This summer feels like a complete blur to me. Our lives have been so insane these past couple months especially for Jason and I. We have been working non-stop; leaving very little time for each other and seem to be functioning parallel to one another. Despite our busy schedules, Jason has been traveling for work a lot, sometimes he can be gone for 4 weeks a pop! We both looked at each other recently and couldn’t believe we have not had a “proper” date night in a really long time. If we do make it out together, it consists of a dinner at one of our fav places but nothing adventurous or different. As much as we are on separate pages, we both agreed we were in need of a serious date night to re connect with one another. The biggest question we had, “where should we go”.
Luckily there’s a service called HowAboutWe for Couples. HowAboutWe started as an online dating site, but has since expanded with couples. It’s an online service for people in a relationship to go on amazing dates, tailored for two. Members can browse a great selection of local date experiences, pick the ones they like, and go. Couples, whether you are married or not, should put effort into going out because new experiences are great for a relationship. By being a member of HowAboutWe, they offer you the ultimate best and they take care of all the details of the date, like a personal concierge.
While browsing through the datebook via online, I was so impressed at the activities and “dates” that were listed for couples to do. There was so much to choose from, it was hard deciding. Some of the dates include cooking classes, wine tasting, dance classes, sport outings. There was also a rooftop swim on Park Ave, I mean how fab is that! NYC has so much to offer and since we are living in this amazing city we might as well take advantage of it!
For our date, we used the concierge to choose and make reservations for a restaurant we’ve never been to before but have been wanting to try, Colicchio and Sons. The food was beyond, as was the atmosphere and amazing staff! Next part of our date, there usually was never a second part; we selected a date from the DateBook and decided to sail along the Hudson River. We set sail at sunset on the Classic Harbor Line’s Schooner Adirondack, a beautiful 80-foot sailboat. HowAboutWe arranged these plans for us, Jason and I couldn’t have been happier. I know that if this service didn’t make these plans for us, we would have never done this ourselves. We probably wouldn’t have even though to do this type of fun activity either.
The two hour sail was incredible. We sailed along the Hudson passing Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. The New York City’s skyline looked absolutely gorgeous in the distance. It truly was a magical night and much needed for the both of us. Jason is now back in LA, but we are planning our next date night on HowAboutWe in just a couple of weeks. Couples especially when kids come along forget to make one-on-one time together and it really is important to do that for your relationship. I am so happy to have discovered HowAboutWe and suggest you all give it a try!
