52 free things to do with your partner on a date night

One of the things that works to keep relationships alive is spending quality time with each other. In these days of the information age, it is increasingly difficult to find the time needed to nurture our relationships. With long hours at work, helping the kids with their homework, driving them to their extracurricular activities, cooking dinner, cleaning, and following the bedtime routine, what time is left?

Unless you orchestrate time for your relationship, other less important things will pile up and take up what precious little time you do have. Pick a night that is “date night” with your significant other and make a game of being as creative as possible. Try to see how many things you can do without spending money.

To get you started, I’ve laid out a few suggestions to help you through the coming year. What follows are 52 ideas on how to spend creative time together without spending any money. Feel free to add or modify any of the items on the list to suit your particular relationship and circumstances.

Now you have 52 suggestions of things to do with your partner for each week of the year divided by season. You certainly don’t have to follow my suggestions. Feel free to add your own or repeat your favorites as often as you like.

The main point is not to see how kinky you can get. The idea is to keep your relationship alive by making time together a priority. It is important that you find things to do as a couple that both of you can enjoy. If you have very different interests, you can enter this in the spirit of taking turns and everyone happily agrees to participate in the activity chosen by the one who has the turn that week.

As long as you make a habit of making your relationship a priority and taking time each week to rejuvenate the feelings that attracted you in the first place, then you have a good chance of staying together for the long haul.

Please don’t let creeping boredom enter your relationship through the back door. This is what frequently happens when we are busy putting other things ahead of our time for others. You know what I mean: work, children, our friend in crisis, etc. There will always be a competing interest for the time you have set aside for each other.

Aside from natural disasters, death threats, or major crises, don’t let any outside force invade your time together. Be sure to create opportunities for them to do things together without outside influence. With over 50% of marriages today ending in divorce, make this small investment in the longevity of your relationship. You have nothing to lose and much to win. What’s stopping you? Start today.
