Here is a brilliant idea to spice up your relationship, and maybe say things that are bothering you, but you are avoiding it like the plague, because you don't want to start a fight. Start making each other crossword puzzles, with only stuff you two know about, the possibilities are endless. You can make it, to find a key word in the end, or make the clues very interesting, for example, where and when was your first kiss, what was your first fight about, and so forth. Girls play nice don't just pick old stuff, men aren't to good with that! lol Use whatever happened a few days ago, but keep it very personal. While we are at it give some ideas, or come and tell us later, how he/she reacted with the first try!

That sounds like fun. After hubby goes to work I will try it, maybe. It will keep my brain working that is for sure. I have some ideas. I guess I will have a followup to this later. He likes word puzzles and sudoku as well. It might be easier if I go print out some graph paper to work on. I know there is a place to do that, so I am off. It is in my Microsoft stuff, because I know I have done it before. I am ready for some summer fun. Especially since we are having so much rain, and it is keeping me indooors.

Oh I hear you, the same this side, but give it a try. It is very rewarding, but be warned it can sometimes backfire! My husband likes to procrastinate, and I made him one, and he didn't talk to me for hours! But now he realizes I am fully aware of his 'bad habit' When the first person comes back with one of their puzzles they made, I will put that one up here, you are going to laugh yourself sick! lol!

That was a great idea... I mean that is something that both partners can enjoy if they really know each other well... As of me... we also do some fun activities esp during our special occasion to add life and fun to our relationship. I guess that is how relationship should be in order to survive and last a lifetime. We would sometimes feel bored in our relationship and we need to help ourselves to enjoy nad put glow in our relationships with our partners...

That's a great idea but with the long distance there isn't much we can do and I have backed off big time and just communicate with him when he either mails me or calls me..actually it's quite nice to take a break and not take all the initiative for a change lol, maybe if and when we get together again I may try it for a slice of fun why not?

What an interesting idea Annie, I will have to give that a try. I would be tempted not to play nice though ;) and pick things that he should know but probably can't remember. Oh ok, if you insist Annie, I will try and be on my best behaviour and only write things that are fair. :P Thanks for the fun suggestions, will let you know what happens. :)
