Anyone who has been in a long term relationship will tell you that no matter how much you love the other person, things do get old and boring after awhile.
You tend to fall back on your routines and right into a rut. Every once in a while you remember what it was like in the beginning, and think Why can’t it be like that again? Your most probably both thinking this, the problem is that you think it, and usually don’t actually talk about it.
To help put that spark back in your relationship you both need to work at it. For instance a good solution to bring you closer would be to start a hobby together or try a new experience as a couple, this would:
- Give you a new challenge
- Give you something to concentrate on
- Give you something to aim for
- Bring you closer together
Even a common interest you both share, something as simple as watching a movie or a television programme together that you’d both enjoy could help you feel more together and help.
One of the big things that most people seem to forget about relationships, is that even though you are dating it is still a friendship, and friendships require fun. Being a couple is not always about being all over each other, it is about enjoying each others company as well. Go out and have a laugh, relax for the night and have fun just being around your partner, they will probably enjoy this just as much as you.
