I feel like whenever we go out just the two of us for fun stuff, its a date. We like to go out to dinner, go for bike rides, etc.

i wish i had that problem! we’re long distance and only see each other for a weekend at a time, once every month or so. so our dates are usually dinner (sushi or something like that) and a movie. he’s in a new city and hasn’t explored it completely, so we usually go check out new things there, whether it’s walking around downtown, seeing some of the historical sites, checking out the museum or a musical/play/concert, etc… just look in your local gazette or whatever to see what’s interesting :]

This is cheesey, but every now and then, I make him take me out to paint pottery.  He’s an artist, so he doesn’t mind, but it’s what we did on our first date.  I’m getting quite a collection of servingware together!  🙂

I am the same as @MrsSl82be. I also like to go out somewhere that we wouldn’t ordinarily go (an event or museum or something), and if it’s somewhere a little nicer for dinner or a concert I will dress up so it really feels like a date.

My SO and I make it a point to go out and eat together every Saturday afternoon. We also try to have couples days with some good friends of ours, we make sure that we still spend quality time together, even if it’s just at home watching movies.

We have date night about once a month. It usually consists of us going out for dinner and a movie alone. Sometimes we have “alone” days and take off out of town to go shopping or to some special event like drag races or out to a lake or cave.

It’s nice having little get aways together even if we are coming home that same night. I reccomend exploring your surrounding areas on weekends or days you both have free. I find that my husband and I have the best time when we just spontaneously say “Look how nice it is out! Let’s find something to do!” With technology today it’s very easy to find a hidden gem of a lake online or find good reviews for cute little cafes, great hiking trails, small play houses, etc.

I think still dating while married or in a commited relationship is very important. Even if it’s just some alone time and nothing too planned or elaborate you can still have a wonderful time. I love spur of the moment alone time and adventures that just bring us even closer together.

As corny as it is, I like to go do mini golf or lazer tag or something along those lines. I’m such a child.

Darling Husband and I do a “date night in” every monday which usually consists of a dinner that isn’t a “usual” using the dinner plates that my sis got us (they’re nice and hand painted) and then a movie… It means no editing for Darling Husband and no being “checked out” playing on wedding bee or my phone for me…. also sometimes being known as Naked Mondays (the munchkin goes to great grandmas so we have the house)

We also do lunch dates on Friday… every now and again being a special lunch that would normally cost more than usual.

Every now and again…. and really every now and again we’ll go see a movie, but it’s gotta be something that we’ve REALLY been wanting to see to not wait for it on Netflix or Redbox. lol

We don’t necessarily have a lot of ‘date nights’, more so impromptu dates like going to get lunch or dinner after running to the store or doing something for our house or wedding. We go out for a ‘date’ probably once every other month and its usually a nice dinner and walk

@MrsLongcoatPeacoat: That is a very neat way to remember your date nights 🙂

FH and I don’t live together, but we don’t do date nights a whole lot. Money’s been pretty tight for the duration of our relationship so we consider dates to be when we go out to movies, which, I can’t really remember the last time we went to a movie…

FH and I are both homebodies. We go out to eat at least 3 times a month, even if it is just to the Waffle House, and we go grocery shopping together. I know grocery shopping isn’t really a date, but it gives us time to be away from the dog and because we usually go really early in the morning (between midnight and 2am) we usually have the store to ourselves.

For us:  date nights are usually dinners out where we get dressed up.

Your post reminded me that I always want to feel like I’m dating Darling Husband – I used to dream up different things to either take him or make him or gift him… and I haven’t done that in ages!  Thanks for the reminder!!!

Me and my guy would go see science museums, botanical gardens, beer festivals, and other things in the area before he moved away. We live in a crap city with not much to do, so of course we went an hour away to find stuff…but they were always great dates. 🙂
