Lessons from a Tramp
(The following is a reprint of a post on the blog Singlemindedwomen.com.)
Why does it happen that when you’re dating someone, you stop going on dates?
My roommate recently commented that she is the one asking her boyfriend to go on dates, not the other way around. And when she does, she ends up planning most of it.
I understand that there is a certain spark lost after couples have been dating for awhile, but I also think it is important to make balance a priority. Those little dates, although they may seem unnecessary, keep the flame alive.
My advice to women looking to go out on these dates is to be as original as possible. Look for local dinner and a movie deals, do free things like attending museums. Not everything has to revolve around a $30 steak.
Sometimes it’s hard to find the time to make these dates happen, but everyday things can be romantic too.
Take a lesson from the Tramp–he managed to turn a makeshift dinner in an alley into an epic moment.
