Create a “date night” with your sweetheart. Select a nice restaurant and plan to pick up your sweetheart directly from work. Include a leisurely ride home.
Implementation of the evening is key.
Most couples talk on the phone during the day. When you see your sweetheart’s number on caller ID, answer the phone:
“Yes, Mr. or Ms. President. The transportation is in place and you’ll be picked up at 5. The restaurant is expecting us. Afterwards I’ll personally see you home.”
At first, your sweetheart might wonder if you thought someone else was calling. Keep playing along as if you really were talking with the President. Carry forward the plan. It could be the start of a fun evening.
