we always try to do something every week but things are more laid back than before, before marriage we’d have nice dinner dates at nice restaurants I would always dress up to the nines; now we have fun hanging out at our local pub round the corner, we live in NYC so it’s easy to just leave the house and pick a spot, but we are more relaxed and don’t have to impress each other as much; the times we do go out on fancy dates is when its our anniversary or Valentines day or a friend’s party we’ll watch a show and have a nice fancy dinner before or after; but it’s a different way of dating now because we’re married now, so our goals have changed now we’re thinking of the future and saving up for a house and our bills so our dates are much more laid back we don’t go clubbing anymore, that’s one difference it’s more of a singles scene there; we still go on trips he surprised me with a trip to the Stonehenge in england on our anniversary when we first met, I thought that was really romantic, this was when we moved to England for 8months, the romance is there, but I say we are just more relaxed around each other and more secure now that we are married and it reflects in our dates; other things we do is watch the matinee movie its cheaper, we’ll spend the afternoon strolling the park, and checking out various diners for brunch after church, brunch is a big deal in NYC but a lot cheaper than most meals
I think its nice to have hubby and me time it doesnt always have to be fancy, but its a great way of having couple bonding time together and enjoy being with each other in public

Yes: Bowling, movies, mini-golf and arcade, dinner or dessert out..we want to go to a sciency museum, go paint pottery, and to the zoo. Our best date was the arcade:)
Plus we spend quality time together: snuggling on couch and watching tv/moves together, go play basketball, walk at the park, etc.

We’ve had two dates, one for my birthday and one for our two year anniversary of our first date, which was right after the wedding.
We live in a tiny college town, though, and there’s nowhere to go, really, so I’m hoping this changes in a few weeks when we move back to a city.
Until then, I’m really jealous of you bees that get to go on dates!

Yes! Hubby & I lived together for 9 months before getting married. We have always gone on “dates.” We go on dinner dates on the weekends. We go golfing about every other weekend on sunday. (Our passion!) We go to the movies every so often, usually only if its a movie we have been waiting to see, otherwise we wait till its on PPV or buy the dvd. We do other things IDK if people would consider a date. Like hiking, going to a big public nature park and cook out/hiking. We do other things like take our dog to the park and have a picnic, go to the park and play basketball, we go to the Y about every morning and work out together. Basically on the weekends we do something. Weather it be a dinner date or staying home and cuddling up on the couch watching a movie, to visiting my parents or my in laws! Its whatever the couple wants, not everyone goes on dates all the time or every weekend. Whatever makes you two happy, is what you should do. 🙂 If you want to go on more dates, ask him/tell him. I’m sure he wants to, if you want to. 🙂

We do occasionally. We’ve been to a few plays, movies, etc. Right now it’s pretty hard for us b/c we’re moving into a new house and I’m very pregnant, but we’re still going to go on a dinner cruise next weekend and we’re staying at a hotel on the beach for the night at the end of the month. I guess we should do as much as we can before the baby comes!

We do mini dates all the time, around once or twice a week. This can be either hitting up a happy hour, or picking up sushi from the grocery store nearby and eating on the patio. We don’t do a lot of fancy things, and rarely go out to dinner, but we also do a lot of things on weekends like visiting local museums, or even just walking around for a few hours.

We go on dates sometimes, but we mostly try to do something together on a daily basis, especially since we’re trying to be smart about our money these days. So I usually make dinner every night and we go for walks in the evening and catch up about our day. We are lucky to have a pool and hot tub in our apartment complex, so now that its warm, we can lay out and soak too. (That’s what we did today and it was so fun!)
I think we got out to eat once every other week. Sometimes its just the place across the street, or sometimes its a nice steakhouse. Since I’m so stressed out studying for the Bar exam these days, Darling Husband usually takes me on a daytrip somewhere about once a month. We went to a nearby lake last month, and he’s taking me to wine country next weekend to do some champagne tasting!
