Dear Dish-it: How Do I Spice Up My Relationship?
I started going out with a girl a few weeks ago. I love her, but our relationship is getting a little boring. What can I do to make it more interesting?
Bored Boyfriend and Girlfriend
If it’s only been a few weeks and your relationship is already boring, something isn’t right. Are you sure this is love and not just a physical crush? If you’re in love, you should be able to sit and talk for hours, or simply cuddle and watch a movie, and not feel bored. You should be enjoying every minute you spend together. Nonetheless, I don’t know the circumstances of your relationship or what you guys do when you’re together, so it’s time to spice things up.
In the early stages of a relationship, there can be a lot of time spent watching TV, playing on your phones or computers, or playing video games - anything to avoid an awkward conversation. If this is the case, you need to do something exciting. Something that will get your adrenaline pumping and will become a memory that you can talk about later in your relationship. Try taking her indoor rock climbing or tubing or to the water slides. If you prefer something a little more low key, try cooking or baking something together. This will require teamwork, which is important in a relationship.
Dates for Less
If you don’t have any money, try volunteering for something together. Volunteering is good for the soul, and it will bring you closer together knowing that you have that charitable connection. Contact the youth center in your city and see what’s available for people your age. You could also have a picnic in the park, lie on a blanket under the stars and try to spot the constellations, teach each other something like a sport or a skill, or play board games.
