How to Bring the Fun Indoors
It’s getting cold and the thought of stepping outdoors is about as appealing as drinking a warm beer. You don’t want your relationship to fall into a standstill as the temperature drops, so you’re desperately seeking a way to keep things fun and alive without leaving the house. Keep calm because there are plenty of things to keep you and your partner occupied this winter.
Here are a few silly, but fun ways to survive this winter and strengthen your relationship:
What’s hotter than jumping in the kitchen together! Learning to cook together can be a fun way to stir things up in your relationship. It doesn’t matter whether either of you are experienced or not, the whole fun is doing something new. You can help each other and bounce recipe ideas off one another. Plus, it’s like playing house for the day. You get a glimpse of how your future together may be. Now when your partner asks you to make a sandwich, you can legitimately tell them to make their own and laugh about it.
Game of L.I.F.E.
Bring out the board games! Now this one literally sounds a bit childish, but I guarantee it’s something you’ve probably never done with your partner. These games bring back a lot of memories and can be a great conversation starter. By throwing back to our own childhood, you can learn more about your partner’s past and hear new stories and facts that they never thought to tell you. Plus, you get a sneak peak at your partner’s goofy, competitive side, and you can tell whether or not your partner could be a good a parent one day.
Once you’ve put away the games, it’s time for serious business in the bedroom. Rather than just mate like animals this winter, challenge yourself to get creative. Buy a sex book or calendar that shows you different positions and try them out. You may find some new favorites, as well as laugh at some nearly impossible ones. The point is that it’s something new and it will had spark to your relationship despite the cold winter nights.
Benefits to staying in
There’s so many pros to staying in besides staying warm. You’d be saving a ton of money by planning these indoor dates, which could later go towards splurging on a dream couples vacation in the summer when you’d actually enjoy a warm breeze. Also, staying in could ensure quality time with your partner that you may not get in public. You could learn new things about each other, which will build a stronger relationship.
So stay indoors when it’s too cold and strengthen your relationship so that it could survive the harshest of conditions. When you’re trying something new and fun, you’ll completely forget about the idea of cabin fever.
