7 Long-Distance Date Night Ideas

It’s inevitable in the military community that you will be spending time away from your spouse.

Deployments, schools, TAD assignments, unaccompanied orders, geo-bachelor living situations; all of these things make dating and romancing your spouse a little bit harder than if you were able to just make a 7 o’clock reservation at your favorite restaurant.
But that doesn’t mean you CAN’T date your spouse while they are away. You just need to get a little more creative!

Here are a few ways to keep date night alive no matter the distance…

1. Netflix


God bless technology! I don’t know HOW MANY Friday night dates I have been able to have with my husband thanks to Netflix.

While we are stationed 500 miles apart, we make time once a month to sit down at the same time and pick out the same movie on Netflix to watch; we either Skype or text through the whole thing.

I’d like to say we alternate who picks the movie, but to be honest he usually leaves it up to me.

I’m kind enough not to inflict sappy girl movies every time. (Just every other!)
