What do you do?

What do you do with your SO? Not things like mindlessly watching t.v. I mean things that you do to spend time, hang out, and talk. Bonding time basically. I feel like we're losing/have lost that ability and want some ideas.

  • We read books together. We go canoeing, fishing, camping, and hiking. Sometimes we will just sit together and talk or tease each other. If we get mad at each other, we ask for a "do over." Then we start from scratch to make it better. Sometimes we just leave little notes around the house for the other to find. It really helps to keep our love alive.

  • we like taking drives... playing together with the babies at the park.. cuddling up to a movie and talking the whole time instead of really paying attention to the movie sometimes:-)

  • When its affordable, we love going to the movies and out to dinner or lunch. We also like taking brisk walks when the weather is nice, shopping together, going on trips and long car rides to places we've never been and playing recreational sports.

  • And I must say what has bonded us the most I think is having kids. Dh loves the sight of me when I'm pregnant and we love seeing a baby grow and all its milestones and knowing we together created that life.

  • Mid-week date. Have the kids go to school as usual and we both take the day off and go to breakfast and a movie. By the time school is out we have spent a few hours together. We probably do this 2-4 times a year and they are our special days. This is easier for us than trying to do evening dates where we would have to arrange child care.

    We also cook dinner and clean the kitchen together that is really when we have most of our regular conversations. Walk the dogs or work together on a house project.

  • Well for starters I always ask him how his day was, and he inreturn asks me. We always eat dinner together. Sundays are always family days and we take our dag to the water, and either go out to dinner or lunch with our son. We talk a lot and about everything. Sounds silly, but we do and that works for us. Good luck!!!

  • We eat dinner together and talk about our day. Even if it's just Ramen or sandwiches because we're lazy, we sit down together to eat, and we talk.

    We go on dates, too. Bowling, cheap movies at the dollar theater, things like that. And we make time to spend a few minutes together during the day too - little things like walking the dog together, riding to the store together (even if we're just getting 1 thing and one of us could get it alone)...

  • We play music together, sometimes get a fire going and just sit around it talking. We do our date nights (about once a week); dinner, going to see live bands, etc. We also take 2 vacations a year just for us, no kids.
