  • There's nothing like a surprise to break up the usual routine. Scope out the office facilities ahead of time, and on the appointed day, sneak into the office kitchen with your homemade meal all packed and ready to go. Set up a private corner for the two of you if possible, so you can enjoy your lunch in relative peace.
  • When your partner comes in for lunch, they'll be thrilled with the surprise. Put down some flowers and candles, and you've instantly transformed their otherwise bland office lunch into a romantic date. Don't forget to take into account your partner's likes and office rules when planning this surprise.
  • The element of surprise and the effort put into preparing for this lunch will surely make your partner feel loved and appreciated. End your lunch date with a mini dessert to sweeten the rest of your partner's workday.

Preparation steps:

  • Preparing for this date will need some thoughtful planning. First, you need to cook a meal at home that both of you will enjoy. Choose something that is easy to carry and won't create a mess in your partner's office. You also need to get some flowers and candles to set the mood.
  • Before the date, you need to find out your partner's break schedule from work, so you can arrive just in time to surprise them. Also, confirm from your partner indirectly about the office rules regarding bringing outside food.
  • Pack the meal in a nice lunch box and bring a tablecloth too, as this will add to the romantic atmosphere. Also pack utensils, napkins and some bottled water or juice.

Some tips:

  • Always respect the office environment and ensure your visit does not interrupt your partner's work or colleagues. Keep your visit low-key and only stay for the lunch break.
  • Fit the meal to your partner's preferences and dietary restrictions. If you are not confident in your cooking skills, you can also consider ordering a meal from your partner's favorite restaurant.
  • Make sure you clean up after the lunch date. Leaving a mess might make your partner feel embarrassed and could also create problems for them at work.
