What would be “having fun with your sweetheart”?
Life often orbits:
- Paying bills;
- Cleaning house;
- Helping with homework.
- “Serious Stuff”.
Weekends get filled with servicing the car, going to church, grocery shopping and other “Serious Stuff”.
Come Sunday night we fall into bed and ask our sweetheart, “Wasn’t that fun?”
For the health of your romantic relationship it’s time to have some fun. Time to alter schedules, modify routines and do something atypical.
Mention this idea and people point out two obstacles impeding this “fun” idea – the walls of:
- Absence of Ideas, and
- Limitation of Finances.
Here’s the wrecking ball to break through these barriers and have fun with your sweetheart.
Absence of Ideas: Search “what does it mean to do something fun”.
The first result provided suggestions of “53 fun things you can do this weekend”:
- Make a pizza or bread together;
- Buy a fish, bird or hamster;
- Blow bubbles.
This site comes from the U.K. and the ideas are universal. Need some inspiration, go to: www.lifehack.org/articles/lifestyle/53-fun-things-you-can-this-weekend.html.
Limitation of Finances: To eliminate this barrier, Trent Hamm’s website, TheSimpleDollar.com was brilliant.
According to Trent, it started when he and his sweetheart began “money-free weekends”. They decided fasting from spending extra money didn’t mean they couldn’t do fun things together. The first 15 ideas led to another 15, and soon people started sharing their ideas – ideas like:
- Have a cupboard potluck;
- Practice Origami;
- Take a nap;
- Go coupon scavenging.
His list of fun things to do without spending money now surpasses 100. Check out www.thesimpledollar.com/100-things-to-do-during-a-money-free-weekend/.
The obstacles have been breached and now it’s time to have fun with your sweetheart. I encourage you to seriously and deliberately plan something fun you and your sweetheart can do this week.
What’s great about having fun? It’s a relationship builder and can be or become very romantic. Have fun building your romance. Robert.
