We used to go out on dinner dates all the time. My mum would watch Sasha any time we wished and we would make an effort to do something together almost every week. Not going to lie – the frequency of our dinner dates has definitely decreased over the last couple of years. It could be the age (definitely the age) or the fact we’re just too comfortable at home (especially the new home), but the more I think about it, I realise we got a bit bored with the choices. Obviously this isn’t true and there are so many lovely restaurants in Glasgow that we haven’t been to yet, but still – we tend to want something a bit extraordinary now and again. Something we will remember for a long time and will always recommend to other couples. It always feels more fun eating out in other cities though doesn’t it? Whereas at home, I feel we tend to go to the same places just to be safe. God I sound so old. Like pensioner old.
Anyway, what I’m trying to say is – go and try out new places in the nearby cities. Book a room in a cute boutique hotel if you can and don’t worry about the frequency. Quality over quantity – always.
Huge thanks to The Ivy Edinburgh for dragging us out of the house and making us want to come back to Edinburgh more often now. The food and service were out of this world – thank you!
What do you do for dinner dates, couples? Would love to know.
