Yesterday was Valentine’s Day and countless couples went out for a night of fun and time together.
The reality though is that for many couples, the night did not go how they planned. Maybe the food wasn’t good, the conversation didn’t flow, they didn’t connect or worse, they had a fight.
Maybe sex was less than amazing.
If you do date night enough, you will eventually fight on it or it will not go according to your plan.
You can get angry.
Swear off date nights.
Yell at someone.
Or, you can try again.
Know that no matter what went wrong last night, you can move forward.
Maybe you couldn’t think of anything to say, you said the wrong thing, sex was not what you hoped it would be.
Life does not end because of one bad date night.
On the flipside of that, when date night does go wrong, that is a great opportunity to take inventory of your marriage and determine if something is going on underneath the surface of your marriage that caused it to go wrong.
You could also try again tonight, except do date night at home and see how it goes.
