No matter where you are in your relationship with that someone special, Dates are of the utmost importance!
You could be planning your first date, been dating several months or years or even married – regardless, DATE NIGHT is very important.
We ladies need our guys to ask us out and take charge by planning dates for us, just like when we use to date before we were married. I’ve been married for more than 25 years and still get all kinds of giddy when the Mr. calls me up and asks me out.
Ladies, your guy is still a boy at heart when it comes to things he loves, so sometimes we will have to do things that don’t interest us but they will absolutely love it!
The trouble is we all fall into a rut and usually when speaking of Date Night the answer is “whatever you want to do” and that can be frustrating.
This list is to help you think of dates on the fly. Some require little to no money and others will require some planning.
I’d love to have you leave your favorite date ideas in the comments below!
- Dinner and a movie
- Attend a play (Your local college will likely have great ones to choose from! Check them out)
- Go fishing

These are just a few to get you started!
Write down these and many others and put them in a jar and draw them out randomly!
What is your favorite date? What is your favorite first date? How often do you date?
PS – If you have small children at home, it is extremely important to still date. You’ll show your children that dating doesn’t end after marriage and when the children grow up and move out, you’ll keep doing what you’ve always done and that is date and love each other.
