Date Nights.4:03 PM
Last week Elias and I got into a really (or what I felt it to be) ugly argument. After that I felt we needed some rejuvenation, five years being together, you just get so used to doing things a certain way, sort of a daily schedule. So I suggested to him we could use a date night, let's get dressed up nicely (instead of always seeing each other in our work clothes or pj's) and let's head out to dinner, go to a movie, get a coffee at Barnes & Noble together, anything that involves doing things we both enjoy. He agreed we could use one and I was quite happy and surprised because Elias isn't too much of a man to love being out in public, he's very much introverted and would rather spend time at home watching movies. We broke it up into two days and we went out for dinner & shopping the first; the second day we went to the movies to watch a movie he's been anticipating, The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. It was good for both of us because each thing we did there was something for both of us to like as well as the fact we're doing it together. Five years later and I'm very thankful to have Elias as my man, yes we have our ups and downs, but I'm glad we can work out the downs together to come back up again.
