Being the largest city in Wisconsin has its perks. Milwaukee always has something to offer for everyone, especially when it comes to date night. Milwaukee is home to some of Wisconsin's best restaurants and choosing one can be quite a challenge since there are so many. I've narrowed down some of the best places to eat with your lover this Valentine's Day whether you want to dress up or dress down in the beautiful city of Milwaukee.

1. Screaming Tuna

Calling all sushi lovers. Screaming Tuna offers all types of sushi, steak, and seafood along with beautiful views of downtown Milwaukee. You and your Valentine are bound to have a great time chowing down on surf and turfs.

2. BelAir Cantina

BelAir is a staple for any person who lives in Milwaukee. They offer a twist on Mexican food with an LA food truck type of vibe according to them. So if you and your date are looking for a "not so fancy" place to eat at on Valentine's Day, BelAir Cantina is perfect for you.

3. Lakefront Brewery

Lakefront Brewery is on the Milwaukee River, so it really gives off a romantic vibe right away. If you or your lover is a beer fan, Lakefront Brewery offers many different types of brews along with great food.

4. Sprecher's Restaurant and Pub

Sprecher's is famously known around Wisconsin for their root beer, other craft sodas, and beers. Their restaurant is in the heart of Bayshore Town Center which is an outdoor mall, so if you want to bear going out in the cold, you can also get some shopping in before you sit down and enjoy a meal and a drink at Sprecher's.

5. Leon's Frozen Custard

Leon's is a staple to anyone that lives or is from Milwaukee. They not only offer the world's finest custard, but they also offer some amazing greasy fast food if you two are looking for a quick and easy date before you head off to the movies on Valentine's Day.

6. Purple Door Ice Cream

If you or your date don't feel like doing dinner for V-Day, try an ice cream date. I know it's usually below freezing down here in Milwaukee during February, but if you're like me, ice cream is good all year round. Purple Door offers flavors everyone loves like mint chip and milk chocolate. But what makes Purple Door unique is their out of the ordinary flavors like beer and pretzels and balsamic vinegar.

7. The Laughing Taco

The Laughing Taco is no everyday taco place. They use local ingredients so the food really gives the food a homemade taste. They even have spiked slushies! You can't get better than that.

8. Harbor House

If you're really looking to surprise your date with a romantic dinner, Harbor House is the location for you. It's on the coast of Lake Michigan and provides amazing views of Milwaukee's skyline as well. They offer many upscale dishes such as seafood, steak and pasta. The views alone are worth the trip to this restaurant.

When You're Dating A First Responder, Sacrifice Is Something You Have To Respect

It is his career and I respect that 100%.

I have heard all kinds of stories about women whose boyfriends/husbands are firefighters that died in the line of duty. One that always surprises me is when they get angry with their significant other for not considering them or their families when on the job.

As the girlfriend of a firefighter, I 100% disagree with how those women feel and here's why.

My boyfriend has been a firefighter for about a year and a half now and has known that it would be his career since we started dating as seniors in high school. Before he even started working for a department, I was constantly nervous about how I would feel when he was out on calls. Would I ever get over the anxiety of the possibility of him losing his life and putting it at risk with every call?

When he did finally get on a department, I was extremely nervous for the first six months or so. Then something hit me. This career was his decision. He encouraged me to attend a school six hours away from home and said doing long distance would be ok and we'd make it work. While that's not the same as running into burning buildings, he always supports me with everything I do.

Running into burning buildings, standing on the side of busy roads and climbing dangerous ladders is what he chose to do for a living. It's his calling, his way of finding his place in the world. He trains harder than anyone I've ever met and is currently studying extremely hard to become a paramedic. Saving people's lives is in his blood.

If he gives up his life to save someone else's, I will not be angry or upset. I will be proud. If I have to go to his funeral, I will be surrounded by his brothers for support and my children will know their dad was a hero. In my eyes, regardless of if he's driving the engine, working the hose or running into those houses, he is a hero. Every time the tones drop, I no longer feel anxiety. I feel a sense of pride knowing that he is there for people in their worst moments. He's the beacon of light at the end of the tunnel, the literal saving grace.

There is nothing in this world that makes me prouder of my firefighter boyfriend than the selfless job he chose. I chose him because of that selflessness and I will never regret that, regardless of the fact that he may lose his life for someone else.

To The Boy Who Loves Me Next, You're Allowed To Leave Me

And I am not scared of it happening anymore.

"To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable." -C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

I used to, in the past, fall for people because they made me feel like it was safe to.

The guy who brought me flowers on the first date, told me he would follow me anywhere a week and a half after meeting me, and blew hundreds of dollars to impress me, seemed like the right option. I was so proud of myself for ending the cycle of going for the "wrong guy." I ignored all of the red flags because he was a comfortable, safe choice. If he was that emotionally connected to me, I should like him. I chose to pursue him over a guy I had feelings for at the time because I felt like it was the "right" choice to be with the "good guy." It didn't matter that I felt nothing when he kissed me, that we had nothing in common, and that I truly was not okay with some of his life decisions. It didn't matter that he treated me horribly, because as long as I felt like he was loyal to me, needed me, and wouldn't leave me, I didn't care what happened within those parameters. I fell for security, or the illusion of security. I didn't fall for a person.

The biggest fear I had was if I let my guard down for somebody, that they would walk away. I couldn't have known that choosing security, choosing the person I didn't think would walk away, would carry me right into the most toxic and suffocating relationship possible — one that drained all of the life force out of me and actually never ended up making me feel any positive feelings. He mistreated me over and over, leaving permanent scars on my heart that I'm not sure will ever fully heal. But I felt like I had invested too much emotion already. Opening my heart up was the most difficult thing I had done, and I didn't think I could ever do it again after the immense failure I felt had come from that relationship. So, it was better to be safe with the devil I knew than the devil I didn't.

Eventually, though, the hurt came. He did leave, and it felt like he had taken everything from me but my ability to feel pain. Despite me choosing the safest route I could possibly find, I still was left totally devastated. But I wasn't devastated over losing him. I was devastated over losing my security.

This, unfortunately, is the caveat of love. If you can manage to fall for someone when they fall for you, you are very lucky. But you will never have that guarantee. Somebody could promise you on their lives that they will never leave, they will never lose interest, that they will be the one in your life who doesn't hurt you, but they still don't owe you anything. You could be with somebody for years and years and they could wake up one day and decide that they don't love you anymore. In a healthy relationship, the person you're with needs to feel like they have this freedom, and you need to be comfortable with them having it.

We have to be strong enough to be okay with this harsh truth. There are no guarantees in love, or in life. It is devastating to fall for somebody and to lose them. But the solution to this is not to avoid falling for people — the solution is to accept that you might lose them. But you must love them despite that.

You must love despite the risk because it is selfish to love somebody only when they have proven to be a low-risk investment for you.

You must love despite the risk because love is not rooted in codependency and safety.

You must love despite the risk because that is the only way you will ever be able to experience the deeply satisfying feeling of being vulnerable with somebody with absolutely no expectations of them, knowing what you're risking and doing it anyway, throwing caution to the wind- and for them to return it.

You must love despite the risk because everybody you love will eventually be taken away from you. Permanence in love simply does not exist.

You must love despite the risk because you are strong enough to.
