Guys Lead – It’s primarily the man’s job to pursue and initiate romance with the wife. Men remember leaders go first – so you take the initiative when it comes to date nights.
Set a budget –
Include babysitter that you wife can be confident in. Remember, stress kills romance. Do all you can to alleviate stress on your date night.
Don’t over tax the budget. Date night do not have to be fancy, simplicity can be very romantic.
Consider an atmosphere conducive to conversation
Consider the food – Avoid heavy foods, or else you will get drowsy half way through the date.
Plan an activity – Men build relationships through activities. It may just be a walk in the park, but take the time to plan an activity where the two of you are accomplishing something together.
Consider who participates – don’t always double date. Double dates can be fun, but limit them to once every five weeks or so.
Define a win – It’s help if you both have some idea of what you are trying to achieve. For example, is this night supposed to be relaxing, exciting, productive, etc?
Give your date enough info to prepare but no too much, anticipation is your friend
Set boundaries together – what can we talk about? We make it a rule not to discuss certain topics that tend to stress us out. You have to define what those are to you, but doing so can save a ton of stress on a date.
Make it regular – Set a regular night on your calendar that is your date night. Looking forward to that night is half the fun!
