Kisses and Flicks
Story by Astrid Perez
For those of you with a special person in your life, the first few days of February are filled with anticipation towards the most romantic day of the year: Valentine’s Day. For days you spend countless hours searching for the perfect gift, ordering flowers, watching Youtube videos on how to make the perfect chocolate covered strawberries and planning the most picturesque date night. But before you know it, Valentine’s Day has come and gone and all you’re left with is the 130 likes you got on your Valentine’s Day date night Instagram post, leftover heart-shaped candies and flowers that dried up because you forgot to put them in water.
Don’t let the excitement of love die after the 14. Rather than restricting yourself to one day out of the year for romance, celebrate your relationship all year long. Treating your boyfriend or girlfriend to a special night doesn't always mean you have to spend tons of money. So forget about the expensive bars, restaurants and trips. Instead, gather your favorite snacks, pillows and blankets to enjoy a Netflix date night. With thousands of titles, it's easy to become restless trying to choose a movie.
Lucky for you, here are a few suggestions for your next date.
