It’s not where you go for date night that counts; it’s how connected you feel when it’s over.

Introducing Up Date, a connection tool for couples that transforms chit chat into fun, playful, engaging conversations. Each month we mail a beautifully designed, two-sided card filled with engaging questions, connective games and thoughtful inquiries that dramatically upgrade your quality of conversation and the depth of your connection.

Crafted each month by professional writers and improv comedians, each card has a fresh new set of activities, questions and topics to tackle.

Take it with you to dinner or bring it out while you snuggle on the couch. Up Date is designed to create instant laughter and closeness wherever you are.


Each month we'll mail you a new Up Date connection card filled with questions, games, and ice breaker activities that help you play, reminisce and have deeper conversations than the busyness of day-to-day life usually allows. 

You can take your card with you to a restaurant, on a walk, or just sit on the couch at home. The connection Up Date facilitates can happen anywhere! 

Laugh… play… connect… and add some zip and zest to your couple time. Up Date is the perfect antidote to your date night rut. 

Subscription cost is $9.95 per month, + shipping/tax. You can cancel any time. BUY NOW


Up Date was created by Kristen Manieri. After 15 years of marriage and 12 years of blogging about date night, Kristen has realized one universal truth: connection is the most important byproduct of date night… a good meal or movie is just the icing on the cake. What couples really need on a consistent basis is a way to laugh and talk. And not just about the household management stuff, but about life and dreams and the wonderful memories they’ve created together. Up Date is the antidote to boring conversations and date nights that have fallen into a rut.
