My fiancé and I work completely opposite schedules. He works nights, and his work week starts just as mine ends, so we don’t always have time to go on dates. We usually try to go out for lunch at the very least, during one of our weekends. Thankfully this fall he will switch to having normal weekends off, because I’m starting to go crazy lol
Sometimes, but right now it’s hard because it’s tax season so he’s working long hours and we are also trying to save up for the wedding and potentially a down payment in a new house so we aren’t going out much currently
Maybe like once a month. Its difficult for us, I have an 11 year old son that I feel bad leaving behind
We try to get out of the house just the two of us each weekend. Lately we’ve been taking the kids out of town with us on mini family getaways and work has been busy so we’ve not had much of that me time. Our “date nights” are usually grabbing some dinner and then roaming around Goodwill and Ross. Lol. We rarely actually make plans to see a movie or make reservations.
We try to carve out at least some time 1 day per week to get out of the house to do something, sometimes its more like an actual date night (ie: bowling, golfing, a sporting event, carnival, movie and dinner etc.) and sometimes its just a trip to the store where we spend more time goofing around than actually shopping.
Weekends have been our "date nights"... or days! Nothing formal as often as I would like, but we incorporated date money into our budget where we will both contribute $25 each per week to put towards an awesome date!
Sometimes! We both travel a lot for work and are super busy so we’re very intentional about scheduling date nights for when we’re both in town and well-rested. Otherwise they seem obligatory rather than fun and special!
