Why isn't every date as special as a Valentine’s Day date?

DH Vancouver Staff Feb 14, 2016 12:47 pm

Why is it that we tend to put extra effort into planning a special date night only on a few specific days of the year? That extra effort would go a long way if it happened consistently, which is why Valentine’s Day shouldn’t be the only day we plan an extraordinary date.

We shouldn’t need a commercial prompt for us to do something special, on a specific day of the year when everyone else is told to do the same. Did you ever stop to think that considering everyone plans something special for Valentine’s Day, your efforts automatically become minimized? Your extravagant plans seem a lot less special when everybody else is doing it for the exact same reason.

What’s really special is when you plan a SuperDate for no reason at all. Just because.


When it comes to romance and phenomenal date nights, the majority of the focus is on February 14. The result? We’ve lost out on similar opportunities in those other 364 days of the year. Let’s not hype up one day only to then go through the rest of the days of the year on auto-pilot, never again coming up with an excuse to go on an exceptional date.

You don’t need an excuse like Valentine’s Day to go on a SuperDate, in fact the more you go on, the more fulfilling and memorable your life will be.

The moments in life that we remember, cherish and hold on to are those that are spontaneous and exciting. It’s those experiences that we’ll remember for a lifetime – so why aren’t we experiencing more of this?

Remember, any day can be just as special and exciting as Valentine’s Day.

In honour of the other 364 days of the year when people tend to miss out on extravagant date nights, SuperDate is giving away four dream dates that will take place on any day of your choice other than February 14. Take that, Valentine’s Day!

We’re giving away one awesome date in each category: cultural, dining, active and casual.

We’ll cover your transportation, so take the leap in Maple Ridge on this thrilling day date. Enter now

4. Casual: Seasons Festival 5-Day Wristband for two

From March 23 to 27, Seasons Festival is offering for the second year in a row the ability to attend every single event across the city within the five days through their all-inclusive weeklong wristband.
