11 Get Messy

Get Messy You aren’t afraid to get messy in front of each other. We have all been there, a big plate spaghetti sat there, just waiting to fall down your shirt!

12 Equal Roles

Drink Together Having a meal together is always a good excuse to bring out a bottle of wine or two and indulge in some boozy fun at the same time. Make it a date night. Every strong relationship appreciates date nights.

18 Milestones

Milestones Most couples who regularly eat together have a favorite go-to restaurant. A place where memories are made and milestones celebrated.
