Micro Dating - a new strategy for today's busy couples

My wife and I stumbled on a revolutionary new concept the other day.  Due to the time pressures of work, chauffeuring kids, and doing chores…we were finding that getting together—just the two of us—was becoming more difficult than standing on my nose while writing a blog during a Category Five hurricane.

Then, a miracle happened! 

One day when we realized that we were both free to drive our daughter to flute choir, we decided to have a micro date.  So after dropping our little piper off, we peeled out high-fiving over our precious freedom.  We treasured our 40 minutes together browsing at the bookstore.  Love bloomed in the best-sellers section.  

Love finds a way

But we didn't stop there.  Just the other day, we found 17 minutes and 29 seconds to “take a turn of our estate” (translation: meander through our one-fifth of an acre yard).  We smelled the flowers, watched the bees, picked some tomatoes, and kissed under the maple. And then I sang a verse of “Precious and few are the moments we two can share.”  

Now you can mirco date, too!

Are you having trouble finding time to date your spouse?  Try micro dating, and make every spare minute count. All you need is love.


  1. OMG -- don't get me started on the chauffeuring...! The micro-dating concept sounds good, though. Will try it out and get back to you. (Or at you...)

  2. You're going to love it, Dave. Let's start a trend. :-)
