At some point or another, it’s normal to get bored with your relationship. This doesn't necessarily mean you want to end it. It can mean, however, that you need to spice things up, and fortunately, there are a lot of ways to do that. "Many relationships hit a dry spell where one or both partners feels that the excitement has left and the relationship has become boring," certified counselor Jonathan Bennett tells Bustle. "Sometimes this boring spell is normal, but other times it is an indication of a deeper problem."
A good rule of thumb to tell if your boredom's surmountable or not is to figure out whether both you and your significant other want to get past it. "If you and your partner share similar values, then the boredom issue can likely be fixed," says Bennett. "However, if you both have different ideas of what constitutes an exciting relationship, you might be incompatible and need to break up. For example, if one partner is a thrill seeker and the other is a dedicated homebody, then it will be hard for either person to be fully happy."
If you feel like your relationship's lost a sense of fun and excitement, here are some things you can do.
