Moving to a new area offers both benefits and challenges. The benefits usually revolve around making new friends, living out the adventure of exploring a new town, finding new places to go and new things to do, plus leaning into the process of being a part of new community.


With that in mind, there are challenges too. AND The challenges usually mirror the benefits. Particularly as a fully actualized adult. Who are these new friends I'm supposed to meet and where do I find them?



Lest we forget, if one is a fully actualized adult in a relationship/partnership/committed situationship? (or looking to be in one) not knowing the area, and date nights have been lacking-- what to do? On Best Morning (on Lite 98.7) we asked listeners to share some ideas to help both Dave and I (and our respective partners) to hotten our date nights up a few notches. Particularly now that spring has sprung.


This is what we came up with:

  • Go to a show at Turning Stone 
  • Have a Couples Massage or Spa Treatment
  • Go to a Show at The Stanley Theatre
  • Take an Improve Class or go dancing at Uptown Theatre
  • Take a Forging Class--yes! make a chef's knife or a super sword!
  • Go Axe Throwing? or archery
  • Take a Cooking Class
  • Go Kayaking/ boating
  • Horseback Riding or Rock Climbing at The Root Farm
  • Berry or Apples Picking-- and then make pie!
  • Make a list of "hole in the wall" bars/restaurants and every date night pick one.
