QUESTION: For people in long term relationships (1 year+)

Do you still go on dates? I'm not saying 200 dollar dinners every week, but do you still make time for each other? to do stuff that's just the two of you?

  1. Yeah, sometimes it takes some nagging though.

  2. Isn't that the point of long-term relationships? To make and spend time with someone that you like/love?

    For me, things we do is cook together, watch television shows before bed, small dates (Burger King), or just play around (tickle wars, truth or dare, wrestling, etc.)

  6. Never gone on a "date". Neither one of us likes going out. Date night is making dinner at home with each other. Cheaper, healthier, better company. So it's sort of a date, but most people wouldn't think so.

  7. Sometimes we book off our nights, no homework and no commitments, just a couple of beers and a great card game (+3 years)

  8. Not all relationships are the same OP - it shouldn't matter if you go on dates or not but whether or not you and your partner are happy.

  9. We don't really go in like super fancy dates that I hear about some couples going on in the start of a new relationship. However, we do make time to go out to dinner with each other and just hang out playing video games/watching t.v.

  10. We'll go out for dinner and movies and stuff together, but it's not really a "date" , it's just more like we both feel like going out for dinner or feel like going to a movie. We live together though, and we spend a lot of time alone together. We also both prefer staying in and relaxing. He plays video games while I read or reddit, or we study our different courses in the same room.

    Idl we don't really go on official "dates" I guess, but we never really went on crazy dates in the beginning of our relationship either, we were friends who started dating.

    Will be 3 years Jan 1st.

  12. Seems obvious that OP wants their SO to step up their game.

  13. We've been going out for almost four years. We do go on dates every so often. Dinner, movies, we did apple picking and Ripley's aquarium and all that lame stuff. On special occasions, we'll usually do the big expensive dates. A fancy restaurant here and there ..

  14. Yes but, after you've been in a relationship for a while, they don't really feel like "dates." They're just things that you do together. We go to the park, the movies, out for dinner, etc. It just lacks the stress and nervous butterflies of a date. It's more comfortable and it's all about doing new things (not getting to know one another).
