For all the things we do as couples, whether it’s a date night, sharing our hearts, or intimate time, it’s imperative to “save some” for our relationships. If we don’t, it’s so easy to start down a slippery slope of bitterness and resentment when love needs aren’t met.
When it’s time to connect as a couple, my husband and I haven’t always been in sync with our time, desire and energy levels. We have polar opposite biological clocks; I am a morning person and he’s a night person. When I want to talk to him first thing in the morning, he’s not the slightest bit interested. When he wants to work on business stuff with me late at night, I’m not feeling it. We have also struggled withtrying to watch a movie together because I often fall asleep thirty minutes into the movie and begin waking up as the credits are rolling. Let’s just say, that doesn’t make for a good date night!
