Any Suggestions for Date Night?


Eating out is always a pleasure.

Have you ever had this conversation with your beloved?

“What do you want to do?”

“I don’t know. What do you want to do?”

“I don’t know …”

Oh, yeah! If you’re married or dating, you know exactly what I mean.

John Maxwell said, “The wisdom of the group is greater than that of any individual” or at least something close to that.

I write about community and recognize its power for good. In this case, the power to pass on some great date-night ideas.

So as I prepare for a weekend with my beloved, I’m curious. What would you suggest we do in small town America?

P. S. With Thanksgiving approaching, I have two excellent suggestions to enjoy with family and/or friends. I’ll post them early next week.

Dark Eyes, Deep Eyes

Two men. Two eternal destinies.

One common hope.

A poignant and compelling portrayal of heaven and hell, with a powerful look at redemption from the perspective of both the lost…and the saved. Well done!–Susan May Warren, best-selling, award-winning author of You Don’t Know Me.

“Dark Eyes, Deep Eyes” was a compelling read for me. The vivid descriptions challenged and ignited my imagination. Tom skillfully laid out a clever story that caused me to think and made me want to read to the end.–Ron Fruit GM, WRCO Radio

About tnealtarver

I've traveled and spoken around the world but always love to come home. There I eat exceptional meals, drink coffee to my heart's content, and get loved like nowhere else on earth. I believe a community centered in Christ should be all that and so much more.

    I will just tell you what my husband and I do when we get chances like that. We sit at a coffee shop and chat, we walk around the mall or some store and chat and sort of look at stuff too. We have dinner out and chat. We play Scrabble. If there’s something historical or scenic, we visit that. We just tend to do very simple activities that allow us time to chat first about what we need to, then about what we haven’t gotten to, and then we talk about things we didn’t realize we wanted to talk about. Sometimes, we just enjoy being together walking. Maybe not very exciting for some, but truly some of my favorite times in all of my life.

      We lounged in bed and watched an old movie (not 40’s/50’s but 1988). I believe Ellen’s comment was “Well, there’s two hours I’ll never get back.” 🙂

      It was nice to snuggle though.

      We plan on going to a local restaurant (a small step above McDonald’s) tomorrow to write/edit, eat, and talk.

    Nothing like a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate at the local coffee shop.

    Thanks for the mention today!

    How about deer hunting? That is what I did for 2 days with my man! And yes, I survived all the walking and you know what, even when I couldn’t keep up and he had to stop and wait there was no complaining. Got to love that. and the brothers were great about it as well! He’s been gone less than 3 hours for 3 days and I miss him already.
