Can you be in a relationship without dates? This is a question that has been on my mind lately.

I'm not sure if it's because the weather is getting nicer and I'm starting to think about summer weddings or if it's something else, but I've been thinking about how important dates really are in a relationship. And, more specifically, whether or not you can have a healthy relationship without them.

So, I decided to ask around and see what other women thought. The results were interesting…

While some women said they could definitely be in a relationship without dates, others felt like it would be tough to do especially if they think the relationship is one-sided.

And, interestingly, the ones who said they could be in a relationship without dates were typically those who had been in long-term relationships or were married.

For most women, though, not having dates would be a deal-breaker. They need that time to get dressed up, go out, and spend time with their partner to feel connected and close. Without it, they feel like they're just friends or roommates.

At the end of the day, whether or not you can be in a relationship without dates is really up to you and your partner.

Let’s break this down further;

How Often Should You Go On Dates In A Relationship?

Well, that really depends on the couple. Some couples go on dates every week, while others might only go on a few a year. As long as you're spending quality time together and feeling connected, it doesn't really matter how often you go on dates.

If you're looking for some ideas on how to spend your time together, check out this list of fun activities to do with your partner.

Now that we have highlighted the importance of dating in a relationship and choices, we will now shift our focus to the various types of dating.

There are many different types of dates that couples can go on and each has its own set of benefits. In this section, we will explore three popular types of dates – casual dates, formal dates, and family dates.

Casual Dates:

Casual dates are perfect for couples who are just getting to know each other. They are low-pressure and allow you to get to know your partner without having to worry about making a good impression.

Some popular casual date ideas include going for coffee, taking a walk around the city, going to a museum, or watching a movie.

Formal Dates:

Formal dates are perfect for couples who are in a more serious relationship and want to strengthen their bond.

They typically involve dressing up, going out to dinner or a show, and spending time talking and getting to know each other better.

This is one of my favourites where I am able to share thoughtful handmade gifts with my boyfriend at the end of the night.

Family Dates:

Family dates are perfect for couples who want to include their families in their relationships. They involve spending time with both partners' families and can include things like going out to eat, playing games, or watching a movie.

But that is not all, going on dates when you are married with kids can be a bit difficult. There is not much time to go out, especially when both partners are working.

What we do is that we plan a date night every week where we either stay at home and cook dinner or order in or go out for a nice dinner. We also try to go on mini-vacations once every few months to get away from the kids and spend some quality time together.

It is important to make time for each other no matter how busy you are!

As you can see, there are many different types of dates that couples can go on. It is important to find the type of dates that work best for you and your partner and to make sure that you are taking the time to enjoy each other's company.

Bottom Line: Whether or not you go on dates is really up to you and your partner. If you're happy without them, then there's no need to change things. But, if you feel like you're missing out on something, then it might be time to start scheduling in some time for date night.

We hope you enjoyed this post! and I am curious, how often do you go on dates with your partner?
