Of course, once you carve out time, you then have to decide what to do and where to do it. Here again, the National Marriage Project gives a decent piece of advice: Do something new. Doing the same thing that you always do on your dates may not be enough to reap the benefits of a date. Instead, doing something that is out of the ordinary (though not necessarily extraordinary) is essential to breaking down the boring sameness of our typical routine. Play miniature golf, go for a walk in the park, ballroom dance, or visit a museum. As long as it breaks the typical routine, is fun and active, and is something that both you and your partner enjoy, you may reap the full benefits of your date. After all, what else can help us to remember the start of our relationships than the thoughtful planning of time with our partners?
