Is technology ruining your relationship? One of the oft-discussed topics in marriage counselling is the lack of communication between the partners. Despite being physically present, there is a lack of meaningful conversations between husband and wife ever since technology has tightened its grip on the humanity.
On the occasion of Father’s Day, Bhavya Sharma, from Urbanclap.com, shares some tips on how men can prepare themselves from fatherhood before and after the arrival of the newest family member. Hire professional carpentry or interior services to figure out how you can protect against awkward, sharp furniture edges and create a happy, fun zone for your little bub to grow up in. Pregnancy, birthing, breastfeeding, infant care – parenthood is a brand new world that you are going to have to face and it is important you are well prepared and are supporting your partner every step of the way.
Both of you love each other to the core and can’t wait to kick start life at the earliest. You’re probably already living in together… but then again, you feel this incessant need to give your relationship a name of the highest authority, of husband and wife. But then you wonder, are these feelings enough to tie the knot?
Oh that wonderful feeling of having a partner by your side! You start off your day together, have similar goals out of life and even end the day together. But is it all fun and games? Or is it no sunshine, only rains? If your downs are not accompanied equally by the ups, then your bond demands some serious reconsideration….Ask yourself – Are you in a toxic relationship?
There we were again, across the table, facing each other. I was stealing glimpses of his new ring. My mind had almost exploded with memories heaving up, memories that weighed way more than I could accommodate. Not a single memory spared clouding my thoughts. The five years of our relationship were complete with events, incidents, and promises. Some events were planned, others were unplanned, some incidents brought joys, and others fused with tears, some promises kept, some forsaken. But all in all, it was a great time we had spent together.
How To Surprise Your Bae With Unique Valentine’s Day Ideas Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. If you are a hopeless romantic, there’s no doubt that you would want to make your bae feel out of this world. Flowers, chocolates, candlelight dinners are all passé, let’s take a look at some unique Valentine’s Day ideas that can actually make your day special. Perform For BaeWhen was the last time you sang for your love, or danced (or dirty danced)? Long back? Never? Well there is no better day than 14th February to do so. If you are sure your bae won’t shy away or get embarrassed with all the attention, give a smashing performance in a public space. For the “No PDA” kinds, a private performance within closed doors is sure to end up in endless kisses. An Entire Lifetime In A DayEver heard your bae complaining that you don’t listen to them? Well now’s your chance to prove that you have been more than just good ears. Meet your bae early in the morning and in a span of 10 hours that follows, gift your bae all the experiences they ever desired. For instance, an hour in an amusement park, lunch at their favourite restaurant, charity for the cause they always wanted to stand up for, watch their favourite play, enjoy the sunset on the beach, go for the concert of their favourite artist and so on – all in one day. If you manage to do this, you will indeed become legen-(wait for it)-dary!CookAs cliché as the idea may sound, the fact remains that there is nothing better to please a human than food. You have probably already visited the best places in town. It’s time you prepared something you yourself never thought you could manage. Turn your hood into a cosy restaurant for two and surprise your bae with a buffet that you will prepare of course after opening the oldest and fine wine bottle. Treasure Hunt While gifting is common, the way you gift it can be novel. If you and your bae have the entire day to yourselves, create a map that leads to the gift. The catch would be that there would be tasks for them to perform and surprises on the way that will make them feel all the more special. You can involve a few close friends in this game too. Imagine how excited and special your bae will feel when one of the tasks is to watch a video that you recorded for them on their best friend’s phone to get the next clue. Play Genie Before V-Day, get in touch with your bae’s closest friends and find out the top three things or experiences they crave the most. Surprise them by doing all of that on Valentine’s Day. Watch the overwhelmed reactions of your bae, when they try to figure out how you added up all their deepest wishes and made it come true. With these unique ideas, you might just be able to set an example of the most romantic couple in your social circle. Give your bae the best Valentine’s Day they could never image!
