The phenomenon of ‘date night’ has recently become more and more embedded in our society. Setting aside a night every week to do something fun with your partner has plenty of benefits. Many of us live such hectic lifestyles these days that we often find it difficult to make time to actually catch up with our partners. Even for those couples who live together, long working hours and other commitments can mean that you rarely get a night on the sofa together – let alone a romantic meal! Date night can be for anyone; whether you’ve been married for years or are just in the first throes of a new relationship. Use these ideas for inspiration on where date night could take you next.
The classic meal out
Nothing screams ‘date’ more than a romantic dinner for two. This kind of date night can be fun as you can make it as glamorous as you like. However, you don’t need to spend a fortune to look good. With discount offers such as 6PM Promo Codes, you can get that date night look perfected on next to nothing. Dressing up for the evening will also make the date seem more special. Pick either an old favorite, like the restaurant where you had your first date, or get adventurous and try something new. Having dinner together can be a great way to catch up on each other’s lives if you’re feeling a bit out of the loop.
The adventure date
Who said that ‘date night’ had to be restricted only to the evenings? Make use of a day off work by enjoying a ‘date day’ together. Visit a local landmark or a museum together and fall back in love with where you live. Or, try an adventurous activity such as rock climbing, abseiling or mountain biking. Doing such a physical activity releases endorphins in the brain – the chemical responsible for a happy mood. You’ll be getting fit, feeling good and spending quality time together, which makes for a pretty successful date. You never know, you might even get hooked and end up booked in every week.
The stay at home date
Sometimes, our finances catch up with us and it simply isn’t practical to spend money on food and activities outside the home. Or, sometimes we just want to spend time in our cozy living room after a hectic week. Thankfully, there are plenty of date ideas you can do in your home that won’t cost you a fortune. Instead of one of you cooking a meal for the other, try cooking dinner together. The team effort will bring you closer together and you’re likely to have some laughs along the way – especially if you are baking! Once you’ve made your food, settle in for a movie night on the couch with a selection of films you’ll both enjoy. Or, go old-school and dig out some old board games to play together. You’ll be surprised at how much fun you’ll have.
