In order for your relationship to be as fresh and romantic as it was on the first day that you met it is important that the two of you still have fun together. This means injecting a little spontaneity into the relationship every day if possible. Spontaneity and fun matter are crucial to the success of a long-term relationship because:
Plan a quick whimsical little trip together into nature gathers flowers, driftwood or beach glass
Sometimes the more aimless and pointless the activity is, the more fun it is for both of you. Bring your collection home and make a little altar celebrating your love with it somewhere in your backyard or in your home.
Plan a little getaway together where you steal something together
Being partners in crime is a deeply bonding experience. For instance, you could drive to the abandoned apple orchard and steal some apples to make some Stolen Apple Pie or to a field to pick blueberries or flowers.
If it is winter, go outside and build a snowman or ice sculpture together
You can even go all out and build an ice village or some other type of interesting sculpture. While you are at it, make a few snow angels in the show. Once you are back inside, you will want some hot chocolate and to snuggle up together in bed to get warm.
Go to a Wal-Mart or a similar store. Both of you have exactly thirty minutes to pick out ten pairs of underwear for each other. You can make another rule for this game, as in, you must buy the ugliest underwear possible or the sexiest.
Decide to take in a flick at an old-fashioned drive in theater
You might have to drive a long way to find them, as they tend to be in smaller towns or cottage country, but imagine the fun that you will have making out in the car, with the speaker attached to your window, just like a couple of smitten teenagers.
Go to the dollar store together with ten dollars each and buy each other a gift bag full of goodies
The rules of this fun spontaneous activity are that you cannot spend more than one dollar per gift and that the gift must be useful, meaningful or highly unusual. This is, even more, fun if you wrap each gift individually before putting it in your bag.
Decide that the two of you will do some good in this world by getting outside and picking up litter together
Not only is this good exercise, but also you will meet some interesting people and feel good about each other. Organizing a team to help you clean up a local beach or park is also a very rewarding and fun activity.
This is a game that is enjoyable, but not so physically taxing that you cannot enjoy a little chat with each other. Miniature golf courses are also enchanting places with ponds pools and miniature buildings that are perfect for taking selfish of yourself as a couple.
If you can't physically get away, try shaking up your daily household routines by doing wacky things such as having your dessert for breakfast, having a shower together or bringing takeout home and having a picnic in the living room
The more inventive you are with these ideas, the better.
If you cannot physically get away, bring home the ingredients to make some kind of dinner that you have never made before
For instance, try boiling your own lobsters or making a special ice cream pizza together. Make sure the food is exotic and a bit of a challenge to make, or else you will just be creating another typical supper.
Boiling your own lobsters for the first time can be exciting.
If you are stuck at home, put an old movie on and mute the sound
It is up to you to supply the dialogue beneath the silent film. You can also do this with modern films and television shows as well. This fun game works well with couples who are witty or who have a creative bent.
If you cannot get away, decide to pitch a tent in the backyard and sleep out there together
You could even build a little campfire and roast some marshmallows or play Scrabble by flashlight inside of your pitched pup tent. Activities that are a little child-like such as this can help the two of you bond as if you are teens who are very best friends.
Greet your partner by dressing up as a butler or maid
Then proceed to wait on her hand and foot, bringing him or her a drink, the newspaper and anything else that he or she could want. Make sure that your partner knows that you are there to service him or her in any way that you possibly can.
Dress up as a maid or butler to add some excitement.
In the privacy of your bedroom, blindfold each other and feed each other exotic foods
Good choices are strawberries dipped in chocolate, oysters, pickled artichokes and other aphrodisiacs. This is not only a good way to keep your memory and taste buds sharp; it is also a good way to prepare the scene for romance later.
Even though it is not a significant day, make a time capsule together
During this bonding ritual, you will put a few precious mementos of your love together and then bury them in a box in your backyard or in some other special place. Then hide a piece of paper in your house somewhere with a reminder of where the box is buried. Promise that neither o you will open the box until twenty years have passed.
If you are stuck at home together, try making a few prank calls for fun
Combine this activity with a couple of beers and you will soon have quite a bit of hilarity on your hands. Stay away from phoning emergency services and only prank those friends of yours that love a good joke or those companies that have been sending telemarketers your way.
First of all, scour the papers for wedding announcements and the locations of a wedding. Dress your best and then once you are there, amuse each other by pretending to be friends of the bride and groom. Be sure to enjoy a little dancing and food while you are at it.
Make some new friends and a crash a wedding reception.
