  • Sometimes a date night refers to a regular day of the week you always meet. But also a date night usually means more than hang out casual and a nicer or different than meeting everyone at the same places. Maybe dinner and a movie. Dinner and romantic walk on beach or romantic overlook. I like after non beaches or boating and then dinner. Usually some private time comes at the end of the day. Play, good concert and other nice than hanging out. Just took my gal to see the Michael Buble and late dinner. That was a date date for us.

  • Just about any activity that you have planned ahead of time. If it's just the two of you, movies, bowling, dinner, croquet, pulling weeds, just plain cuddling with some take-out- any of these could be a date night.

  • spending romantic time with another person. The activity isn't that important. How you feel and the amount of eye contact, maybe light (or not) pettting (ie kissing, holding hands, ) amount of laughter, these are the things that make a date. Either you are both enjoying the time in which case it is good or one or more is faking and that is not good. Living in the moment with another person allows for intimacy, connection, and desire.

  • I don't think it matters what you're doing with your SO. You could be going out dancing, going to see a movie, going out to dinner, having a picnic, going stargazing, building a blanket fort at home, whatever. What makes a date night a "date night", in my opinion, is that there is quality time spent free from distractions and there's good conversation happening, there's bonding. It's just about taking time for each other and being completely present.

  • All of or any of those things. It's a his and her outing together.
    Don't make it complicated. It's a great exercise for long term couples to re-connect. Especially after bearing children, or if they've drifted apart, or not connecting in a way either would expect.

  • It's definitely not doing anything "without the kids" since I don't have any and don't want any. I guess it's going out to one of our more favored restaurants and then coming back to cuddle and relax over TV while sipping some drinks together. Maybe sex later.

  • Im assuming this is referencing a couple who have to set aside time brcause of busy lives and children.
    In that case any time alone with ond another is a date night. We always planned them but they usuakky fell through. When they actually happdned we were like" damn. What do we do? Lol

  • Dressed up nicely, going to a place with ambience we both like. Lots of time not caring about the fucking world. Leaving the place, getting naked, making the fucky-sucky. Going home. Those last three in any order.

  • It could be any of these, (except the lunch; night implies after sunset) but mostly it means a deliberate setting aside of cares and concerns outside the two of you.

  • Going out just the 2 of you to be alone together.

    It doesn't matter where you go as long as you get to talk and be with just each other, no kids, no friends, just the two of us

    Sometimes it is a movie

    A dinner at Arctic Circle with a bag of burgers and $1 drink from McDonald's

    A fancy dinner at a sushi place

    Being alone together is all That matters

  • Anything can be a date depending on the execution in my opinion. My man and I smoke weed daily but weed can make a night a date night if he came home with dinner and edibles instead of just the regular ole weed. Going to McDonald's isn't a date but getting McDonald's and driving into the woods and sitting on the hood listening to music and talking is a date.

  • Not the movies, I like a guy who is creative as in he asks me where I prefer to go for a date and come up with an idea. It doesn’t matter what it is but asking me to find a place or figure it out is a huge turn off. Being romantic is key.

  • It depends on the couple and the situation.

    I usually class date night as a meal out, and/or more.

    That said if we have a “casual night” it’s usually at home, with a film and a takeaway and the cat. Both are good but really depend on mood!

  • Whatever you want to do with your partner on that night, the important is that you're able to have a nice time together. It could be something casual like taking a walk on the park, dinner, or something more romantic and intimate.
