Valentine’s Day is almost here and it’s time to start planning. It’s not always the easiest to get out on February 14 for a date night. Life happens! Work, kids, activities, finding an available sitter, and going out for Valentine’s Day isn’t going to happen for us this year.
It isn’t the end all be all? And it’s really not worth all the stress. I’m not going to miss fighting crowds, finding something I like on a Prix fixed menu, finding something to wear, and finding a babysitter that is willing to work Valentine’s Day.
Staying at home doesn’t sound so bad. Right? Join us! Put the kids to bed early or rent a movie for them. Have a date night in the comfort of your own home!
However, that doesn’t mean all your date ideas have to be confined to the home. When you are thinking about date ideas, select a location that is conducive to a conversation, make sure that you are ready to converse. This may seem obvious, but sometimes nerves get in the way and can make it challenging to get the talk-track going. A great way to get past this roadblock is by taking some time to write down a few thought-provoking questions for your date. Make a note of these on a notecard and have them ready in your pocket if needed. Though it might feel a bit embarrassing to have to pull a notecard out of your pocket, the right date will appreciate the effort you put in place.
