Hey guys, welcome back to another post!
Hope you’re all doing well and not freezing to death (That’s if you’re in a Country thats currently coldddddd).
Today I have a post that is mainly useful for couples, but I guess anyone can take note because you don’t have to be in a couple 🙂
So I’ve been with my boyfriend for nearly 4 year and I believe every couple needs to go out and do fun things together from time to time. After all, that’s half the benefit of having a partner — having a partner in crime to drag out for evenings on the town or visits to interesting attractions during the day.
Once you’ve been with your significant other (hmm maybe not so significant sometimes) for a while, however, you might find that the temptation grows for the two of you to just spend each weekend lounging around at home, watching Netflix, eating ice cream, and sharing the latest social media gossip with each other. Jordan and I spend most of our evenings in bed. When I say we’re in bed by 8:30pm most nights, I’m not lying. We’re always so tired the bed seems to call our names and off we go!
While there’s nothing wrong with a good lazy evening in together, here are some tips for fun couples outings that can make your weekends that much more interesting, and give you something to talk about in the days, months, and years ahead.
Go to a really fancy restaurant
If you’ve got any kind of romantic partner (can someone find me one plsssssss LOL), it’s very nearly a certainty that you will have visited a restaurant together at least a few hundred times in the early days of your relationship.
But have you ever been to a really fancy restaurant?
Going to a really fancy restaurant for a date is the kind of thing you’ll probably have to save up for and research well in advance, and it’s the kind of experience you might not want to repeat on a very regular basis – especially when you have a mortgage, a dog and a million things on your to-do list (help)!.
Every couple should try it at least once, though. It provides the perfect backdrop to everything fairy tale’esque’, it offers the perfect excuse for properly going to town and dressing up (because we all like dressing up once in a while don’t we).
Go extreme with activities
The definition of “extreme activities” being used here is a bit loose; think less full contact rugby or boxing, and more high-adrenaline but relatively safe activities like Go Karting, or even bungee jumping or skydiving.
I think t’s good to have a real adrenaline rush and experience that together as a couple – it’s always very amusing! Alone, these experiences are exhilarating. For a couple, It’s much more fun together!
Learn something new
Whether it’s a trip to a Ripley’s Believe it or Not museum, learning how to fit dental implants (yes that’s a thing!), or giving an archery session a go, the key here is that the two of you get together to learn something new.
Research has shown that our memories record information most carefully when it’s new or exciting information. Not only is opening yourselves to new experiences one of the keys of forging great couples’ memories for the future, it’s also a great way of discovering future hobbies that the two of you can enjoy together, or even just opening the door to new kinds of information and understanding that you can chat about down the line.
I think it’s important to experience new things together as a couple. It definitely keep things exciting and fresh so it’s worth investing some time looking into different things you can do as a couple!
