5 Ways to Spend Quality Time With Someone

Quality time makes a significant difference in a relationship – and is recognized as one of the five love languages – which many believe is the most preferred. Why? Because quality time demonstrates affection, serves as an affirmation of feelings, and facilitates bonding.

5 Ways to Spend Quality Time With Someone

Quality time is focused on being together and expressing love through designated personal care and attention. When it comes to love languages, it’s critical to do everything possible to make your partner or loved one feel appreciated.

So, if you've been wondering how to spend quality time with your loved one, you're in luck. Here are five ways to express your concern and feelings through quality time together.

1. Try New Things

Sometimes everything in a long-term relationship becomes routine. So, to keep the spark alive, trying new things together is one way to go about it. There are a lot of creative activities to look into doing as a couple – or with friends. They’ll re-energize the relationship, and give you both a different outlook.

2. Go On A Weekend Getaway

Spending one-on-one time with your loved one on vacation is one of the best ways to spend quality time together. A few days spent in a different location can transform a relationship. Traveling together creates beautiful memories – and this facilitates bonding. Fortunately, you can always start by vacationing in a nearby village or town while planning to travel the world together. How romantic is that.

3. Have A Movie Marathon

This is inexpensive and never gets old. All you have to do is pick out a series of movies that you want to watch together – and do just that. Although going out to the cinema has its appeal, watching a movie at home together on the bed or couch with some homemade popcorn sounds just perfect too. And you won’t have to listen to other people munching on their popcorn either.

4. Play A Game Together

An excellent way to connect with someone. Whether a video game, board or card game, this is one fun way to spend quality time with your loved one. Playing games together helps you bond with your partner: developing teamwork, promoting healthy competition – and giving you a lot to discuss.

5. Keeping Fit Together

Working out together is a healthy way of spending quality time with your loved one. With the support of a partner, exercising becomes more fun. You get to motivate each other and strike up several conversations while you’re at it. Who knows where working up a sweat will take you!


Spending quality time with a loved one can be both romantic and platonic. However, this doesn't make it less important in a relationship. By simply sharing your presence with someone, you get to affirm your love and lend your support. This is a visible reminder of your love, so make sure that you dedicate time to each other.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
