Time Apart In Love Relationships

Giving Each Other Freedom in Romance


Lovers And FreedomYou love your significant other and the two of you often spend a lot of time together. Whether you are taking a shopping trip to the mall, eating at a restaurant or even hanging out at home with one another, you know that most of your time gets spent with your partner. However, it is important to give the one you love some freedom and give them some space to be with others.

There is nothing wrong with the two of you spending a lot of time together. In a healthy relationship, it is ideal for both of you to have separate friends to hang out with too. Instead of leaving your friends behind, you may want to go out to dinner with them or hang out at the bar while your partner is hanging out with his or her friends.

If you trust your significant other, there is no need to feel jealous about him or her going out with friends. You should know your partner only wants a relationship with you and is not going to do anything to compromise the relationship. Instead of worrying at home while your partner is having a good time, make sure to schedule some fun things to do with your own friends.

The time apart from one other is great for the relationship. As soon as the two of you get to see each other again, you will both feel so excited and happy. After all, couples who see one another all the time often have more arguments simply because they are not getting out and doing other things with other people.

Giving your partner more freedom does not mean the relationship is over. In fact, it likely means the exact opposite. You both can still have friends and do fun things without one another as long as you have a mutual understanding and respect for each other.

Fantastic Dating Ideas

5 Date Ideas You Never Thought Of

Dancing Lovers

When you are dating, going to the same mundane places can make the romance fizzle instead of sizzle. If you are looking for a great change of pace, you should try one of these unexpected date ideas.

A Dancing Class

This might seem like a strange idea but it’s a great way to get to know one another quickly. You both start at the same point, as a beginner and then of course once you know the steps you can pair up and really start to have some fun. Most dancing schools offer a free first lesson which you can use to see if you really like it and also it means getting a little closer to your date. If you both like it then you can continue on and enjoy the fun.

Star Gazing

Local astronomy clubs always have outings to observatories or planetariums. What better way to get to know each other than in the dark, gazing at the stars and learning at the same time. Romantic and interesting.


There are many psychics out there who offer couples readings. Getting one of these can let you know what is in the stars for you and the person you are dating. I would not advise you to go here on a first date since it can seem rather presumptuous, but it is an excellent idea for those who have been seeing one another for a while and they are curious about where it is headed.

Cooking Classes

This is a great idea for couples who are looking to get a little closer. Cooking is one of those activities that most people know how to do, yet when a couple does it together there is a certain level of intimacy involved. The added bonus is the fact that those who are not culinary inclined may learn something new.

The Cemetery

If you are a well-established couple and one or both of you has experienced a loss, you could consider heading to a cemetery together to pay your respects to those who you have lost. This is a great opportunity for a couple to get closer than ever. It is also very interesting to wander the grave sites and look at the history and stories of those long dead. It may seem a little macabre but after all death is an inevitability of life.

While some of these ideas may seem off the beaten path, the reality is that all of them may help increase the closeness and intimacy in a relationship. Without that, there is not much chance the relationship to survive, so consider giving one of more of these a shot.
