Here’s how it works! The whole date is based on each of you making decisions for each other: picking out things you think the other would like. This can be really funny and insightful, and a good way to get to know your spouse better!

When we tried out this date, my husband and I decided to go out for frozen yogurt. SO many choices to really test your knowledge of your spouse’s preferences!

We were pretty spot on filling each other’s cups! We both always like the plain tart flavor (because it’s a neutral palette with any topping!) so that was a given for the base. I topped his yogurt with anything chocolatey and peanut butter, because that’s what he prefers. He nailed my cup with all sorts of fruit and gummy candy because… apparently I have the taste buds of a kindergartener!
