No one knows when the love bug will strike; and when it does, we are all over feeling in love and doing everything together. However, as time goes by, familiarity creeps in and couples who were head-over-heels in love are no longer excited to see each other. If they are married, the pressures of work and running the household can take a toll on the relationship. It is at such times that couples who truly love each other start to think of ways to ignite that long-lost spark.
When you find yourself in such a predicament, planning a date night could salvage the relationship, allowing couples to catch up and spend time alone.
So, how do you organize the perfect date night?
- Think outside the box
Most date nights will involve watching your favorite movies- probably, one that you have both seen since the beginning of the relationship. Boring, right? Right!
Why not think outside the box and watch anime dub? Anime contains uncensored romantic films that will spark renewed feelings of love. In the process, you will also learn about Japanese culture and food. Something you might consider learning in the future as you strive to diversify your culinary art.
- Avoid distractions
A date night will only bear its intended fruits if all distractions are eliminated. If you plan on having your date night at home, make sure the children are away at your friends or another family member’s place.
A date night should not be confused with family time. A date night is meant to rekindle the love between couples, and a child budging in or calling for help in their room is only a distraction that is only likely to change the date night into family time.
- Look and wear your favorite fragrance
You should always strive to look good during your date night. The idea is to remind our partner of the fun things that you used to do and of course, how great you look. Go the extra mile and put on your favorite fragrance.
If you are at home, make sure you slip into your sexiest pajamas. Your partner will surely appreciate the effort.
- Have a romantic dinner
Maybe you have heard your partner comment about a fancy restaurant they would like to try. This is the best time to do so.
At the restaurant, ask them to prepare a fancy meal for the both of you. It could be the same meal you had on your first dinner date, among other things. For a home date night setting, you could also do the same or opt to test your culinary skills. If you are both spontaneous and love trying out new things, you could help each other try out a new recipe. The trick here is to be creative and laugh about it in case it burns.
A date night is all about fun. Personalize it to suit your likes and preferences. Also, remember to switch off your phones to ensure you give each other full attention.
