Date night is always fun and exciting in the early stages of a relationship. Even the basic drinks, dinner, and a movie scenario is novel when there is so much to learn and share with a prospective new love interest. While the relationship may be blossoming in a healthy and desirable manner, as the relationship progresses couples often find that something different to do together along the way can sometimes present a challenge.
At times, many couples-even those that are in happy and healthy relationships- describe feeling “stalled” or in a “rut” in their relationship. The next time you and your partner are looking at your weekend schedule and wondering just how to broaden your horizons and enhance your experiences together, consider one of these unusual options:
A great relationship is built on continuing growth in life and in experiences. Don’t get stuck in a relationship rut by living in constant rewind when it comes to spending quality time with your partner. Life is more enjoyable when time is spent participating in shared activities that help and both partners grow together.
