Ask Beth: No More Boring Date Night

Posted by Beth Darling on Nov 16th 2021

Dear Beth Darling,

My wife and I have been together for 21 years. We still love each other and have date-night together at least twice a month. The problem is, our dates are a little boring. I don’t want to complain to her because I don’t want to hurt her feelings-but after 21 years together we’ve just had a lot of dates and know each other so well there isn’t that much to talk about. Any suggestions?


Dear Ed,

Of course I have ideas for you, lol!

But first, congrats on 21 years together and still loving each other. Yay y’all!

Ok, as far as making your dates more interesting, here’s one of my favorite date night games for y’all :

Have dinner in a popular restaurant and request a table with a good view. Not out the window, of the other guests! Then each of you take turns choosing a couple and then asking the other to answer the following 5 questions about them, one at a time:

  1. What do you imagine their sex life is like? Describe in exquisite detail!
  2. On a scale of 1-10, how happy do you think each is with it. Explain why.
  3. What parts of it do you think are hot or not? Explain.
  4. What advice would you give them? Explain.
  5. What advice do you think they would give us? Explain.

I love playing this game because not only will you be rolling on the floor laughing at the (imaginary) exploits of others, but you’ll probably learn a lot about what “crazy” fantasies each of you has, and you might even find yourselves researching crazy sex stories during the week to share with each other on date night! The best part of this game is that y’all are strongly encouraged to try the “new” things at home and, in fact, I’d give you bonus points for buying some gold star stickers to award each other for “Best Story”, “Craziest Idea”, “Best New Position”, etc!

Have fun and may you both win great sexy fun every time!
