Many women aspire to be in a healthy, long-term relationship—no more slew of bad dates, ghosting, commitment issues, and those almost-but-not-quite situations. It’s just you and your boyfriend, growing and learning together, and getting to know each other along the way. But there is one thing that’s often overlooked in a long-term relationship, and that’s what romance novels and films call "the spark."
As a relationship matures, the spark often begins to flicker and fade, and this happens when the excitement and novelty start to wane. You're running out of ideas on what else to try, but you and your jowa love each other just way too much to let things become boring. But you know we've got you covered! Here are a few cool date ideas you can do with your BF this year to keep that spark ~*alive*~.
1. Find your way out of an escape room.
Your relationship is a riveting success because you're both experts at communicating with each other. What better way to put that to the test than attempting to break out of an escape room? Huge plus if you’re both true crime/murder mystery fanatics!
2. Get together for some friendly competition.
You’re always on the same side when it comes to party games, but maybe it's time to compete against each other just for the sake of friendly competition. As a long-term couple, you've already achieved mutual respect and find that you boost each other's confidence. Take it to the next level by going against one another in a game of kart racing or bowling and unleash your competitive sides.
3. Participate in a class together.
While you’re perfectly able to attend a class by yourself, experiences are much better shared, especially with your boyfriend. You can go for something that will help both of you enhance a particular professional skill, or you can always go for something fun like ballroom dancing just for the heck of it.
4. Have fun at an indoor playground.
Many things in your life will remind you that you’re not as young as you used to be. But instead of heading to a spa like your tita, why not try visiting an indoor playground instead? Have an amazing date jumping on trampolines, diving into ball pits, or scaling rock-climbing walls like a couple of teenagers-at-heart.
5. Recreate your first date.
Some memories are too good to only experience once, just like your first date. How much of it do you even still remember by now? Try to recreate the experience by going to the same restaurant, wearing the same outfit, and ordering the same food. It's a good date idea to try if only to be more appreciative of the time you've spent together.
6. Stay at home for a semi-competitive cook-off.
If you've been together for years, you probably know what each other's cooking tastes like. But instead of cooking together, why not settle the question of who's the better cook? Challenge each other to see who can make the better dish using the same star ingredient, something that's not only delicious but flexible in terms of the cooking possibilities, like San Marino Chili Corned Tuna. San Marino Chili Corned Tuna is a tasty item on its own, but its yummy flavor also complements a wide variety of dishes, giving you room to experiment with different recipes. The healthy helping of spice offers a pleasurable kick that perks up the palate, and each tin contains less oil in favor of tuna so you get a good deal of meat in one can.
