It’s almost time for the day of LOVE... which means in addition to Cupid’s arrows, we also have a lot of expectations flying around about what to do with our significant other this Valentine's Day.


Spice up your Valentine's Day with these Enneagram Date Ideas

With Valentine's Day coming up, I created a helpful guide for planning the perfect date based on your partner's Enneagram type. To gather some ideas I asked my Instagram followers for their suggestions and here are a few of my favorite recommendations for each type: 

Enneagram Type 1 Date Ideas

The consensus among Type 1s is they don't want to plan it! However, they're still going to want it a certain way. So maybe ask them what their expectations are, but do the detailed planning (reservations, gifts, etc.) on your own so they don't have to worry about logistics.


Enneagram Type 2 Date Ideas

Safe to say that quality time is the best place to focus your energy this Valentine's Day. ♥️ It's definitely the way to a Type 2's heart. 

Enneagram Type 3 Date Ideas

From the responses I got on Instagram, it seems like 3s have a wide variety of ideal dates. But the majority have this in common: they want to do something and they want it to bring enjoyment and fun.


Enneagram Type 4 Date Ideas

If there's one consistent thing about Type 4s, it's authenticity. Plan a date that is unique and true to them, whether that be an aura reading, painting each other, or a room full of candles.


Enneagram Type 5 Date Ideas

A good bet for a Type 5 is to do something intimate (no crowds please) AND engage the intellect.

Enneagram Type 6 Date Ideas

A lot of responses for Type 6 asked for "No surprises." They like to have a plan and feel secure. It's not that 6s don't want to be spontaneous; they just need a roadmap for that spontaneity so they can feel safe to relax and have a good time.

Enneagram Type 7 Date Ideas

There were SO many interesting date ideas from our bright & lively 7s. Make sure to make the day feel special and cater to their sense of FUN! Make a memory together.

Enneagram Type 8 Date Ideas

Intentional, quality time is the key to a meaningful Valentine's Day with your Type 8. Put the phone away and really listen to each other.

Enneagram Type 9 Date Ideas

Some keywords for Type 9s: low key, cozy, and home. If you're going to do a fancy dinner, try picking a day that's NOT February 14th. That way, you can avoid the crowds, and enjoy a more peaceful experience together.
