KEEPING THE RELATIONSHIP FUN
By Staff Writer
None of us like to see the excitement drift out of our relationships. When we first begin dating our significant others, there is so much newness to immerse ourselves in–new conversations, new experiences as a couple, new ways of expressing love and gratitude. However, when the feeling of fresh beginnings fades away, we may lose sight of the importance of keeping the relationship exciting. Below are five ideas that can help to keep you and your partner creating new memories.
•Try New Things•
Experiencing new things with your partner can be very enjoyable. Explore new cities with your partner. Eat at different restaurants, watch interesting movies, or attempt different activities. This can be great way to create long lasting memories.
There is nothing wrong with spicing things up in the bedroom from time to time. Maybe light some candles that lead the way from the front door to the living room. Or leave little notes with special, sexy directions for your partner that eventually lead to the best gift–you! Get creative.
•Write Love Letters•
It may not sound like much, but leaving random love notes for your partner can be a lovely and easy surprise. An unexpected handwritten love note can be such an intimate form of expression that can mean so much to your significant other. Take a few moments to put your feelings onto paper and leave the note some place where your partner will eventually spot it. Who knows? You may find one next.
•Incorporate Date Nights•
All of our life responsibilities can get the best of us and cause us to lose sight of the things and people who need our attention. Make an effort to schedule weekly date nights with your partner that are simply for you and your partner. This could be a regular Friday night occurrence or a weekly lunch date as a break from work. Put it on your calendar and commit to it just like all of your other obligations.
•Work Towards a Common Goal•
Setting a goal to work towards with your partner is one way to build a better, stronger bond. It can be anything from financial milestones, fitness goals, educational goals or anything else that you and your partner agree upon. Working towards goals as a team can provide you all with new things to talk about and different activities to engage in together.
