Are you wondering why are we talking date night ideas for couples when self-care should be about you?

Hear me out.

I want you to think about this.

Are you really connected with your partner? Are you missing having dinner with each other, or even a conversation that isn’t interrupted by one of the kids or a gadget?

So many of us really miss our partners even though we live with them.

So I encourage you to arrange a date night this week as it’ll help with your self care.

Date nights will make your heart skip a beat, remind yourself why you fell in love and not to mention, I read a quote a few weeks ago and it was said “Date night is cheaper than a divorce.”

So true, but yet we don’t do it.
