Routines can be great for school, work or sports, but they should have no place in your relationship. The thing is, it is very easy for your relationship with your boyfriend to slip into a rut, especially when you’ve been dating for a while.
If you feel like the spark in your relationship is fading, or you simply want to cheer up your boyfriend after he’s had a long week at work or school then these are the top 10 things to do for your boyfriend:
1. Surprise him with tickets to a concert
Know what your boyfriend’s favorite band or musician is? If you do, this will be easy. You can check out whether they have any upcoming concerts and score some tickets. There is no way you’re going wrong with this.
2. Give him a relaxing massage
How about you turn your home into a spa by giving him a massage. A massage is very sensual yet relaxing. You can get exciting tips on sensual massage from the internet to make it an unforgettable experience. At the end of it all, he’ll be revitalized and rejuvenated.
3. Cook him a meal
It might sound cliché, but the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. When was the last time you made him his favorite dish at home? You can bet he’d love to sample some of your cooking. You can get recipes of exotic cuisine and whip them up just for him. If you’re going to try something new, make sure to give it a try first before the d-day lest you end up with a disaster in your hands. Alternatively, you can involve him in the whole process and try cook something with him. It will be so much fun.
4. Have a movie marathon
Why not get a bunch of movies you both haven’t watched and have a movie marathon? Make sure to bring snacks. You can also opt to watch each other’s best movies. This way, you will find out a lot about your boyfriend’s taste for movies.
5. Have a video game marathon
Does your boyfriend enjoy video games? Bingo! You might just have the perfect way to spend quality time together. Most guys enjoy playing video games so it will be easy to coax your boyfriend into spending the day with you. You can give everything a shot – from Call of Duty to Dance Revolution. You can rest assured you’ll both have a swell time. And don’t make it too easy for him.
6. Take him out on a surprise date
You’ll definitely need to do some prep work. You can find out what his ideal date would be by slipping questions into regular conversation. For example, you can find out what he’s always wanted to try but hasn’t had a chance to. Surprise him on the day of the date and you’ll surely sweep him off his feet.
7. Buy him a book
Of course you first have to establish whether he loves reading. Shop around for the kind of book he would go for based on his current reading list. You can get him books from the same author or genre.
8. Take silly pictures
Get silly and dress up for a funny shoot together. You can even put make-up on each other – if he’ll agree to it of course. Set your camera’s self-timer and take as many photos as you like. You can also shoot videos of your silly antics and upload them on YouTube. If you need some inspiration, you can find tons of videos online of couples doing silly things together.
9. Make him a collage of your relationship
You can take stuff that holds a special meaning for your relationship and use it to make a collage. For example, you could use pictures, special notes and ticket stubs. Make sure to include some pictures he’s not too proud of. It will surely make him smile. You could include a picture you took on his birthday with cake smudged all over his face.
10. Write him a romantic note
This always works like a charm. Leave a romantic note somewhere he’s likely to see as he goes about his business. Make it cheeky and fun. You could use a pet name he hates and include a corny message.
Whatever you decide to do, make sure you keep it fun and exciting. Hold hands, kiss, hug, tickle him playfully and call each other cute names like honey bun, cutie and sweetie. You can be sure he won’t be forgetting the day for a long time to come. Don’t take it too hard if whatever you try falls flat on its face. Take it as a learning experience and try something else next time.
