    that’s a long list… for those who are lost or didn’t plan it yet…

  2. Nadine Kahil February 12, 2011

    is bice romantic?

  3. Rita D. February 12, 2011

    although it’s a very nice venue, i personally don’t think it’s romantic…
    there are a lot of great restaurants but they are not on this list because they do not provide the “romantic” ambiance that people are seeking for this occasion.

    La Parilla. This is one of the best romantic places. Impressive

    @unknown, i agree they are expensive, but this is due to the price inflation that occurs during Valentine’s Day, and in reality all nice restaurants are priced as such.
    During ordinary days, these restaurants are priced at an average of 70-80 USD per person, which has become the standard price for most fine dining restaurants in the country.

  7. [...] From a traditional viewpoint, women were always supposed to be viewed as the goddess and care-giver who deserves respect to the fullest degree. This is very much agreeable but the scriptures and epics indirectly indicate one rule, women have to remain chaste to deserve this unrestrained  respect. By chaste, I leave it to the reader to understand its meaning in the pre-marriage and post-marriage context So, now we come to the most interesting part. In this viewpoint, women have to make sure they keep the(ir) men in control. To put it in simple worlds, men can see, hear, talk but never touch! This is in contrast to the western ways where men see, hear, talk, touch and do much more than that to completely feel satisfied to their fullest extent ;) even though, how much ever you have, you never feel satisfied and its a fact. You can disagree with me but nature has its way Women in these countries don’t feel bad about this, in fact the whole society is very much aware and it is seen as a norm. In a way, guys get what they want in the shortest period of time ( in most cases). I won’t say that there is not much romance involved but its role is slightly different, men have to be romantic and show they are rich, sophisticated and worthy, all in one shot. In theory, this might look tough but I know that there are man tips available in the internet that might be useful All this happens in a  date and they go places from there , if she feels that he is good enough;) Therefore, as per Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, all of man’s physiological needs are satisfied with this final act. Some people call it love, some may see it as lust, whatever it is, the main event is the same! Image Credits: [...]
