Imagine a relationship without laughter. It’s like a movie without popcorn – dry and flavorless. Amidst the ups and downs that life brings upon our desks, we should find time to enjoy ourselves and have a good laugh. It doesn’t cost a dime to be a bit jolly and all that especially when you are with your significant other. Every new day is enough reason to feel joyful.  

Laughter is that secret sauce that adds zest to life and turns ordinary moments into extraordinary memories. It’s like oxygen for the soul, keeping us buoyant even when the waves of life crash upon us. No wonder most women will tell you that their partner’s humor was the first hook that reeled them in. Trust me you don’t want to know what it feels like being with a boring partner. 

If you want to find joy and laughter in your everyday relationship then this article is a must read for you. So, let’s dive straight in, shall we? 

8 Tips to Finding Joy and Laughter in Your Everyday Relationship 

Don’t let joy and laughter cease from your relationship by incorporating these 8 simple tips to your everyday life with your partner: Let’s go! 

Set Aside Time for Laughter 

Whether you like to admit it or not, hard times don’t last. They are temporary circumstances that shouldn’t steal your joy or happiness. Every day, find a reason to laugh or put a smile on the cheeks of your partner. People who don’t laugh are usually weighed down by the challenges of life. They believe life is “serious business” and as such they hardly find any reason to laugh. 

But the truth is that no matter how serious you are about life, no one is getting out alive. Yes, life can be busy, but it’s essential to make time for fun and laughter. Don’t be a boring person, laugh as much as you can each passing day. Even the doctor will tell you that laughter is the medicine of the soul. Create opportunities to have a good laugh with your partner.  

Share Funny Moments 

If you should ask me, I think laughing creates an escape from the seriousness of life. To stay alive and enjoy what life has to offer you should learn to not take life so seriously. Keep an eye out for moments that you find amusing or silly throughout the day, and share them with your partner. You could share funny memes, videos or pictures over the phone and laugh at them.  

It could also be something as simple as a funny sign on your way to work or a humorous incident that happened at the grocery store. Talking about these things and adding a bit of humor could make your partner laugh out their ribs and have a good time. Doing this from time to time can help strengthen the bond you share and even make you both more attached to each other.  

Create Inside Jokes 

You mustn’t be a comedian to create jokes, even kids do make jokes that can crack up a grown adult. You just have to look inwardly and find something you and your partner can laugh about. If you want a joy filled everyday relationship with your partner, you can find something unique and humorous and turn it into a joke that only the two of you find funny to laugh at together.  

 Jokes are a great way to strengthen your bond and share laughs together. If you’re texting or chatting in person, a silly joke is the perfect thing to make your partner giggle and brighten up their mood even in stressful times. It doesn’t matter how the joke sounds, you just have to be creative with it and tell it in a way that your partner kind finds relatable and bursts into laughter.  

Here are some really cute things you could say to your partner to make then have a good smile/laugh: 

  • “What’s on the menu tonight? Me-n-u!”
  • “I’m not a photographer, but I’m picturing us together right now.”
  • “Even though we’re not socks, we still make a great pair!”
  • “Are you a keyboard? Because you’re definitely my type.”
  • “Are you French? Because Eiffel for you.”
  • “Are you a pie? Because I want a piece of you.”
  • “Do you know how to fish? Because you’ve got me hooked.”
  • “Are you tired from running through my mind all day?”
  • “You’re a criminal because you’ve stolen my heart!”
  • “Is it hot in here? Or is it just you?”
  • “Knock knock. Who’s there? Water. Water who? Water you doing later tonight?”
  • “What did the cat say to her boyfriend? We’re purr-fect together.”
  • “What did the stamp say to the envelope? I’m stuck on you.”

Try them with your partner and thank me later! 

Watch Comedy Shows or Movies Together 

There are tons of funny videos you can find on the internet today. You could enjoy watching them together with your favorite person.  It is a great way to relax and share a laugh. I recommend that you choose something that both of you find entertaining and make it a regular activity especially during your spare time at home (on weekends when you both are together). 

Having fun is highly preferable in any relationship. You need to understand each other’s perspective or way of being happy as the way of having fun can differ from each other. Hence, it is important to simply do the things that your partner likes as well as tell them about your way of being happy. You are in the best position to make your partner happy.

Be Playful 

As the popular saying goes “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” This is for anyone who wants a balanced life. Find time to play with your partner, it should be something you do voluntarily in the relationship. To create fun moments, the fun must first start with you. You could tease, prank or do any silly yet amusing thing to entertain your partner.  

These insignificant practices can inject fun into your relationship and create fun filled moments of laughter that can forever remain memorable. Two of the main reasons why most relationships fail to work are boredom and lack of intimacy.  In that case, play, enjoyment and fun are vital to creating a sense of connection in any relationship between both couples.  

Flirt With Each Other

The list will be incomplete without this being mentioned. Flirting is fun and exciting among couples who are really in love with each other.  Give your partner a spontaneous kiss, a spank on the butt, sensual touches in their favorite body part and any other thing to ignite the fire. Have a fun code to share something that’s just between the two of you.  

You could leave notes on the fridge door or in the car saying something unexpectedly sensual just to arouse your partner. Send each other provocative text messages or just call to say how much you love him/her. These things do matter a lot in relationships. In fact, repeat whatever works best for you in the relationship. Try recreating what worked in your dating dates. Period! 

Learn to Laugh at Yourself 

Being able to laugh at yourself is a sign of emotional maturity and can make you more approachable and relatable to your partner. It also creates an environment where both of you feel comfortable being vulnerable. You need to find things that amuse you and throw you off balance. It could be watching stand comedy, or generally doing fun things that make you happy.  

More so, you can’t laugh at yourself while simultaneously trying to maintain the image that you’re awesome at everything you do. In other words, you need to reduce the amount of boasting you do around your partner and be more humble instead. That way, you can create a safe and positive environment that encourages you and your partner to be honest and vulnerable. 

Practice Gratitude 

Sometimes, finding joy in your relationship may not always be centered around laughing and doing all the silly stuff with your partner, it could be about appreciating the little things they have done for you. You need to learn to practice gratitude, take a moment each day to express gratitude for something your partner did or said that made you smile or laugh. 

Make them feel loved and cherished. By being thankful about how they make you feel, it will trigger your partner to do even more. People love it when you tell them good things about them. It’s a trick you can use to get your partner to make you laugh everyday, but make sure the appreciation is real and genuine. Make it heartfelt with a hug or something really emotional.
