Do you have fun with your partner? Or have you forgotten how to? Has life become so serious and the responsibility of it all got to you. To the point that it all feels like hard work all round?
I see so many couples out together looking really bored or miserable. They don’t seem connected, often just sniping or growling at each other. Unable to say two civil words to each other, unable to have fun together.
I also see couples who though they are together just aren’t present with each other. By that I mean whilst they are in the same place physically, they just aren’t connecting with each other. Of course, there are comfortable silences in any good relationship, but that isn’t the same as being bored with each other. Just not wanting to be with each other.
I feel sad for them as they seem to be missing so much. Just because we get older it doesn’t mean we have to lose a sense of fun.
The ability to laugh together, or be playful often lost.
• Play board games or cards together
• Go for a walk and play ‘eye- spy’ whilst out
• Plan a holiday
• Cook a meal together – trying out a new recipe
• Go for a local walk where you haven’t been before
• Have a bath together
If you allow your relationship to get boring and stale you will lose the connection.. And the relationship could end with one of you looking elsewhere to have fun. If this sounds familiar, take action and put the fun back into your relationship, or if it’s got to a really difficult point and you both need to talk with the help of a professional, you can get in touch with me here to book an appointment.
