Date nights are essential no matter how long you’ve been together. Many couples we meet and talk to realize they are neglecting their relationships. They want to do something about it, but don’t always know the first place to start.
Couples with young children are at highest risk of this. It’s a lot of work to find a babysitter and get out of the house. Not to mention if you you’ve worked all day and still have to take care of the kids, a date night might just sound like another chore and be exhausting too!
Many people also believe that a “date night” has to be an extravagance or expensive. I’m here to tell you date nights are a must for a fulfilling successful relationship and a lot less expensive than divorce.
Our motto at Surprise Date Challenge… Have Fun! Therapist, Dr. Lisa Gold says most of her clients are not having enough fun in their marriage. We can all get caught up in the chaos of life and neglect our most important relationship; the partnership with our significant other.
In most relationship studies, romantic love dwindles over time and we lose the butterflies we once had in the beginning. The common held belief is that this is inevitable in long-term relationships. The good news is that there is hope and Surprise Date Challenge can help!
In a relationship study, it was determined that novelty, or trying new things can create the chemical surges of courtship. A group of middle-aged couples were given tests regarding the satisfaction of their relationship. Part of the group was told to spend time together once a week doing pleasant familiar things they would normally do together like dinner and a movie. Another group was told to do more exciting and adventurous things that they both were interested in but normally would not do.
The study ran for 10 weeks and the couples re-took the test regarding the satisfaction of their relationship. The first group saw little or no change but the group that had the more exciting date nights had significant increases in the satisfaction of their relationships.
This is why we recommend the 90-Day Surprise Date Challenge. It’s simple, straightforward and easy to integrate into your busy life. Simply commit to planning one surprise date once a month for your partner. A total of just two dates every month and the best part is the surprise for not only the one planning the SDC, but for your partner receiving it. I always have butterflies in anticipation of what our adventure for the day or evening will be. It also fills up the love bank account knowing that my partner has taken the time and made the effort to plan a special date just for me.
