MARRIED TO YOUR BEST FRIEND-KEEP IT FUN

MARRIED TO YOUR BEST FRIEND KEEP YOUR  RELATIONSHIP NEW AND FUN 

If you want to be married to your best friend forever keep the relationship fun and exciting. The longer you’re together the better you know one another. They say familiarity breeds contempt but it doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, the better you know one another’s likes and dislikes the more new and fun things you can do together that you will both enjoy. Unlike when you first started dating and you were learning each other’s likes and dislikes, now you know your partner’s taste and preferences, so you can plan fun and exciting things to do that you know the two of you will enjoy. Sharing these new experiences will strengthen your bond and make memories for you that will last a lifetime

 

 FOR MEN

Remember when you were first dating and you wanted to do everything with your partner?  You still can be married to your best friend by creating fun time together. However, Somehow you stopped being that couple and let other things get in the way. The key to making your relationship fun again is to remember common interests and make some new experiences and memories with the one you love. That continues the focus of being married to your best friend and not letting other things get in the way. 

 

FOR WOMEN

Get out of your comfort zone. Do some things you normally wouldn’t. Your partner will see another side of you and it will add a deeper connection to your relationship. Think back to before you were a ouple. Were you willing to go with your partner anywhere just to be with them? Reignite that fire by having new adventures, playing together and rediscovering what brought you both together in the beginning. These memories you create together will last a lifetime.

FOUR THINGS YOU CAN START DOING WITH YOUR PARTNER TO KEEP THE LOVE ALIVE 

1. Make the Time for Date Night

Don’t over complicate this. Your date night can be assimple as a walk downtown to enjoy some local music at a coffeehouse or a movie together at home. Hold hands kiss, and sit on the same side of the table. Whatever it isthat you decide to do, it should be FUN and all about thetwo of you.

 2. A Day Trip Brings Fun to Light

If you have an interest in hiking or biking (or any outdoor activities), there are tons of things you can do together. Day trips are a fun way to connect while learning someplace new.

3. The Weekend Rendezvous 

Choose a few destinations that you both want to visit and you and pull one out of a hat. Plan a weekend for the two of you with fun activities. This creates the experience of being married to your bes friend and the relationship not being a struggle. Be sure you make time in between for romantic interludes with no distractions. Have fun!

4. Push Yourselves (Together)

Challenge each other in healthy ways. You both might want to do something like bungee jumping or skydiving.This willingness to support and push each other gives yousome fun and healthy competition, but also shows your partner how you’re willing to do anything for and with them!
