Let's face it, in an age of Tinder, Instagram, Stashing, Ghosting, Zombie-ing, Haunting, Benching, Catching & Releasing, Breadcrumbing, Sidebarring, Cushioning, Catfishing, Kittenfishing, Slow-fading, and Marleying it is a surprise anyone even remembers the definition for romance. If you are willing to give up your metaphorical place in the gene pool; sit back on YouPorn and this article is not for you,

On the other hand if you do not want your genes behind discarded in the historical dustbin along with the dodos. Yes a pool, gene pool or otherwise is no place for a dodo or any other type of poultry. Despite the nine billion people on the planet if you want your genealogy to survive you should be getting on with thinking "It's Cuffing season I need to be on my A-game" and this is the article for you.

These are our recommendations for date night ideas that will help you breathe new life in to your relationship and help your genes live on. If this article births a baby please don't call it Forbidden London Baby,
