I bet you didn’t think you could have the words “date night” and “Scandal” in the same sentence. Well, you were wrong! Setting aside time each week to watch a television show can be a perfect way to trick yourself to spending some much needed quality with your significant other.
Watching flicks and shows is actually something my boyfriend and I love to do together since we are both extreme movie buffs. You name it, we’ve probably watched it together. We used to love going to the movies every week to see the latest Blockbuster until we realized going to the movies all the time can get REALLY expensive.$12.50 each week adds up when you are on a student/recent graduate budget. So, we starting using Redbox, which was a great alternative to our movie addiction. Redbox always had the latest DVD releases so our selection was phenomenal. On top of that, we could rent 12 movies for the price that it took to watch one in the theaters! Getting Redbox rentals meant that we could cozy up in the comfort of our own homes and really enjoy what we were watching. Plus, relaxing in your own sofa or bed is so much better than sitting up in those uncomfortable movie theater seats.
Since we love watching movies together, and of recent, had been watching more movies at home, I didn’t think it would be a problem to suggest that we make Thursday evenings our “Scandal” nights. Hey, isn’t it just one extra-drawn-out movie that continues each week?
I proposed this to my boyfriend one evening in the middle of our movie-watching and he surprisingly said, “Okay, your house or mine?”
My boyfriend is not one for intense television dramas catered to the female demographic so this was a total shocker. But, he said yes and I never looked back. Every Thursday we make it a priority to clear our schedule. I head over to his place around 9:30PM and get ready for the best date night ever. I usually have to sit through the last parts of a (boring) NBA game, but that’s okay because once 10:00PM rolls around, it’s all about “Scandal.”
