Mary Buxton, a Campbell based sex and couple therapist, has come up with a novel idea to help spark communication between couples. It's called "Date by the Numbers" and it works like this . . Pick a restaurant. Your date is a meal with three courses: drinks, dinner, and desert. For each course one of you picks 2 - 3 numbers between 1 and 10. Then the other reads aloud the questions that correspond with these numbers on the Date by the Numbers sheet. The other answers, and you swap roles at each course.

According to Mary, "I find that many couples say "But we don't have anything to talk about on a date." That gave me the idea for "Date by the Numbers". Although I was thinking about
couples who have been together a while, it will also work for couples who are newly together. It's meant to spark spontaneity, interest and fun.

Great for Valentine's Day, Anniversaries, Birthdays, and personal celebrations. For your copy of Date by Number's, go to http://www.marybuxton.com and print your free copy.
