Engaged But Still Dating

Each other that is.
Sometimes I "slip" and say I'm dating Tim. But he and I are more than okay when it's said. Because we are dating. And we will date -- for forever, actually. We'll hopefully always go on dinner dates, and movie dates, and even our stay-in-and-order-food-and-watch-tv dates.
Because isn't that what true lovers do? I think it is.
I think it's important to date. Pursue your significant other. Make them feel special. Giggle at their jokes. Like they're young again. Give them butterflies. Make them blush. Call them handsome and beautiful.
I think it's important to do all these things no matter how much time has passed since the very first date.
One of our first dates -- lunch at the Seaport followed by dessert at a chocolate cafe and a walk in Central Park.

I'm excited -- and pretty lucky -- to date my best friend for the rest of my life.
And in just 10 months we have a really amazing date -- the day we become Mr. & Mrs.

  1. I definitely agree with the things you said about dating while you're engaged / married. Little things like that come a long way in a married couple's relationship.

  2. I love this! I read that article like a wk ago & totally meant to send it to you. Glad you found it, it's such an awesome message

  3. I think it's important to keep dating even after you get engaged and married. It's way too easy to slip into a routine and forget about all the fun and exciting reasons why you fell in love.

  4. Kyle and I have been married for almost 6 years and we still date. It is so important to keep that as an aspect of your relationship.
