Do you prefer to pursue your hobbies alone or do you have many leisure activities for two? According to surveys, joint projects are very important to most of you. No wonder, because they make you both a real team. It is especially exciting to try out new activities together, because that brings the initial tingling of the stomach back into the relationship. We have put together a couple of hobbies for couples that you should definitely try out – for two!
1. For the athletes among you
Sport is good for us, we all know that. But sport is also good for our relationship! How convenient that the warm season is approaching and that we can now move our workouts outside. Especially in summer, it makes sense to neglect the equipment in the gym and instead exercise in the fresh air. Sports in which you have to help and encourage each other are particularly suitable for this, for example when climbing or hiking. Or try something completely different, for example windsurfing. If you prefer something a little quieter, take off with the pedal boat and paddle together into the sunset.
2. For film lovers and cineastes
Do you like films? Then make the film a common hobby. For example, you can arrange a fixed day to watch a film together, be it in the cinema or at home. For example, you can discover a new genre together or watch all the films in which your favorite actor played. Also a good idea: finally have a look at all the classics you always hear so much about. Have a look if there is an outdoor cinema in your city in summer, because what is more romantic than lying in your arms under the starry sky and watching a good movie?
3. For gourmets and gourmets
Are you a real foodie and would you like to try various Vietnamese and Moroccan dishes from various international cuisines? Try to conjure up exotic dishes yourself at home. If you prefer to eat outside than cook at home, you can choose fancy restaurants that you don’t know yet. How about, for example, Ethiopian or Ukrainian cuisine? Alternatively, you could enroll in a cooking class!
4. Quiet evenings are boring routine? Are you kidding me? Are you serious when you say that!
How long has it been since you read aloud to someone? If you like reading, try doing it together. So you stay motivated to get a book ready and spend quality time together. This ensures cozy evenings without a bad factor and beautiful memories. At the same time, you broaden your horizons with new knowledge or stimulate your imagination with a good novel. So you can experience something without having to make big plans. An ideal hobby for more comfortable couples.
5. Learn something new for two
As you know, you never stop learning and right now there are tons of opportunities to try something new – even for two. How about a yoga class for couples? That may sound clichéd, but it’s guaranteed to be fun if you really try it. At the same time, you are doing something for your health. If you can inspire your partner for a dance course, it can also become a great shared hobby, in which you will not only learn one type of dance but also a lot about each other.
6. Hobbies for couples in the green
If you like being in nature, you can live out your closeness to nature together with your partner. You don’t necessarily have to have a plot of land with a house and garden, your own balcony or a few herb beds in the courtyard can be enough. As a balance to everyday life, you can cultivate your green thumb together, spend time together and maybe soon sprinkle the pizza with home-grown oregano! Gardening is an ideal hobby, especially for couples who live together.
7. Helpers wanted!
Have you been thinking about volunteering for a while? This not only looks good on your CV, but also has a positive effect on your relationship. Together you can choose an association that works for a good cause and convinces you personally. Strictly speaking, this may not fall directly into the category of a hobby for couples, but doing something together for others connects. It is a nice feeling to help others and it is even nicer when you can share it with your partner.
