Love Bytes: The best of things to do in twos
This is one of the best times in the year to spot celestial bodies like planets and constellations. So make the most of it while you can
Here's a fully filmy date idea
It's almost that time of the year again when film buffs get into furious debate about which movies deserve to win an Oscar. Will Once Upon a Time in Hollywood win the Best Picture award, or will it be The Irishman? Should Joaquin Phoenix get a prize for his depiction of Joker? Or should Jonathan Pryce tip him for his role in The Two Popes? These are some questions that aficionados are asking. You don't have to join them in the debate if you're not fanatic about films. But you still can't deny that watching a film with your loved one is a classic romantic move. So take your partner out to watch three Oscar-nominated films — Bohemian Rhapsody, The Lion King and La La Land.

Life's a song and dance when in love
There are countless romances that have started on the dance floor. The connection you feel while dancing with someone is special. So take your beloved to a workshop where an instructor will teach you the basics of jiving. It's a style that African-Americans created in the US in the 1930s. Now, you too can practise it right here in the city, in Bandra.
