After Troy is dropped off to school in the mornings, Jorge and me ( If I’m not staying over at work doing a 12 hr shift ), are left alone in a quiet house between 8 am and 3 pm. If we don’t do chores together, we usually end up on the couch in front of the TV and while Jorge tries to get more sleep time, I usually wind down and catch up with the multiple TV series I’m following until sleepiness sneaks up on me as well.
Dinner usually happens around 4 pm when the kids are home and then I’m off to the real bed for my real bedtime in preparation for work at 11 pm.
Other times, we go out for brunch at around 10 am and do some grocery shopping afterwards or we go out for a real lunch about 1 pm and make it just in time to pick up the kids after school. In times like these, no more dinner for me but I still stay up just to spend time with the children as they have their dinner.
We always make it a point for everyone to be present at dinner to catch up on how everyone’s day went.
As much as we love our brunch dates and date nights, lunch dates are pretty special too.
Here are the reasons why every couple should go on a lunch date regularly.
It enhances your well being. Lunch dates gives Jorge and me the opportunity to get out of the house during daytime and not eat our usual home cooked meal.
Just the opportunity of changing our routine once in awhile makes us feel good about ourselves and with our family life in general.
There is something different about being out and about in the middle of the day, when the world is awake and people are taking a break in the middle of their busy schedule. The energy is more upbeat compared to breakfast dates and less formal compared to date nights.
I honestly find it exciting when I am meeting Jorge somewhere in town for a lunch date and as we eat our meal and see other people enjoying their own meal and making conversations with their companions, it makes us feel normal regular humans. lol!
It nurtures your marriage and friendship. Remember those lunch dates you had together before you got married? You may not feel your heart racing or there maybe no more butterflies in your stomach at the sight of your spouse as you meet up for a lunch date this time but it sure will make you focus on each other and talk about things and stuffs without the distraction of your children’s presence.
Lunch dates, like date nights enhances your marriage relationship. We do love to spend time with our children and to do adventures with them outside our home but whenever we go on our dates without the kids, there is that feeling of lightness and “liberation” from family life and you can give your full attention to your sweetheart.
Don’t talk about finances or kids issues or any household problems when you are on your date. You can reminisce the old bygone days of the early stage of your relationship and you can create more happy memories for the years to come.
Being out on a regular and pleasant date in general makes you feel emotionally closer to your spouse and thus help prevent from drifting apart from each other. It enhances the loving feeling you have for each other and you may even discover or rediscover qualities that you did not notice before.
Jorge is always in the house in his house clothes or pajamas, while I am always either in my pajamas or scrubs and to go on our dates dressed other than our usual clothing is actually a treat to the eyes! lol!
Today, we each had Teriyaki Salmon and a Spicy Salmon Roll for me and Albacore Tataki Roll for Jorge at the Raw Sushi Bistro. A delightful break from our home cooked meal.
So my dear friends, take your spouse on a lunch date, on the bright and busy part of the day and enjoy each other’s company outside your home. There is something exciting about the time constraints of a lunch date between your jobs and picking up the kids from school.
Make it a point to make time for a date with your spouse regularly in the midst of all your responsibilities. Marriage is a journey and it is both your responsibility to make it a pleasant ride.
If you can make a delightful date possible on a regular basis with your spouse, it could be a breakfast date, a brunch, a dinner date or a lunch date, I believe this indicates that you are in a happy marriage and it may inspire others who know you to do the same too.
So don’t delay! Take your spouse on a lunch date today!
