When you are in a relationship it should be fun and full of activities that don’t involve sitting in front of the TV or lounging about the house. Think outside the box a bit, and do something a little more exciting to stop your relationship becoming, well, boring. There are so many fun things you could do together at least once, or on a recurring basis. Here are just five top moments that every couple should experience together
1 Make dinner together
For foodies, this is a very simple but a great way for you both to connect. If you can give each other direction, delegate tasks and work side by side with your partner in the kitchen, this is a good sign for both of you. You can make this a weekly activity and have themed dinner evenings, whether one or both of you like Indian, Italian, South-East Asian or Scandinavian cuisine. You could take cooking classes together if you enjoy it, or even pretend to be restaurateurs!
2 A trip to the seaside
What’s more romantic than taking a walk on an unspoiled beach and feeling the waves washing over your feet?Spend your time spoiling each other on a weekend break that is designed perfectly just for the two of you, where you can reconnect and spend some time away from work, in Torquay, South Wales, Whitby, Hunstanton…wherever! You might also want to stay in sea view cottages and enjoy waking up to the sound of the coast.
3 Go on a picnic
You need to enjoy the outdoors once in a while and what better way to do it than with one another? This could be an extension of making dinner together, by preparing little nibbles and treats to be shared later al fresco. It’s a very ‘Instagrammable’ thing to do; put together some of your favorite snacks to eat, grab a picnic blanket, maybe a bottle of fizz and find that perfect spot in the local park or venture out and explore the woodland areas.
4 Go dancing
As shown by Strictly’s fantastic viewing figures, dancing is popular, and one of the most fun and romantic things that thousands of people enjoy every week. Whether you head to a nightclub together or go ballroom dancing, it might seem a little awkward and corny at first. However, after a few minutes, you will forget all your troubles, and it will feel perfect and romantic. Not only will you be spending some quality time together you can wow your friends with your moves on your next night out!
Regardless of the situation, some people think that home massages are much better than going to a spa; they are more intimate, not to mention cheaper. All you need is a towel and some oil. In addition to all this, you will be getting massaged by your other half, which may be far less awkward than a stranger getting their hands on you. If you’ve never done it before, carry out some research and then go for it.
