After her mom dance-a-thon skit with late-night TV host Jimmy Fallon, first lady Michelle Obama sat down on the show's couch and admitted that date night in the White House isn't as romantic as it was before her husband became the leader of the free world, according to the Huffington Post.

Of course, it's well known that the first couple are quite a lovey-dovey pair. Michelle tells Jimmy that her first date with the president was a day-long affair, complete with a trip to the museum, a romantic stroll, a movie and drinks.

"He was really working it," she said.

Nowadays, the Obamas don't have the same romantic freedom when it comes toplanning their dates. Michelle set the scene for a typical night out with the hubby: "We try to do date nights; it's a little tough. Barack has a 20-car motorcade, men with guns, the ambulance is always there. How romantic can you be?"
