shoot some balloons for a teddy, ride that Ferris wheel, and have the kiss that you’ve also dreamed of. Sigh!

4. Forget the clubs – make the date count at a ‘make your own ice-cream Sunday bar’

And keep hitting one cone after another, till you’re high on that sweet!

Ditch that ear numbing music for the sensual melody of her breath on your shoulder, and instead of getting high on the alcohol shots, you can engage in a never-ending round of ice creams. Go on a street food quest and don’t stop until you’ve tasted it all. And just so you know, licking that creamy foam off her lips is going to be magical!

5. Hit the road to find some old school romance – cycle your way through!

Don’t forget to fill your fuel tank with love! 😉

No, no one’s calling shotgun this time. Hunt for the most romantic vicinity around your city and get your own two wheels to explore it – one bicycle where you can carry her (pecking a kiss on her forehead!) or go for a tandem vehicle where you can double with her and try that photo perfect (and hard as hell!) kiss while doing so.

The sand + the sun + the fun + just the two of you = the best date ever!

Lose the slippers, unbutton your shirts, grab a sand bucket, and a flash little and hunt for your childhood treasures together. Lying under the sun, bathing in the sea breeze, you’ll be collecting so much more than just the shells! Priceless memories!

7. Go for a walk that you’ll always remember – the evening stroll of love!

With the seemingly endless evenings that the summer brings along, this is one of the most simplest yet awesome summer date ideas you are simply going to love. Be it strolling along the beach or measuring the pavement around the parks in love-fueled lazy steps, just spend all your evenings walking with her head resting on your shoulder and you’ll not want to stop!

8. Have the timeless moments with the sun

Wake up to a Sunrise with a cup of coffee and kiss the sunset good night with a bottle of wine.

Summer is all about the sun. You can either frown on the heat or bathe in the golden magic it brings along. So, head out early with a thermos full of sweet iced tea, an iTunes playlist full of your favorite songs, and welcome the dawn with open hearts. And when it’s about time for the sun to set, sway in the wind cooling with the dimming light, and dance your way to the night.

FYI: taking your dear one to a self-explored point in the city with the promise of the most dreamy views is going to steal her heart for you – no questions asked!

9. Touch the sky – fly in an air balloon

And never… ever… come back!

Sure, why not? Love is in the air, and it’s only fitting that you cherish yours flying above the clouds. So, drive some miles to the perfect place, rent a hot air balloon, and don’t you forget to capture the fairytale-y moments with a camera. Enjoy the height, enjoy the flight, and fall in love with each other over and over again!

10. Sail your date away – rent a row boat

And maybe catch some fish while you’re at it!

After the sky, it is only the lavish expanse of the sea that can beat the magic that you felt. You could go on a refreshing and thrilling cruise, but I’d suggest otherwise. Go for the more romantic row boats.  Oh! The joy of rowing the boats together and sailing wherever you want is just beyond compare! You can splash the water, talk all you want without any disturbance, and of course get lost in each other’s eyes!

11. Hit a park and fly a kite (or two!)

Kite ho! With the insane winds of the summers, outdoors is where all the fun calls out to you from. Plan yourself a little adventure by buying a kite and plenty more, if you’re not good at it, and you’ll find a bonding experience that you’ve never felt before.

I am a misfit software engineer who left her work in the corporate world to pursue the insatiable quest to write. A freelance worker by the day, I choose to dream with eyes open wide. I have conversations with myself where I talk of the possibilities that life can hold. Too many wishes made on empty starless nights ensure that there are various dreams yet to be lived. I am working my way as I am on a quest to find myself. The greatest journeys are indeed the ones that lie within. I am yet to live my story because right now, the book is full of too many apostrophes and too many commas. The words are jumbled until the right one fits the puzzle. I don't believe in perfection because too many times, it is imperfection which paints the perfect story. I am verbose and I aim at living life in full swing until a speed breaker curbs the tantalizing pace with which I wish to conquer the dreams that would otherwise be too big for the not-so-tiny shoes I wear. Blessed with a lot of chubby fat, I love going the extra mile to conquer my extra dreams with an extra advice after all, we all love a little extra. A die-hard shopaholic, you can often find me laughing on serious stuff inappropriately at wrong times (unintentionally).
