@iheartnerdyboys: Im sorry to hear about your grandfather and your uncle. That isnt ever easy to deal with but especially not after just getting married.

Darling Husband and I have been on a few dates since getting married. Since its been winter we really havent done anything besides go to the movies or go out to dinner but we did go to a nice restaurant to celebrate 6 months of marriage and got dressed up for that. Once spring finally rolls around we will definitely go on more dates. I think its easy to get into a slump you just have to make a concerted effort!

We went on a date about two weeks after we got married–we wanted to go back to the restaurant that was part of the hotel where we stayed on our honeymoon, lol.

We have a date this weekend πŸ™‚  I have no idea where, either!  Can’t wait!

We typically have a dates.  We’re alone–our whole family is 2,500 miles away.  It’s us and our puppies, so we spend a lot of time together doing stuff.

My husband of a few months and I go on a lot of dates…. but I think part of it is that we live in NYC where getting out of the apartment and trying restaurants and plays and attending events is just a way of life.  If you feel that you miss dates – I would recommend setting aside a schedule on the Calendar. 

For example:  every Sunday night, or every first Friday of the month, is dedicated to the 2 of you.  It can be a casual night in where you cook together and watch Netflix, or a big night out on the town….but I think there’s something about scheduling a “date night” that makes the night special (even if you’re just ordering take out).

I’m so sorry to hear of your family losses.

We have gone out on a few date nights since the wedding (6+ months ago), eating out at diff restaurants and seeing some movies. We usually do wine/hot tub nights at home where we get QT with one another. I can’t wait until it warms up so that we can go do more stuff outside.

We go on a date every week.  At least once a week.  We don’t have a lot of dollars, but every week we spend a whole day together (the only day we have off together) and go to art galleries, or out to lunch, or window shopping.  We also go to the cheap theater for movies, take the dog for a hike.  We also go out shooting (as in- I shoot film).  We also love staying in though, watching movies. 

Darling Husband hates bars- so that part of my life is over, but that’s okay.

Sorry you had some rough times after your wedding.  We try to go on dates fairly frequently.  Actually, we had a dinner & movie date the day after our wedding!  We spend a lot of time at home together, but sometimes it is so nice to get away from the tv and computers and just talk over dinner.  Plan some dates for yourselves!

Yes, we occasionally go on dates. But, when we were dating, my actual favorite dates were watching a movie at home while enjoying wine… so to me, we have several dates per week; but if you consider going out somewhere nice, yeah, we do have them. We go out to concerts, or theater, or dinner…

We have a date night every week. We haven’t always been consistent with it, but more recently as life has gotten busy we guard that pretty well. We don’t always leave the house (mainly becaue we have a pretty tight budget), but we set aside that evening together (a lot of times we’ll watch a movie, read together, play a game, go to a coffee shop, or hang out at a book store)

We didn’t go on dates before the wedding, so it’s not a big deal to not be doing it now either. I work two jobs (saving for a house) and my husband works full-time and goes to grad school part-time. So “date night” for us is when I get take-out and we clean up the DVR a little.

Yes, date nights are something we both enjoy! We do little dates weekly (typiclaly we go out one weekend night & spend the next alone together going out to eat or a movie.

Each month we make make a point to do something extra special (besides the typical date that we do every week.) I love husband date night!!

We made a New Years Resolution to try one new restaurant a month. We had gotten into a rut of going to the same places over and over. We picked 12 out of a local magazine (most are not fancy, just different) and already have the months chosen to go to each one. So I know I’ll at least have 12 date nights this year πŸ™‚

SOrry about your loss πŸ™

Yeah we go on dates a lot kinda… maybe once a week to dinner or just to the mall…something to get out. If we had more money, we’d go more πŸ™‚ Gotta take advantage before the kids come, and destress, and take time out for each other. There are lots of excuses you know πŸ™‚

We go on dates about once a week if not more. Sometimes it is spontaneous, but most of the time it requires a reservation way in advance.
