Just curious to see what other couples do in the evenings, together or apart?
We usually cook dinner (sometimes together, sometimes we take turns), and eat together. Do a quick clean of the kitchen, then watch TV for an hour. Have another hour of “pillow talk” just recapping our days and talking about stuff, then go to bed.
Occasionally we’ll play a card game instead of TV, or read a book before bed, but we’re pretty boring in the evenings and keep it pretty relaxed. My husband isn’t done with work until 7pm, so by the time we’ve eaten and cleaned up after dinner, it’s usually 8:30 anyway. We go to bed around 11.

We’re boring, too :). We cook, eat and clean up and then DH usually plays a computer game while I take over the console. Usually we throw on Netflix for good measure, and then we go to bed after a couple hours.

Unfortunately FH works crazy hours so we don’t get to see each other during the week (or even weekends sometimes). That will change once we buy a house though. We don’t live together right now.

@miss-spunkin: Our nights sound pretty similar to yours! I usually cook while DH plays XBOX or watches TV, we eat, clean up together, and then watch TV together or go to the gym.

We are boring too 🙂 DH actually usually cooks supper (leftover habit from his four months without a job after graduation last Dec. I made him be my wife :), clean up, I usually watch tv, hang out here, and work on my cross-stitches while DH peruses Reddit and plays video games.
We are lame-o but I like not having a ton to do like we did when were in school/wedding planning.

But usually eat dinner then maybe watch a few minutes of tv or a movie if it’s the weekend.

My Fiance gets off work at 10:30 so he brings me home food… we eat while watching something on HULU then we lay down and watch something else on HULU and have lots of cuddles. He falls asleep around midnight and I continue to play on the computer till 3 or 4am lol. It’s pretty much the same everynight.

We can definitely seem boring on weeknights but I find that nights we end up doing things during the week I’m just more tired! DH gets home at around 5, I get home at 6 and we make dinner. We’re usually done with dinner by 7 and we watch TV or a movie. Sometimes we’ll go on a walk around the neighborhood to talk. I’ll usually go for a run at some point…either while dinner is cooking or at around 8. Eventually we move to bed and we usually talk while an episode of Friends is playing (we have all 10 seasons on DVD and just turn them on for background sometimes) before we go to sleep. We both get up at around 5:30am so I go to sleep pretty early, between 10 and 10:30. DH usually plays a game on his phone in bed and goes to sleep around 11.

We do the same stuff! I cook, FH plays Xbox, he does the dishes while I watch a little TV. Then we watch TV together, take the dog for a walk and read little before bed. We go to dance lessons twice a week, too. We used to play Boggle a lot- we should start doing that again. We’re really trying to get out of the house more during the week, but it’s so hard to motivate ourselves!

yeah we have netflix for our wii as opposed to TV, much cheaper lol
what shows are you watching right now on netflix? We are liking melissa & joey, and I like Army Wives.
we used to go to the gym together a lot more, then when we decided to try buying a house, we canceled our membership to save some $$. I can’t wait to get our membership again! I miss it so much!

We have a similar evening schedule. We both get home around 6:30ish and usually DH grills something, I prepare the sides, or we make dinner together. After dinner, we clean up and assemble our lunches for the next day, watch TV, play on the computer, or read books. I am usually in bed by 9pm, lol. Sometimes he joins me, but he usually stays up a little later. I admit that sometimes I wish we could shake things up a bit on the weeknights….

I like this post =)
He gets home before I do, usually 6 pm, I get home around 7ish. So by the time I get home dinner is just about done (he cooks on weekdays). We settle down infront of the TV (I know Mom, it’s bad) and eat our dinner while watching Jeopardy hehe..we like to compete against one another on who gets more right =). Then we usually hang out for about an 1hr until one or both of us decides to go to the gym (across the street from our place, we are members of a pretty nice gym). If we don’t go to the gym its usally more TV (him, like Monday night football) and me, reading or the Bee!…Then its shower time and bed time. I’m usually in bed by 11, just after the 10:30 news is over… he stays up a bit later on most nights.usually 12:30-1 am.

This is a typical night for us. Fi is in the shower, I’ve got dinner cooking, we’ll eat in a few, then watch TV. Yay for domestic bliss!
