How many times have you heard women complain that men aren’t romantic anymore? The bad thing about that is that it isn’t entirely false. Plenty of men have forgotten the traditional methods of trying to woo women and are simply relying on played out pickup line and sleazy compliments in hopes that women will give them the time of day. Relying on this method of dating usually backfires on us as women are becoming bored with the same old routine from men. If you really want to make yourself stand out from the other typical guys, set up an evening picnic, which will be sure to impress her and make her realize that you have something that other guys are clearly missing.
Pick Your Space
When you decide to have a picnic, location should be the first thing on your mind. If the two of you aren’t very familiar with each other, you’ll want to pick a space that is fairly public. Do not try to have a picnic in a secluded area with her, as it won’t turn out well. She may think you’re just trying to get laid, or worse, she may think you’re a dangerous predator. Make sure you speak with her about the location first and that she is totally okay with it.
While you may want to opt for somewhere public to make sure she feels safe, you’ll want to avoid picking a space that has too many people tracking through it. You don’t want noisy children or animals running around you and ruining your date. Try to find a spot that both offers the two of you some privacy and makes her feel comfortable that other people are nearby.
Pack You Basket
When you’re packing your picnic basket, you’ll want to include things like blanket, napkins, and eating utensils. The food you choose is up to you, but we recommend not packing anything that can spoil if it isn’t kept cool. You don’t want your date to end up with food poisoning. If there is something that you just have to bring that must stay cool, remember to pack a cooler with ice and occasionally check on it to make sure that it’s still cold before the two of you eat it.
To add an extremely romantic element that she’s sure to enjoy, make sure to throw in some mason jars with tea candles inside them. You can light the candles and set them all around you to bring in a bit of fantasy to your date. This works when the sun has gone down, so make sure not to start your picnic too early.
