We try to get out together once a week. Whether it be for coffee or lunch, I really like having that time with Fiance.

At least once a week. DH’s passion is NYC restaurants and my passion is eating so it’s the perfect storm.

We usually go out to dinner once a week (at least) when I get off work, but an actual event/activity date?  Very seldom.  Fiance works out of town for a living, and I work Tuesday Through Saturday from 11a-8p, so we get to see each other a whole whopping 4 hours on Saturdays and all day Sunday.  We live together, so that helps, but its still a bummer.  I love that his job allowed me to do what I do, but I hate that it takes him out of town every. single. week.   Meh.

We do a double date with another couple once a week. We call it dinner club and we make a point to try a new restaurant/new dish/new culture every week.

 When we were teenagers we went out 2-3 times a week. Now we are lucky to go out once or twice a month. He works six days a week, I go to school and we have a daughter together- doesn’t leave much time for dates .

Next week on his day off we are taking the baby to the Aquarium for the first time, does this count ? lol.

Just the two of us? Probably once a month. We will go to dinner and a movie or something like that. But on the weekends we go for long walks, or meet up with friends for lunch…but I dont count that as dates.

We dated a lot before we lived together. We both had roommates so it was awkward/difficult hanging out at home on the weekends. We also didnt have a mortgage at that time so we had no problem going to fancy restaurants all the time. Ahhh the good old days 🙂

We are saving for the wedding, and a house, so we have cut our going out way down. Actually, i think it makes it more special when we do go out. We definately use coupons when we go anywhere, our big investment was an Entertainment book, which has probably paid for itself about 10 times over by now. Instead of going to movies we have Netflix which is great for us.

We generally go out on dates 3-4 times a week. we work in the same area so sometimes we meet up for lunch dates. We usually bring lunch and go to the park to eat together. Sometimes after work we would catch a movie or grab dinner (lol usually just fast food or chinese…nothing expensive). We even started going on ice cream runs and spending the night talking. We both like going out but right now we’re on a budget for building our first home so our dates usually involve something cheap/free.

We usually don’t have the time to go out on dates. We work all day until 4:30pm, eat a fast dinner, then go ride the horses until like 9pm or 10pm on Monday-Friday. On the weekend I do the laundry all one day, we still have to take care of the horses, and we relax a little. In the winter we Snowboard on the weekend also. In the spring/summer/fall we like to camp and hike on the weekend.

Just recently I have been trying to have us go out to somewhere like our favorite Italian resturant or something once a week or so (usually on our horses day off).

We are LDR, so not often. But I’m moving there in May, and he wants to go on dates at least once a week. We’re both really busy so this will ensure that we get enough quality time 🙂 We’re thinking about Tuesday night movie night because popcorn is only $1!!!

We used to go at least onece a week, but with the wedding so close we have dialled it back to every other week for a full on date but we still do lots of things at home in between. After the wedding we will go back to weekly dates,

We used to go out on a real date (usually a nice dinner out) at least once a week, but we just bought a house so are trying to live more frugally.  We talk about cultivating cheaper hobbies, but so far it hasn’t happened.  So we haven’t been on many dates of late.

We used to go out to dinner all the time. Now we’re trying to save money, so we do picnics in the park. I think it’s very important to have quality time in the relationship.
