7 Ways To Turn Up Date Night

Date Night.  Two words that contribute heavily to the success of a marriage.  Two words that I feel should never go silent between husband and wife.  But, what happens if you and your spouse get stuck in the Date Night Rut?  The Date Night Rut is what happens when married couples become repetitive in their actions on Date Night time to a point to where it become dull and unproductive in creating true intimate moments.

In the movie Date Night with Tina Fey and Steve Carrell, their date night at the same restaurant, ordering the same food, is a perfect example of Date Night Rut.  Simply going through the motions of a date with your spouse doesn't award any benefits to your marriage.  Honestly, it's a waste of time.  

So to avoid that dreaded Date Night Rut, Romance Me has put together a list of ideas that will help in keeping the fire active and alive in your dating time with your spouse.  As always my fellow couples, Keep it Hot!

Go All the Way Up

It's something about heights that revs the heartbeat and is exciting to experience.  At least for most people who don't have serious height phobias.  So if you and your spouse are not afraid of heights, then consider taking it to the sky and try a helicopter ride around your city.  Or maybe eat at a rooftop restaurant.  Or maybe stay at a hotel with a balcony, on a top floor of course.  


Have Fun Like Children

It's no secret that kids like to have fun and why shouldn't that apply to us married folk also.  With the demands and pressures of every day life, devoting some time to having fun is a great way to keep yourself from being overloaded.  A few suggestions for acting like a kid are:

Who says that Date Night is all about a few hours together?  Extend your date night by making plans to add a little getaway time together with your spouse. For example if you and your spouse are going to a restaurant inside of a hotel, consider ending the night by getting a room.
