  • Imagine surprising your significant other by taking them to a local poetry reading at a cozy cafΓ© in Saint Petersburg. As you both sit close, sipping on your coffees, you both are entranced by the expressions of various poets. Words encapsulating love, life, and the depth of human experience resonate around you, creating an emotionally intimate environment. After the readings, engage in deep conversation about the poems and discuss what they meant to you personally. You might just find a fresh, poetic perspective on your relationship.
  • The evening is not over yet, surprise your love by presenting them a poem that you've written just for them. It could be about your feelings, an memorable experience you both shared, or perhaps even something inspired by Saint Petersburg and its rich culture. This surprise will create a profound emotional impact and enhance the warmth of your bond.
  • As the night lingers on, talk about your respective favorite poets and poetry books. Discover shared interests or explore unfamiliar poets that your partner loves. This leads to the sharing of more about individual and shared literary tastes, creating a wonderful environment of mutual understanding and appreciation of each other's abyss of depth.

Preparation steps:

  • Start by researching where and when local poetry readings are taking place in Saint Petersburg. Usually, local cafΓ©s or bookstores host such events. Do confirm if the reading is being done in a language both you and your partner understand. Choose a venue that complements your prefered aesthetic and mood for the evening, preferably a cozy, quiet place where you can hear and engage with the poetry.
  • In terms of transport, a good choice would be to take a local taxi or a stroll through the city if your chosen venue isn't too far. The walk will add a refreshing touch before the immersive poetic experience. Keep an eye on the weather though, and opt for a taxi if it's too windy or forecasted to rain.
  • The surprise poem for your partner should be written in advance. Don’t worry about mastery as this is not a test of your poetic prowess. It's an opportunity for you to express your heartfelt feelings through the written word. Present it at the end of the readings to conclude this wonderful and artistic evening.

  • In preparation for writing your poem, spend some time reading various types of poetry to get inspiration. Keep in mind it’s not so much about the complexity of the writing as it is about the thought and emotions behind it. Your partner will appreciate your efforts no matter what.
  • This entire date revolves around the element of surprise, so ensure your beloved does not get a whiff of it ahead of time. Keep the date location a surprise until you both arrive there. The unexpected poetry reading will definitely make for a memorable date!
