Blind Date Your Spouse *

Couple in restaurantA really fun way to spend a date night is to pretend you are meeting for the first time or the first time in a long time.

For maximum effectiveness, meet somewhere for dinner and leave separately. Are you saying like whaaaaat?

Here is a script to get started.  Modify for a blind date.

Excuse me…are you the ____ from WIU?

 Wow, it has been years!  You look great 🙂

 Are you in town for business?

 Yes, just for a day, do you have time to catch up?

 Sure, let’s get a table.

At this point you can ask each other questions like….

How are your Mom and Dad?

Are you still thinking about…?

I remember back in the day you were passionate about….. how did that work out?

What kind of work have you done?

Where have you traveled?

What has been the most significant event in your life?

What is your spouse like? (name their best qualities of course)

Tell me about your kids?

Topics to avoid on your date…

Health issues

Financial troubles

Family conflicts

Anything else you wouldn’t bring up on a first date!

For this to really work, stay in the scenario the whole time.  If you go back and forth from the fantasy to the reality like “oh by the way did you pay the Visa bill” you have lost the effectiveness of the role playing.

Give it a whirl!

Hope for the Best,
