1)Go on an actual date at least once a week.
Going on dates creates intimate experiences between you and your partner. Plus, it helps you let loose and have fun together, which is important in a relationship. Invite your partner out at least once a week, and look for fun activities you can do with them.Watch for flyers or Facebook events that might be fun, like festivals, live music, or holiday celebrations.Be spontaneous! For instance, ask them to go to the park after dinner to watch the sunset.Variation: Sometimes going out just isn’t an option. When this happens, create a date night at home. For instance, prepare a special candlelit dinner and dance to your favorite songs. If you’re in a long-distance relationship, share dinner and a movie over a video call.
2)Engage in a playful activity to bring you closer.
Playing together allows you to have more fun and to feel relaxed together. This helps you enjoy your time together and get closer to each other. Do playful activities together, such as playing sports, playing board games, going to an arcade, or attending an art class.Make a list of fun things that each of you wants to do. Include things like going to a theme park, playing beach volleyball, and going bowling.
3)Create something together.
Making something requires you and your partner to work on the same goal. This helps you become a better team and may give you something to laugh about. Invite your partner to create something new together. Here are some ideas:Cook a meal.Make a piece of art.Decorate a room.Build a birdhouse.Make holiday decorations.
You likely already celebrate the day you started dating your partner. However, your relationship might have other milestones that you could celebrate. Having special anniversaries that only you share is special and may help bring you closer together, so create silly or personal celebration days with your partner.For instance, let’s say your first weekend trip together took place on the second weekend in October. You might go away for that weekend every year.Similarly, let’s say the first time you tried sushi was on your third date. You might record that day and celebrate “sushi virgin” day every year by trying a new type of fish or a new specialty roll.
