A Date For Every Week Of the Year

couple relationship Feb 17, 2020

How many times have you sat down with your partner and asked yourselves ‘Soooo what do you want to do tonight?  Where do you want to go?  Or, been on vacation and wondered what to do next?

This is an issue I see a lot with my clients when they’re in the process of increasing their intimacy in their relationship.  They run out of ideas and at times forget how to get to know each as they grow as individuals and as a couple.

One of the couples I work with came up with the following idea… I’m sure you’ve heard of the ‘gratitude jar’ where you write down what you’re grateful for that day and put it in the jar.  Well, they have a ‘date box’.  They got together during a date night, wrote down thirty things they want to do on separate pieces of paper, decorated a box and put the pieces of paper in the box.  The goal is to pick a piece of paper and do what it says that night so there’s no more wondering what to do on Friday or Saturday nights!  Cool huh!

Well, here I’m taking their idea (with their permission) a little further.  I’ve come up with 52 date ideas for you.  Some you can do during the summer and some during the colder months of the year.
