Jon and I finally got around to going on a real date to this nice place right on PCH (Pacific Coast Highway), Javier's (the Crystal Cove location). We shared a fajita platter. The food, the drinks, the atmosphere was -I feel like an old rich white guy when I say this- "top notch." It's probably my favorite restaurant in Orange County...but with the price to show for it. So its reserved only for special treat date nights.
Anyway we had a great time but then near the end of the meal we ended up getting in a pretty big fight. It was sparked mostly by the stress of Jon's impending move to San Francisco in a week. Does anyone else in a long term relationship feel like the pressure of a real date night brings about arguments? I feel like its when you've planned something important and you want the night to go perfectly that any little setback feels worse than it usually does. I feel like if we had been out to coffee, our argument would have been merely a discussion. Thoughts?
