Right now I am trapped in my house. Yes, I am literally stuck. You see, I live in Georgia and about once a year a little snow falls. Last night we got about three inches and today it froze good and hard. The only driveway I have to the highway is about a quarter of a mile long and thick ice uphill. I’m stuck! So I started thinking about romantic things a couple could do when you have limited resources or are “stuck” somewhere. This doesn’t have to be just during a snow storm. You can use these ideas anytime you are stuck or want to be stuck somewhere alone with your lover.
As adults, we rarely have time to do the fun things we used to do when we were kids. Board games or cards are a fun way to spend time alone with your lover if you are stuck in the house. As adults, you can even put a little spin on the game by offering bets to your partner. These adult bets could make the game that much more interesting.
I’m a pretty busy person, so most of the time I have to eat on the run. If you are going to be alone with your lover, why not prepare an elaborate meal together? Now, I don’t mean the guy who sits and watches football while the woman cooks like Gordon Ramsey. Make this a partnership project that you do together. The end result will be a great meal and lots of fun preparing it together.
Take an afternoon and do a movie marathon. Choose three of your favorite movies. Make sure both of you agree that these are really favorites for both of you, otherwise one of the partners will quickly get bored. Make a large bowl of popcorn and sit back and enjoy movies and each other’s company like you used to when you first met.
Taking advantage of the moments when you are trapped will go a long way toward growing your relationship to new levels. Having these times is a huge change from the daily routine that our lives so often turn into. Have fun with this and enjoy the activities that I have listed above. If you can think of other ideas, use them too, as long as both people enjoy them.
