  • A relationship is about a lot more than the ability to entertain one another.

  • if boredom is your only complaint
    make it less boring, make your self exciting, be more interesting
    waiting for someone else to make less boring is not the answer
    leaving? seems pretty extreme if boredom is the only problem

  • If you are basing a commitment on the excitement portrayed by Hollywood movies, then you are ALWAYS going to be bored and dissatisfied in your relationships. You will have partner after partner because it's impossible for someone to be "exciting" 100% of the time. All relationships go thru ups and downs. If you are committed, then see what's in your power to cause a little excitement, as PP suggested. Otherwise, look to see if you are expecting too much. Relationships take "work", they can feel like a "job" at times, but if you invest in it, you'll reap the rewards in the days to come. I would talk to him, but I doubt that I'd leave over being bored. BTW, most "stable" relationships can seem boring.

  • Are you married? If not maybe take a break from each other to see what you really want.

  • It depends. Why are you bored? Do you want to be with him? Go on date nights, spice up your sex life, get involved in an activity together (bowling, etc.) Talk to him about how you're feeling, he may be feeling the same way.

  • Talk to him about wanting to do a movie and something simple. Tell him how you are feeling. Also, remind yourself what you two did when you first got together and start doing some of those things again. Think about what things brought you together in the first place. GL

  • Well I guess it depends on why you're bored. Are you bored because it's a low in your relastionship or because he's not exciting enough for you? I think you should talk to him, if he wants to make your relationship more exciting then there are lots of ways to do that. BUT if your personalities are not compatible and he's more of a low-key type of person then you might want to peacefully agree that you're just different and move on. I think everyone hits boring points in their relationship at one point or another. Good Luck!
