Ideas for active dates

Are you tired of staying indoors and sticking to the same “Netflix and chill” routine? It’s time to make your life more exciting with some active dates!

But don’t worry – not all active dates have to be sweat sessions. Our date ideas will help you get to know each other better – we have all figured out. These dates will deepen your connection, and they’ll be a breath of fresh air in your romantic life. 

Cycling

Are you looking for exciting ways to catch some rays with your sweetie? The possibilities are endless here: Ride together by the beach, in the park, through the city, or wherever works for both of you. Even a moderately paced ride will give your metabolism a boost. So, you can fit this exercise while enjoying the company of your partner. 

Active date: Practicing yoga together

A restorative or gentle yoga class together means no sweat and many bonding benefits, creating a deeper connection. Try to find a yoga class on the beach or in a park to increase the romance factor. It’s best to make yoga a regular thing since many studies show it boosts desire and arousal.

Dining al fresco

Even if you’re in a long-term relationship, don’t forget to relax. Have a picnic lunch, light a fire on the beach and talk until sunrise, or visit your favorite food truck and hang out. These are great ways to enjoy each other’s company and remind yourselves why you’re together. Also, dining outside is a bit unusual and mysterious, which are both excellent ingredients for extra passion in the relationship.

Active date: Hitting the beach

Put on your bathing suits, sunglasses, and sandals and head for a fun day on the beach. There are endless enjoyable activities you can engage in there, whether you play volleyball, learn to surf, go boogie boarding, or simply soaking up the sun’s rays as you have deep conversations. And if you choose to stay longer on the beach, you’ll catch the sunset, which is perfect for some romance. 

Dancing

There are many benefits of dancing together! You’ll learn each other’s bodies better since you’ll be close up. Try out different styles, from ballroom and tango to sensual salsa or line dancing, so you can find the one you both enjoy. Don’t forget to flirt, laugh, and have fun, even if you step on each other’s feet repeatedly.

Active date: Visiting an amusement park

If you go to an amusement park, you can show off your fun personality. This date is best if you’re both thrill-seekers. But if you aren’t fans of scary rides and roller coasters, you can always visit theme parks focused on a younger audience.

Take a road trip together

There isn’t a better bonding activity than this one! Cue up your playlist and see where the road takes you. Being in such a small compartment with your partner is a good way of checking your threshold. 

Don’t forget to have fun – check out the interesting roadside attractions and play some road trip games. Or have some karaoke sessions! Couples who travel together – stay together. They’re also happier and more satisfied than couples who don’t.

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.
