Every relationship requires time and effort, however, thanks to our busy schedules and erratic work hours, it’s impossible to spend quality time with our partners during weekdays, right? Fortunately, you can always bond with your partner over the weekends. No, dressing up and heading to the same Sushi place every Saturday night does not count. If you’re looking for things to do with your partner, allow us to inspire you with our list of top bonding activities:
Hit The Gym Together
It’s true what they say about couples who sweat together, stay together! During workouts, your body releases endorphins and dopamines and makes you feel happy, and working out with your partner enables you to bond with them in this happy state of mind. If you aren’t fond of hitting the gym, opt for fun and interesting activities like indoor rock climbing, Zumba etc, basically anything to get the two of you hot and sweaty!
Stay In Bed & Talk
Weekends are for lazying around in bed, especially mornings! Ensure to not spend your time in bed checking social media, instead work on connecting with your partner. Spend time talking and cuddling with each other.
Go On A Long Drive
Sometimes the best way to catch up with your boyfriend might be by going for a long uninterrupted drive. Hop into the car with no specific destination in mind, pick up some snacks for the road, and drive around aimlessly!
Take A Bubble Bath Together
Is there anything more romantic than long bubble baths with your partner? We don’t think so! Draw up a warm bath, light some exotic scented candles, pour in essential oils, and keep a bottle of chilled champagne handy.
Cook Your Favourite Meal
Ordering in your favourite deep-crusted pizza might be more convenient, but what’s the fun in that? A lot has been said about how cooking can be a great bonding activity, so why not try that this weekend instead? Look up an easy recipe together and make at least one elaborate meal together. Oh also, we totally recommend food fights!
Whether it’s hanging up a painting or finally putting that IKEA bar together, you’ll find doing tasks with your partner to be a great way of getting close to them. Also, this “date” can be a great excuse in tricking your SO to help you with something you’ve been meaning to do forever!
Get Ice Cream
If the two of you are going to be working through the weekend, there’s no reason why you can’t squeeze in a quick ice cream date in the evening. Walk to the place if it’s close by, try different flavours, and talk to each other about your day, and work.
Apart from these above pointers, remember to not be on your phone all the time in order to actually connect with your partner. A few hours away from technology will not only help you recharge, but also allow you to reconnect with your better half.
