Ideas For Date Night With Your Spouse

Taking time to spend with your partner is incredibly important in order to keep your relationship going strong.  Without remembering to keep your connection alive you can start to lose touch with what made you connect in the first place.

Experts recommend taking at least one night a week to connect with your partner. This can be any kind of activity that you choose as long as it is something that you both enjoy together and brings out the best in both of you.  Here are some of the best ideas for two busy people trying to keep their relationship alive.

Go To a Bar

Going to a  bar is one of those classic date activities that never goes out of style. Having a few drinks is a great way to loosen up and forget about your daily problems.  Sometimes all it takes is a few glasses of wine before one of your heads starts to hurt, so remember that unless you want to get a hangover the next day, try to keep your drinking under control.

You can choose something that has sentimental value for you which can be an extra romantic perk.  It can also be a fun activity trying out new spots in your neighborhood which you want to check out.

Have a “Staycation” On The Couch

Let’s face it, sometimes at the end of a long day all you want to do is put on a pair of sweatpants and chill on your couch.  This doesn’t mean that you don’t want to cuddle and enjoy time with your sweetie, however.  Why not do both?

Having a “staycation” at home on the couch is a great way to enjoy downtime but also enjoy the company of your spouse.  While this shouldn’t always be your date, it is fun to do once in awhile as a special lazy treat.

Go See A Movie

Going to see a movie is one of the best traditional dates for a man and a woman to go on.  It brings up 1950’s nostalgia of going hand in hand to a drive-in movie.  

If you and your partner don’t have the same tastes in movies, then you can take turns each time. Instead of making it about what you want to see, practice being generous by getting pleasure out of enjoying what your partner enjoys, even if it is a horror movie. You can try to tone down the movie choice by opting for a film with an engaging storyline (check out the latest horror movies on or similar websites).

Start a Hobby Together

There are lots of couples classes out there like painting, dance, or even singing.  By starting an activity together you can create a special bond and team mentality.  Take a look online or ask around with friends about some cool ideas that might be available in your neighborhood.
