From reliving old times to going for a romantic stroll to going on a food adventure, here are a few tips to help you make Valentine’s Day, which falls on February 14, perfect for you and your loved one.

Sumesh Menon, co-founder and CEO of dating app Woo, has shared some ideas to make your date special:

Recall good old memories

Recreate the fuzzy old memories of your relationship - whether it was the first movie you saw together, the restaurant where you discovered your spark for the first time, or the first vacation you took, take a trip down memory lane and relive the fun.

Brunch

For a first date though, why not suggest brunch instead of dinner? (Shutterstock)

Dining together is a tried-and-tested, enjoyable way to get to know someone new. For a first date though, why not suggest brunch instead of dinner? A weekend brunch has a much more casual and easy going vibe, and it can happily segue into sundowner drinks if things go well.

Walking

The great thing about this date is that it’s a perfect conversation opportunity, giving you a quiet, private space to get to know each other.

Stand-up comedy

Another ultimate key to your date’s heart is not an expensive meal, or a bunch of flowers upon arrival. It’s making them laugh. Laughing together is the absolute best thing to happen on a date - so make that task infinitely easier by taking your date to see some live comedy.

Try new cuisine

Choose a new, exotic cuisine that neither of you has had before. Not only does it show that you’re on top of the latest food trends, it’s also a lot of fun and a date which allows for lots of conversation -- even if it’s just about the new food you’re trying.
