Relationship boredom is plaguing UK live-in couples as they transition to the ‘new normal’. Holidays are off the cards, experiences out the window and dinner dates? Forget it. A recent Relate survey showed that 23% of couples are feeling pressure on their relationship because of the current circumstances and that’s not surprising when you have no adventures together to look forward to (1). For now, it seems like date nights are out, and quarantine tension is in.
Caroline and Jay, a London-based couple, were facing the same challenges and struggling to keep their relationship spark in their small apartment. So, they decided to spend lockdown launching the ‘new’ date night and bringing the butterflies back to people locked-down at home. They created Box42, a unique experiential date night box, delivered straight to your door which launched on the 20th of May.
Successful date nights in long term relationships rely on key factors: Communication, Novelty and Eros (Romantic Love). Box42 packs together that perfect mix with new mystery date night activities every month. On top of that, as small business entrepreneurs themselves, Caroline and Jay’s subscription box promotes small independent food and drinks brands during this challenging time. Every box includes unique brands to sample and support. Box42 is creating new ways for couples to enjoy life together into our ‘new normal’.
From the 20th of May, Box 42 taking new orders on www.thebox42.co.uk and sending date nights to couples across the UK.
