There’s no denying that being passionate about something in life is a very attractive trait to other people. Plus, when you involve someone else in your passion, they learn why you’re so passionate about it, and it might even pique their interest in what you love doing.

A new adventure is undoubtedly an excellent way to bond with your significant other. Believe it or not, more couples have taken to going fishing together. It’s a fantastic opportunity to learn skills and enjoy a shared victory with someone you love.

If you’re not entirely convinced that fishing is a passion your partner or spouse would enjoy with you, the following reasons will help change your mind:

It’s Easy to Teach Someone How to Fish

Some people will have you believe that fishing is a pastime that takes a long time to learn. However, the truth is anyone can quickly learn how to fish, and it’s a hobby that is relatively easy to master.

It makes sense to start off with a simple fishing exercise at a dock, for example. If you go to one with a dock light, you won’t have to venture off-shore in a boat to catch some fish as they’ll get attracted to the light and come to you.

It’s a Relaxing Way to Spend Time Together

You will undoubtedly know that fishing is quite a peaceful and relaxing pastime. If you introduce your partner or spouse to fishing, it’s a hobby you can enjoy with them too.

If you happen to pick a fishing spot remote from other anglers, it can be a great way to have deep and meaningful conversations with your significant other without interruptions from other people.

While you’re both waiting for fish to get your bait, you could use the time by enjoying a picnic together if the weather’s great. Your significant other may even find it a very romantic gesture as they can see you’ve put some thought and effort into your trip.

It’s Something Different to Do

The trouble with activities like going to the movies or having a dinner date at an upscale restaurant is they are predictable things to do. When you take your partner or spouse fishing, it’s an activity where you both get to spend time together doing something different.

Your significant other may even find that it’s a pastime they’d like to do with you more often, especially as it involves an element of reward for your efforts (i.e., taking home a large bass to cook at home, for example).

Picnics Aren’t the Only Ideas for Romance

Lastly, if you both catch a fish together, why not celebrate by cooking it over a campfire at your fishing spot? It can be the perfect ending to a day of fun, and it’s another way to turn your adventure into one with a romantic end. There’s nothing quite like enjoying a candlelit and healthy fish filet dinner together as the sun sets over a warm summer’s evening!

Dig That Relationship Out Of A Rut

Dig That Relationship Out Of A Rut

After the initial butterflies and champagne stage of a relationship, romance and love go from a whirlwind pace to a slow, more relaxed pace. No one expects a relationship to stay in the honeymoon phase forever, but if yours has gone from loving and sexy to pensioners at dawn, then there needs to be a change made. Life is far too short to be boring and while the steady, more calm love is deeper and more meaningful, it can feel a whole lot less racy than it used to be. If you feel like you’re getting stuck in a relationship rut with sex-by-numbers every weekend, then it’s up to you to pull yourself out of it and inject a little something else into your regular routines.

Trying to think of the best ways to spice up your routine is just as tiring sometimes, so what you need to do is sit down together and brainstorm how you can get through a rut and come out the other side happier and more in tune than ever. We’ve got some ideas, so why not work your way through the list?

  • Flirt. Flirting isn’t just for teenagers, you know! There’s nothing wrong with a few flirtatious messages sent back and forth while you’re at work, so check out this list of text messages that could get you started!
  • Shower Together. Some couples don’t have the drive or the inclination for sex, especially when small children are in the picture. Not having a regular sex life doesn’t mean you can’t have intimacy and canoodling together in the shower is one of the best ways you can talk, laugh and have fun. If you’re looking to go one better, check out this shaving guide and give the gift of hygiene. There’s nothing stopping you both getting groomed together, either!
  • Say ‘Yes’. If your spouse comes to you with a fun idea, don’t shoot them down. There’s nothing more off-putting than someone who isn’t willing to try out a new restaurant, theatre show or even bedroom Olympics idea. So, put your comfort zone down and say yes for a change. You never know what you could discover!
  • Kiss. It sounds so simple, doesn’t it? But often the first thing to go in a relationship are those sweet kisses you find yourself caught in. Sure, the lusty kisses that lead to steamy romance may have dwindled, but there are so many other types! Off to work kisses, just because kisses, sleepy kisses to say good morning. They’re all there for the taking so don’t miss the opportunity to pucker up.
  • Date. Long term relationships that involve children go so quickly. One minute you’re holding hands in the park after a dinner date and the next it’s been five years and you’re knee-deep in dirty laundry with no time to even brush your hair. Invite him out on a date and spoil him for a change, he will love you taking charge!

Marriage and relationships can get boring, but it doesn’t have to stay that way!

Dress to Impress for Any Date That’s Thrown Your Way

Dress to Impress for Any Date That’s Thrown Your Way

Let’s face it, we all dress to impress. When we go on a first date, we break out the little black dress that’s a tad too little, the expensive jewelry we’ve only worn once in our life, and the sexy black heels that give us painful blisters. We all know what to wear and how to impress our date when he takes us to dinner. But what if he decides to be adventurous and take you somewhere else for your date? Well here are some tips on how to dress to impress in uncharted waters. 

Hiking Up Lover’s Lane

Hiking is a great date idea. It shows that you’re fit, healthy, and smart and lets you get to know each other more intimately. But how do you impress the guy with your fashion as well as your athleticism? You dress sporty, cute, and smart. You don’t want to go out there dressed like Ranger Rick, and you don’t want to be out in your sundress. Instead, opt for something waterproof, cool, and light. Break out the sweats – men dig women in yoga pants and running leggings. Wear something that hugs your curves yet makes you feel comfortable exercising and pair your outfit with either running shoes or cute hiking boots. It’s important to dress accordingly as well as take along a small backpack with necessities. As for hair and makeup, do your hair in a casually sexy ponytail or braid, and go for natural minimalistic make-up. Look like you didn’t try too hard to look that cute.

Shout Your Love from the Top of a Roller Coaster

Amusement parks are a great date idea because you always have something to do and it gets rid of those awkward silences. However, dressing for a theme park date is hard because your outfit must take you from the morning to the night, and through hot temperatures and wet water rides. This is also another date where a dress or skirt simply won’t cut it – unless you plan on flashing everyone on the ride. Your best bet is to go for a casual chic look. Shorts and a tank top, graphic tee, or airy top are perfect for most of the elements you will be going up against at the park. Wear stylish sneakers and avoid anything with any type of heel as you will be doing a lot of walking. Take inspiration from the park and dress to match the theme. When it comes to make-up, be sure to wear SPF moisturizer and a primer because you need your make-up to last all day. Make your eye make-up and mascara as water resistant as possible and wear a lipstick stain to make sure the look lasts all day, especially important on a water ride.

Striking in Love

Most people don’t go bowling anymore. However, it’s not because it’s not fun, but because bowling has turned into an activity geared towards couples. So, what do you wear to bowl a strike in his heart? The key is your top. Wear a nice shirt and bring a stylish jacket if it’s cold outside. You will get hot inside, so make sure you wear something fashionable underneath. It is probably best to wear long pants, because you will be bending down most of the night. But, the most important thing to wear is socks and shoes that are easy to take off. You don’t want those nasty germs on your bare feet, and you also don’t want your date to watch you struggle to take your shoes off. When it comes to jewelry, less is more. Do not wear any rings or bracelets because it will distract your bowling. Instead, wear a simple necklace. When it comes to make-up, you can wear what makes you comfortable but consider the fact that most bowling dates are at night during cosmic bowling hours, so don’t wear anything that will look weird under a black light.
