Who says that going to clubs or bars is bad for couples over the age of 40? No one! So why are you people staying at home, all alone, every weekend, instead of going out and having some fun? Do not worry! You are not the only ones around the world who are doing it. I assure you that there are plenty 40+ couple who live their weekends inside the house. A glass of wine, a beer or even a shot have never hurt anyone. Also, if they are combined with great music, you have the recipe for a successful night out!
Fight Your Fears!
Yes, you are probably thinking that you are in your 40s, maybe you have passed your 50s and your place is no longer in bars and club. Well, you couldn’t be more wrong. There is nothing awkward or weird about older people going out. Have you got no friends who go out every weekend? Maybe you do not go out in a club to party until the break of dawn, but you should go out and have a beer at least once a week. Believe it or not, a date night a week can do wonders for your relationship.
You may be thinking that you no longer look great, as you did in your late 20s or even in your 30s. Your body started to show your age and you are no longer in love with yourself anymore. Trust me, your partner still has the hearts for you and if you just dressed up a little, put on a little make up (well, at least the ladies should!) and do something nice to your hair, you would see just how lovely you guys look.
Try Going out More Often
As I have already said, going out at least once a week can do wonders for your relationship. Think about it this way: you go out for dinner and a movie or maybe you go dancing, you get to re-connect with each other, maybe share some common interest in things you thought of as being lost with your youth. Going out is something you should do, because it helps you guys be happier, more relaxed and you can also have a lot of fun.
It is not necessary to go out only in clubs or in bars. You can try a nice restaurant, a dancing club or the cinema, the theater or even the opera. As long as you guys spend some quality time together, outside the house, with maybe a glass of booze in your hand, everything will be just perfect. You will see that you will meet yourselves again and it will do wonders to your relationship. Just start going out more often and you will see the results in no time.
