By Contributing Advice Expert View more articles
Sure couples do a lot of things together, but not everything they do is necessarily beneficial for their relationship. If you are looking for a way to improve your love life and bond with your significant other at a deeper and more meaningful level, there are some activities we advise you to try. Here are some of the most popular bonding activities for you and your partner:
#1: Travel Together
It doesn't have to be something too complicated, lengthy or even expensive. Plan a short itinerary together, pack your bags and be on your way. Discover the local park or a nearby city and imagine you are a romantic couple on their first journey together. If you can afford it, take a room by the hour and get the romance going!
#2: Go Dancing
Yes, I know, you can't dance, or your partner can't, but let me remind you, there is no such thing as "can't dance"! Look at babies, they dance before they can walk. Dancing together creates an amazing way for you and your partner to connect with each other. Try some dancing lessons, go out dancing or just turn on the music at home and let the music do its trick.
#3: Do A Puzzle or Play a Game Together
I am sure you have heard that relationships are like a jigsaw puzzle but did you know that puzzles are also good for your relationship? Puzzles are excellent forms of therapy to get rid of some of the stress and daily hassle and building a puzzle together can be great for your relationship, for the same reasons. If you are looking for a purely relaxing activity that will help both of you unwind, do a puzzle. Choose a theme you both enjoy, play some relaxing music, light some candles to set a more serene mood, and start working on your puzzle, pull out a deck of cards or board game. You don't even have to leave the bed. Stay under the covers and try your luck together playing some casino games online on your mobile or an online crossword. Anything that can bring you together, under the covers, and help you share a nice experience will help you grow as a couple.
Is sharing a hobby really that important?
Keep in mind, sharing a hobby does not mean one should give up his own passionate hobbies. It is imperative to remain independent and enjoy a fair share of alone time. Shared interests can make a relationship run smoothly and it is nice to enjoy doing things together but a healthy relationship has room both for individual and shared hobbies. Couples that have managed to maintain some shared interests or activities during the busy years of raising small children, run a better chance of a successful and healthy relationship also in the later years.
It is also important to remember that it is never too late to start doing things together and discover a new side of yourself or of your partner. You may not like everything you try at first, however, it is important to give everything a try and be open about it. Why not try a new sport like mountain biking or hiking, taking some cooking lessons together or visiting local museums. We guarantee you will discover quite a few interesting things about your partner and view them from a whole different perspective, but most importantly, it will help you bond together as a couple.
