The last time my husband and I went out for a “date night”, things didn’t start off so well. Within a few minutes of leaving the house, he made a comment, at which I kiddingly snapped a retort. A sarcastic bit of back-talk, if I must be honest. But, let’s get something straight…my husband is the king of sarcasm, so it wasn’t anything he’s not used to dishing out himself.
But, since the two of us don’t get out much together anymore, he said, “Just for tonight, let’s not talk like that. Let’s pretend we’ve been dating for two weeks.”
And, after an evening of talking and laughing like we used to, we learned a very valuable lesson. It’s really not easy to be that nice.
