Things to Do With Your Partner to Reconnect

Why consider things to do with your partner to reconnect?

Every couple needs time to connect. Not only is this good for your engagement and marriage, but it will also increase your own happiness.

There are so many different ways to reconnect with your partner. Plus, you can use these ideas any time of year!

If you are looking for ways to get close to your spouse again, here are ten things you can do with your partner to reconnect, no matter how distant you feel.


10 Things to Do With Your Partner to Reconnect

1. Ask quality questions.

Want to know what is on your significant other’s mind? Crave a good conversation? Then it’s time to start thinking about asking the right questions.

Find some conversation starters to help you give a little push if you need it.

2. Learn something new together.

Take a class or learn something new online together. Bond over a shared experience and find a new way to connect through doing something together.

3. Express gratitude and acknowledgment.

Don’t forget that simple phrases such as “thank you,” “you’re welcome,” and “I appreciate you” go a long way.

Remembering to show your spouse how much they mean to you and you are grateful for them can help you reconnect.

4. Get away every now and then.

Whether you can afford a single-night getaway or a whole weekend trip, try to escape daily life at least once a month.

Try to at least take a day trip to another city and do something fun, even if it won’t cost any money. A long walk on the beach or just a stroll through town can still be a fun date.

5. Give genuine compliments.

Find something to compliment your spouse every day. If you want to make it extra special, turn that compliment into a little love note for them.

6. Check-in with one another.

Make sure that you regularly check in with each other. Ensure there are no lingering issues and that you are both on the same page.

7. Plan engaging date nights.

Movies and plays are great, but they don’t allow you to strike up a conversation. Look for more engaging date nights that give you the opportunity for closeness and quality time.

8. Do a chore for them.

What is the one chore your spouse does that they hate? Whether taking out the trash or doing the laundry, do that chore for them now and then.

9. Reminisce about the past.

Sit back and reminisce about old times. Nothing brings you closer together than remembering fond memories of the day’s past.

10. Share a lingering kiss.

Instead of a quick smooch, linger a bit on your next kiss. This not only gives even a small kiss a little more intimacy but will help you reconnect with your spouse on a physical level.
