Relationships are not fun all of the time, and that's okay! If you're feeling bored in your relationship though, Bustle has a few questions that you can ask yourself and your partner to bring back some excitement.

  • "Have you noticed that we haven't ______ in ages?" Rituals in long term relationships are sometimes the things that we look forward to most. So if you haven't been to your favorite bar together or seen a terrible movie together in months, maybe it's time to go back to your favorite things and remember why you are together in the first place.
  • "What topics interest or excite you?" and maybe this could spark some stimulating conversation between the two of you. Maybe you never knew how passionate your partner was about tube socks! You might learn something new and exciting about them.
  • "Do you feel like something is different?" gets right to the heart of how you've been feeling, and maybe your partner has been feeling the same way as well. Talking about it is always the first step to figuring out what is wrong and working together on how to fix it.

Every relationship will go through lulls, but it is how you work through them that will determine if you and your partner are on the same page in wanting to make the relationship work.
