I have put together a 12 Months of Dates Kit for those of you who love the idea but don’t know where to start. It’s the perfect gift to give to your spouse or to your married kids. Whether you've been in a relationship for years, or it's your first date, the dating game can be very expensive.
There were times when the last thing we had the energy to do was plan a date but b/c we had pre-planned these dates we made ourselves do it. We didn’t know it then but it was absolutely what we needed for that year in the midst of stress, busyness and chaos.
It kept us intentional even when we were up to our ears with piles and piles of stuff to sort through.
Nowadays dates can be arranged in person, over the phone, across cyber space, or via an app.
Then when you finally secure a date with someone who seems nice, there's the much debated topic of who will pay for the date.
In the picture below, my husband is reading the card he wrote me to go with that month’s date.
It meant so much to me to hear him say those words of affirmation, admiration and love that he had written months ago when he made these 12 months of dates for me.

I know we all want to keep the spark going in our marriages so let’s start now. Don’t wait for him to do the planning (I know it’s lovely to be wooed but sometimes it just doesn’t happen) so why don’t you get it started and set it up yourself.
There's an ongoing discussion surrounding heterosexual relationships, about whether you can be a female feminist yet expect men to pay for your date.
When it comes to who's footing the bill, I believe in splitting it, because I don't believe my partner should pay for my fun or the food I consumed, unless of course he's very insistent.
