7 Tips For Dating Your Wife
It’s easy to fall in the routine of waking up, going to work, coming home, eating, watching TV and falling asleep, barely noticing your significant other, maybe even easier after years of marriage.
Incorporating a regular “date night” will not only liven things up between you and your wife, but it just might be the glue that holds your marriage together.
A date night doesn’t have to be anything extravagant, but you must focus on the details. That being said, don’t forget these dating tips when you take your wife out.
#1. You Make The Plans
Yes, that means everything from the reservation to the babysitter. Your wife probably feels like she is the one stuck organizing everything all the time.
So take this off her shoulders. She’ll not only be relieved, but impressed. Pick her favorite restaurant or one of her favorite activities and she’ll be thrilled you took the time to think of it.
#2. Dress To Impress
It’s no secret that anyone in a long-term relationship tends to let themselves go a little here and there. Women may start to wear less makeup or dress more comfortably, while the men may pack on a few pounds.
Whatever it may be, toss it for the date night. Shave, spray on some cologne and dawn something snazzy. You’re about to go out with the woman of your dreams.
#3. Surprise Her!
Who doesn’t like surprises? Everyone loves surprise gifts, especially your wife. You don’t have to shower her with something fancy or expensive, but do focus on the details.
Maybe daisies were part of her bridal bouquet; bring her those. Or her favorite author just wrote a new novel; surprise her with that book. Even something as simple as a quick note will make an impact. She’ll be touched you remembered and that you listened and that you took the extra step. No matter which you choose, you’ll make her day – and her night.
#4. Open Her Door
Chivalry doesn’t have to be dead. Make the extra effort to open the door for her or pull out her chair. She won’t expect it. She’ll be flattered. And it will make her feel even more special.
#5. Make Meaningful Conversation
Avoid the day-to-day topics about work or the mundane, “How was your day?” Ask her meaningful questions. Ask about her interests. What has sparked her curiosity lately? And what can you share?
Make plans together. Remember how you wooed her in the first place. What did you talk about? What did you tell her? Use that. And above all, listen.
#6. Compliment Her
Take a good look at your wife. See what she is wearing. Notice the detail and the time she put in to making the outfit match, doing her hair and finding the right accessories. Tell her she is beautiful and highlight the little things you love about her. Watch her blush.
#7. Look Into Her Eyes
Tell her you love her. Tell her you appreciate her. Tell her how grateful you are that she is in your life. But most importantly, look into her eyes when you do it, watch them light up and sparkle.
Don’t forget that communication means so much more when you incorporate eye contact – and that type of communication is paramount to the relationship.
