Many relationship experts tout “date night” as one of the top ways to keep your marital embers burning bright. Well, these experts have not encountered a couple as LAZY as my husband and I, who would like nothing more than to get in our jammies and be in bed by 10pm on a Saturday night.
The truth is- we haven’t seen an episode in real time Of Saturday Night Live since 2001 ( the year our daughter was born). It’s not that I don’t love to play dress up. It’s not that I don’t love champagne, it’s not that I don’t love good food- but if I can get two out of three while lounging in my yoga pants- that is the date night of my dreams. *as well as my husband’s* The only thing missing from our at-home date nights replete with champagne and some fantastic chick pea creation (care of my husband who has been such a staunch supporter of my desire to go meat-free) are entertainment options. And this is where Verizon Fios comes into play BIG TIME as the perfect Date night IN option for couples who are homebodies ( like us) but want to experience great films and TV shows together without all the pomp and circumstance of GETTING dressed. Just don’t forget to bring the flowers and wine and Verizon will do the rest!
#1 By providing the latest and most exciting recent movies on Showtime, HBO, Cinemax, Epix, pay per view and other movie channels couples get to stay in and catch up on films that were just out in theaters, minus the hefty price tag, thanks to Verizon Fios. We always check out their recommended section first which features some great ones that might not have been huge box office hits but were critically acclaimed. (And are ones I always forget I wanted to see until I see them in this section!) My husband especially loves this feature because I don’t care if he falls asleep-which he always does when I drag him to an Indie film.
#2 Unlike other cable companies (who shall remain nameless) whose reception and picture are always a crapshoot (i.e. you can’t plan an impromptu date night in around them because you just don’t know if their movie channels will once again Not be available)– with Verizon Fios’ seamless high definition viewing, and great choice of channels without outages there is never a loss of programming. If anything the only argument is whose movie will we watch first!
#3 No babysitter, no problem, you can STILL have your date night in uninterrupted with With Verizon Fios’ High Speed Internet Access. With the fastest speeds of fiber-optic Internet, you can use all your web-enabled devices at once without the result of slow Internet- so while you and your boo are binge-watching the last three episodes of your favorite TV show On Demand your kids can be logged in and entertained as well with the same high quality speed!.
#4 Let’s face it-Getting the Verizon triple play at the low price of $69.99 makes everyone happy. Remember happy wife=Happy life!
#5 Bottom line: A date night that only necessitates YOGA PANTS and the remote control is a Date night that WILL HAPPEN!
