Happiness is being married to your best friend. But maybe lately your husband is sitting in front of the TV watching a game while you are sitting on the couch knitting, and you feel that the relationship is more like that of a couple of acquaintances or students who share the apartment by accident than that of better ones. friends.
It does not have to be this way. You can easily revive the flame of love that existed on your dating days if you find activities that you and your partner can enjoy together.
Take an interest in the activities your partner likes
Ladies, don’t think you’re a widow every time there’s a soccer tournament. When the season comes around, learn the rules of the game and memorize some names of the players on your team. You may even come to enjoy supporting your husband’s opposing team.
Men, you like to eat, right? Offer to plan a special dinner and cook together. You can choose your favorite food, or maybe you want to try something different or out of the ordinary.
My husband likes to watch boxing and martial arts. I started looking at him with him. I learned the stories of some athletes, and that made them more interesting for me. I discovered that this sport is not as brutal as it seems at first glance, and that there is a lot of strategy in every fight. Now I really enjoy when we go out to eat something and watch the fight on the spot. It has become a fun way to spend time together.
Invite your partner to try something you like to do
Women: Your husband probably wouldn’t like to sit quietly next to you and knit, but I’m sure there are many other things you do that would entertain him. Share your interests in literature, music and movies with her.
I love books. My husband reads many of the books that I recommend, and after he finishes reading a book we discuss it. It is similar to having our own book club. He, on the other hand, likes to discover new music bands. He shared his new CDs with me and we watched music videos together. We also like to go to concerts.
Men: Do you like to play video games? Invite your wife to play with you. Many video games are multiplayer and easy to learn to play. Some games are more appropriate for your wife than others. You can choose one that includes strategy and planning, and encourage her to create a sexy character and flirt while playing together.
