It’s interesting how people find no fault with a movie, but fail to embrace it practically into their lives. Are we not depriving our relationships of some good and sweet things?

Touring popular sites that you haven’t been to as a couple

There are those popular places in and around Harare that you may not have been to as a couple. Longcheng Plaza, Harare International Airport, Sam Levy’s Village and Avondale Shopping Centre are among some of the popular places in Harare. Taking your partner to places like these, buy some ice creams and refreshments as you walk around doing some window shopping and trying clothes on would be really fun and would not cost you anything more than ten dollars from your pocket.

Relax in the comfort of your home

For some home cannot be regarded as ideal place for a date but then a date according to Wiktionary is “A romantic meeting or outing………..” According to that definition, irrespective of where you meet with your lover or potential lover as long as it’s a planned romantic meeting that’s a date.

So then if you are to choose a home date there’s need for some good planning, it doesn’t have to look like an ordinary visit. Selecting a good  movie to watch together and cooking are some of the activities the two of you can do or even taking a walk around your neighborhood.
