Date Night Tips & Tricks
date night Tips & Tricks
Date night! An opportunity for fun and connection with each other. You’re already away from home at a new place, you’ve just had a full dose of relationship suggestions and tools, and you have the perfect opportunity to spend quality time with your True Love.
And tonight is a date with the "training wheels on"; that is, you have extra support from the day's activities, other blessed couples and the staff to take a risk and try something new.
Here are some tips and reminders to help take your evening to greater heights. There is also a chance to receive a special raffle prize (see scavenger hunt below)!
