4 Romantic Ways to Enjoy The Supermoon With Your SO
If you're a hopeless romantic like myself, and you just so happen to be in pursuit of a new way to show off your love and affection, all you have to do is look up.
Tonight, I encourage lovers all over the world to take full advantage of this month's breathtaking supermoon.
The rare view will leave you gazing at the planetary satellite as it appears up to 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than on a normal day, and it's one you should make the most of.
While November 13 was announced as a prime time to catch the supermoon, don't fret. The differences between appearance on Sunday and Monday night are very minimal, and casual observers like us will hardly notice if it's looking any less super when it's high in the dark sky.
On that note, take this as the perfect opportunity to snuggle up next to your SO, casual bae or first-time date, and make the most of this nighttime scene.
Below, four ways to get real romantic, courtesy of the supermoon:
1. Pitch a tent on your apartment's roof.
I've lived in my apartment building for years, but have yet to make use of the ample-sized roof it has.
Don't make the same mistake. Take advantage of this oddly warm November weather and stargaze from the comfort of your own home.
If you're feeling extra outdoorsy, get into full camp-mode and make a whole night out of it.
This is a solid excuse to get all cuddly with bae, plus an opportunity to have sex outside. It's a win-win situation for all parties involved.
2. Cozy up with some drinks on an enclosed bar terrace.
Mondays are rough on just about everyone, so allow supermoon's presence to drag you to a five-star bar in order get rid of those lingering Sunday Scaries.
Take your pick of any spot with an outdoor terrace, equipped with lounge chairs, quality service and maybe some heat lamps, and you'll find yourself in a prime spot to soak up the moonlight with your man or woman of choice.
(Hot toddies encouraged, but not mandatory.)
3. Stretch your legs with a quality stroll.
You may not be blessed enough to live in walking distance of Central Park, but that doesn't mean you can't take full advantage of the outdoors and what your surrounding area has to offer.
Use the supermoon as a chance to escape work and just walk aimlessly with no real direction or goal in mind.
You can never go wrong with some quality time together to show you care AND that you enjoy listening to whatever your partner has to say, as long strolls merit long conversations.
Did I mention this option is totally free?!
4. Head to a dock and rock the boat.
Explore uncharted waters (well, you can at least pretend) and soak in the moon's rays from the middle of a body of water.
Whether you rent a small yacht, paddle out in a canoe or board a party cruise, make use of the aquatic setting and all that swayin' to show how much of a catch you truly are.
And just remember: You can attend all the boring dinners you want, but you won't be able to get this close and personal with the moon again until 2034. Do you really want to pass this up?
I didn't think so.
