3. Blackfriars Bridge- Infernal Devices
Time away from your loved one may seem like an eternity. Life would lose color, music its noise, and beauty its passion, but the small moments when you see them again makes life regain all it has lost. Loss is a sad component of love, and despair comes soon after but it need not last forever. Like with Jem and Tessa, life’s chaos split them apart and set them on different paths through life, but till they loved each other. Dates from books can be rather simple. They decided to visit each other once a year on the Blackfriars Bridge and talk. A simple act, but one with much importance when it is all they can do. If you and your significant each other are separated by distance, no matter how large, try to imitate this date. The best way to show your partner their importance to you is sometimes not with grand gestures, but small, consistent ones. Show them that no matter the tempests that life throws between the two of you, they still remain part of you. Choose a location that holds significant meaning to the both of you and just enjoy each other’s company.
4. Carriage Rides- Jane Austen
Carriages may be out of date, but many dates can be romantic in cars. In Emma, a common discussion over a carriage ride led to a discovery of feelings. In the same way, when you and your partner are in a car, a simple discussion regarding your peers can also lead to a discovery of feelings. The most important thing that led to this, however, was a seemingly detachment from the conversation. What you should take from this is to relax when discussing. Let the conversation bend and turn itself on its own in order for it to uncover the feelings between the two of you, if any is there to be discovered.
