There is not a single soul who has not wanted a fairy tale romance and a Prince Charming who had all the quintessential qualities of a fairy tale hero. In short, everyone wants a life which is straight out of a romantic movie. Well, if that is so, why not take some ideas from some of the most amazing romantic movies and impress your loved one. Then, you can truly tell that your Valentine’s Day was as good as a movie.
Let’s talk about Hum Tum or Harry Met Sally. Of course a Karan or a Harry would seem to be a pestering idiot in the beginning, but as time passes, you are bound to be thrilled with some of the things they do for their respective lady loves. When you think about approaching someone for a date, take reference from Hum Tum when Karan sums up courage to tell Rhea how he exactly feels after a span of 10 years. But as they say, better late than never.
If your loved one is completely in love with classy stuff like opera and theatre, you must take a cue from Shakespeare in Love. Do you remember Dil Chahta Hain where Aamir Khan first realizes that he has fallen for Preity Zinta in the course of the opera? Well, love blossoms in all the odd places. When your loved one is in doubt, a little bit of opera might help.
When it comes to Valentine’ Day, a little bit splurge should not matter. Some fancy jewellery and a dinner reservation in any of the posh restaurants will make your girlfriend, wife or date happy. Want to know more about what women want? Pretty Woman will help you in this regard.
How about re-doing everything that you did for her on the first date again on Valentine’s Day? Take a cue from 50 First Dates where each day is a new beginning for Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler leaves no stone unturned to remind her of their moments together. Valentine’s Day is not a single day affair; it is all about how you feel about each other every day for the rest of your life.
Write a beautiful love letter or better a love email just like Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan in You’ve Got Mail. Revive the art of communication and compose a short text or a short email for your loved one. It will be indeed a thoughtful gesture. Let your words speak for you.
And those who are planning to get hitched, pop the question on Valentine’s Day. For reference, you can always look at Runaway Bride.
