..Beyond “Netflix & Chill.” When you’re married, or in a long term relationship with someone, it can be easy to fall into a routine. Watch TV on the couch together. Maybe go out to eat and watch a movie- and that’s about it. Which is nice, in a way. It’s good to be comfortable with one another. But, it’s not good to stop trying! Maintaining a successful relationship requires effort! Never forget to romance each other. Plus, with the temperature cooling down and Fall weather creeping up, there are way more possibilities opening up for outdoor fun. That’s why I love this post by Jenn at the What You Make It blog. Here are some free/cheap date night ideas for any couple:
-Take a walk around your neighborhood or a local park
-Teach your spouse/partner one of your talents, and have them teach you one of theirs.
-Build a fire, make hot chocolate, and snuggle in for a cozy night.
-Write or draw something together.
-Do a workout together, look up videos on youtube.
-Raid your refrigerator and pantry, do a television-style food competition.
