Marriage | Date Nights Gone Wrong
When I started this marriage column, I wanted it to be honest. So we’ve talked about our perfect date night, but what about the imperfect? Cause we all know it happens, right?
My last date night with Dave ended rather poorly. Things started out great. We had actually gone out—in contrast to our typical date night involving take out and movie watching on the couch. We laughed over drinks and then we sat down at our table.
But then the conversation turned unexpectedly—some silly disagreement I’m sure, like who starred in some obscure tv show or movie. It just kind of snowballed from there. Were we tired? Probably. Were our expectations too high? Maybe. Were we carrying around some petty resentment (like who keeps leaving dirty dishes in the sink rather than put them in the empty dishwasher)? Who knows.
What I do know is this: it stinks when date night goes wrong.
What about you? Ever have a bad date with your partner?
