However, to others those polar opposites are embraced with a sense of adventure and new opportunity. I guess for me I prefer the latter. Wouldn't you say having a little adventure in a dating relationship seems exciting and fun?
I don't think most people enter dating relationships to be bored. Who wants to be stuck with someone who never wants to try new things--not even a "little" new thing? Sadly, we all have either been in a dating relationship that sounded like this or know someone who has been in a dating relationship just like this. One thing's for sure, there isn't any fun or excitement in boredom.
It is a fact and a natural process of order that relationships go through different phases as they mature with time. Like with anything in life, if you don't water your relationships, death is imminent. Watering your relationships keeps the soil fertile for God to continue to teach you how to maintain health and longevity.
It is very possible to add that much needed spark in a relationship when a couple has been in love and dating for a long time. Adding that adventure ingredient might just be the spark you both need. Just because your relationship has matured, and you both know one another's strengths and weaknesses doesn't mean you can't sit down and talk about ways to reinsert adventure into your relationship. For example, this may mean that you give skiing a try or perhaps you grab a box a tissue for those super girly movies. It's okay to do something different in the name of love.
On the other hand, you may still be single looking to date only a specific type of person that makes you feel comfortable in your skin. Of course, there's nothing wrong with dating someone who is more like you than not. I'm just saying that it is also okay to date someone who have different interests. Don't shy away from a person just because they like different things than you do. So what if the person likes delicacy foods, and you are a meat and potato kind of person. Is this really a deal breaker for you? Keep your sense of adventure open. They just might add that spark of adventure to your life that you didn't even know you needed.
Remember you don't have to feel stuck or bored in your dating relationships. See bicycles are designed to take you somewhere only if you get on and pedal. Don't be that person who operates on auto pilot and takes pride in everything staying the same. Date people who have different interests, expand your life, try new things, and say yes to adventure!
