Have you ever wanted to go out with your significant other but didn't know what to do? Are you tired of the "I don't know, what do you want to do?” Or maybe you're like me and just tired of being the only one planning a date (sorry babe love you HAHA). Well if you answered "yes" to any of these questions, this guide is for you!
Even if you're great at planning dates, sometimes it's fun to let fate choose and let your brain rest. So I've created this little guide to help out with your date night decision, featuring the Jar Method. I actually came across the Jar Method on Pinterest (surprise, surprise) and molded it into my own. When I say it has saved my sanity 100 times I'm not joking.
- What you need: popsicle sticks, sharpie, mason jar (paint too if you wanna be cute)
- How it works: write a date option on every popsicle stick. Example: movie date, a specific restaurant, gardening- whatever makes you happy. There are tons of lists online w/ date ideas
- Then what? Place the popsicle sticks in the jar & grab one when in need of an idea for date night!
I actually made this project a date night and had us brainstorm dates together so we could choose things we both would want to do! Since introducing this method, we've gone bowling, painting, saw a show at the Kennedy Center, tried a new brunch spot, and went to a salsa club: things that we probably would not've done without our jar. Date Night is supposed to be fun, not stressful! And thanks to the Jar Method half of my stress is gone from trying to plan the perfect date :)
Try it and let me know how it works! Excited to hear back from you!
