It happens to the best of couples. Things start out fun, fiery, and new—then start to feel like Groundhog’s Day. Whether speaking of your day-to-day schedule, intimate life, or communication, the tips below will help to break your relationship monotony.
Go On An Unexpected Date
No more eating at the same 3 restaurants, or turning to your go-to movie date night. Instead, try something out of the box:
- Take a couple’s cooking class
- Schedule a couple’s massage
- Head to Groupon to find an out-of-the-box date or excursion
- Take a day trip or weekend away
Buy A Book For Inspiration
Books and your favorite search engine can go a long way in breaking relationship monotony. Need some new talking points? Buy a book of conversation starters. Need to spice things up in the bedroom? Buy a book with some inspiring ideas, or head to GQ or Cosmopolitan online for some new positions. Want to improve your communication? Read up on communication styles or NLP to identify the best way to speak to and listen to your partners.
Last but not least, you have to make the time for the one you love. There will, of course, be times when schedules just don’t mesh—but at the end of the day, your number one needs to know they still hold the top spot in your life and in your heart.
