Newsflash: Couple Dates Each Other, Finds It’s Good For Relationship

I just found this article in The Sun about a couple who took on a one-month date night challenge (sounds suspiciously familiar) only to find that dating each other once a week was – GASP – good for their relationship!

Okay, I’ll stop being snarky now.

Because it’s great.

It really is great that we have yet another solid testimonial for our date night philosophy.

Before their date night adventure started, Tracy said she “honestly can’t remember the last time Russ and I even had a proper conversation. We are like zombies on autopilot.”

The couple are only in their twenties and seven months into their marriage, but unfortunately as we all know it doesn’t take long for things to get a little stale. They have two children together and they put all their energy into making the kids happy.

But guess what?

If Mum and Dad aren’t getting along, the kids aren’t happy either.

Dubious as they were that it would help, once Russ and Tracy had done a picnic, a dinner date, cooked dinner at home and gone to a salsa class, they had sufficiently rekindled their connection to the point where they were talking, laughing, having great sex again and have even started planning their next night out.

The article is a good read, you can see it here.

So what will it take for you to give date night a whirl? Does a one month challenge sound too intimidating?

What have you got to lose?
