going on real dates is something we've always struggled with. we just love hanging out! ideally, we'd spend every "date" night snuggled up on the couch, reading and eating or walking along a cold, pebbly beach, or playing spit on our living room rug.
and then we go on a date, a real date, and i remember that i actually like dates. i always think that a date will be exhausting after a long week, but i'm so wrong! dates aren't exhausting, they're rejuvenating!
a couple weeks ago my mom and sisters watched gage and steven and i went to the cheesecake factory and just about ate ourselves into serious illness, then we walked around the shops for a while. nothing fancy, but so fun! i always forget how much fun we have when it's just the two of us, dressed up a little, full of delicious food.
aside from dinner and movies, what kinds of dates do you go on with your significant other? do you have a set day of the week that you've designated as 'date night' or do you try to be spontaneous about it? what works for you?
