After reading this article, you’ll know about five fun new ways you can improve your relationship today.
How Can I Make My Relationship More Fun?
Having fun in a relationship is important! When you’re spending so much of your time with another person, you want to make sure you’re enjoying it.
Trying new things is a great way to make your relationship more fun.
Here are five fun ideas to get you started:
1. Have a Technology-Free Day
Look, a lot of your life takes place on your phone.
If you and your partner are headed to a cute new restaurant, it’s normal to want to snap a few pictures for your Instagram story. If you’re having a movie night, it can be tempting to IMDB every actor on-screen.
But having a day where you stay off your phones can challenge you to stay in the present moments – together.
You might be surprised about what you see in your partner when you’re not distracted by notifications.
2. Take a New Class
Making new memories together is a great way to stay connected to your partner – and taking a class can be a fun way to build them.
Whether you’re into salsa dancing, a wine-and-paint night, or cooking, find a local class to take together.
3. Do Something a Little Bit Dangerous
There’s a reason so many of the dates on The Bachelor involve skydiving and bungee jumping.
Doing something new with your partner can be thrilling – and kicking up your levels of adrenaline can really get your heart racing.
Plus, it’ll give you something exciting to talk about during your next date night.
If jumping out of a plane feels a little too extreme, even something like go-kart racing can be an adrenaline-inducing way to shake things up.
4. Write Love Letters
Did you ever have a pen pal as a kid?
Knowing someone took so much time to write something that you’ll read in a few minutes can make you feel really special.
Getting a hand-written letter in the mail is becoming something of the past – but that doesn’t mean we can’t bring it back.
Try writing love letters to your partner and sending them in the mail. This works great for long-distance couples but can work even if you’re living together!
If you can include some sort of fun surprise or twist in your letters, even better.
5. Check in with a Couples Therapist
Even the strongest couples need an extra boost sometimes.
Seeing a Couples Counsellor can be a great way to have a safe and open discussion about how you’ve been feeling in your relationship.
A therapist or counsellor will have a new perspective that you and your partner might not have even considered.
You don’t have to be in crisis to go to counselling – it’s enough to just recognize that things could be even better than they are right now.
