There comes a time when our relationships become routine. We get married, have 10,000 babies, and lose the spark we once had. We wake up, say hi to each other, go to work, come home, say hi again, and go to bed. Then we get up and do it all over again the next day.
This is something I try very hard to avoid. I never want to lose that spark.
The best relationships are when you get along like best friends. I can honestly say I have never been bored in my entire relationship of four years.
For cereal, just laying in the dark is entertaining enough. Me and my boyfriend try anything to keep the other one laughing.
Here’s a list of 30 unexpected ways we’ve had fun in our relationship.
If you’re having difficulty in your relationship, it might be helpful to talk to an online couples counselor! Using Talkspace makes couple’s therapy super flexible and convenient, as you only need your phone or web browser.
