Go on dates, do fun activities you used to do when you weren't in a routine, be spontaneous and enjoy your time together.

Try doing small cool things together.
We got a certificate for a chocolate making workshop over the holidays, can't wait to give that a shot.

Get outside more! I'm in Toronto and it's pretty chilly out but still skating or other winter activities are fun to do. Just make sure to bundle up!

To re-infuse some romance, try a bath for two (just make sure you have some air flow in the room so you're not suffocating from the steam)

Whatever you do, just don't freak out and start blaming each other...and you'll make it!

Had the same problem with my last boyfriend... on Jan 04, 2013 @ 04:23 pm

We fell into this rut of doing the same few activities every time we wanted to 'go out' and it got extremely boring. We spiced things up with fun day trips to museums (even if they're dorky things like the train museum, you'll make your own fun while there!), or we'd go out of the city or country for sports events or to see bands. Being spontaneous is also a huge way to get the spark back...so the next time you find yourself falling back into your routine habit, step outside your comfort zone and book hotel a few cities over for the night and just go and see what happens! If you're tight on cash finding little parks/monuments in your home town are also a great and cheap way to be spontaneous locally, and you'll learn so much about your city (a lot of museums etc have free admission on certain days/hours, so do a little research online).

And always, meeting new people together is a great way to try new things because you get introduced to new lives, and you can make some great friends doing it. Try going to a trivia night at a pub, or find a local card tournament and sign up!

Hope that helps :)

Think outside the box. on Jan 14, 2013 @ 05:44 pm

Try thinking outside the box. Yes, going on dates would be fun! But - maybe add a little more adventure to them. Instead of dinner and a movie, go have a drink & play lazer tag. Make it a little competitive between you guys, and it will totally help to get that spark to back!

Big help! on Jan 21, 2013 @ 11:05 am

Love some of these ideas. My bf and i have sunk into this dreaded rut also and i think drinks and laser tag would be AWESOME!!! Really sick of the same restaurants and hang outs.
We also thought about taking a class together to learn something neither of us had done before.
