How NOT To Be A Boring Partner
There comes a time in your relationship when you look at your partner’s texts and you’re like, “bleh”. No, it doesn’t mean you have fallen out of love with the person. Nor does it mean you are cheating. Nope, you’re at the “we need to spice things up or die bored” stage. Oh, the honeymoon doesn’t last forever, sorry. You are in love, yes, but you are kinda, sorta bored. Oops, you admitted it. Yes, you want to know how not to be a boring partner.
Say The Truth, Let The Devil Be Shy
It is safe to admit it when you are feeling the blues. If you don’t, it drags on and on and on, and eventually, it becomes something bigger than you can handle. And you get irritated and mad and angry and jealous and assume stuff and jump into conclusions. Horrible, right? No one wants to fall out of love after a month of being together unless it was a contractual arrangement or you are a regular heartbreaker. Not cool at all.
You’re Thinking Of What To Do, Ain’t You?
So, how do you snap out of the boring stage or avoid it altogether? Well, it takes commitment, singlemindedness, two bars of chocolates, a music box, and lots of vocal training. Haha, just kidding. You do not need vocal training. You may need the music box, though. And you need to commit to my list of ‘anti-boring partner’ tips and ‘the superhot, most interesting partner in the world’ code. Let’s go!
Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone
In other words, do not be scared to do something you haven’t done before. Do not be scared to try new clothes, ideas, restaurants, meet new people. Try it together, or do it solo. But, do not take a huge leap out of your comfort zone, you may have a very nasty landing. Take it gradually, breathing deeply between each step. You’ll see that your partner will notice and will encourage you. Of course, y’all should talk about it first, especially if you are married to or dating them alpha types.
Try To Change Your Daily Routine
Change the timetable, please! This is a mostly solo effort unless y’all are living together. Eating the same dishes, doing the same things like clockwork every day, gets old very quickly. Instead of doing laundry on Saturday morning, have a little extracurricular activity, hehe. Do workouts in the evenings, instead of playing videogames. Switch things up for real. Remember, the individual gets bored first before the couple does.
Recreate Your First Date
This is guaranteed to cause a few sappy, weepy, mushy moments. Or a lot, if either of you wears their heart on their sleeves. And, you’ll have a wonderful time rehashing all the events that led up to that first date, the events that followed after. There is a possibility of a do-over too, you know…
Change Up Your Date Night
Instead of the same old restaurant, or night club or cinema, try something else. Going to the same places every time for every date night is guaranteed to cause more than a few yawns before you even begin. That screams “boring partner” with five thousand exclamation points attached to it. Try something like this, instead of planning date night together, make it a surprise. Change it up, if you get to plan this night, let your partner plan the next night. It gives you something to look forward to. And it is fun trying to get your partner to spill the details, ooooouu.
Get Adrenaline Flowing
Yup. And this does not mean activities behind closed doors. Fight the temptation. Do something that is guaranteed to leave you panting, sweaty and laughing like crazy afterward. And that something has to cause the ‘wow-i-just-survived-this-with-you’ feeling. Try riding bikes at night and have a couple of your friends chase you (plan it with discretion; he/she does not need to know who the pursuers are). Jump from the top of a waterfall together. Have a bike race against fellow bikers. Enter a car race, even if you lose, hehe.
Try Out Your Partner’s Hobbies
Even if you have no idea why they’d consider their hobby a hobby. Try it. You may fall in love too and add it to your list of hobbies. And it will be worth the smiles and kisses and hugs you’ll get for simply trying to do something they love. It won’t matter if you suck at it, lol.
Do Surprise Stuff For Each Other
Be spontaneous, in other words! Be thoughtful. Think out of the box. Do something your partner isn’t expecting. Something good, please. Surprise your partner with lunch at work, an impromptu night out, a massage, a spa treatment. Get them new underwear in your favorite color, model lingerie for him ladies! If your partner has a serious sweet tooth, indulge them when they least expect it. P.S. Chocolate cake is a winner, every time.
Ask Questions That Are Interesting And Engaging
Do not be an airhead. Conversations shouldn’t be limited to who’s trending on the gram or the next item on your to-buy list. No, no, no. Talk politics, music, food, compare famous people and their habits. Engage in a friendly rivalry for your favorite sports teams. Start a debate for the fun of it, but don’t be a sore loser. There are several question ideas online too that are guaranteed to start engaging conversations. In simple English, pick each other’s brains.
Dish Out The Compliments
There is no line in the ‘super hot, most interesting partner in the world’ code that says compliments stop after you’re finally together. No sir! Dish out the compliments. Compliment his butt in jeans, his legs, all the things you like about him, how he looks in a suit. Compliment her new hairstyle, her smile, and everything else. Don’t be a boring partner. Make your partner feel like they are on top of the world. And be sincere, they’ll know if you mean it or not.
Be Naughty Via Text
This is a personal favorite. What follows afterward cannot be explained in words, hahaha. Forgive me. Cause your partner to stutter at work or wherever they are with naughty texts and racy pictures. Trust me, you’ll earn so many points, you’ll be cashing out for days. Leave them hot and bothered with X rated voice notes; you’ll thank me for this later. Just be naughty, especially when they are not expecting it. But be extra careful when sending the texts!
Boring partners do not have to be alpha types before they hold hands. Nope. Hold hands whenever you can even if you’re walking to the market together or eating dinner. It is a beautiful form of intimacy. Kiss your partner’s palms and knuckles. Give massages after a long week or a particularly tough day at work. Cuddle on the sofa. Your partner shouldn’t request these things from you or else it will feel like a chore soon enough.
Kisses: As Often As You Can
Asides kisses on the forehead and cheeks and temples, please kiss your partner well. Often. Deep, tongue-twisting kisses. Panty shredding, button popping kisses. Kissing releases hormones that increase trust. I bet you didn’t know that. So, kiss your partner as often as you can and as deeply as you can manage, without going to jail for public misdemeanor. Hahaha!
Try New Stuff In The Bedroom
With mutual consent o! Do not break out the sex toys and accessories that follow without a very serious conversation. I do not mean a ten minute, manipulative conversation. The both of you have to mutually agree and be comfortable with whatever you want to try before you start to try. And please do your research properly. Do not rush into new stuff, break it in. Take it slowly. You’re well on your way out of the “boring partner” zone, believe me.
And there you have it! The ‘anti-boring partner’ tips and the ‘superhot, most interesting partner in the world’ code, successfully hacked and delivered for your reading and doing pleasure! Have fun!
