You know that spending a date night with your partner is a great way to spend time with each other. Also, you know that dating is an opportunity to connect as a couple, have new experiences, and strengthen your bond and your relationship.

When designing a special date night, consider these factors:
No matter what you do, don’t allow your cell phone to be a distraction. This is an opportunity for the both of you to spend quality time together. A phone brings along lots of distractions that takes your attention away from your partner. If you can’t resist the urge to check your phone, leave it at home. Or, if spending time at home, turn it off and put it in a drawer or leave it in another room.
A romantic date doesn’t have to be time-consuming, elaborate, or expensive. Rather, it should be an opportunity for you as a couple to focus on each other, have fun, and communicate. Shared experiences help to strengthen the romantic bonds of a partnership and builds trust.
Next time you are planning a special date night, consider the ideas above. Or, design your own. The sky’s the limit with your creativity.
