2. Go on an adventure that’s new to both of you, like exploring a new hobby such as rock climbing or carpentry, visiting an antique store or a quirky museum, playing bingo in the community center (sounds dull, but I think it has a lot of potential to be entertaining in terms of people watching), finding a take-home worthy item from the junk yard and whatever else sounds good!10 Activities that will bring you and your significant other closer together.

My fiancé and I went to Miami, FL’s first Pin-up Convention. We had no idea what to expect. We hoped for the best knowing we might be walking into a tacky burlesque show or a grand slam of retro fun.  Thankfully, it was the latter.  We meandered through shiny antique cars, tables of one of a kind trinkets, pin-up models, live good music and more. It was a successful endeavor.

3. Play a prank on someone together.  All the sketchy scheming and funny outcomes manifests in teamwork, collaboration and bonding.

4. Pick a project to work on together, and do it! You can build a night stand or home-made bar. Try writing a song or screenplay together, cook an awesome meal. Challenge and reward yourselves.  Additionally, the nice thing about this activity is that it can take a lot of time to complete, ensuring that you guys will spend one on one more regularly.10 Activities that can bring you and your other half closer together

6. Play Truth or Dare!

7. Take each other to a place the other has never been. It’s best if the location is out of your comfort zones. Like taking he/she to a poetry reading, a snorkeling trip, a gun range, where you volunteer, a weird place you used to hang out when you were a teenager, where you learned to ride a bike or drive a car.  Anything goes.  Learn about each other.

10. Make a pact to shut off your phones and televisions all day, then follow through.  Imagine all the stuff you both will come up with to entertain yourselves.  Automatically, you will depend on each other for company and ideas to spend the day.
