PRIORITISE DATE NIGHTS
With so many things going on in their daily lives, couples sometimes forget to pause and check in with each other, says Anthea Nagoor, a counselling director at nonprofit organisation Focus on the Family Africa.
“Plan and discuss which night in the week should be date night so you’re both aware of it and free for that evening,” she advises.
Don’t spring a date night on your partner then be upset if they aren’t that keen. Remember, you’re in this together so planning makes perfect. And stick to your date nights – don’t look for excuses. Cancel only if you absolutely have to, and then make another date as soon as possible.
