New Year’s Eve has taken over from Valentine’s Day as the world’s most high-pressured and overpriced date night. During the early throes of a relationship, it is easy to expect to ring in 2014 with a midnight kiss from your new crush.
But perhaps you should start 2014 by marching to a different tune. Not doing the same thing for New Year’s Eve date night can open you up to new experiences, new people and new foods. Use your keen sense of adventure for dating . . . and yes, even on this special date night.
Think about foregoing the dress up dinner and champagne toast for a night of bowling, karaoke competition or even a personal countdown at the waterfront.
Be yourself and be comfortable of course, but you don’t have to play it so safe all the time (except with any activity with major vertical drops). Shed the monotony of watching the ball drop and consider shaking up your new year’s plans a bit.
Happy New Year!
