When you are in a relationship, there are moments that are dull and unexciting. The sad thing is that these moments can seem to drag on forever. However, the last thing we should do is get comfortable with a boring set up in a relationship.
Thinking about fun things you can both do when you’re bored is definitely a step in the right direction. The good news is that you don’t have to look far to find new, interesting and fun things to do together.
Let’s take a look at 20 fun things that can help you break out of your boring routine as a couple.
20. Cook together
So maybe you’re not a great cook and you literally burn every dish you touch, but that doesn’t really matter when you’re trying to inject some fun into your relationship.
Get in the kitchen, roll up your sleeves, and make a mess if you have to. What really matters is that you both have fun making a mess together.
So, whether you end up making something completely inedible or cooking up something delicious, the most important thing is that you’ll still have a great time together.
19. Go dancing
It’s never too late to learn a thing or two about the tango. Having two left feet is not a good excuse to miss out on this great opportunity to break out of your boring schedule.
It’s pretty romantic to dress up and go dancing. It’s one of those things that will leave your relationship feeling as fresh as ever!
18. Decorate your apartment
Instead of hiring the services of an interior designer to spruce up your place, why not try doing it yourselves? A DIY project of this magnitude is enough to keep you occupied for weeks.
As you pick out paint colors, furniture and so on, you’ll find that you discover a lot more about each other. Who knows, you might just fall in love all over again!
The best thing of all is that your haven will reflect both of your personalities at the end of it all.
17. Get Healthy
It can be pretty lonely to try out a diet alone. So why not do it together? Choose a diet that’s the right fit for the both of you and make it a challenge to stick to it.
If you’re bored and have nothing to do, go for a short run together or just go and sweat it out in the gym.
As work out buddies, you’ll both have an easier time at the gym.
16. Make sweet music together
Even if you don’t have a musical bone in your body, it doesn’t hurt to belt out a few notes of your favorite songs when you’re bored.
Set up a karaoke bar in your house and have fun singing off key.
If you’d like to learn more about music, you can always take up a music class. Who knows? You might both pick up a thing or two and discover a newfound love for music.
If you both have a knack for taking pictures and you have undeniable talent, amateur photography is definitely the way to go.
Have fun taking pictures of the scenery around you. Document your special times together, with friends and family.
No matter how good you both are, you could always brush up on your skills by signing up for a photography class together.
14. Watch old movies
Do you remember the first romantic movie you ever watched? Why don’t you take a trip down memory lane by watching the same movie all over again?
It will make you reminisce on your past together. No matter how many times you watch them, old movies never get old.
True, you might already know every line in the movie by now, but nothing beats sitting next to her or him in a dimly lit room, eating popcorn and reciting the movie’s lines together, right?
13. Do a race
If you both love running, sign up for the next marathon and start training for it together. In fact, these training sessions could also serve as your dates.

12. Discover a Sport
There are some sports you may both scoff at, but the truth is that they can be really fun when you’re doing it together.

All you really need to have is the desire to learn the sport. Take classes together to learn it and start playing it.

Let yourselves be wild and free. Have a drink or two and party the night away. But please remember to take a cab at the end of the night.
8. Reenact a First Meeting
Pretend you’re meeting for the first time. Pretend not to know each other.
Take a seat at the bar and let him approach you and offer to buy you a drink. Stir up a conversation and ‘introduce’ yourselves in the process.
