My boyfriend and i are having issues spending enough time together because he works pretty much full time. Are there any activities that you would suggest we try that preferably don't cost money and are fun?

I like all of Anksters suggestions :) I would also suggest going to stores and not buying anything- like animal stores! I love to do this (but maybe this is just me? haha). Then you can play with the animals but you don't really buy them. And the park is ALWAYS free and ALWAYS wonderful. You could go for bike rides in the park too, which is always very fun :)

I guess you guys should spend more time at home watching movies together and sitting clos eto each other with hand in hand.You guys should go for a long walk and talk to each other about the distances in past few days.You should have a candle light dinner at home itself and you can enjoy the togetherness with a long drive if possible to some lonely place..When your boyfriend is free on weekends you can rejuvenate him by giving him special massage therapy also you guys can plan some outings or a picnic where you both are alone,

I would suggest going to the park and having a picnic with the food you have around the house instead of going out and buying a lot of stuff for a picnic just use the stuff around the house.Picnics are usually fun and it gives you time to talk.

I know how hard it can be trying to keep a relationship together when one, or both, of you are so busy with work. If he works at a place where doesn't require him to travel, how about packing lunch & setting up a little lunch date on his meal break? Offer to give him a ride one or twice a week & when you pick him up after work, go for a long drive just talking about anything & everything. If you guys can manage to get a same day off, then make it something fun like going swimming, hanging out at a book store with coffee shop & go people watching over a cup of coffee. You guys can always have a private dance party (?). As corny as it may sound, if & when you guys can have the house to yourselves, crank up the stereo & just dance around, acting goofy. Nothing brings 2 people closer when laughing hysterically together without having to worry about prying eyes. I'm not trying to imply that you guys are sexually active or not, & there's nothing wrong either way, may be have a romantic dinner but make it different. Something unusual so that you guys have something to talk about later. "Remember when we did....." Making & sharing good & fun memories can be fun at the time when it happens but also it can bring people closer.
