6 Tips For Making The Most Of Your Car Date Night

3:20 PM

The pace of our non-stop, over-committed, work schedule induced lives, symbiotically attached to the demands of an ever-on tech world, leaves little down time. As well, it may seem rare that we find time for crucial, human connectivity, relationship sustaining, “date nights.”

Every minute of life counts. Whether you are partnering, happily married, living with an amazingly, wonderful, significant other; showing appreciation, and spending special alone-time is a paramount perk in life.

Date Night – Unique and Very Special Venue

Home is the first space in your life, and work is the necessary second, outside, or within your dwelling. The car is a treasured third space.

Americans have a special attachment to their chosen ride, often naming it, and always feeling the freedom it represents with avid appreciation. From receiving a first kiss, to having the “let’s move-in together” conversation, in the third space, it is a meaningful destination for memory making moments. It is also an escape haven, and the perfect venue for communication, life contemplation, nugget and fry food consumption, and music blaring/vocalizing, de-stressing from life’s numerous challenges.

Level Up – Car Prep

Taking the brave action to level up for this incredulous time share, with your significant other, means making preparations that add glow-up-ness to your ride. Washed, swept, and stocked with comfy throws, are given car preps, but to make it special, depending on the destination, add:
  • Two soft pillows.
  • A few fairy lights at the rear window frame, or surrounding the sunroof or ceiling for a dimension of “specialness” to the dating concept.
  • A basket of couple’s craved treats.
  • Matching insulated water bottles with hot chocolate, or even smoothies, made with surprise mixtures, not experienced before.
  • A crafted music playlist honed to treat all four ears.
These well thought out amenities for this nightfall togetherness event, transform your movable third space, into a destination for fun, and the kind of oneness which relationships build upon, to grow stronger and more sustainable.

Destination Do It, Not Do It

The prepping of celebratory atmosphere has been created. Picking the activity, should be a compilation of mutual likes and interests. Depending on the weather, and your location; urban, suburban, country, or beach, the activity chosen, mutually, is the gateway to a uniquely prioritized experience.

Let this list of six tips for having a unique date night, inspire your evening:

6 Tips for Making the Most of Your Car Date Night

1. Glam Camping: The car version of camping in the woods, in a comfy style, with all the elements of nature; fresh air, a blanket of star light, crickets, a flowing stream. With the back seats flipped down, open windows, and thick duvet cover and pillows, your car is the perfect retreat. Add hot takeout food shared, selfies, a mutually gathered personal playlist of music, and the night is made.

2. Mini-Road Tripping: A short trip down the open road to see where it leads, or to find a predetermined historic site or scenic highway. The get-a-way feels are there, to share. As with any trip, be safe, knowing you are protected with car insurance coverage and roadside assistance from a trusted provider like Freeway Car Insurance. The long-term memories of date night should be the evening of laughter and smiles, rather than that of being stranded, hailing for help on the side of the road. Preparation here goes a long way.

3. Drive-In Movie Night Viewing: A retro-event like the drive-in is so special under the night sky. With your own version of flavored popcorn, and fizzy drinks, and candy, watching old movies, or newer on the big screen is joyous. There are over 300 drive-ins throughout the United States. Not found. Bring your laptop, and stream a Netflix movie in your favorite, outdoor, green space.

4. Scenic Sunset and Selfies Dating: Grab a hot latte, and watch the sun set from as high up as you can drive in your hometown. The aroma of your “cuppa”, added to that colorful orb, sinking in the night sky, provides the kind of time sharing that affords peaceful, artistic, wondrous, calm to the healthy mind and soul. Music is an option.

5. Group Zoom Date Calling: If you want to share a part of your evening with your besties, bring your treats to your favorite green space, then zoom call them, sharing memories, laughter, music, and made-up games. Later, make moments just for you two. Relationships always include time for friends.

6. Stargazing: A clear night sky holds numerous meteor showers, massive galaxies, and loads of space junk for sky watcher couples to observe together, portable telescope, binoculars, or naked eye style. Making a wish on a falling star, together, is a high-five style dating event.

Having a prioritized car date night in celebration of authentic, shared, life experiences, is the bridge you build for deeper compassion, respect, and for challenge-proofing your relationship. With deeper compassion, respect, communication, and loving commitment can come a lifetime of togetherness.
