Danny and Sandy from Grease, Noah and Allie from The Notebook, and more recently, Jake and Amy from Brooklyn Nine-Nine show us the classic story of two people who are incredibly different but end up falling madly in love.

This means there are many things to discuss if this next phase in your relationship is on the horizon.
Fireworks, BBQ, and family reunions – the fourth of July is tomorrow and you may be scrambling for a date idea that knocks it out of the park! Since that last sentence nicely segue’s into my first date idea, without further adieu..
Raise your hand and say “I” if you’ve ever experienced an awkward moment on a first date? Guarantee, you just put up your hand, or at least cringed with the thought of your last groan inducing date moment. But that’s the beauty of first dates isn’t it? Both parties are excited, nervous and perhaps a little awkward. These are all the natural feels; don’t sweat it if you run into one or even two of these hiccups along the way.
