Keep the Magic Alive With Date Night

When you've been with the same person for a while, things are taken to a whole other level. Things can go from spicy and exhilarating to comfy and uneventful. Guys are probably fine with no longer having to go out of their way to impress you, but women get sad that things aren't as special anymore.

If you're feeling like things are boring or dull, you've got to try harder to make your relationship exciting again. It's time to introduce "Date Night." Both of you can agree on one night a week where you go out to dinner or order in, rent a movie, go to a show, play a board game, take a bath together, go for a long walk, make love for hours - or whatever you guys want to do.

The only rule is that you both have to commit to devoting this one day to one another, no making excuses. "Date Night" is a great way to guarantee some special time together and it gives you something to look forward to each week!

Few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I had a date night. It was the first date we went on to the same restaurant and went to see a movie after. :) it was cute.

We always have date night without fail!!!!! It's the difference between being a married couple and being a madly in love married couple!!!!!! My husband has never called me his wife,,,,after 17 years I'm still his "bride".

My husband and I need to start doing this once we get more financially situated. Between running around with my son and going to night school, sometimes I forget what it's like to enjoy a nice, calming and romantic dinner. *sigh*

The man and I have the hardest time sticking to date night. We're both in school, super-involved, and it's just tough.However, this is making me rethink this priority; in fact, I just set up a date night for this Sunday. I'm excited!

My BF and I tried this but our outside commitments made it impossible to pick one night and stick to it. I have found that since we don't have TV we spend a lot more quality time together than I used to with boyfriends when I did have TV. We're always doing something fun together in the evenings!

I love date nights! I've started baking again, and it's something my boyfriend likes to do too, so we take a day and make cookies (which usually get eaten by his room mates).

Nah, lots of people haven't done the traditional dating thing Pumpkin Queen. The hubby and I met through Residential Life as RAs, so we didn't have time for the "usual" dates. Date Night doesn't necessarily mean going to dinner and a movie. It means actually doing something you like instead of being a couch potato, talking about the some old thing, or being mom and dad.

Its funny but Ive never done the date thing. I had a phobia of eating infront of people so dinners etc were out the question. Never did the cinama thing either.. Me and my guy just became us.. never dated. I met him through friends and it was life as usual only the two of us. Maybe its a balkan thing!!

We have date night once a week and my parents take the boy overnight once a month. It's a necessity. ;)

This a must for every couple. In fact, you should institute this before there is even a need for it. :)
