I’m about to make a wild, extreme, and severe relationship rule: the word busy is a load of crap and is most often used by assholes. The word ‘busy’ is the relationship Weapon of Mass Destruction. It seems like a good excuse, but in fact in every silo you uncover, all you’re going to find is a man who didn’t care enough to call. Remember men are never too busy to get what they want.
Date nights are important. It does not matter if you have just started dating or if you have been married for years and are just trying to stay connected. Dates are a great way to get those special moments with that special someone and to really be able to enjoy yourself and reconnect.
Many people fall into the trap of no longer having dates. They plan “date nights” at home and end up just doing the same things that they would every other night. Dates do not have to be elaborate but they should take you away from the daily bump and grind and get you into a special state of mine.
Finding the right places to go is easy. You can spend a little on a date, a lot, or honestly spend no money at all. There are many great ideas for you to be able to have a perfect night and by following these tips each date that you have can be special.
1. Pick the Right Reason for the Date
There are many reasons that you might be thinking about going on a date with someone. You might find them interesting and you might have a strong desire to get to know them better. Another reason for a date is to show someone that you are with that you care to try and impress them and you want them to know that you think about them on a regular basis.
2. Figure Out What to Wear
Make sure that you know what you are going to wear on your date. You want to be appropriate in your style, type of clothing, and situation that you will be in. You do not want to wear jeans to a fine dining restaurant. You also do not want to wear a suit to a casual restaurant or to the park. Know where you are going and dress like you normally would at that location.
3. Know How to Be Prepared
It is important for you to be completely prepared for your date. Know how much it is going to cost and make sure to have extra money. Prepare your date with an idea of what to expect so that they can be dressed in the right way. Know the location and how to get there from where you are picking up your date.
4. Be Casual
Going casual is a great idea for you to be able to have a great time while you are going on a date. You can go on a number of outdoor dates or even to a great restaurant. If you do not know what the other person really likes make sure to ask about types of food or things that they do not like. If they hate Indian food going to your favorite Indian restaurant could be a disaster.
5. Know How to Act Carefree
While you are on a date make sure that you are carefree. Being carefree can be really hard when you have a life together already. If you can master this it will be great and you will have a good time no matter where your date is at.
6. Do Not Have the Focus Be the Date
Focus on the person that you are with and not on the date itself. It is important that you focus on your date, listen to them talk, and learn more about them. Focusing on your date will help them to feel special and like you really value and care about your time together.
7. Learn What Your Other Half Will Love
Choosing the best place to go on a date is something that is hard for everyone. If you are just new to dating it is hard because you might not know what your date is really going to enjoy. If you are an established couple think of something that you know your other half loves and try to incorporate that into your date.
8. Find Ways to Have a Real Date Night at Home
It is not a good idea to keep all of your dates at home. That being said you can have a special date night together at home if you have to. Make sure that you completely focus on the date, let everything else go, and have a good time being together.
9. Use Candlelight
Candlelight is a great way to be able to make a date at home feel romantic. Some restaurants offer a candlelight dinner service as well. Candlelight is very romantic and can easily put a couple that is established in a special mood making them want to focus on one another.
10. Take It Outside
Enjoying a date together that is outside is one great way that you can really have a unique time together and something different. Finding the best date outdoors is one way that you can really focus on spending time together without having to spend a fortune. You can enjoy a bottle of wine, cheeses, and small appetizers on a blanket under the stars for a late dinner or you can enjoy a picnic at the beach during the day.
