Having a new relationship is very exciting. All those butterflies in your stomach that keep you from sleeping, daydreaming, and feeling like the world is at your feet. But it is expected that these feelings will fade over time. It might seem like the relationship is getting boring, but that doesn’t have to be the case. There are a lot of things you can do to get back together with an old flame or make a mature relationship exciting again. Let’s look at some great ways to change things up and get the butterflies flying again.
The Surprise Factor
There are always a lot of surprises at the start of a new relationship. Even though you don’t know your partner very well yet and don’t know how they’ll react or what they like, both of you are eager to find out and do your best to please and impress each other. You might think that nothing can surprise you anymore as time goes on, but you’ll be glad to hear that’s not true. Bringing a small gift home, making a romantic meal from scratch, or planning a surprise trip can do a lot and keep things interesting.
Make sure the bedroom is hot.
Let’s not forget how important physical closeness is to a relationship. You know your partner well enough that you can guess what they want in the bedroom, but that doesn’t mean you should always do the same thing. Check out what the industry of bodily pleasures has to offer, such as toys, essential oils, and tips on what can really get you going. Talk to your partner about what you’d like to try, and you might be surprised at what you decide to do. Figuring out new fantasies can lead to a lot of different sexual experiments. Whether you’re playing a romantic role in satin sheets or pegging, you’re sure to have a lot of fun on your journey of sexual discovery.
Set a New Goal for Everyone
People get closer and their relationships get stronger when they work on things together. Find something that makes you both happy, doesn’t stress you out, and lets you both do your part. It could be saving up for a special trip, working out together to get the body you want, volunteering and helping others, or even redecorating your home. All of these options can be done on a budget and can help you come up with ideas that you will act on. Not only will you be able to talk to each other better and always have something to talk about, but you’ll also be able to enjoy the results of your work together, giving you both a feeling of accomplishment that can’t be replaced.
Date each other.
This is something that shouldn’t be forgotten or put down to the beginning of the relationship. Date nights show that the romance hasn’t died and that you can still have a fun night out when it’s just you and your partner. Planning a date is almost as fun as going on one, or you can surprise your partner by taking them to their favourite place. For a few hours, you forget about your kids, your mortgage, your job, and your parents, and you only think about making each other happy.
Join each other in a hobby
It can be a lot of fun to start a new hobby with a friend. Find out what you both find interesting and fun, and then go for it. It could be a language class so you can both learn it, a fun sport, dancing, making pottery, or any number of other things. This will give you a chance to help each other outside of the house and share the fun of taking on something new. Also, it’s a great chance to meet new and interesting people and make new friends.
Entertain More Often
When was the last time you had some friends over for a meal or just to chat over drinks? In all stages of a relationship, socialising is very important, so if you haven’t done it in a while, you should try it again. Make brunches or dinners together, throw parties, or even put on themed events with games and costumes. It has been shown that spending time with other people, especially other couples, is good for a relationship.
Just Have Fun
If you promise not to get upset when you lose, playing games with your partner is a great way to kill time. You can play card games, board games, or even video games to get away from your worries and just have fun. You can also do some research and go shopping for a new game that you’ll both like, or you can just borrow one from your kids and see what they were so excited about when they were playing.
You shouldn’t be afraid of the changes and stability that come with being together for a long time. It’s a chance to try new things, get some much-needed rest, and remember how great it was to be so committed to each other. You’ll have fun the whole time you’re working on making your relationship stronger and better.
