I have a confession to make.
Hubby and I never dated before we were married.
Crazy, right? Now, before you begin thinking that Hubby and I married as complete strangers, let me give our little 'Boy Meets Girl' story in 10 simple steps:
1: Boy meets girl
2: Girl and Boy become friends, then best friends (...this continues for over a year)
3: Boy leaves for an internship in Texas
4: Girl stays behind and continues University
5: Boy receives job offer to work in Germany
6: Boy realizes he is madly in love with Girl
7: Boy buys ring and hops on an airplane to visit Girl
8: Boy takes Girl to the mountains, gets on one knee and pops the question
9: Girl says "Yes!"
10: Boy and Girl get married 3 months later
Bonus Step: Boy and Girl hop on airplane and move to Germany 2 days after
wedding (a little
Somewhere between when we met and when Hubby proposed, we fell in love. Because we were best friends we knew the good, the bad and the ugly in the other person and didn't want to live without it. Perhaps it was the time apart that allowed us to realize it. Since getting married, we have had fun "dating" each other as Husband and wife, but we have run into a problem:
We are running out of fresh, fun and romantic date ideas!
So, I thought I would put it out there for you all to see, hoping that you would have some wonderful tips or tricks on dates. A dating prescription, if you will.
When pitching ideas I ask that you please keep the following symptoms in mind:
- Dates cannot begin until after 7pm (bedtime for Little Man)
- We get around by bike
- Babysitters are nearly impossible to get as we don't live near family and all of our friends have small children of their own. The few babysitters available split their time between MANY families
-Due to the previous point, we will need more suggestions for 'Home-Dates' than for 'Going-Out-Dates'
Any websites, tips or tricks that you have to share would be greatly appreciated.
To get the ball rolling, here is a site that always has a few cute ideas. It's called Love Actually. I made their Valentine's Day Countdown which I LOVE and can be found HERE.
Thanks in advance for the prescription.
