Being in a relationship for over 20 years, I can say that I am close to an expert when it comes to date night. I will pat myself on the back for this one because it’s not easy keeping it fresh. You really have to be creative and step outside the box to continue the adventure of falling in love with each other all over again on a night out (or in). Routine dates can get boring after awhile, so I’m here to give you some ideas for switching it up. I myself have not tried all of these ideas and all of these suggestions may not work for every couple. My hope is that this list will help spark the connection between you and your partner as you find the right date night for you. Let’s jump on!

Everyone has a different point of view and everyone has their own taste. So what one man likes in a woman, another man will not find those attributes to be high on their list of desires from a woman. Even still, the chemistry that brings us together aside from physical attraction includes behavior and attitude. It’s normal to aim for all three, but there are men out there who are satisfied with just the physical component. So when it comes down to it, physical attributes typically do matter for guys.
