A Guide to a More Thrilling Relationship
If you are in a long-term relationship, you know that you have to work to keep the spark alive. If you are finding your relationship in a lull, it is time to reignite your spark. You can create a more thrilling relationship by doing some simple and fun things that both of you will enjoy. Plan to do something that will make your relationship more thrilling about once a week to keep the spark alive.
Get Scared Together
Letting yourselves get scared is an excellent way to add some excitement to your relationship. This does not mean doing something dangerous, but watch a scary movie or go to a haunted house together. Do something that makes your pulse race so that you can feel the excitement as a couple. Just remember that this should be something that is fun scary and not something actually scary. Think about things that the both of you enjoy and choose the fun scary activity based on your preferences so that you can be sure that you will both enjoy it.
Start Betting on Things
When you make a bet, it makes a situation far more interesting and it adds some pizzazz to your relationship. Think of something that you both enjoy that you can bet on. For example, if you both like basketball and one of your teams are playing, one of you bet on the team you like and the other can bet on the opponent. Make this a fun bet for $10 or $20, or even for a round of drinks on your next date, depending on the length of your relationship. This adds some spark into your relationship that would not be there otherwise.
Share Some Secrets with Each Other
Few things are more exciting than sharing some secrets with each other. Even if you have been together for years, you surely have a secret or two that you have yet to spill. Just keep it light, such as admitting that you hide chocolate from your partner. If there is a secret that could damage your relationship, it is best to keep this to yourself. The whole point here is to keep things fun and share things that will make your relationship closer and more intimate. This adds some fun back into your relationship and it deepens your connection.
Do Something Daring Together
Getting scared together is a great way to add some thrill, but so is doing something daring. Against, this should not be a dangerous kind of daring that could make either if you injured. Instead, you want to do something like go skinny dipping together because this is both a daring and safe activity. Just think outside the box and pick a few daring activities that are not dangerous and fully legal. This is something the two of you can do about once a month to really keep the spark alive in your relationship.
Recreate the First Date You Had Together
This is a very romantic and cool way to take your relationship to the next level and really add a bit of excitement. Remember what that first date felt like and recreate it exactly as it was. Now, if the two of you have both away from where you had your first date and you are unable to travel back there, recreate it the best that you can. For example, go to the same type of restaurant and wear similar clothes. You will both know that this is meant to represent your first date and it will make this one of the most special nights in your relationship.
Spend a Night Being Children
There are so many times when adult life gets really stressful and both of you wish you could be kids for a day. Well, you can and you should because this adds more fun to your relationship. Spend the day eating junk food, watching your favorite childhood movies, playing childhood games and coloring or making childhood art. This is the perfect escape from the monotony of adulthood and the perfect way to go back to the basics and reconnect on a deeper level.
Use any of the tips above to put the thrill back into your relationship. Choose the tips that best match the interests of you and your partner. With a little time and effort, you will find that it is easy to keep your relationship fun and exciting, no matter how long you two have been together.
This is one of the #1 most comprehensive Psychology Books ever written, and it's free on Kindle (Get a copy, because it's like a Masters Degree wrapped-up into a single book). However, I recommend that you upgrade to the Print edition, because that copy comes with images.
