It’s been a challenging year for everyone, couples included. Whether you’ve been isolating with your partner or you’ve been managing a long-distance relationship, many of the socially distanced activities we’re used to doing have lost their appeal.
While many light forms of entertainment have saved us from absolute boredom, there’s only so much Netflix you can watch or laps of the local park you can do before it all becomes a bit boring.
As national lockdowns finally ease, everyone has the chance to do something a bit more stimulating for a change. For people in relationships, undertaking some exciting and adventurous activities can reignite your spark and help you reconnect with each other in a unique way that wasn’t previously possible. So what’s out there for adventurous couples?
The Best Adventurous Activities for People in Relationships
Adventurous activities are great for open-minded couples who have varied interests. You don’t have to be an expert in anything specific to take pleasure in doing something fresh and exciting, so book something stimulating with your partner and enjoy doing something new:
- Luxuriate with a Couples Massage
There’s no better way to properly unwind than with a massage. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we interact with each other, so scheduling some quality time to relax with a couples massage is the perfect way to reconnect and revitalise your relationship. You’ll be able to let your worries drift away as you indulge your senses and awaken dormant feelings of attraction towards one another, helping you establish your physical, emotional and spiritual connection that makes your relationship special.
- Visit a Theme Park
Roller coasters can be fun, exhilarating and terrifying all at the same time, making theme parks the perfect place for thrill-seekers. It’s also a great place for couples who want to get outside of their comfort zone and try something exhilarating, safe in the knowledge that their partners will be with them every step of the way. There’s always a few safer options too, if you just want to enjoy a fun day out with the person you care about the most.
- Have a Night on The Town
Enjoying a nice meal and a refreshing beverage (or two) at a local pub, bar and restaurant will help you get back out into the world. If you have anxieties about socialising with real-life humans again, head out earlier than you usually would to avoid the hustle and bustle and pick a nice, quiet venue where you can relax and enjoy each others’ company in peace. If you’re more than ready to start socialising again, you can always try a double date and share a meal at the top restaurants Lynchburg have on offer with another couple you’ve missed seeing throughout lockdown.
- Go to a Sports Game
You don’t have to be an avid sports fan to relish in the energy that crowds of passionate spectators bring to all kinds of high-level sporting events. You’ll both be swept up in the emotion of any football, rugby, tennis and cricket match, supporting your team and watching incredible athletes at the top of their game. Even if you don’t know the rules, there’s great fun to be had cheering on your team, celebrating wins and commiserating losses with your partner.
- Take an Exciting Class Together
From cocktail making to rock climbing, booking a class in something that neither of you is an expert in will bring you closer together as you help each other learn a new skill. You might even discover that one of you has a natural aptitude for making daiquiris or conquering complicated climbs, or you might well find that you’re equally terrible at your chosen activity. In any case, it’s all about enjoying the time you have together.
How to Pick the Perfect Couples Activity
Some adventurous activities will be more appealing to one person in the relationship than the other, which is why booking something you’re both comfortable doing will make your experience all the more enjoyable. If you’re still unsure about being around crowds of people, express it to your partner and perhaps pick something more relaxing like a couples massage or a private class just for the two of you. Whatever you choose, just remember to have fun and appreciate each other’s company.
