No two people are exactly alike, and one of the reasons that a loving, romantic relationship is so good for our hearts and our minds is that it presents us with exciting new experiences we’ve never tried before. The more lovers have in common, the better their romance can be.
And while the the qualities you share may have attracted you to your romantic partner in the beginning, concentrating on the things you don’t have in common can help build a better, more fulfilling relationship.
What are your lover’s hobbies and interests? Perhaps they enjoy watching a certain sport, or listening to a certain kind of music, or a specific fun activity. I’m sure that one or two of those interests are things that you’ve never given much thought to trying yourself. But taking some time to explore your sweetheart’s interests will do wonders for your romantic relationship, and might even lead to a little fun for you!
Showing interest in your romantic partner’s hobbies when they aren’t expecting it will give them a nice surprise and show them that you want to learn more about the things they enjoy. The easiest way to do it is to just come out and ask your lover to teach you about a particular hobby or interest and let them know you want to share in the fun. Ask your lover to be patient with you as you learn, and make sure to let yourself laugh and have fun when you make the inevitable mistakes.
Or, if you like to surprise your lover, why not learn all about their hobby or interest by yourself and then give them a pleasant shock by showing how much you’ve learned? Your romantic partner is sure to be delighted when you quote some facts about a topic they’re interested in or when you demonstrate your proficiency in an activity they enjoy. Imagine the look on your lover’s face when you tell them you’ve been teaching yourself in private in order to make them happy!
Most importantly, though, learning about your sweetheart’s hobbies and interests will give you even more in common and even more fun, exciting and loving experiences to share together. Broadening our horizons and learning to do new things together are both vital to building better romantic relationships.
Well, have you decided what new hobby your are going to take up yet? Start today and I guarantee you’re romantic relationship will be better for it!
