There are many interesting stories behind relationships. So why, then, on a day dedicated to love, should celebrations be confined to a heart-shaped box?
This year, check out these not-so-conventional ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day with that special (or hope-to-be-special) someone.
As odd a way as it might seem to celebrate Valentine’s Day, climbing is actually a great way to forge — and strengthen — relationships, said gym owner Chris O’Connell.
To do it right takes cooperation, communication, and most importantly, trust, all cornerstones of any good union.
And a bonus for the first-time daters? Doing something adventurous is said to make you feel more attractive and also gets the adrenaline pumping.
The Boston Rock Gym, 78 Olympia Ave. in Woburn, has some special deals in case you’ve got that lovely feeling.
Two-for-one intro classes and day passes are available on Valentine’s Day from noon to 10 p.m. Introductory classes will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 6 to 9 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday.
Costs are $16 per couple for two-for-one day passes and $58 per couple for classes.
