One of the perks of having a boyfriend is you now have somebody to share your free time with. The more things you do together as a couple, and the more hobbies or passions you share, the more fun you will have in each other's company as well as in the relationship. There are many things you can do with your boyfriend that will help you two create wonderful shared memories.
There is more to food than going to a nice restaurant, although if you like to do that, there's no reason why you can't. Alternatively, you can pack a picnic basket and share it in the park or another appropriate spot you know. You can also take a cooking class with your boyfriend. Talk about what kind of food you both like to eat and sign up for a class on how to master it. After you learn how to cook, you can make a dinner together for the two of you, or invite family and friends as well.
Sports are also a fun-filled activity you can do as a couple, especially if you are both athletic. In winter, you can go ice skating, skiing or snowboarding. If you don't know how to, you can get lessons together. In the warmer months, you can go horseback riding or bike riding in nature. For extra cuteness points, you can buy or hire a tandem bicycle. Another thing appropriate for couples is dance lessons.
Couples who enjoy art can take an art class of any sort together. You can take classes in painting, sculpturing, photography, ceramics, glass blowing or jewellery making or can take guitar, violin, piano or voice lessons. If lessons are not your thing, you can pick a museum or exhibition you want to see and take your boyfriend there. If you can manage to surprise him with it, it will be even better.
Creating long-lasting memories is never easier than when you and your boyfriend take a holiday together. You two don't need to go far; you can just dedicate a day to a road trip somewhere near by. Of course, if you can afford the time and money, wherever you two want to go the most will be the most perfect destination of all.
