Importance of Date Night

Date night is something all couples should make time for. Whether you’ve been married for decades or just started dating, date nights are a great way to connect. This post is brought to you by Outback Steakhouse.

As an Outback Bestmate I received compensation, but all opinions are my own.

Date Night at Outback Steakhouse

Mike and I have not had an actual vacation together since our wedding. That means we need regular date nights.

Time flies so quickly and it’s easy to get stuck on the hamster wheel of daily life. One day you realize that it’s been months since you’ve shared any real quality time together.

Thankfully, Outback has declared itself the Official Sponsor of Date Night to help couples steak out more time for each other with deals they cannot refuse.

Outback’s New American Romance study uncovered the hard truth behind America’s date night problem – people are too busy for the one they love. More than half of those surveyed said they need at least one date night per month to keep the spark alive, but shockingly 56% can’t remember their last date night!

Outback is offering sizzling steaks and specials to help make date night a reality for everyone.

The classic Date Night Meal includes:

  • A Bloomin Onion® to share
  • Two 8 oz. Outback Special® Sirloins
  • Choice of Freshly Made Side & Signature Salad (per person)
  • A Classic Cheesecake dessert to share
  • Or, have your Date Night Meal with two 6oz. filets or one 8oz. sirloin and one 6 oz. filet. Ask your server for details.
  • Plus, relax and un-wine-d with $10 off select bottles of vino

For couples who have let their busy calendars get in the way of time together, Outback is asking them to share a #TBT photo on Facebook that captures that first spark, transporting them back to a moment when even a busy schedule couldn’t come between them.

Mike and I took Shelley and Evan on a double date night. Dining out is about so much more than the food. We enjoyed great conversation and laughed a lot.

Of course, we also stuffed our faces, but in great company!

Date night will definitely be getting marked in the calendar as a regular priority. Outback Steakhouse is a great place to make that happen with their casual and fun atmosphere, great prices, and delicious food.

My kids don't get to stay with their grandparents or anything so that we can go out for a date night. I suppose we could hire a sitter but we just never do. This is a great reminder that my husband and I need to take time to reconnect. I'd love to go to the Outback for a romantic, quiet adult dinner where I don't have to order a meal that my child will eat.

Would it be really sad if I said it has been over 10 years since me and my husband went out for a dinner, as a date. Not just to eat, but to spend time with each other, not talking about work/kids/bills but just being with each other. Such a great reminder that time spent doing nothing but spending time together is vital to a healthy relationship. Thank you :)

Date nights are so important. Not only are they fun, but they can help keep your relationship fresh and in touch.

We have not been to Outback in some time. Usually the food is really good.
