How Date Nights Can Protect Your Relationship From A Divorce

Try rotating date night by categories such as active, artsy, culinary, nature, comedy, musical, and theatre. If you make sure to mix things up, you will never get bored. Do have trouble deciding. Don’t let it become an obligation or stressful but instead make it simple and easy. 

Create a jar of things you want to do or try. Every time you find something cool to do online, in a magazine, or from a friend you jot it down and toss it in your activity jar.  Then you can pull out an idea on demand to make it easy on yourself. You can also find some great date ideas in the Surprise Date Challenge book series.

No Talking About Boring Things

This includes, but is not limited to anything work or kid-related. At the beginning of your relationship, what did you talk about? Your hopes and dreams? Perhaps your aspirations and places you desired to travel to? If you have a hard time coming up with topics, you can always Google conversation starters or join the Date on Demand Club. It provides you with 6 new conversation questions each month. Something like “What was something you did growing up that seemed normal but now seems really weird?”

The Benefits Of Date Night

1. Boost to Commitment –

Couples who have regular date nights are on average 2 times more committed to their relationship than couples that don’t.

2. Increased Communication –

Regular date nights provide an increased satisfaction in communication by about 3 times.

3. Sexual Satisfaction –

Couples who have regular date nights have better sex lives and more frequent sexual encounters. Did that get your attention?

4. Decrease in Divorce –

Couples who have date nights that are novel and new regularly are less likely to call it quits.

I hope I’ve made it abundantly clear that you can’t afford not to do date night. It’s as essential as oxygen to a relationship. If you desire a beautiful, thriving, and successful relationship, then be sure to keep your date nights on track.

Not to mention having a killer sex life. One of the biggest complaints from clients is that their sex life has dwindled over time. They sometimes aren’t as interested in sex as much as they used to be. The frequency, as well as satisfaction level, has decreased. Adding a surprise date is like foreplay. It adds excitement and anticipation which will do wonders for your libido.

You can thank me later.
