It's common that when a couple's relationship has passed the "honeymoon" phase, some start to drift apart. The jittery feeling of your heart beating rapidly at the sight of your love interest may seem like a distant memory. The cause could be over-familiarity, leading to a lack of excitement, and kind of just settling into a routine, that’s well, all too routine.
A nice change of pace is a couple learning something new – together – essentially tackling a new adventure head-on. Both people can feel more intrigued, and a sense of wonder can develop from a similar interest being shared. Bonding time can escalate as well. Springtime, and the sentiments that go along with it, offer the perfect opportunity to consider such an undertaking – a fun way to celebrate a lasting relationship and improve it further, alongside the onset of a new season. A couple partaking in a new activity can boost self-esteem, and create a sense of accomplishment and pride.
