Date Your Mate Month

Did you know May is Date Your Mate Month? Neither did we! But now that we know, we couldn’t be any more in love with the idea of a month dedicated to taking that time to do something special with your partner. It’s easy to get stuck in a routine when you’ve been dating someone for a while, and even more so when you’re married and/or living together! Most of the time, we’re happy just staying in and binge-watching our favourite shows together, and while that’s all well and good, it’s not exactly the most romantic of Friday nights…

Date Your Mate Month is all about rekindling that spark from your early dating days. Getting dressed up and doing something, just the two of you. It’s important to do that throughout the year, not just in one month, but it is a great place to start if you feel you and your partner are stuck in the same old routine.

We know how difficult it can sometimes be for you both the decide where you’re heading, so we’ve put together a list of date ideas for you to choose from (or do them all!).


Go to the arcade

Feel like big kids as you let loose and have a bit of easy fun. It doesn’t matter how old you are, you’ll both have a whale of a time trying to win tacky prizes and competing against each other.


Relive your first date

Go to the place you had your first date and relive all the moments/feelings you had back then. It will make you realise how far you’ve come and how much you couldn’t imagine them not in your life now.


Experience something new together

You’ve probably got a long history of ‘firsts’ together, but it might have been a while since you’ve both done something new. Why not take a flying lesson? Or try a cooking class together? You can support each other as you learn, and you’ll be creating lots of new memories.


Have a candlelit dinner at home

You’re probably so used to rushing dinner after a long day of work, and when you do actually sit down to eat, it’s normally in front of the TV. Make a point of cooking a 3 course meal together, and eat it at a set table with lit candles, and NO TV!


Get a couple’s massage

You both might be feeling a little tense and could do with some relaxation. Go for a couple’s massage and enjoy each other’s company in full relaxation mode.
