Project 52: Discussing Tribes

We postponed our date to Saturday because Nathan had a guys’ night. We both agreed to switch nights since we didn’t have anything planned Saturday night. Lesson #1: Let the guys have some fun as long as date night still happens before the end of the week.

This week’s date night we discussed a book titled Tribes by Seth Godin. It was a book that Nathan recommended to me long long ago. I finally got around to reading it. It’s a short book. A quick read. I just had other books I wanted to read first. Nathan, being an entrepreneur, enjoys reading these types of books. I’m more into fiction. Lesson #2: Do something for the other person. It’ll strengthen your relationship.

I tried to make the date setting like a coffee shop. Drinking out of mugs, discussing books. Nathan wanted milk. I opted for a dulce de leche drink we had in the pantry. We had a great time talking about what we liked about the book and how we can apply it to the various projects we are working on. Lesson #3: Learning about the other person’s interests will give you more things to talk about.

Nathan said: I was excited when Tiffany wanted to read and discuss Tribes. We don’t usually enjoy the same genre of books so it was fun to talk about this book and how the principles can push us beyond our comfort limits. The evening was calm and pleasant. I thought the coffee shop theme was creative and made the date special.

OK, now it is your turn to link up to your date you had last week. Remember these rules…

  • Keep it clean and family friendly. This is a family friendly site. Anything inappropriate will be deleted.
  • It needs to be a date. Not your latest projects or pictures of your beautiful children. I do love reading about your projects and learning about your family. But this linky is for date nights and date nights only. It is for us to exchange date night ideas.
  • Link to a specific blog post about your date that week. Don’t just link to your site’s home page. It needs to be the direct link to the post. Anything not directly linked to the post will be deleted.
  • Link back to Simply Modern Mom or put the Project 52: Date Nights button on your site. It’s common courtesy. Please be nice.

    Love this! The coffee shop idea is clever. We both just read The Tipping Point so I’ll have to try that one this weekend.

    I love that your date nights are simple, yet you still the accomplish the goal of a date: time together. It makes date nights seem so much more doable. We still haven’t had our first date night for this yr, but I will have to try some of your simple and very doable (but fun and creative) date ideas.

    This week was quite hectic, but we still managed a great date night, thanks to your easy suggestion. I promise to provide some of my own ideas, but it’s nice to have someone else to glean from.

    what a wonderful idea! We had a great date last week, and I think we would definitely benefit from making them more consistent. Let’s see if we can get on board!
