Until about a fortnight ago, Steve and I hadn’t been on a proper date together for nearly eight years – unless you count getting away from Jack for one night when we went to the fantastic murder mystery night last year. How bad is that? We do grab a takeaway and watch a film at home together sometimes but we really don’t make enough time for ourselves. So we have decided to have regular date nights. Whether that is to the cinema like we did recently or just popping out for a bite to eat without the kids, it is important to make some time for just the two of us.
I’ll admit – we have probably forgot how to ‘do date nights’ – its been so long. Since we first got together, the dating scene has changed so much. There’s Central dating, there’s Humberside dating and even Ipswich dating now – no matter where you are, there is bound to be a local dating site for your area. Back when I was last single, there was only a select few dating sites around and you’d have to really narrow down your search to find people in your local area. Dating was dinner and a movie. Now you can do all manners of crazy things on dates.
I sound so old saying this, yet I am only 27. But it is tantamount to just how much the dating scene – and life in general – has changed since I was 19. Whilst I met Steve offline at my local pub (I worked in one, he worked in the one next door), me and my friends had tried our hand at online dating before and there really wasn’t much to say about it – it was just average. With the introduction of sites like Torquay dating and Gwent dating, there is no chance of you not meeting someone from your area and going out on a unique and crazy date.
Whilst Steve and I generally stick to dinner and a movie, it would be nice to try something a little different. Making time for the two of us is something that we have decided is of the utmost importance and I’m sure that doing the same thing may get boring after a while. So what ideas have you got for a date? We need some ideas!
