Date night

At what point in a relationship does a couple start planning 'date night'? At the beginning of a relationship every time you see each other is date night. You always wear makeup, cute lingerie, and an adorable outfit to meet, even if it is a late night tryst. Is a pre-planned 'date night' a sign that you don't care the other days of the week when you see your beau? Is 'date night' an attempt to recapture the excitement and passion that marked those first few months of togetherness?

The early dates are the funniest right. It all seems so phony, but at the same time exciting. Planed date night sure it is defiantly “an attempt to recapture the excitement and passion”.

Planned date night is an on-going committment to the relationship, a symbol of it's importance and priority. That no matter what else happens, you stop what you're doing to remind yourself why you're together. To remind the other party that they're loved.

It's not a desparate attempt to reclaim what's lost, it's a celebration of what still is.

Um, pretty much. By the time you've settled into your routine you are fighting for five minutes of your partners time. It's a little escape that is devoted to just the two of you hanging out with no other friends or distractions. I think it's great if you have kids.

It seems to me that date nights are for people who want to pretend they are still out in the dating world. Of course after reading the above responses, that makes me sound like a cynical asshole, but there ya go.
