Leftover Time

I cannot tell you how many times I have listened to couples discuss great adventurous trips or watch them make plans to enjoy some great activities, but not with each other. There are shopping trips, man cave events, girls night out, bowling leagues, camping trips, church sponsored events, and the list goes on. However, when it comes to a couple's date night or some quality time activity, it seems that there is nothing but leftover time. The best part of the day or week has been taken by other people or other activities that exclude your partner.

Here’s a suggestion you may want to consider: Discuss a weekly or at least a bi-weekly date and time that is set aside for the two of you alone. Set it far enough in advance that it can be accomplished but not too far away that it can be forgotten. Plan the activities, with a time schedule of events and a dress code to boot.  The goal is to make it an exciting event for both of you.

Happy dating!
