The best date nights are the ones that help you learn more about each other, share your passions and talents and create a deeper connection. We all can use a little inspiration from time to time, so when you find yourself you’re in a date night rut, try one of these ideas. For extra, spontaneous fun, cut out these suggestions, throw them in a hat and randomly choose a date.
Let us know if you try any of these ideas. Snap a picture and mention us (@charmeasttexas) on Facebook or Instagram and use the hashtag #charmdatenight.
