Are You in a Date Night Rut??

When did dating get so hard?

I used to think that navigating the waters of singledom before meeting my husband was tricky, but now it doesn’t seem as complicated as figuring out a date night when kids are a factor. I love that we get to do so many amazing things as a family, but it’s not the same as getting that one-on-one time. Often times, it’s challenging to carve out that space.

I will admit, we’re not the best at date nights. On the occasions we do find ourselves kid-free for an evening we almost always fall back on our standard of dinner and a movie. Not terrible, but it does feel like a rut.

All this summer, we here at Grand Rapids Kids are partnering with BIGGBY of West MI to help get parents out of their date night ruts, and brew up some titillating, new ideas for romance by sending a few lucky couples on MYSTERY DATES in West Michigan.

We Love Giving Away FUN

We’ve given away swag. We’ve given away tickets to shows. We’ve even given away weekend staycations. Now, we’re giving away something completely new: a Mystery Date Night!

Even more fun than a 1965 board game, part of this exciting series is that we want to send some couples on date nights they won’t forget.

We are putting together some super fun date nights that we want YOU to embark on. So leave the kids at home, let your sense of adventure loose, and get ready for a night of reconnecting with your loved one as you let us set the itinerary (and pick up the tab) for an evening of romance.
