Why is it when couples get married (or they have been together a while) they seem to loose the passion in their relationship???? I mean, sure you already got the person you love and want to be with for the rest of your life, but does that mean you stop showing them how special the are to you. You want to know where I’m headed with this???
OKAYYYYYYYYY I’LL LET YOU ALL IN ON MARK’S AND I KEY TO SUCCESS!!!!
Mark and I work different times and during the week it’s hard for us to spend quality time together, so for us, a weekly or monthly date night is highly important. Life can really get to me and stress me out, and then, I began to feel unattractive, unloved, and undervalued. I then began to take it all out on Mark.
Yes!!! I said it…..don’t act like, I’m the only one. For me, date night is the one night when I don’t have to worry (or stress) about what I’m going to make for dinner. And it’s the night during the week, when I can get all dolled up and spend some adult time with my man. I get to feel the love he has for me, and I get to see him look at me with those, big, beautiful brown eyes, and know he loves what he sees.
However, what I enjoy most about date night, is the fact, that I get to fall in love all over again with Mark. I think back to our first (real) date, and the fun and excitement we had. And I have never told him this, but I fell in love with him that night, but was afraid to tell him. So when we have date night, I always get those same feelings when I look at him, and realize how important he is to me, and how I wouldn’t want to live without him. And when I focus on those feelings, any disagreements we have doesn’t seem to matter.
So you guys, having a routine date night, is extremely important to keeping a healthy relationship. Because instead of focusing on the bad times or feeling like the romance is gone out of your relationship; date night allows you to continue to feed the passion in your marriage, remember why you fell in love with one another, and connect again with each other.
I have reached out to Mark and I favorite date night places, and I’m trying to get somethings set up, for you guys, that will help you incorporate date night into your busy lives….. I can’t wait to tell you guys, more about it when that time comes.
In the mean time, I have a request, sit down with your special someone and go over your schedule during the week days, and either in the comments below or shoot me an e-mail, let me know, what two days, would be best for a date night.
For Mark and I it would be Wednesdays or Thursdays…..
Until then, keep the passion alive,
