Sure, you’re tired after a long day of work and all your responsibilities, but why not put some effort into making your relationship better by having new experiences.
14. Dream Together
Never, ever stop dreaming together. What are your goals, plans, and visions for the future? Take time to talk about all the things you want to accomplish in one year, five, ten, and twenty.
Get a pen and paper and make a bucket list of things you want to do solo in your career and together with your partner. Dreaming together is one reason you fell in love, and it can be the thing that helps you reenergize your relationship.
15. Write Love Letters
Do you still write love letters, give cards, or put sticky notes on the bathroom mirror with lovely messages? This is one of those little things that you can do that has such a huge impact. You’re telling this person that they’re on your mind, and they’re so vital to you that you had to say it.
The key is not to overdo it as it can seem forced or not genuine, but an occasional note left on the bathroom mirror can do wonders for a boring relationship phase.
Final Thoughts on Reversing a Boring Relationship
Before you head to a counselor and try to fix what appears wrong in your relationship, you need to realize that all unions go through dry spells. It’s completely normal to feel like you’re in a rut and need to reenergize things. The key is that you fix things, or you may be one of the many couples that don’t make it for the long haul.
Additionally, sometimes things are beyond repair, and it’s not worth putting the time or effort into fixing it. In these instances, you need to learn when it’s time to let go for the sake of your sanity.
Thankfully, most people find that dry spells are part of the ups and downs of being together. When you’re in these periods, you must tell yourself that things will get better and then take steps to make it happen.
