When most people think of Atlanta, they think of a smaller version of New York City or Los Angeles, but in reality Atlanta has its own mystique. It is a great place to get out and mingle. It is also terrific for finding things that you and your significant other can do together. The problem with many couples is that they fall into the same routines – going to work, coming home from work, taking care of children, cooking dinner, cleaning up, going to bed, and doing it all over again the next day. They lose themselves and each other in the process. They no longer look at each other and their relationship with the same “fresh,” loving eyes.
Life starts to revolve about providing – not pleasure – not reconnecting with one another. So, sometimes, couples need a “jump off” like a car, whose battery is dead. That is where these suggestions come in. The purpose of these tips is to help you re-energize your relationship’s dead battery. The goal is to breathe life into you struggling relationship. It is so important that you make time for your loved ones, they need it, but so do you. Don’t lose yourself in the midst of all of the chaos and ruckus; make a way to find each other all over again.
Listed below are simple ways to strengthen your relationship:
Atlanta Movie Tours
Want to add a little pizazz to your relationship? Well, a unique way to spend time with your sweetie, have fun, and reduce the stress in your relationship is to go on an Atlanta Movie Tour. I bet you never thought that this type of activity could improve your relationship, well, it can. How? Well, by helping you and your partner forget all of the issues you have – at least for a little while. It can also help by encouraging you to laugh, relax, and have some fun.
Who doesn’t like to laugh and have a good time? No one! Laughing allows people to relax the walls they have built up over time. It also reminds people why they fell in love with each other in the first place. So, schedule a tour and trace the footsteps of your favorite stars like a crazy fan. Silly – yes, but maybe that is just what you both need to reconnect with one another. And, the best part about these tours – they are usually guided by actors and/or extras from your favorite sports teams, television shows, and movies. So, let your imagination run wild, and afterwards, talk about your experience with each other.
Chastain Park & Delta Classic Chastain Park Amphitheater
One of the most romantic things you can do in Atlanta is spend time at the Chastain Park, located at the center of Atlanta’s largest city park. This park is known for its magnificent outdoor amphitheater, the Delta Classic Chastain Park Amphitheater, which allows concertgoers to BYOB (bring your own booze) and BYOF (bring your own food). You can also take sodas and juices into the gigantic amphitheater. And, even better – some sections even come with table seating arrangements. I know, fancy. People, who have these arrangements, are able to enhance their experiences through fancy tablecloths and sweet-smelling candles. So, what better way to reconnect, and spark those romantic feelings than at this glorious amphitheater? And, even if you don’t have “good seats,” you can always take a blanket, wine, cheese and crackers, sweet treats and relax (and cuddle) on the massive green lawn way in the back.
So, surprise your significant other with tickets to see his or her favorite singer or band, and be prepared to get close to the love of your life! He or she will be surprised, shocked, and appreciative of the effort you put forth to show him or her how much you care. And, if you really aren’t the “concert type,” you can always spend time jogging, strolling through the park, golfing, swimming, riding horses, and/or playing tennis together. It doesn’t matter what you do, just as long as you do it together! Look for common interests and capitalize on them. You have things in common, or you wouldn’t have committed yourself to each other, now, you just have to “remember” them or find new things that connect you.
Starlight Six Drive-In
This fun version of “going to the movies” will not only bring you closer together, it will also give you something “different” to do as a couple, if it is nothing something you regularly do. Take a ride back to the past when drive-ins were all the rage, and experience something “new.” And, if you really want to make this activity magical – bring a small charcoal grill and throw some hamburgers, hotdogs, and chicken wings on it.
And, if that is a little much, pack a simple, healthy snack and sit back and enjoy the show. If neither options sound good, Starlight offers a multitude of snacks, ranging from candy to old-fashioned movie-popped popcorn and sodas. So, set the stage for an epic romance via the drive-in, snuggle up, and watch the movie. I don’t think there is any better way to reconnect and re-spark the love you once shared for one another. P.S. If you really want to spark the flames of love, go to the drive-in when it’s playing a romantic drama. However, if things are a little tense, try a comedy or action flick.
