There are several reasons why it is important to bond with your boyfriend, and there are a number of ways to do it. Having a good bond with your partner ensures that your relationship is secure and makes it easier to be more free and more open.
Solve a Crime Together
A great way to strengthen your bond with your partner is to do something together that takes teamwork. Solving a mystery takes teamwork, so try playing a mystery board game or visiting an escape room. There are even subscription boxes that send you a new mystery to solve every month, so you could make it a regular date night.
Learn Something New
Learning a new skill can be fun, and you’ll also learn a new skill. You could take a class to learn how to give excellent massages, and then practice on your boyfriend (and vice versa.) Or take a cooking class and learn to cook your boyfriend’s favorite meal.
Rekindle the Flame
Sometimes when you are in a relationship for a long time, you can get somewhat used to each other, and the spark can die a little. To keep that spark alive, you can relive your very first date. Try to make it as authentic as possible. Even wear the same clothes if possible and for a fun nostalgic touch. Another way to keep your relationship alive and thriving is to date regularly.
Spread the Love
If you and your boyfriend are animal lovers, you may want to consider adopting one together. Or, if you are not quite ready to commit to adoption just yet, spend some time at your local animal shelter and volunteer your time for a really good cause.
Take a Hike
Get outside and get some fresh air. Pack a picnic and plan a fun hike to a hidden hot spring or to a scenic waterfall. Don’t forget to pack your camera and take plenty of pictures to remember your fun adventure. Not sure where to go? There are plenty of apps that tell you where all the hiking trails are.
If you are an outdoorsy couple, visit a national park and spend a night or two camping. Just be sure to plan ahead so that you know what the fees are, and be sure to pack everything you need, such as bug spray and sunscreen. You want to also get familiar with what is nearby so you can plan to see all the attractions. If you are camping near a lake, you may want to bring swimming gear or a boat so that you can make the most of your trip. You may even want to get a fishing license and do some fishing.
Plan to Not Plan Anything
Sometimes it is fun to just unwind and relax at home. Watch your favorite movie, cook, and enjoy a delicious meal together, or just lie in bed all day talking. Just enjoy each other’s company and unplug from the world for a day so that you don’t have any distractions that will come between you and your boyfriend. Simply talking and opening up to each other is a great way to expand your relationship together, and focusing on each other, and each other only is a great way to communicate that you are important to each other without even saying anything.
Try a Game of GEL Blaster
If you are familiar with paintball, you know how fun it can be, but it can also be painful. If you get hit in the wrong spot, you can get a welt that lasts much longer than your game. If you and your boyfriend want to try something new and want to burn some energy, grab a M97 shotgun gel blaster, and have some fun. It is like a water fight with water guns but elevated and painless since the ammo is simply water beads. Whether you are a pro at target games or have never tried it, it is sure to be a fun twist on your more traditional date night that consists of dinner and a movie.
