Find the time to have fun together and enjoy each other
I’ve have dealt with this situation in my own life, in my children’s life, and have presented countless ideas to folks whom come to me for advice on this very subject. There just never seems to be enough time and when there is time you both are exhausted from work or have other obligations and there never seems to be the time to spend real quality time together. The key here is to understand the word “quality”; it generally supersedes quantity of time by a large margin.
Here are some things that might help to find the time to have fun together.
• Make an actual date
o Set a day and make your plans and just go out and have fun; or stay in and have fun. Turn off your phones and let the rest of the world do its thing while you do yours.
• Play hooky
o Use a sick day or a vacation day and spend the entire day together. I don’t suggest you do this often, but once in a while it’s always good to sometimes be bad. You earned your vacation and sick days; why not use them?
o Relationships are a lot of work but if you are committed to this relationship you need to make it a priority in your life. That means sometimes you might have to skip that game of golf with your buddies or skip that shopping trip you planned. It’s important to not assume your mate always understands when you make these other commitments; sometimes making a bit of a sacrifice from doing those other things so you can spend time with your mate can make all the difference in the world.
