    Aww! That is so cute and something we plan on doing after getting married… well, actually, we try to do it right now too!

    The girl who lived in this apartment before me got married while she was living here, too and thus had a free "the nest" sent to the apartment every month, and they had a great "cheap date night" article about… oh, 6 months or so ago? You should totally check it out, it had great ideas! (I think you can search it online.)

    We don’t really have a particular day that we go out, but usually twice a month we will go out for a dinner and a movie.  But that is a great idea to make sure it continues once we get married.

    Ever since we’ve moved in together four years ago, we’ve reserved Friday night as our date night. If we have to make plans with other people that night, we move it to Saturday.

    We both also feel it’s important to have at least one night a week to really devote yourselves to each other. It’s our way of staying connected and keeping the romance alive πŸ™‚ I really want to take a cooking class at some point, too. How fun!

    I got home at 6:30 and FH will be home at 7:30 so tonight will be our date night πŸ™‚

    But pretty much everynight we watch a movie or have dinner together. Sometimes we spruce it up and go bowling or to a movie

    We usually do a "date night" on Friday. We look forward to this time together… not every Friday is date night- meaning we will definitely flex if we have friends or family that want to get together with us on these nights, but usually. We have a river within walking distance that connects with 2 big lakes in our city… we walk down to the river with a blanket at dusk and just sit and talk undearneath willow trees- it is so relaxing and peaceful. Otherwise we do dinner and a movie a lot and go for evening bike rides or long drives. Just something we can count on πŸ™‚

    If we do have a date night, it’s usually on a Saturday evening.  I love it, I feel like we’re still courting each other, and I just feel pretty.  We always clean up really well for date night lol

    We don’t do date night consistently, but we will go out occasionally, especially if the kids are away. Otherwise, we make plans to watch a movie together which is always fun for us too.

    I like the idea of date night, but we’ve never done it and never really needed to. We are also best friends and one way or another we go out together on a regular basis.

    We go out and have fun, but we don’t have a set “date night.” But I can definitely see us getting a babysitter and going out for a movie in a few years!

    Friday nights are our date nights.  We’ve been doing this as long as we’ve been together (3.5 years now).  Of course, we’re flexible with it and if need be, we’ll have date night on Saturday or Sunday.  It’s usually something very simple, like trying a new restaurant, or seeing a play or movie.  What matters is we get out and spend quality time together.  πŸ™‚

    I’m not married yet, but ever since we started dating we’ve always spent Friday nights together. We always go out to eat or make dinner then watch TV/movies. While it was on the air, we used to watch that Chimp Eden show on animal planet. He really liked that show for some reason, haha! But, of course, sometimes things come up and we just hang out the next night. I hope that after we get married that we can still continue this Friday night date πŸ™‚
