We went to a lake with a lot of rocks, sat on a blanket and looked at the stars. 

That may have been the most unique date I’ve had. Not great, right? 

Thanks to one of those awesome calendars that tells you what month it is, I know that next month is February. 

Oops, I mean, next month is Creative Romance Month. Gee, sure glad someone picked that out. You know, in addition to Black History Month and National Wear Red Day for women’s heart health awareness. It’s also North Carolina Sweet Potato month, in case you were curious.

As we all know, February is also Valentine’s Day month. In honor of the Creative Romance part, maybe this year we should skip the expensive dinner and demand men come up with something unique. 

Apparently, to show her you really love her, you should go to White Castle, where on Valentine’s Day they’ll give you a candlelight dinner and flowers. 

Not your thing? Well Raleigh’s Segway tour operators have added a new tour just for Valentine’s Day. 

This past weekend Lake Michie had a moonlight canoe tour, according to Ginny  From the Blog. Not sure if they’re doing anything special for V-day, but maybe you could set it up for the right price. 

If you’re single, you might give speed dating a try — on a BUS!
