Use this as an opportunity (or an excuse) to step up your dating game. Continuing (and remembering) to date each other is a fun way to stay connected to your partner when you have so many other responsibilities and commitments (children, careers, housework, bills, to name a few). It does require making an effort. You’ll likely need to plan ahead, but hopefully by booking the sitter and marking the date on your calendar you’ll consider yourselves “locked in” to spending this valuable time together.
Hold up! Before you make reservations at your usual restaurant, maybe this month you diverge from dinner and a movie, and instead use your favorite movies as inspiration for your date(s)!
Here are a few examples that came to my mind, but I’m sure you can come up with some great ideas of your own!
Don’t fret if things don’t go perfectly—the goal is simply to laugh, have fun, and maybe try something new with your partner. Trying new activities together fosters intimacy!
P.S. Don’t forget to wish the appropriate people in your life Happy Mother’s Day on May 10th!
