5 Surprisingly Disastrous Date Night Ideas

trapezeEvery married person will tell you -- date nights are essential for keeping things interesting. It's the perfect time to relax, reconnect, and forget about that 100-line-long to-do list. For most couples, that means bonding over a bottle of wine at dinner, then taking in a movie.

Then there are moments we try to get a little creative with our one-on-one time. My husband and I have tried everything from concerts to paint-you-own-pottery to karaoke. But that's not out-of-the box enough for a lot of couples. One pair I know took a trapeze lesson to spice the night up. It was fine and dandy until his fear of heights set in and she spent 30 minutes of their 45-minute session trying to coax him down.

Bottom line: your intentions may be good, but sometimes it's better to keep things simple. Here are four more seemingly cool date night ideas you should just avoid.

Everything except exercising together sounds awesome to me. We go to clubs sometimes just to relight the fire of our youth. We like couples time bc all our couple friends are married and we're usually more touchy feely. Sporting events? I'm usually more into the game than my hubby (my team usually does better anyway).
