Cupid’s Advice: 

Making your partner feel special often is important for a relationship to last long-term. Use these dating tips when planning a romantic evening for your partner:

1. Light candles: Candles while they may seem “basic” or “average” actually really provide the perfect lighting for an intimate date night that isn’t as harsh as the bright overhead lights. They also let your partner know immediately the mood you are creating.

2. Drinks matter: A romantic evening calls for a more expensive drink selection for your partner. Take the time to find out their favorite wine or cocktail and go above and beyond to make sure every little aspect of the dinner caters to your partner’s desires.
