The Ultimate Guide to Date Night

A new survey has revealed that a third of British couples never set aside time for a date night together, although half of the nation believe that regular date nights would improve their relationship. 1 in 4 of the 2000 people surveyed by Royal Crown Soda* admitted that they would like their partners to up their game when it comes to dating and romance.  So what are we waiting for?  It seems that setting aside quality time with our partners may just be the key to a long and happy relationship, yet we are neglecting to do so!

Difficulties in finding the money, babysitters and time are all cited as excuses for not enjoying date nights, but with a bit of imagination and inspiration you can enjoy a date night without even leaving the house!

The nations most people activities for night nights are enjoying a meal together (42%) and cosying up on the sofa with a box set (20%).  Only 11% were interested in 'getting lucky', preferring the thought of their partner's kitchen skills over their bedroom skills.

For me, a date night involves good food and a good film.  Here are the Top 10 choices for a date night film according  to RC Cola's survey:

  • Dirty Dancing
  • Top Gun
  • Sleepless in Seattle
  • Romeo and Juliet
  • Ghost
  • The Notebook
  • Love Actually
  • Star wars
  • Pretty Woman
  • Lord of the Rings
Now, for me, most of these films are romcoms or chick flicks, the sort that I'd watch with my girls whilst wearing face masks and scoffing popcorn.  Don't get me wrong, I love a good chick flick.  In fact Dirty Dancing and The Notebook rank right up there in my favourite films ever, but for a date night Ian and I would be more inclined to watch The Evil Dead!  I love having a good scare so we can snuggle up together for protection. Nothing says romance more than being terrified into the tightest of hugs!  It gets the old heart pumping, that's for sure. That's my ultimate date night sorted.
