Tips to Shake Up Your Relationship

- SPEND TIME APART!

I didn't see my boyfriend Super Bowl weekend. IT WAS AWESOME! Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Spending time apart allows you to miss each other!

- SURPRISE

Small gifts, tickets to events, as little or as big as you can afford. Just something to show them that you were thinking of them while you were away. It can be as simple and FREE as a silly e-Card through their e-mail while they're at work. Write “I LOVE YOU” in the alphabet letters on the fridge.

- CHALLENGES

Challenge each other with projects like fitness, charity, even home chores... Paint the bathroom, learn how to cook, create opportunities for you to grow together.

- HAVE A FIRST DATE... AGAIN. & AGAIN.

Pull out the SPANX! Make an effort to dress like that girl he took on your FIRST DATE! Stop by DryBar to have your hair done, wear the bodycon dress, break out the false eyelashes! (Warning: Do a practice run in the kitchen with those high heels!)

- TEXT MESSAGE

Flirty text messages can turn someone's frown upside down! Download emojis on your smart phone to send a simple ♥. Let him know you miss him w/a cry face or what's for dinner with a pizza icon!

- Q&A TABLE TOP GAMES

Shut down Netflix & giggle over popcorn to coffee table Q&A games. TABLE TOPICS offers a variety of Q&A boxes with topics like “What would you do...” to “Couples.” Get to know your special someone through quirky questions.

- THE BEST SIGN OF A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP IS NO SIGN OF IT ON FACEBOOK

DATENIGHT IDEAS:


On the Cheap/Happening Happy Hours:

STAX BURGER/OLD TOWN – Bill is never over $20 thanks to their killer Happy Hour menu. Unbelievable Sangrias, Delicious Burgers, & Appetizers. Try the Veggie burger with guac!
ARROGANT BUTCHER/DOWNTOWN PHX – Enjoy the Downtown environment and an amazing Happy Hour menu at The Arrogant Butcher across from the baseball field. Try their infamous pretzel and fondue for only $5!
SAKANA – My favorite sushi restaurant in Phoenix! Off Indian Bend & The 101... These Sushi rolls are the size of a Buick! And are as affordable as $5 a roll!

Adrenaline To Pump Up The Passion:

Phoenix Helicopter Tours/360 Adventures – Take a helicopter tour around Phoenix with 360 Adventures. What a romantic way to TAKE A SELFIE!
Indoor Go-Kart Racing Phoenix – Keep your high heels at home, ladies. I tried. I failed. Wear those sneakers or biker boots.
Scottsdale Quarter – Nothing gets my Adrenaline Pumping like shopping at Scottsdale Quarter. They have so many funky cute boutiques hidden amongst Monster Name-Brand stores.

DATING TIPS:

- GET OFFLINE! Avoid your cell phone.
- Stay positive. Don't let the conversation go to a negative place.
- Ask questions about your significant other. It feels good to talk about yourself! Let them shine.
- Make and maintain eye contact.
