Date night

20120615-213642.jpgI say, “Date night.”

Brian hears, “Unknown expectations.”

What I’m looking for– a special night set aside to connect and focus on our relationship.

What he hears– another night where just hanging out is not enough. She wants something special and he sometimes doesn’t know what.

This is still a work in progress. It was the topic of MUCH conversation today. We settled on a sushi dinner (yum!) and a favorite pub. That’s where we are now.

We’re definitely still working on the communication. Brian wants me to be explicit, while I want him to be creative and spontaneous (and sort of read my mind– let’s be honest…). But tonight has been wonderful.

We also currently have a bet on the table. High stakes. We’ll let you know how it goes 😉
