4/5 stars

The Date Night Manifesto is a fun and interesting read, it really does contain good advice for men and women and has made me determined to make more of an effort on date night!

It is so easy to get stuck in a rut when you've been with someone for ages (10 years in my case) and although I love my husband more than ever, domesticity and work does sometimes get in the way of romance.

Personally I don't think there's anything wrong with staying in and watching a movie with a nice takeaway now and again (bliss), but it's a shame if that's all you tend to do as a couple.

The book has some very nice quotes in it, some good advice, and even handy tips for what to do on date nights. It is full of scientific research, real life examples, and there is also a section on negative relationship patterns which was an eye-opener.

I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to reconnect, strengthen and add the thrill back into their relationship. I received this book through NetGalley in order to review.
