Valentine’s Day is here again, and romance is in the air (like it or not).
Romance tends to come easily in the early days of any relationship. From the suspense of waiting for your partner’s next phone call, to candlelit conversation that seems to flow effortlessly, those butterflies sure do flutter!
But whether your romance is brand new or built on a foundation of 50 years, we can all benefit from a little help from time to time. So this Valentine’s Day season, try out one of these ideas, and see what you cook up. What romantic ideas have you tried in the past?
Do Something New
If variety is the spice of life—when’s the last time you spiced things up? Try breaking up your day-to-day routines by finally trying out a new activity or hobby. This is especially true if you’re trying to deepen the bond with a man in your life.
According to anthropologist Dr. Helen Fisher, the novelty of new experiences triggers the release of dopamine in the brain, and this is especially true for men, who are by nature more action-oriented.
Check out local community centers in your town for affordable, often even free classes and activities to try out together. Salsa dancing? Photography? Scuba certification? Find something new and go for it!
And this routine-buster doesn’t have to cost money—creativity is priceless. “I fell in love with the woman who would become my wife,” one Xyngular employee tells us, “when she ‘kidnapped’ me one evening, and surprised me with a blanket and a clear night sky in the mountains near our town. There was a meteor shower and we both still talk about it years later.”
Whether you and your significant other are gym rats, weekend warriors, or couch potatoes, getting your heart rates up will also boost those heartthrob vibes. Even taking a walk around the block, or around a local park or pond can pay big dividends. Studies referenced in Psychology Today indicate that couples reported feeling more satisfied, more in love, and more connected with their partners after engaging in physical activity together.
Especially if you are on a weight-loss journey, either together or individually, having a supportive workout partner can be a game-changer. Check out this blog post for 5 ways a workout partner can help you step up your game.
And don’t forget to make it a fun experience for both of you! Praise your partner for every improvement and compliment every chance you get.
And there’s nothing wrong with checking them out while they work up a sweat either! ;)
Heating things up in the kitchen can be a great way to spend some time together, and is sure to heat things up in your relationship as well. And you don't have to be Michelin star-worthy chefs to cook up something delicious together. Working together in the kitchen can help you both work on your verbal and non-verbal communication skills, a key for developing greater intimacy and emotional connection.
