Ways to Make Time for a Date Night:

  • Don’t be afraid to ask a trusted family member or friend to babysit. If they have kids of their own, you can offer to return the favor. For new babysitters, here is a handy checklist you can use.
  • Schedule the date in your calendar (in BOTH your calendars) and plan ahead to set time aside for each other.
  • Plan where you’re going and what you’re going to do so that you have your plan set before you go out (buy tickets to a show in advance, make reservations at a restaurant, etc.).
  • Plan to arrive to your date destination early because something always seems to come up while you’re getting ready to leave.
  • Make each other a promise to follow through with plans. If plans often get canceled, it can be difficult to find the motivation to keep planning dates for each other.
  • If you have kids, make sure everything is planned for their evening as well (supper, activities, etc.) so that you have less to take care of while you’re trying to get ready (the babysitter will be thankful for your planning as well!).

  1. I just posted about date nights too! Too funny. 🙂 We’ve tried to swap babysitting with other couples with kids but so far that hasn’t really worked out for us, though I know other families for whom it works great (and saves money on babysitting!). I think our last date was going to Les Mis and then supper after; it was nice. We’re so busy that we really need to work at putting time our schedules to connect (without kids interrupting!) so I should work at planning more date nights. My tip: take turns planning the date night! Sometimes I get tired of calling the babysitter every time we go out. 🙂

  2. Great post! Perfect for Valentine’s Day! My Bff and I work on this by exchanging date nights. One night she will go out with her hubby and I’ll watch her children free of charge and another night we will switch. Its nice to know there isn’t the added cost of a babysitter on top of the date, and you know that they are well taken care of!

  3. This is so important. My wife and I finally starting having regular date nights after 2.5 years of nothing. It’s been a great addition to our marriage and I think everyone needs to recognize that nothing is more important than making time for themselves.
