But want can you do on a date night, and how can you keep things fresh, different and fun? Take a look at this list of date night ideas and revitalise your relationship this weekend!
Instead of lying aimlessly on the sofa this weekend, why ot head out for a nice long bike ride? Exercise is a great way to bond with your partner; the release of endorphins can lead to a heightened happiness during your cycle. Plus, you can always stop off at the pub during your bike ride!

Top Tip: try heading further afield on a walk that you haven't been on before. Part of what makes date night so special is the fact that you get to try new things with your partner!
If you and your partner are used to spending you Friday nights watching the same old television programmes then it may just be time for you to change it up a little bit. Watch the other person’s favourite film and get in some great snacks! Make sure you watch something a little different, pop on the candles and have a nice snuggle!
If you and your partner are feeling a little less romantic recently then it may just be time that you wine and dine one another. Head out to a restaurant that you have both never been to before and indulge in a nice bit of food and a shared bottle of red. You’ll be rekindling that romance before you know it!
While ordering a takeaway on a Friday night might be the routine, it may just be time that you started cooking with your partner. Making something fun and messy, like tacos or cupcakes, can be a really fun and romantic experience. Especially if you turn on the music and start sipping some wine!
