Going out on "dates" with the SO
« on: April 28, 2006, 08:28:37 PM »
Trying to spice things up so this guy doesn't run away when I go psycho my 1L year.  We have a "date" tonight at a tapas bar. 

Does anyone else do this? 

I kind of dig actually going out, just the two of us sometimes.

I am also hoping to get a little action..... ::)

I thought everyone did this.  ???
And there is nothing you can do to make up for the psychoness of your first year. He's just going to have to deal with it.
Fortunately, I was always hard to deal with so it's not that different for him.

Sorry to be late to this one, ladies.

HLC, just about all of my friends in LTRs do this, so you are not alone! I've tried it... but it often feels kind of forced. I usually use the "we agreed to go on dates, remember?" line on my BF when I want him to go somewhere with me he doesn't really want to go (ahem, salsa dancing.) It's good to make yourselves do something different once in a while. How was the date? Are you staying in the same city for LS? Or doing a ldr? I'm just being nosy, I guess.

if you want to "get a little action", all you have to do is allow it happen.. sheesh

I'm having a bad day, but I laughed at this one. Just wait 10 years, Bender.

dates with the SO are a necessity! we do it all the time. Honestly, the boy isn't as excited about it in general, or I guess just doesn't see the need for it... but for me, it's a MUST. It just is this stupid way to make something feel special, and after three years, it's helped keep things exciting. We still feel like we're dating and that's fantastic (and hopefully what's going to help carry us through LS)... we'll see each other a lot less during LS, so it's gotta be quality time, which means "dating" and well, the other stuff, too  :o

it's nice to go out to a restaurant and maybe an event (movie/play/music performance, etc).

i'd be pretty irked if i was in a relationship where we never did stuff like this.

finding new restaurants, or just having a picnic in the park together, is what helps keep a relationship fresh.

not that there's anything wrong with crashing on the couch, popping open a brew, and watching the daily show or anything like that.

that's funny you mention that... a lot of the time our "dates" are just hanging around the house watching sports or playing dorky games. in fact today we sat in the sun, drank some brews on ghetto folding chairs, and ordered chinese delivery, it was a fabulous day, capped off with some basketball now that it's getting chilly with the sun down... a perfect date :)
