This is a sponsored post, but all thoughts are my own.
I’ve been separated from my boyfriend since the start of the pandemic- and since then I’ve really come to think about relationships, love, and everything that comes along with this unusual festive season.
I know my relationship is not the only one to be affected by the pandemic- and whether you’re married, single, or you’re currently dating- Christmas always feels like there’s a lot of pressure to find the “perfect” relationship. But I think that Christmas is a great time to appreciate your relationship status, whatever it may be!
Check out 3 tips to make the most of your relationship this festive season.
Find Ways to Date
During the pandemic, this is certainly easier said than done! But with more places opening in the next few weeks, even if you’re in tier 2 and 3 there are some fun, festive ways to date.
You could go and see the Christmas lights in your local area, or go for a crisp, festive walk. For me, there’s something so cosy about pulling all your layers on and enjoying a walk with your loved one.
If you want a slightly warmer idea, you can also enjoy a takeaway mulled wine or pumpkin-spiced latte from your favourite café.
If you’re struggling to meet someone new, there lots of brilliant ways to meet people online, such as access to free dating sites Derbyshire and dating agency Derbyshire who help support people in their relationship journeys and meet like-minded singles.
Send a Care Package
Care packages are such lovely ways to show your partner how much you love them, and I love receiving surprise presents!
And with the festive season coming up, it’s even nicer to know your partner is looking out for you, even from afar. So if you’re in a long-distance relationship, send your partner a cute care package full of their favourite foods, or pop a card in the post to brighten up their day during these tough times.
Focus on Yourself
If you’re wanting to start a new relationship, or even if you’re looking to boost your current one, a great way to look out for your relationship is to focus on yourself.
This advice is always given to those who are single- but I think it applies whatever your relationship status! Working and focusing on yourself can never be a bad thing.
This could mean going to the gym, or even focusing on a hobby. Concentrating on yourself is a great way to understand what you need, not just in life but also from your partner.
I’ve tried to incorporate a multitude of relationship status’ here as I know that everyone’s experiences of relationships, love, and the pandemic will be slightly different! Some people are dating, and some people are perfectly happy being single.
Do you have any tips for boosting your relationship? What is your relationship status this Christmas? What’s the best way you’ve found to make the most of your relationship during the festive season?
