A perfect date night involves finding a balance between what he loves and what she loves. A delicious meal ranks high among men and women which means cooking is the easy part. Coming up with a unique activity that appeals to both parties is a bit more challenging. Try suggesting a game of poker, something he likely enjoys, but instead of chips, create coupons for tasks or activities. For example, create a card that relinquishes you of dish duty or laundry duty or a card that says the person who loses has to plan the next date night, go on an ice cream run or give up control of the remote. Add in some romantic tasks like back massages and candlelit baths and your date night activity can give you things to do for weeks. Be creative and have fun with the process. Since you each will get the chance to create the cards, there will be a mix of things you both love. A personalized game is a great way to connect, and the fact that he scored dish duty for the week will leave you begging for the next poker night.
Just because poker night generally involves chips and beer doesn't mean you have to serve that during date night. This Eggplant Caprese Salad is easy enough that it won't take up your whole evening. It can be served as an appetizer or as the meal. Pair with a fruity red Italian wine such as Chianti.
