A lot of times people say that social media can hurt a marriage. Jealousy, feelings of inadequacy, and more can happen when looking at other people’s pictures on Facebook. Yet, I believe that if used correctly social media can hep enhance your date night with your spouse. Here are the five tips on how to use social media to enhance your date night. (I think I am on a number five kick since I am celebrating five years of marriage.)
1. Like your local town’s page as well as surrounding towns’ pages
Towns continually update their pages not only with news, but also with new businesses opening up and community events. Trae and I just learned that our town is holding its first food truck rodeo thanks to its Faceobok page. Also, thanks to the town’s Facebook page, we learned one of our favorite, but normally too expensive to eat at, restaurants is holding a tasting for its new menu items. Looks like we have two yummy dates in our future! We also like Raleigh’s page and get tons of updates of fun events and downtown festivals that are only a short drive away. Not too long ago we went to watch The Goonies (Trae’s favorite movie) for free in Raleigh’s town square. Don’t forget to check to see if your town’s downtown has their own Facebook page. A lot of times towns will have one main Facebook page and then one downtown page. Greenville, SC has two pages, and I used to get a lot of great ideas and updates from their downtown page.
