Hobbies you can do as a couple

When the honeymoon phase ends, your relationship will slow down, and you may feel like it gets boring. It doesn’t mean you don’t love your partner anymore, it means you just need to bring back the spark in your relationship again. Having fun with your partner is important for keeping the relationship fresh.

If you want to bring back the spark or spend more quality time with your partner, then you need to have hobbies together.

Spending time together will help you get to know each other better, and build affection and trust.

How can hobbies make your relationship stronger?

  • Hobbies are stress-relievers since they’re an escape from the routine
  • Hobbies bring fun in the relationship
  • When couples pursue good hobbies, they won’t have time for negative and wasteful thoughts
  • Hobbies will teach couples to be patient since learning a new skill requires patience
  • Couples learn to work in a team
  • When a couple shares a hobby, they’ll have more common topics to talk about
  • Couples will make more memories together

Having hobbies together will strengthen your bond while learning new skills. You’ll learn to appreciate each other on different levels. So, here are our favorite ideas for outdoor and indoor hobbies.

Dancing

Dancing is first because it’ll bring you closer both mentally and physically. Dancing is romantic and sultry. Learning choreographed moves together to music you both like, it’ll build coordination, physical health, and mental acuity. Master a sexy salsa or a ballroom waltz – the choices are endless! If you don’t want a choreographed dance, just go out and hit the dance floor!

Cooking

Whether it’s Spanish or Chinese, learning a new cuisine together will be much fun. You get to enjoy and be creative, but also you’ll learn new things. This is an ideal partner activity since every chef needs an assistant.

You can take a cooking class, but there are also many online classes and video tutorials that you can watch at home. You just need to delegate the tasks properly and enjoy the cooking process fully! You’ll have a blast coming up with creative and tasty new dishes!

Yoga

Learn an outdoor game

It could be golf, tennis, baseball, or basketball – you choose! Play it whenever you have time. This is another great way to burn stress and calories.

Gardening 

It requires some work but it’s a fun and rewarding activity. Garden for fun with flowers or you can grow your food and eat healthier. 

Travel

Traveling is the most wonderful and unforgettable experiences you can have as a couple! You’ll create memories that will last forever! It’s even more exciting if you go on themed trips. For example, if you both share an interest in wine, then you should look for some wineries and go on wine tasting!

Signs that you are in a loveless marriage

Here are some possible signs that you are in a loveless marriage. It is important to be honest with yourself and do an inventory of your emotions.

Divorce is hard, but so is being in a loveless marriage. Don’t stay in a relationship where you get nothing out of it. 

If you identify with some (of all) these signs, talk with your spouse partner, and look for a couple’s counselor. We know that every marriage can go through rough patches. But sometimes, a rough patch can stretch into rough months or even years. So, if you feel you are experiencing a lengthy rough patch, it is time to stop and see what you want from your marriage.

However, determining the difference between a “rough patch” and a persisting problem is not so simple. To help you, here are the signs that you might be in a loveless marriage. Start noticing the red flags.

Your partner constantly criticize you – or vice versa

Yes, we all get cranky. It is okay to be annoyed if your partner never picks a restaurant. However, it’s crucial to understand whether your frustration comes from a lack of respect for your spouse, or if you are having a bad day. If you use terms like ‘always’ and ‘never,’ you are not just criticizing them – you are assassinating their character. So, look out for the way you criticize your partner. 

But there are ways of criticizing that are not personal attacks. Instead of saying “you are a bad listener, say “I feel bad when you care more about Facebook than what I have to tell you.” 

Couples avoid each other in a loveless marriage 

Do you find yourself spending more time roaming through the store or staying longer at work so you don’t have to go home to your partner? Do you both spend time on your phones when you are supposed to watch a movie? Do you go to bed at different times? These could be signs that you are unsatisfied and in a loveless marriage.

As you grow more distant with your partner, there might be discomfort or even a sense of repulsion when you are spending time together. If you feel like “yourself” when you are alone, with friends, or even at work, you may consider ending the marriage. If you feel uncomfortable when you think about your spouse coming back into the picture, you have a real problem.

The connection stops in a loveless marriage 

Do you feel numb? In a loveless marriage, hostility and conflict are replaced by a cold calm. Couples say ‘thank you’ and ‘please’, they work as a team to parent and maintain a home, but they are no longer part of a team in an emotional sense. If you don’t put in the effort to give compassion, show vulnerability, be friends, you are no longer partners. Your spouse has become the equivalent of a roommate that you want to avoid.

Signs that you shouldn’t start a relationship

To protect yourself and not get hurt, it would be smart to pay attention to some signs before you start a serious relationship.

In some situations, it is more than obvious that the person you are seeing will be the perfect partner for a serious relationship, but sometimes their behavior can make you doubt it.

Below you can see the warning signs that you should not start a relationship with the person you like at the moment.

They constantly cancel plans

How many times have you prepared to go out with this person, and they canceled on you at the last minute? It can happen to all of us to cancel a plan because something unexpected has come up. But if this happens too often, then this person does not value your time or you at all. Therefore, do not waste your time with them.

They hide you from everyone

It is normal at the beginning not to tell everyone that you have someone new in your life. We all have been there – we are not sure if we will continue to see that person, so we keep things to ourselves. However, if you see each other for a long time and this person is still hiding from your friends, something is wrong.

Do they avoid going to a restaurant or any public place and always suggest going to their place or yours? Do they always find an excuse not to meet even their best friends? If yes, ask yourself why.

They still complain about their ex

Maybe they are just whiny, or they might have unresolved issues with their former partner. You do not have to listen to them. Trust us – that never ends well. Your dates shouldn’t feel like counseling sessions. You do not have to keep all your romantic plans aside because you have to console them. 

They are NEVER available

This is one of the signs you should never ignore. You do not want to be with a person who never replies to your messages, doesn’t take your calls, and NEVER calls back. How do you expect them to be there for you when they don’t even take your calls? 

They do not want you to be friends on social networks

Social networks are an important part of our lives today, so if the person you like uses them but does not want to be online friends, they are hiding something.

Calling you only at night (or when drunk)

If this person likes you, they will not think of you only at night or when they are bored. If you have noticed that they call you and send you messages only in the evening or after drinking alcohol, it is not worth spending your time with them.

signs

They change their attitude all the time 

One day they treat you like you are the most important person in the world for them, but the next they forget that you exist. Did you go out with this person and have a wonderful time, but the next day they did not write you one message? Well, this person is not interested in you, and you shouldn’t hope that they will change.

They tell you that they are not ready for a relationship

But that is confusing, right? They don’t want you to be in a relationship, but they still flirt with you and call you? Although it is difficult to accept this, they are probably just using you. If you want something serious, but they always have an excuse why not to start a relationship, it is time to find someone else.
