Have you taken that first step to starting a date night routine? To get you going on some ideas, I suggest a private brainstorming session. I suggest each partner come up with their own ideas for date night and write them down on a piece of paper and put it in a "date night" jar. Again, choose activities that will allow you to interact with your spouse and also to have fun with your spouse. Do not share your date night ideas with your partner. Each time you and your spouse schedule date night, choose a slip of paper from the jar and do what it says. The jar idea will help to create the feeling of mystery and excitement in your activity. Prior to coming up with your ideas, you may need to set some agreed up parameters - how much money can we spend, how much time we will allow for the activity, etc. Date night can be fun, exciting and a much needed relief from the daily routine of life. Go ahead, be daring!
