When thinking of things to do with your boyfriend, try to include several activities that you know hell really enjoy. Theres often a tendency to pick things we like, and just assume our boyfriends will like them, too. But of all the things to do with your boyfriend, at least half should be aimed at his interests.
Try to keep a pretty even balance about the things you do together. If he takes you to see the latest romance, especially if you know he hates those types of movies, dont groan or complain when he wants to see the new action movie that you really dont want to see. The things to do with your boyfriend should include things he loves, too.
A good relationship has a lot to do with balance. You share things like chores, coming up with ideas for things to do, surprising each other and being kind. Choosing things to do that hell enjoy shouldnt be hard if you know him well.
If he hasnt been your boyfriend very long, then simply as him the types of things he likes to do the most. Hell probably mention some things you would have never thought of on your own.
There are many things to do with your boyfriend that you can both enjoy. If he likes to swim in the ocean and youre not wild about it, make a nice picnic lunch with some of your favorite foods, and take hi to the beach. He can swim while you read novel, sunbathe or play volleyball.
Does he love golf, but youre not really interested? Split the difference and play a fun round of mini-golf. He likes Nascar and nothing bores you more than cars circling a track over and over. So make some snacks for you both, and while hes watching the game you can be in the same room reading or working at one of your hobbies.
You dont have to both be doing exactly the same thing to be doing something with your boyfriend. Youll find that very often its best not do to the same things together all the time. You each need a little private space.
There are going to be some things that each of you loves that the other hates. If you like Off-Broadway shows, for example, and he hates them, find a girlfriend or a family member to go to the theater. And he can take one of his buddies to the racetrack when he wants to go.
But if he takes you to a show, you should be willing to go to the track with him. If you can keep an even balance of things with each getting to do something they enjoy with the other and vice versa, youll have a more balanced relationship.
And you may find that the racetrack isnt so bad. He may learn to like theater. If you can compromise, youll never run out of ideas for interesting things to do with your boyfriend.
