Having consistent time together is hard to come by. For us, weekly date nights renew us individually, and as a couple. Dates give us a chance to talk about everything and anything. Here are a few strategies that help us make date night happen:
2. Take Turns Planning: Have a plan. Knowing what you are doing in advance can save you from playing that last minute "what do you want to do?" "I don't know, what do you want to do?" game. You may have learned (like we did) that this approach rarely leads to a memorable date.
3. Reconnect: Date night is a time for positive conversation and interaction. It may not be the best time to analyze your relationship or have "tough" conversations. Rather, take time to rediscover your spouse, like you did before you got married. Ask questions. Really listen. Ask follow-up questions. Find out what your spouse is thinking, feeling, and dreaming. Laugh together. Have fun together.
