(for Ages 40-49)
Create a message inviting your spouse for a romantic getaway (cut the invitation into pieces) and send it a few pieces at a time during the week. Or you can put the pieces into balloons and cover his/her floor with the balloons. Pack both your bags, get someone to watch the kids, and go away for at least two nights.
Take the time to make a CD of favorite love songs. Go dancing down by the riverfront, lake, or ocean with a CD player and slow dance until the sun goes down. Watch the stars come out, and talk about your dreams for the future.
Go to the State or local fair. Get your portrait done by a local artist or cartoonist. Try to win a prize at the arcade. Share a treat from the food court. Bring a blanket to watch a musical performance.
Go sightseeing or touring a city. Visit a museum or art gallery, go shopping and enjoy lunch or dinner at one of the city's popular restaurants. Perhaps you can take a walking tour of the downtown sites. Ask the chamber of commerce or visitor's bureau for things to do and places of interest.
Make a treat together, then take it to a crabby neighbor. Leave a note, wishing them a happy day.
Go pick strawberries, raspberries, or other fruit together. Leave stems attached and dip a few large strawberries into chocolate (you'll need to find dipping chocolate). Or make ice cream crepes together with fresh fruit. Or for a simple treat, enjoy ice cream with fresh fruit topping.
Take a long drive in the mountains or along the coast on a sunny day. Plan to stop where you can watch a colorful sunset from a majestic lookout. Bring a basket of goodies and a blanket so you can enjoy the experience.
Exercise together a couple of times a week (walking, riding, jogging, take an exercise class, etc.). Bring water, but leave the iPod behind. It's hard to talk when you've got something in your ears.
Sketch your dream-house floor plan and talk about the possibilities for each room. You could visit model homes or open-houses together for ideas.
Get two cameras, and spilt up. Take pictures of places that bring back good memories of times together. Or take pictures of places that describe qualities of the other person. For example, if the person is sweet, take a picture of your local candy store. Once you've had the pictures developed, compare them over dinner, while recalling fond memories you've had together.
During Christmas holidays or Halloween, drive around looking at the decorations on the houses (drive in the best neighborhoods with the best decorations and compare what you both like). Then go to the store and buy some decorations and decorate one of your rooms or house together.
Take a fruit plate to elderly people in your neighborhood. Explain that you'd like to share some food and fun with them. Share some humorous stories, then offer to play a game (Chinese checkers is a good one). Ask them to share the story of how they met, and their favorite date.
Gather pictures from the past. Write the story of how you met. Get it printed and bound.
Spend a day visiting all of the old places you've visited in the beginning as a couple and take photographs. Talk about all of the old memories.
My boyfriend took me to my favorite place on earth, the beach. We went to the top of a high deck that overlooked the ocean, surrounded by trees. It was breathtaking. Months later, he took me to the same spot on a cold winter night with a new moon. He brought a blanket and hot tea. We gazed at stars, their constellations, and planets that he had studied in high school. Those dates didn't cost a dime and were memorable.
