Make Date Night Happen

Wake up, eat breakfast, get the kids ready, drive to work, drive home from work, eat dinner, go to bed and repeat. Does this sound familiar? We all get wrapped in the day-to-day that we sometimes forget to take care of ourselves and our relationship. Honestly, when was the last time you and your partner had a date night? Was it a month ago, a week ago, or a year ago? However long it was, it is vital to have a regular date night with your partner. Why? Studies show couples that have a regular date night are happier and more likely to stay together long-term. How great is that?

We know it can be a struggle to get regular dates on the books, so we have a few tips for you!

Schedule:

We know this is a less than romantic approach for some, but sometimes we need to commit to a regular schedule when it comes to dates. Pick a date once a week, every other week or once a month that works for you and your partner. Set the date in stone by booking a babysitter, making reservations and putting it in your google calendar.

Switch off:

If scheduling is a little less than spontaneous for your liking, have you and your partner come up with a list of things you would like to do and put each event on its own piece of paper and place in a jar. When you and your partner want to go out on a date, easily choose one from the jar. This way you pre-plan dates, and it adds a bit of fun to planning dates!

Be creative:

Schedules don’t work for you, nor does switching on and off. We get it, you and your partner may be building businesses, in school and work 80+ hours a week, we understand there are times in life when work, raising kids, or going school may take more time. This one calls for a bit of creativity. Plan a special night in by making your favorite dinner together, put on a movie or play a game. Date nights don’t have to be extravagant or cost a lot of money. It is about spending quality time with your partner, just the two of you.

Having a regular date nights will help you and your partner connect and continue to grow together as a couple.  It’s vitally important to your relationship.
