Here’s some dating advice from Cupid: For a special gift, enroll your significant other (and yourself) in a class that aligns with their interests. If they’ve been hinting at learning how to do the Downward Dog, search for a yoga studio in your area. If your partner’s favorite movie moment is Demi Moore’s pottery scene in Ghost, spend a few hours learning how to sculpt together and reenact the film. The two of you can create fun moments while aligning your interests.

If you’re a busier couple, review your planners and look for upcoming special events that could spark the desire for learning something new. For example, if your best friend’s wedding is approaching, take ballroom dance lessons. If a company dinner is on your agenda, then an etiquette or networking course could be fun to take. By combining your future obligations with an educational class, you’ll be ensuring that your hectic schedule is helping, not hindering, your time together.
