2013 Date Nights: Introduction

Happy New Year! 

In case you missed it, last year yesterday I did my New Year Resolutions post and two of my resolutions were to do more lifestyle posts and go on more date nights with my boyfriend. So I’ve decided to merge the two and do ‘2013 Date Nights’.

Faye from Tales & Tea ingeniously came up with ‘2012 dates’ for her and her husband last year and as soon as I read the post I was eager to do it too. My boyfriend didn’t say no but he wasn’t exactly as excited as I was. But this year I’ve planned it properly and adapted Faye’s idea a little.

Now in a perfect world most nights would be date night, but unfortunately we’re people with dissertations and jobs and commitments and things that just get in the way. We’re lucky enough to be able to spend a lot of time together, so movie nights or TV marathons aren’t the issue. The lack of going out and spending the day having unadulterated fun is the issue.

We wrote down 12 things we’d never done before (or things we don’t do often!) and popped them in a hat bowl. My mum then picked them out of the bowl to decide what order we’d be doing them in throughout the year. The activities were things like spending the afternoon in an arcade, going to the London Aquarium, making kites and flying them in the park – just general fun things that we don’t really make time for.

Instructions for each monthly date night were put into envelopes and sealed, so we’ll be opening each envelope at the beginning of each month and setting aside one day to complete the activity. And obviously I’ll be sure to blog about each date night and let you know how we’re doing.

Since it’s just the 1st there’s still time to get involved, it’ll be nice to read about some other couples committing to 2013 date night!

Do you do ‘date nights’?

Aww, this is cute! Me and the ex used to do date nights/days out, I really like doing new and different things. One thing we used to do a lot is try out new restaurants, using voucher apps giving buy one get one frees/discounts on places. We're both foodies at heart, and managed to save money AND try new places!

This is SO cute Lola! I wish I could get my other half to agree to stuff like this - with us not driving it might not be easy though :(

This is such a great idea! I'm in a long distance relationship so this would help us actually do something when we finally get time alone together! x
