Date night is so, so, so important. I take date nights seriously whether I am in a relationship or completely single. Whether you are taking yourself out on a date or the person you’ve been in a relationship with for over a year. Date nights are a chance to reconnect and enjoy something new. My partner and I do weekly date nights. No matter what, we make sure to enjoy a date night at least once a week, out of the house, so that we can really spend some time together.

What’s a great date night option? Eating. Trying new restaurants or visiting places you both love, food is always a great love language.
