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!

3 Ways To A Healthy Relationship

3 Ways To A Healthy Relationship

It can be difficult to make the right connections with the right people, and then assuming that you do manage to find a spark with a special someone, you then have the challenge of building a relationship with them. This should be fun and enjoyable, but we know that it can also have its rocky moments. Which is why today we want to share with you 3 ways to a healthy relationship.

Communication

You need to be open and honest with your partner and communicate effectively with them. If you are struggling with anything, you should be able to talk to them and trust in them to support you. You should be able to talk over the woes of your day freely with them and laugh together. 

Some people are more chatty and communicative than others, but this need not be a barrier unless you make it one. If your partner is quiet, accept that about them, learn to read their moods and you will soon know whether you need to chat anything through with them. 

If there are issues within your relationship you need to sit down and talk them through. Things rarely get better just by waiting them out, and neither of you are mind-readers so you do need to lay it out on the table so that you can move forward. 

Shared interests

It is helpful to have shared interests, as you will then always have things to talk about, connect over and enjoy together. Perhaps you both love a certain sport, going to the movies, have the same group of friends or share a love of travel. Or perhaps it is more about your nature, and you have the same sense of humour, similar belief systems or attitudes to others and the world around you. These are the things that will both attract you and hold you together.

This is not to say that you need to be in one another’s pockets. It is also important to have your own separate social lives, as you want to come to each other as complete and happy individuals, not be reliant on each other to fulfil all of your needs. 

Sex and trust

You do need to agree your emotional and sexual boundaries within any new relationship. Is this to be monotonous or are you open to seeing other people? Agree this early on to avoid any pain or confusion further down the line. 

You then need to take your own sexual needs seriously and ensure that you are taking care of yourself and your body, so that you are leading a sexually healthy lifestyle. You need to be able to speak up for what you want, what you don’t want and what is important to you physically and emotionally. In doing so, you need to feel able to trust in your partner. 

If this is an area that you are struggling with, it can be worth trying Sex Therapy & Counselling and try to avoid seeing this as a last ditch solution. This is something worth addressing sooner rather than later and can help to make a young relationship flourish or reignite long term relationships.
