One thing I keep hearing from friends and family is that they don’t have enough time to go on a date night with their significant other or they meant to but forgot. Why is it so easy to write off some of the most potentially rewarding memories of your relationship?
We all get busy; that’s just a part of life these days. Not that I completely agree with it myself, but I fall victim to it just as much as anyone else. A date night on top of a full work day, mixed in with possibly kids, volunteering, and other commitments can feel like it has no place in the week. Then the weekend comes and it’s time for chores, friends, and more commitments. It’s a vicious cycle, but then again no one ever said life was easy. This might seem like a bit of a downer up to this point. I’m with you 100%, but do we pay attention to whispers or war cries?
Date night is meant to be a time for communication, connection, honesty, and possibly some vulnerability. As human beings we crave the company of each other, especially those we love and care for. What might happen if we all decided to take the time to shut off the TV, skip the gym for one night, and spend some pure, unadulterated, quality time with your significant other once a week? You’ll never know unless you try. Plan date night once a week, put maximum effort into it, and see what it does for your relationship. You might find your relationship gets more intimate; you might find you actually have time to talk through some lingering issues; you even might just have more fun than before.
