4 Ways to Take Date Night from Ho-Hum to Oh-So-Much-Fun!
Date night is quickly becoming an American institution when it comes to
putting the spark back into fading marriages or simply keeping the home
fires from burning out altogether. The problem is, many couples are
forgetting what date night is really about. Instead of taking the
initiative and seeking out new and exciting date night ideas, many couples
fall back on a few old standards. Once in a while, these standard date
night activities are excellent. However, when they become the normal
routine for your weekly date night, it takes the fun and excitement out of
date night completely.
So, what should you do to fill the love of your life with excitement about
date night? Try these things on for size.
1) Take Turns Planning Your Date Night Activities
If one person is left doing all the planning, things can get old really
quick. More importantly, it doesn’t place all the pressure on the
shoulders of one of you. The ultimate benefit though is that you’ll be
able to try new things you may never experience if one person does all the
planning. Some date night events will be hits, others will be misses. The
key is that both of you plan with mutual enjoyment of the evening in mind.
2) Avoid Repeats Within a Two-Month Period
This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t eat at the same restaurant for two
months, though that would certainly be nice as well. What it does mean is
that you should avoid repeating the same date experience (dinner and a
movie, date night in, picnic theme, etc.) in two months. It may be a bit
of a challenge but if you flex your creative muscles it’s totally doable.
The most it will mean is nine weeks before you can repeat a date night
3) Make it Fun!
Date night doesn’t have to take place at night and it doesn’t,
necessarily, have to involve acting like grownups. There are plenty of fun
ways to bring on a little romantic fun for the two of you.
* Race car experience
* Tandem sky diving
* Bungee jumping

* Ice skiing
* Ice skating
* Rock climbing
* Minor league sporting event

* Water skiing

These are all excellent date night choices that don’t cost an outrageous
amount of money and can be a ton of fun for both of you to experience. You
don’t have to go out of the way, or even off the beaten path to find great
date night experiences you’re sure to cherish.
With so many exciting options available, date night should never be boring
again. Don’t forget to look back in your own dating history to dates that
really stand out as fun for both of you. It’s always good to recreate
special experiences for celebrations such as birthdays and anniversaries
