Looking for a romantic getaway in New England.... [more inside]
When my girl returns from a 6 week trip, I want to do something cool and quirky and romantic for her as a surprise. Nothing necessarily big and tacky or public and embarrassing. Any ideas? She doesn't like "objects" too much -- she's more of a road trip, beach night, indie-mix-cd kind of girl. We write a lot, so I don't want to do anything like that. I made her a CD for the flight there, so not that either. It could be a gift, or an experience. We do not live together. It doesn't have to be something immediately when she comes back. I just wanted to do something sweet that was a little more out of the ordinary for us. [more inside]
What part of Maui should we go to for a relaxed, romantic honeymoon? After a fair bit of research, we're thinking of renting a condo, probably on the West side, although even that's not firm. The question is which part of Maui? This thread has us leaning toward Napili or Kihei but since we've never been there before it all feels a bit like a shot in the dark, especially since condo rental sites like VRBO are so huge and confusing.

I'd like to date my best friend. We've known each other for four or five years, and hang out once or twice every couple of weeks. We're very close, and talk a lot on the phone or online. We both find each other attractive. So my question is, how do I best segue from this platonic relationship into a romantic one? If it goes badly, say if he tells me I've totally misinterpreted the tenor of our relationship, what can I do to patch things over? And - does anyone have any success stories? Thanks so much.
Have you ever performed a romantic-comedy-type grand gesture to win over a woman in real-life? If so, what was it and what were you thinking as you were planning/executing? [more inside]
I figured this crowd would have the answer bookmarked somewhere. There is a specific issue of a web comic that has the story of a guy, who after his first date with a girl, sends her an encrypted note for her to decrypt. They continue to date and despite her asking, he never gives her any decrypting hints. When she finally breaks the code, it's him asking her to marry him. I thought it was an XKCD comic, but I couldn't find it via Google searches, so perhaps it's another site. My last resort is to go thru each XKCD comic one by one, but if you know what I'm talking about please give me a heads up. Thanks.

I am looking to visit Cape May, NJ, with my longtime girlfriend.

Any advice about the weather and the sights in the area would be appreciated. I'm also open to suggestions about alternate destinations in the Philadelphia area. Thanks!
