I believe having a date night every so often is SUPER important for couples. Between work, kids, and life in general, it's easy to let the romance slip and spend less time together.
Date night let's you put all that aside. Or, it gives you time to at least talk about all the things you don't have time to talk about.
However, dinner and a movie can get a little stale. I find that my wife and I often get bored doing the same old thing.
Reddit came up with a list of things you could do to mix up your date night that are super simple. For example:
- An impromptu road trip - One woman’s favorite unusual date was when her boyfriend woke her up at three in the morning to hit the road on a spur-of-the-moment road trip to a resort town to get breakfast. They ate, watched the sunrise and came home and the surprise factor made it so special.
- Spontaneous star-gazing - Heading to a playground to lay on the slides and stare at the stars while listening to music was the simple, but unexpected date one woman loved.
- Bargain hunting - A first date took one Redditor to a massive antique/thrift store, where they had fun poking around and cracking jokes about some of the silly stuff they found.
