Every night's a date for us! LOL j/k

Since we don't have kids, we don't have to consciously plan our date nights like some couples. We typically go out for dinner once a week during the week and occasionally on the weekend to celebrate a special occasion.

LOL RoseAnn,
Kind of nice that way
Love to hear you go out once a week for dinner .. what a nice way to break up the week too I imagine.
Celebrating those special occasions is always a great excuse as well :)

I voted "It Depends..." Because DH is a full-time student, and does not receive financial aid right now, our budget is very tight. We rarely have money to go out and do things, but when we do, we generally go out to breakfast or lunch. To celebrate special occasions, we cook a nice meal at home. We do have take-out pizza every Friday night, which we consider a date night, since it has become a tradition.

Those traditions are the best Carol,
As is I bet that pizza too.
I think a *date* doesn't have to be going out per se .. just doing something together.
Sounds like you & DH do just that :)

I put depends bc we have lots of "date nights" at home. The other day DH just grabbed me and we were dancing in the living room to Old MacDonald had a farm. Then we stayed up and talked all night...the way we did when we were falling in love. That "feels" like a date.

But getting out is a lot less bc of me. I tend to use up valuable babysitting time playing hockey...but we still get out a least once month. Sometimes more. My mother will be in town for easter so we may get 2 dates in the 4 days she is here...

How fun on the dancing to Old MacDonald .. I think that is great as was the staying up all night talking,
Sometimes those at home dates are better than the going out ones, LOL
That will be nice though when your Mom is there & you can go out for one too :)

DH and I are both insanely busy (with kids and work) so we're lucky to get out once a month for a date.

As your kids get older yes you will *date* more often,
For now that is good at least once a month :)
