Prioritising fun and laughter with your partner can help to create romance and a sense of playfulness in your relationship. Research has shown that couples who are able to laugh together are more likely to have a happy, long lasting relationship, as laughter helps to strengthen bonds, and deepen intimacy and attraction.
Here we explore some ways to prioritise laughter and fun in your relationship.
Go on a date - We often get caught up in the rush and routine of every day life, and can sometimes forget to prioritise quality, one-on-one time with our love. Whether it's a dinner date, bowling, a movie night or something totally different, going on a date is a great way to have fun and be present with your partner.
Surprise them - One way to show your partner that you are thinking of them is to surprise them. There are lots of ways to do this and it doesn't always have to be a grand gesture. Something as simple as surprising your partner with a coffee in the morning or cooking their favourite meal after a long week can really make your partner feel loved, appreciated and happy.
Try something new together - Trying something new as a couple is fun and exciting and can help bring you closer together. Maybe you could attend a pasta making class, go wine tasting, or just try out a new restaurant. Think of something you're interested in and could enjoy experiencing together.
Get outdoors - Go for a bush walk, to the beach, or even camping and spend some quality time together in nature.
Unleash your inner child - Think theme parks with rides and food stalls, going to a magic or comedy show, playing a game of laser tag or bowling, or going to an escape room. What better way to encourage fun and laughter with the person you love!
Keep it simple - When trying to bring some fun into your relationship, you don't always need to think outside the box. Sometimes all it takes is ordering in your favourite food, curling up on the couch and watching a movie or TV show together.
We hope you try some of these ideas with your love.
