The answerers that are saying to wear perfume are pulling your chain! Do not do that...the sweet smell ATTRACTS the bugs. Buy a real bug spray with 30% Deet or more, none of that wimpy stuff. Warning...it tastes bad, so it puts some limits on the romantic activities if you catch my drift. As far as your tent goes, you can buy an insect fog. You spray it around the campsite and it will reduce the insects for several hours or more, depending on the product. Remember, you get what you pay for, too. Citronella candles also help, but don't use IN your tent. Burn holes are little bug private entrances. Don't spray your tent with the bug spray. It weakens the water resistancy. You can, however spray a 2 foot perimeter around your tent with an outdoor insect spray (like you'd use around your home). Bugs don't like that stuff and will generally not cross it if avoidable. You will, however, have to swallow the idea that you are going to be living in the bugs' domain for an evening, so expect to have some encounters. None of them will kill you. Maybe cause an itch. More of a pain in the rear than anything. Try to focus on your boyfriend's birthday. Look up at the stars. Enjoy the cool night air. You might just surprise yourself. Good luck and enjoy your camping trip.
