The couple that sweats together stays together. Isn’t it more inspiring to pave your way into fitness if your other half is there by your side encouraging and pushing you to strive harder? Every weight lost and muscle gained is much sweeter when you do it together. And of course, sweat definitely does not disgust either of you – in fact, you’ve grown to kind of like it.
When working out, you don’t only build stronger muscles – you also build a stronger bond in your relationship. So stop unrolling yoga mattresses, pounding pavements, and hitting health clubs alone!

7). Cook As A Couple

Food tastes best when it’s cooked with love and with the one you love. There’s just something so sentimental about preparing and eating with your perfect match. Eating together has the same effect as cooking together. It’s another way of connecting, being creative and communicating with your partner.
There should not be any pressure or competition when cooking together because the main goal you should have for doing it is to have a good time, learn and make something delicious together. Cooking, in fact, is a simple way to enhance your skills and knowledge individually and at the same time growing as a couple.

8). Bond With Friends

Meeting your lover’s friends can be as nerve-wracking as meeting his/her parents. Becoming friends with them can strengthen your bond and make the times you spend going out way more enjoyable. Showing your effort to become friendly with his/her buddies will also prove how much you care for your partner and these efforts will definitely be appreciated.
Acknowledging how important these people are to your partner means you’ll take the trouble of accommodating them no matter how annoying they may seem for you. They’re a huge part of your lover’s life and along with his/her family. They’re part of the package! You are most likely obligated to spend time with them because of course, you may not want to completely opt out of your partner’s social life right?

9). Go Out On Simple Dates

Dates don’t necessarily have to be majestic or exorbitant regularly. It does not always require you to dig too deep into your wallet for fancy restaurants because hey - it’s not the material things that matter right? What matters most are the euphoric memories that you build in even the simplest things you do together.
The time you spend with him/her weighs more than the money you spend on dates. Try this list of cheap and awesome date ideas to help you!

10). Grow Old Together

In this world full of things that are not meant to last, growing old together is the ultimate relationship goal of all time! Being someone’s first love may be great but being their last is beyond. A perfect relationship is just two imperfect people who refuse to give up on each other from the beginning until the end. A love that lasts a lifetime is no joke. It is built day by day and only becomes richer the longer it lasts.
Just like how a dazzling morning turns into a starry night or a shiny piece of metal that eventually becomes rusty, your youthfulness and beauty will also fade away. The strands of your hair might turn gray but the love that you have for each other should never fade away.
