If you woke up the other morning and realized how lame your romantic life has become, it is not just you. At some point in life, everyone comes to the realization that it is time to change something. So, if you were looking for a way to spice things up and wanted to find some ideas of what to try, we have got you covered.
Go on a Blind Date
If you enjoy the element of surprise and love the thrill of the unknown, going on a blind date is probably one of the easiest ways of bringing something new to your love life. Usually, a blind date is arranged by a common friend of both participants, so basically, you don’t know anything about your partner until the moment you meet. Of course, you can ask basic things like age and name beforehand just to have a rough idea of who you are going to meet, but this is it.
The main advantage of blind dates lies in the heightened sense of anticipation we often lack when it comes to traditional ways of dating, especially at a more mature age. Keep in mind that such encounters don’t last long since you meet for the first time (at least if both participants don’t decide to make it last longer). Prepare a small introduction in advance and consider questions you would like to ask. Based on the information you get and your own impression of your partner, make a decision whether you want to meet for a proper date.
Explore Your Polyamorous Side
That escalated quickly, didn’t it? It is hard to believe, but approximately one-third of single people have thought about trying a poly relationship at least once in their lives. And let’s be honest, the thought of having two people to please you is somewhat attractive. So, if you consider yourself open-minded enough, exploring your polyamorous side is highly recommended.
Finding poly partners does not require much effort, though; they can be found online. If you are a female looking for a couple, just choose a dating site that offers such services. These usually require an email address and your location to register. When creating an account, make sure to choose a clear photo and write a short description of yourself (mentioning that it is your first time trying poly dating won’t hurt, too).
Many poly dating sites offer their users different search filters for more precise matches, so don’t be shy to make use of them as well. Choose the location, appearance, and preferences of your future partners, and pick those couples who match your criteria the best from the list of potential matches. Chat with that couple for a bit, arrange an encounter, and see if poly dating is your thing.
Try a “Friends with Benefits” Case
Even the thought of having to commit makes you sick, but you still want to stick to one person when it comes to intimate relationships? Quite confusing, but not as uncommon as you might think. You probably have heard about the “friends with benefits” type of arrangement, so why don’t you give it a try yourself?
Take a closer look at the people around you. Maybe some of them have mentioned in passing that they are open to trying or have already tried it. Or perhaps you have thought of offering something like this to one of your friends but never had enough courage. After all, “friends with benefits” don’t require you to actually be besties with your partner. Just knowing basic things about them, like name, occupation, maybe some hobbies, and preferably their home address (just in case), is enough. What is really important in such a relationship is that your tastes in bed should match.
The “friends with benefits” arrangement, though, has its advantages and downsides, so make sure to consider them all. It is convenient to have someone who knows your body well and makes you feel good when you need it without having to deal with all the boring stuff that a serious relationship brings along. On the other hand, in most cases, one of the partners begins to have romantic feelings, which leads to broken hearts and ruined relationships.
Prepare a List of Fantasies You’d Like to Try
If none of the options listed above appeal to you, it is time to take everything into your own hands. At the end of the day, who knows you and your desires better than yourself? Grab a pen and a piece of paper or just use your phone and think of at least five fantasies of yours that you have always wanted to bring to life but never did. It can be anything; at this point, don’t restrain yourself.
When the list is finished, organize these thoughts from the easiest to the most complex, and start preparing to make the first one real. Even if one of them includes traveling halfway around the globe to have exotic sex, go for it! This way, step by step, you will be able to explore your romantic life from the new perspectives never known before.
