Non-conventional/typical/predictable Valentines ideas? watch

    Ok so my girlfriends not the typical ''ooh I love flowers and chocolates and romantic meals by candelight'' sort of girl.
    I've got Sunday off work to do something with her but not quite sure what to do. She really doesn't want to do something boring and predictable. And wouldn't want me to spend much money on it. Just wants to 'hang out' and spend time together... but not like sitting at home doing nothing...
    She says she 'hates valentine's day' but I'm still pretty sure she wants to do something with me.

    - I have a car with sat-nav
    - I have money
    - We have all day
    - I'm open to do anything
    - Has to be something not most people do
    - Can't be too extravagant or pathetically romantic

    All I can think of is going to the seaside.. but it'd only be good if it was sunny and I live about 80 miles from the nearest coast... which is probably Southend :|
    And I've never driven on a motorway before...

    I'm sure whatever we do I could fit in going to a restaurant for lunch or dinner but what else could we do??

    How about a fun but slightly unusual activity like horse-riding or ice-skating? Bit different to what you'd do on an average day, you'd get to spend time together and it wouldn't be too cheesey. Or you could opt for something a bit tamer like the cinema or theatre. Then you could go for lunch/dinner afterwards

    This. If you like the outdoors and it's sunny, it's a great way to spend a day in the hills but there's plenty in cities too! For a city, you might want to try a multicache? Have a browse of the website and if you have questions, feel free to pm me.

    If she says she hates Valentine's Day then she probably hates Valentine's Day and doesn't want to celebrate it.

    Book a go-karting session. If doesn't want to go, I will.

    With sat nav? How about you man up for her and use a map.

    Book a lesson doing something adventurous eg Kite surfing, paragliding, zorbing.
    I would love for my boyfriend to do this for me.

    My partner and I have much the same issue in that we both don't think Valentine's Day is a big deal, but equally we can't face the "wait, where's your partner?" sympathy interrogations from well-meaning friends. Plus we spend most weekends together anyway. So as a compromise, we're staying in, making tiramisu together, having a lot of sex and avoiding having to do anything lovey-dovey whatsoever.

    Do a poo on her.

    On a more serious note, why not just go on a road trip? Just drive

    pretend that you are going to sell her in exchange for a goat at your local farm.

    that would be 'unconventional'
