When date night finally rolls around, sandwiched between a late meeting at work and dropping the kids to their play date, it can be difficult to keep the “shop talk” – household responsibilities, work, kids – to a minimum. But a big part of date night is being able to set those topics aside and focus on just you and your partner. Actually leaving work behind, is easier said than done. If you find you and your partner needing a little help in this department, the internet is a great place to get your conversational juices flowing. We’ve compiled 20 fun and engaging date night conversation starters to do just that:
