Who has ever been in a long term relationship and it hits that lull period? You know what I mean, it’s a lot of:
Her: What’s up?
Him: Not much…
…. Cricket….. Cricket….
And then nothing. It’s frustrating right? Like you’re pulling teeth to get the conversation going again? Men might not see this as a problem, but I know for most women, we want a little more communication in our relationship.
Something I truly appreciate and value about my husband is his intelligence. We’ve been together for nine years, so we’ve been there and had those annoying conversations. I didn’t want us to get stuck in a rut though, and I truly want to make sure I’m always connecting with him and improving our relationship. He loves facts; I’m not kidding when I say he literally knows so many random facts he probably could write a book about them all. Well, I used to take this for granted, I didn’t appreciate how smart he was or all the crazy facts he knew about, and so it didn’t allow us to grow in our relationship because he didn’t know what to share with me.
One day, he decided to share this Science fact with me which turned into an in depth conversation about 3D scanners, printers and then grew into a more developed conversation…. basically it was awesome. I decided that I wanted to continue this intellectual pathway we were headed towards and grow more as a couple.
I give you:
Relationship Facts 🙂
During the weekdays, both of us come up with a random fact that the other may not know. Each day is a new subject and then at the end of the night we share the fact with each other. I find this exciting because it not only allows me to build upon my relationship with my husband in a creative way, but we both get to learn new things we wouldn’t have otherwise learned about.
Monday – History
Tuesday – Pop Culture
Wednesday – Science
Thursday – US History
Friday – English Literature
Just a few of things we are personally interested in, but it’s whatever makes you and your love grow together as a couple. It’s one of the best ideas I’ve come up with and something we both genuinely look forward to! It promotes more conversation, fun, love and happiness in the relationship because you are getting to learn what the other is interested in. I really enjoy being in a loving relationship, and anything to make it stronger and keep it alive is so exciting to me!! Also, I think my husband likes that I don’t make fun of him for knowing random facts anymore haha.
