Like most couples towards the end of the month, money is tight and date night goes to the back of our minds a bit. It is super difficult what with the money sitch, busy schedules and occasionally the lack of inspiration. But it’s so important to keep the passion and romance alive in any relationship, whether you’ve been together for 6 months, a year or twenty.
Recently we’ve decided to plan a weekly date night. We’re still trying to figure out the best night for us both but it means we get to spend some really good quality time together. It will also help with the whole digital detox as I spend so much time on my phone and laptop for my blogging.
Even though we’ll be planning a weekly date night, we won’t be in a position where we can always go “out”, never mind “out out”, but we can stay in our home (which is our favourite place to be anyway), and make each other a priority.
We close down our laptops, our phones, and maybe even the lights 😉 We make a nice dinner and just spend time together. We talk, we read, we potter in the back garden, we pull out a board game (we’re especially fond of Monopoly and Cards Against Humanity), we put a movie on Netflix, and we occasionally play fight (note: we do not do all of those things in one evening!). We’re sad and love spending time together, and when we pick a day of the week, we’ll intentionally spend time together without any other distractions!
Maybe you’ll pick up a few tips, and share a few of yours in the comments!
