6 Go ice skating.
Imagine this: a young girl steps awkwardly onto the ice. The boy takes her hand and they glide together. Suddenly, the girl stumbles and the boy tries to catch her. But in the end, they both land on their butts and explode in fits of laughter. How's that for the beginning of a romantic comedy? It could be your story too if you just give ice skating a try!
