Step One: Set a date.

Step Two: Create the perfect outfit for your evening out.
This is an important step because how you dress can affect how much fun and how comfortable you are on your night out! Start with selecting colors that go well together, like black and white or red and pink. Then choose clothes in different textures to add interest and detail to your simple outfits- think lace, sequins, velvet, or leather jackets over dresses. The possibilities are endless!
Step Three: Select a restaurant
Select a restaurant near where they live (or where you will be) – preferably one that offers valet parking, so both of you don’t have to worry about driving when it’s time to leave. If neither of them lives close by, take turns driving to each other’s place.
Step Four: Select a dinner spot
Select a dinner spot that has both tables for two and larger tables (if you have kids). Avoid high-end restaurants with dress codes because they may be too formal or intimidating. Plus, how do you plan on getting the food in your mouth when wearing a tie?
Step Five: Plan some things to talk
Plan some things to talk about – whether it is current events or sharing something from their childhood! The goal of this step is not only to get them talking but also to find out what topics they are passionate about so you can start planning more activities around these interests. Who knows how many hours of conversation could come up just from asking, “what was the best day ever?”
Step Six: Plan some activities to do after dinner
Plan some activities to do after dinner – whether it is a walk in the park or just sitting on their front porch and talking. The point of this step is to eventually work up from holding hands across the table, leaning toward each other with your heads together at one end of the booth so you can whisper without being overheard by those near you, and finally, how about a kiss?
Step Seven: Wear best clothes
Have an idea for how long they should wear their best clothes if there are any plans afterward, such as going out dancing. It’s important that both people dress appropriately but also don’t spend too much time getting ready because who wants to sit around waiting for someone else when they could be having fun! What would happen if one of them changes their mind and doesn’t want to go out? How long should the other person wait before they give up?
Step eight: Plan a way back
Plan a way back! Whether it is by taxi or car service, make sure there is some sort of public transportation that will take them back if neither has access to a vehicle because no one wants an awkward walk home at the end of their night together.
If money isn’t really an issue, then why not splurge on something special as part of your date? Perhaps tickets for a concert where both can enjoy themselves without worrying about how much time it takes away from getting ready later, or how about tickets to go see some sort of play?
Step nine: Make sure you plan how long the night will be
Make sure you plan how long the night will be – especially if there are kids involved. You don’t want them to get up in the morning and find out that their parents went on a date at 11 pm without saying goodnight!
Step ten: Figure out how to get back home from the date. This is especially important for those who live hours away and have children at home.
How to plan a date night at home
No need to go out for date night when you can have an intimate dinner together at home. Bring your loved one around the table with a bottle of wine so that romantics will be in full swing during this special time! A delicious meal is not required, but it does make everything more enjoyable and adds some variety if desired. For dessert, try something sweet like homemade chocolate chip cookies or tiramisu cake – all good choices that are sure to leave them wanting more!

How to plan a romantic date night
A romantic date night is an important part of any relationship. Start with a non-alcoholic drink to set the mood, and then share your favorite meal together in order to give each other full attention while eating. You can have dessert afterward if you want! If it’s cold outside, be sure that there are extra blankets for snuggling up next to one another on the couch after dinner or watch some Netflix; otherwise, go see a movie at your local theater and grab coffee afterward before driving home where they may cook their specialty dish from scratch just for you – Wowza!!
