It may be a many-splendored thing. It may be all we need. It may be patient and kind, and any number of beautiful things lovers and poets have observed over the years. But also? Love in all its forms — whether we’re talking about finding it, keeping it or getting over it — seems different now, in the Age of Tinder and Free Porn.

And yet some things never change: We still want to connect, we still want to be swept off our feet, we still want the butterflies. Despite our wildly busy, often unromantic daily lives, finding love — and keeping the flame alive — is still a worth-it endeavor.

So here you’ll find 75 ways to do just that. We’ve rounded up the best, most magical dates to go on with your new crush or your old flame or that stranger you just met on Match.com.
