When we first started a specific date night, hubby thought it was silly. But it has actually worked out extremely well! My family knows not to bother us at all on Saturday nights. And to not plan anything that would involve us. Of course, there are times, like Christmas day this year, that we have to change it.

It has also helped both of us to have one day set aside that we know we'll have time for each other. I know it gives me something to look forward to each week.

I wish we did, but our schedules are so different and we live just far enough away that it's impossible to have *one* night a week. When he's in town, we try our best to get together whenever we can.

We have dinner most Friday nights - sometimes just the two of sometimes as friends. Sexually we're like rabbits from Thur-Sun - well for 3 weeks per month its true. Honestly I'm pretty pleased - our activity is way up from a few years ago!

There's no "date night?" option... we're parents. We don't get out much these days lol. I miss dates though! We've tried the date night thing, but having a set one never worked out for us, schedule wise.

I feel your pain - we went through that as well. We lived away from family and die to budgetary issues we never had money for dinner and the sitter. Once the kids got old enough to become sitters - we finally got some time together - but it wasn't until they got out of HS that we made the 'date commitment'.

Our dates ended up being between the sheets - there are worse things to have happen!

Children are irrelevent to someone's ability/willingness to set aside a date night when things are hectic or schedules cross.

Date night here is when we can get a sitter. Usually falls on a Friday or Saturday night.

We don't really have a specific date night. We usually just go out whenever we have the same night off.

We don't have a specific date night, mostly because we're too busy to set anything in stone and our jobs require us to stay at home certain nights. It sounds like a fun idea, though!

We probably will have set date nights once we are all under the same roof. It would be the easiest way to maintain the intimacy with both relationships. I expect that the guys will have times when they do things together...like a shared hobby. We also set aside game nights for the kids and we all bowl. We would like to join a family league.
In a perfect world I'd like a night set aside for the three of us to be without kids and do something fun. Course then the week would have to have 12 days in it...

we try for something every few weeks and it just is a matter of what days we have open.

We don't have a set night because I am a pilot and my schedule is always changing. It just depends on what days I am home.

No set night, as well. My schedule is so unpredictable and my b/f travels. We just take advantage of any time we have...

Date night isn't the same from week to week. We usually decide simply based on what night is free.

Yep! Every Thursday night!

Unfortunately differing schedules don't allow for a regular date night However, when we do go and do something together, it makes it all the more special

It used to be every friday or saturday night. But with my work being so slow and the wife having to go back to work to help out with the bills, it is whenever we can find the time. It is easier to do when you know that you will be at work mon-fri until 3:30, and then home for the night. But we still try.

I wish. My man works a lot of hours and I've tried to plan dates or special nights in but sometimes he's just too tired. His exhaustion is directly proportionate to how many toys I now own!

I chose "Night is no longer a word to me" and Sunday. We have a standing date on Sunday afternoons. We head out around noon to a local German bar for football, a few drinks, brats w/ homemade sauerkraut and potato salad. It is nice to have it early in the day, that way when we come home there is plenty of time before bed for a bit of action . It's a great conclusion to our weekend and keeps us looking forward to it all week long.

No. I don't think I would like to have a specific night set. I realize that some couples with children and all have no choice but to plan a night, but we usually don't have kids overnight. They either go home at night or they stay home until the weekends and off days are here so we don't have to worry with that. Sometimes we get extra busy with the kid's ball games and my tanning and stuff and don't have much time, but I like it to be random. It seems more unpredictable and more hot that way

No, with both of our schedules plus our teenagers schedule there is no way, but we do try to make it at least once a week.

We don't have a set date night. We try to at least once a week get a date night together though, usually on a Friday or Saturday night. It depends on if we can get sitting for our son and whether our teen daughter is at home and such.

Thursdays used to be our date days simply because that was when we both had some free time, but now they've kinda filled up so I guess its time to try and find a new day.

We don't have a set night, but we go out on a date about once a week. Sometimes it's planned, and sometimes it's spontaneous.

We don't set a date night, but because he doesn't work, we just go out whenever I'm not too tired

We've discovered that planning romance is not a good idea for us. We end up feeling like it is something on a to do list, and at the end of a long day, I don't like being cranky on a date. If we keep it spontaneous, we tend to have boundless energy.
