Carowinds Amusement Park
If you are “stuck” in the same routines, you may want to “spiff” up your love life with a trip to Carowinds Amusement Park. Why is this so great for struggling couples? Well, because it “loosens” you up and it allows you to relax and just have fun. There is nothing “heavy” about going to an amusement park. In fact, it may just channel your inner silly child. And, really, how bad can that be for you or your partner? It may also help you remember just how much fun you have with one another – when you make time for one another. You will create a trunk full of memories, but don’t forget your camera. Taking pictures of your partner, while on one or two of Carowinds thrilling rollercoasters (i.e. Afterburn, Fury 325, Vortex, and the Carolina Cobra) is sure to elicit laughter or…a little revenge. Just remember to leave all of the “messy stuff” behind and keep it playful. I guarantee that after a day at Carowinds you and you partner will planning your next escapade.
If you and your significant other enjoy sports – or at least you used to, spend an evening at a Charlotte Bobcats/Hornets game. When you think about it, this basketball team is almost like a relationship. How? Well, first it was name the Charlotte Bobcats, then it was renamed the Charlotte Hornets, and in August it was decided that it would once again be named the Charlotte Bobcats. Whoa! Just like a couple who gets together, then separates, only to realize later that they were meant to be together. Cool right? Well, anyways, watching this historic team win a game can spark passion in both you and your partner. It will also allow you to focus on something other than what you don’t have in common. How about enjoying what you do have in common like this basketball game? And, in case you didn’t know, the team is owned by Michael Jordan, so save up and pick up some floor seat tickets for the next Charlotte Bobcats/Hornets game. You won’t regret it, and you and your significant other will have something awesome to gab about once it’s over. Score!

Sometimes couples just need a good, hearty laugh. When love and life become too overwhelming and your stress meter skyrockets – it is time for a chuckle or two or three.
