Your honeybunch’s heart is always aflutter and it doesn’t take much – a love song, a sad film or even a shamelessly sentimental advert – before they shed a tear.
Date ideas: Find something to make your old softie’s heart melt. Perhaps a tragic musical about a hideously deformed composer and his unrequited love? Or a strangely sweet musical where the grim reaper falling in love while collecting souls? Either should do the job nicely. You can also woo your boo at a concert featuring the most romantic film scores of all time, or let the smooth music of Marvin Gaye help you get it on. Several other performers – including a French-American jazz singer, a quirky Canadian indie-pop duo and a pair of Strictly pro dancers – are sure to remind your darling that they’re with the one person they’ve been dreaming about all their life – you!
