Dear Dish-it: How Do I Spice Up My Relationship?

Dear Dish-it,

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?

BoredBF

Dear BoredBF,

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.

Date Ideas                                                             

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.

Yes you're totally right It is a life changing decision. I mean I am going to try and talk with her about it but then again she is 23 an adult so she's at that age that she can make her own choices in life, whether its good or bad. Um but yeah I will definitely tell her how I feel about it. I really don't want to lose her to the gang life, kinda feels like I already am but I'm hoping she'll understand my decision. Thanks.

Well she's already officially a member. I'll try and talk to her about it though, I kinda know why she joined, because she likes the excitement of it, the money and the sense of family. I already feel like I am going to lose her to the gang life.

That is the type of decision capable of changing your life. However, if you don't want to be part of it (And I highly recommend not engaging in that sort of lifestyle), then as hugebear said, you should sit your sister down and explain to her why you do not want to be part of a gang and maybe since you're afraid to lose her, explain that just because you want no part in it does not mean you want to lose her as well.

Me advices is talk to her.  Tell her exactly what your feeling and you doesnt want to join and ask her why she is joining.  Tell her why you think she shouldnt and also add that you feels that you will lose her if she does.

So my big sister just recently told me she was in a gang, I kinda already figured she was but I never asked. I don't really know how to feel about it. She's like my best friend, I can come to her for anything and I'd do anything for her! Anyways she asked me if I wanted to join the family, I haven't really given her an answer yet, and she keeps trying to pull one out of me so I jokingly asked what gang she was in and she told me she was a crip.Telling me that she and her boys will have my back and stuff... I don't want to lose her if i say no but I also don't want to be in a gang.  =(
