My fiance is deployed so date night for now consists of me putting on a pretty dress and he puts on one of the polos he has over there and we facetime for about 4 hours every Saturday!

We usually eat out for breakfast on Saturday after we go to the gym. Not a date night but it is our special time together we get to relax and enjoy each other before running errands.

We have at home movie night dates at least once a week. We have sit down dinner date nights at least twice a month. They don't have to be a super upscale place. Sometimes it's just dinner at Chillis. Sometimes it's not even dinner, we might go to an arcade or to see a comedy show. We just love spending time with each other regardless of what it is and try to do so often.

DH travels for work, so basically whenever he's home we have date nights. Of course we basically consider anything a date. Cooking dinner together is a date. Going to Target is a date. Cuddling and watching Netflix is a date. We try to make every night a date night.

Rarely. We love together so not a big deal. Maybe at least once a month we go out to be kid-free

Everyday is date night!!
Usually we will get dinner or go to breakfast on the weekends. We have oppposite schedules during the week so just spending time on the weekends together is perfect.

We try to have one at least a couple nights a month. We had a nice dinner tonight and did one of those wine and painting classes a couple weeks ago. We do make a point to sit down and talk with each other everyday and do lots of things together.

We have 4 kids that live in our house ages 12-19. We have date night at least 2 times a month and we always go to bed at the same time-together.

We have a "no electronics or reading during dinner" rule that gets applied every night. We do our laundry together on Saturdays. Sundays are usually an afternoon of building models and then cooking dinner together. We go to a bookstore 3-6 times a month.

Once a week, usually Friday nights since my children go with there dad overnight. Sometimes it's dinner and a movie, other times it's takeout and tv in front of the fire. Reguardless of what it entails, we are usually in bed around 10, even though I sit on WW. It's rarely an extravagant date, but being as FH works 16 hours a day... literally 365 days a year... it's very important for us to reconnect and have that time.

My fiancé and I have a daughter together, so we have to plan our date nights. We go out twice a month on a Saturday. Our daughter stays by my mother and we give her money to watch her. We pick her up the following Sunday to spend quality time with her before the weekend ends. We pretty low key with our dates. Usually we stay in and watch movies. If we do go out, we usually go bowling, movies or have drinks and dinner. I love spending alone time with him. 😍

I can relate to a lot of these responses! Any time spent together can count as date night, it doesn't have to be a fancy night out!

FH and I have a planned date night at least once a week, either on a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday. It's a ritual that's left over from our dating days. I plan to keep this up. Date night rule is something that is planned and takes place out of the house. Some past date days/nights include theater, opera, symphony, comedy shows, concerts, sporting events, museums, festivals, sex workshops, etc. In addition to this, when FH moved in, we agreed that I would cook dinner Monday-Fridays, Saturdays are leftovers, and FH gets lunch and dinner on Sundays. FH can either learn how to cook, order in, or take me out. He usually picks the latter two. Built-in weekly date!

Every Tuesday and most Wednesdays because of my work schedule. We love to just cuddle up on the couch and watch a movie.

I work second shift and he works first shift so the only time we get to spend together is on the weekends. As long as I get to spend time with him I'm happy.
