I just love to relax and watch TV or a movie with my sweetie. To me, it is a nice way to spend time together and bond. It is also nice when we can watch a game together and bet on who is going to win! We usually bet on who is going to buy the next meal when we go out! LOL. He is up by two now :) but it is all fun. What about you guys? Do you enjoy watching TV with your mate?

my husband have 1 free day in a week. We always spend that day going out and watching movies he love to watch and i love to eat. Maybe that is the one thing we truly enjoy in our relationship after lots of works in 6 busiest day, we always find ways on how we compliment each other by doing our favorite things. On such way even we don't see each other more often we know that our bond are stronger and our love doesn't change even we don't see each other a lot.

Ahhh that is nice.. sometimes because of work and other stuff, we don't get to spend a lot of time with our mate. That can sometimes create a strain in our relationship because we are not able to bond and enjoy each other. If you reserve one day or a a few hours to spend together and really enjoy each other then it helps a lot. it can help repair some of the damage that could result due to hectic schedules. It is good that you and your mate have decided to do this and I wish you both all the best in your relationship. Good luck to you!

Yes, we both love watching movies. So we usually bond over movies. During weekends, we usually cook, have dinner, then have a movie marathon. It enables us to relax and just quietly enjoy each other's company. Afterward, we talk about the movies we watched. I agree with you that it is also a nice way of being sweet to each other, like cuddling.

Indeed... I like the idea of the cooking together and having the movie marathon.. that is if one of us don't fall asleep..

My husband and I both like certain TV shows and we watch them together. However I have a couple of TV shows that I watch alone because he does not like them and vice versa. As for movies it is the same thing. Sometimes we will rent a movie and watch it together and sometimes we watch movies by ourselves. For example he works later on Fridays so I will eat dinner and watch a movie by myself. This may not seem very romantic but it is reality..at least for us.

Hey that is okay.. sometimes we watch TV by ourselves for different reasons.. I do it as well because my boyfriend will not like everthing I want to watch and vice versea. Do you have to fight with him for the remote at times when you both want to watch a show at the same time? :)

We both watch movies together, i feel happy whan I hold his hand and lean on his shoulder. If it is a TV show then I'll just lie on his chest and he holds me in his hands and will watch together. Try it you will love it and it is so romantic :)

Yeah, most of the time we relax and end up falling asleep then a bit later someone catches us thinking we're doing something. Most of the time we play videogames and bet who wins. One time we played and bet who loses has to do whatever the winner wants. I lost... But it was a win/win situation for me ;) Lol. I think that all relationship should just relax and bond. It'll bring them closer together.

We like to just hang out on the couch and watch tv and fight over the remote control. It is a nice way of relaxing. He subscribed to a couple sports channels and is now teaching me the rules to cricket, Australian rules football, rugby and sports I can't even name!

My boyfriend and I watch tv together all the time! Our dog enjoys it too! She curls up on the couch with us. We have pretty similar tastes in tv and movies, so we can always agree on what to watch.

My man and I watch movies together all the time. The major TV is in my bedroom. Alot of the time it's the both of us and my 2 kids all snuggled up watching a movie. At least until the kids go to bed and then it's just my man and I curled up. He's even managed to get me to watch some horror/thriller movies. I'm not big on blood and guts but some of them arent' too bad when you have someone to snuggle with and hide your eyes while you watch.

My boyfriend got me to watch Western movies with him..can you believe? He loves those old westerns for some reason. It's all good though because it's about spending time and some of them could be cool. In return I get him to watch a few chick flicks and some love movies :) so we even!

It is a wonderful way to unwind after a long day and to be able to just lay back with your sweetheart is just special.

Yes, we really enjoy watching movies together. We also watch reruns of The Simpsons, Family Guy, and Seinfeld together on the weekdays when they come on. It allows us some time together when we can just sit and cuddle. My husband travels a lot, so I am home a lot. Other than sitting down to dinner together when he's home, we don't really do much. He is too busy taking care of personal things while he's in town, and I am usually busy house-cleaning or gardening. (Ha! We sound like we're empty-nesters! We haven't even had kids yet!) We occasionally go out to eat or go to the movies, but that is not a regular occurrence by any means.

I would love to watch a game, movie or any other TV program with my husband, but I don't. WHY????? Because he changes the channels all the time, and then when he goes back to what we were watching, I wind up missing parts. So, when there is something I really want to watch on TV, I will go to my bedroom and watch it from there. Sometimes, he flips the channel as soon as something I really want to see is about to come on. Whenever we are watching the news and there is something I want to see, as soon as a commercial comes on he flips, and usually when he turns back the segment if over. So, yes I would, but no we do not watch games or movies together.

Hello We don't go out to the movies as much as I would like. Sadly we only go maybe 2 times a yearLOL. We do have this movie rental package and we rent movies and watch them together. We also have tv shows we have to watch . Like american Idol.

in now days,we are so busy that we have no time to watch tv every day.but from the former time,i and wife are together to watch tv and discuss what happen to the next,how fun it is, through such this way, we can get a lot of experience of the tv play plot,long time to accumulate, we have some premonition of the tv play and have enjoyed the plot to go on, the large part possible guess what have happen to the next is just what we have thought of,but few of them is out of thinking of. that is a small number of probility of thinking of the play going on.from this process, we can add up to the experience of living in culture in different country or space.we do like the play but also like the life in such this society.

Yup, i love to watch tv together with my mate. If we are watching dramas, we will discuss about the storylines and comment on the artistes acting skills. At times we even argue over the storylines. It can really spice up our life.
