If you've got that feeling on date night, then use that night to relax...together.
For our date night last week, we decided to not go anywhere and spend time together at the house. Yes, I think that counts as a date so long as you are doing things together:)
We had a great time making dinner together, talking, laughing and just being together. We played piano and guitar and then a competitive game of Poker and ERS. I'm not kidding when I say competitive...I may or may not have been giving mean looks to my husband;) Yes, believe it or not, we are both very competitive! Sometimes that makes it more fun though. By the time we finished playing games, it was pretty late, so we ended the night watching a movie in our living room.
Now that's affordable dating right there!
That's the thing about date night... it's yours to do with what you want. There's no rules you have to follow or expectations you have to meet. It's all about your relationship with your husband/wife and taking time to deepen it!
I was trying to look up the definition of dating and a summary of what I found is this: Dating is when a couple spends time together to get to know each other and be with each other.
In my opinion, that should never stop, even when you are married. We are all changing as we get older and mature, so there can always be something new to find out about your spouse. The couples that stop spending quality time together are the couples that look at each other 20 years later and say "who are you anymore?" Don't let it get to that point. Take time to care about who your husband/wife is and is becoming!
