Date Night...At Home

Contributor: PropertyOfPotter PropertyOfPotter
I have a really busy family, having three kids and a husband that works full time doesn't exactly give us a lot of chances to go out without the children coming along with us. When the kids are in bed and we're both home, we usually just end up watching movies and not really spending much time together. We used to play games together, but don't do that very often any longer.

I'm kind of at a loss of what we can do to spend time together and nurture the relationship we have.

Any ideas? They can be big special plans, or something simple for every day. They don't need to be sexual at all either, just something we can do together.

C and I don't have kids yet, but we do have date nights in. We cook together. We watch some documentary or TED Talk that gets us discussing things. We sit on the balcony with the string lights on (decorated around his table up there), and drink wine while talking about the wedding. We do yoga together (me using the Wii and him mirroring). We also get bees in our bonnets about some factoid trivia and search through movies or songs or whatever to prove who's right.

Chilipepper has great ideas! When money is tight or you just don't have enough time, there is still so much you can do. Cooking together is a really good one. Sitting around and just talking with your drink of choice. The list is endless!

One really cheesy thing I really like is playing board games. It allows you to do something so you're not just sitting there doing nothing. Conversation usually just happens. If playing games is something you 2 enjoyed doing together, why not do that again?

My boyfriend and I have been dancing tango for a couple years so we practice in the kitchen every night. My mom's been telling me that she and dad do the same with the waltz class they just finished.

We try to have sex everyday. Other topics include business, politics, kids, life stuff. We have played cards, read books or sat and just talked.

Taking a walk together and talking. Just having a bit of time to focus on each other is always good.

Having one night a week where you have a few hours with no TV, internet or phone.

Doing something silly and unexpected. One time he started a water fight. It started innocent enough with a little flick of water from his glass. We ended up drenched and so was the kitchen but it was lots of fun.

We also play a question game. He asks a question then I do, we each have to answer the question. It could be serious (what is your biggest regret or biggest accomplishment?) It can be sexual (tell me about a dream or fantasy) or it can be completely random (what is your favorite flavor jellybean?)
