  • No because my kids will not watch their little brother and if I "make" them they will just neglect him and dh doesn't want "strangers" around his son alone...these strangers are people I know but of course I think it's a ploy to not take me out

  • We have date night...every night.. Whether we are sitting at home watching a movie/gaming..etc.. Or going out and painting the town red.. When we are together, it's date time..

    Over the years, we developed a mind set/attitude of always seeing ourselves as being on a "date" when we are able to spend time together. No matter where we are or what we are doing. For us.. Being on a "date" is far more about our interaction with one another, how we are viewing and treating one another than it has to do with where we are/what we are doing.

    In regards to out on the town date nights. A few times a week we go out together. We do things that range from : dinner, to art gallery openings, concerts, plays...etc.To be fair though, we are empty nesters.. When our son was growing up, before he was a teen, we did "date nights" at home 2 days a week usually. We didn't really start date nights out and about that often until he was a teen

  • Yes, it's been almost 5 years. We try to have date night every Saturday. It's mostly inside though. we watch a movie, have a nice meal or talk. We only go out maybe once every 6 months due to finances, time and our son. But, we do a little something each weekend and call it date night. It's all a frame of mind.

  • No...we do things together all the time when DH is home, so we don't feel we need to set aside time to call it a "date night" to spend time together or pretend we're on a date or whatever that is really about. Some may need that but we don't. I think it's just sort of 'faddish' or 'cutesie', maybe I think it's even just a bit corny. Either you're married and giving it all you've got and you make sure you get your "together time" or you don't or you're not married and still dating each other. We've never bought into that whole date night thing.

  • Not a set night, but we do go out on dates once/month or so. Usually we just go catch a late supper at restaurant and talk, sometimes we eat at home and just go out for drinks and appetizers. It's nice to get away - when we are home I can always see about 10 other things I need to be doing!
