Can't wait for the coBlossom couples app to launch? Neither can we! In the meantime, we've been enjoying some couples date boxes to pass the time. Did you know that 59% of couples struggle to find time for a date night each month? A recent study from the University of Virginia found that couples who regularly schedule time for a date night at least once a week were 3.5 times more likely to report being "very happy." And no, watching your regularly scheduled Netflix show does not count as a date night!
At coBlossom, we understand that busy schedules can get in the way and make it difficult to create quality time with your partner, in fact, that's the challenge that we are aiming to solve by offering minigames that help couples have fun while building the healthy habit of creating quality relationship time. Until we launch (can the end of this summer come fast enough?!), we've looked into date boxes as a quick fix and have consolidated a list of our favorites. We've been having fun doing some of the more novel activities, and studies back our reactions, showing that couples who regularly participate in novel experience greater relationship satisfaction. Work towards accomplishing your couple goals by trying some (or all) of the list and add variety to your week!
