Remember your first date? First dates are so laden with emotion. You may have planned the perfect first date and then not had much fun on it because you were a bundle of nerves.
Jeremy and Susan had met through the personals and decided to go to a movie on their first date – after all, that’s about as public a place as you can get, right? It seemed like a safe bet for a date with a stranger.
Well, it was a Tuesday night and the movie had been out for over a month. The theater was entirely empty. Susan had trouble enjoying the movie because she was freaked out about being alone in a dark theater with someone she had never met.
But, Jeremy suggested coffee and desert afterwards and she agreed (as long as there were people around).
They found they enjoyed each other’s company and a second date lead to a third.
They had been to many movies since that first date, but never once had the theater been empty again.

So, for the couple’s eighth wedding anniversary, Susan arranged to rent an entire theater movie screen for a mid week showing and have a movie date all to themselves. Because it was a smaller screen and it was mid week, it wasn’t as expensive as you’d might imagine.
This time, it was a lot of fun to be alone in the dark together.
One fun thing to do is to recreate your first date. It has all of the excitement of the first time around but without the nerves.
Sharing your history with each other can give you a perspective that allows you to weather temporary glitches better because of the sense of shared past. Nothing is more romantic than the sense that you’ve come through troubled times together. Going on your first date again is the metaphorical equivalent of being cozied up in front of a roaring fire together with a cold wind blowing outside.
If you can’t recreate the date for some reason (the restaurant went out of business, you live in a different city, etc.) Consider reminiscing in a note or conversation to help remind each other of some of the landmarks in your relationship. These can include your first date, your first kiss, or the first time you knew it was serious. These are the things that make you feel closer to one another
