Too knackered to get naked? Too drained to get down? Can’t remember when you last jumped his bones? Cobwebs forming in your nether regions?
Scheduled Bingo will help you out of this dry patch.
(Come on ladies, figure it out. Code name Bingo for any kids peering over your shoulder.)
Ah! Now I know what you’re talking about! But scheduled bingo? Are you kidding me? How unromantic is that!
We know, we know. Hear us out.
It doesn’t sound sexy, but neither does drifting apart. You’ve got to make time to play bingo.
It’s tough when kids and responsibilities take up big chunks of your time and energy, but this is the fuel in your relationship. Finding a time when you’re both energised, relaxed and up for it is about as likely as finding a naked Ryan Gosling under your sheets.
If you and your partner are out of synch, a bingo schedule will help get you back on track.
Step 1 – On your marks
Sit together with your calendar (and a glass of wine) to work out your best bingo options. Explain to your other half that you want to push this up the priority list and that you’re trying to ensure that – at the very least – basic needs are met. He needs to know bingo’s important to you.
Step 2 – Get set
Decide when you both have the fewest distractions, the most energy and are most likely to be up for it. You don’t have to commit to playing bingo at all of these times, but you’ll get a good idea of when you’re most likely want to get the balls out.
You up for some Bingo this Saturday while the kids are at that birthday party?
Schedule at least one bingo session a week. Twice is even better.
Believe it or not, there’s even a new App that makes it fun and easy for couples to shake up their relationship routine and schedule in alone time….
Step 3 – binGO!
Now you’ve scheduled your bingo session, stick to it. Sometimes it’s just a case of getting on with it, even if you’re not quite in the mood. Once you get going, you get into it and wonder why you don’t play more often!
Scheduling doesn’t have to be forever, just until you get your groove back. Before you know it, you’ll be playing bingo spontaneously again.
Some bonus bingo terms you can use at home: 34 – Ask for More, 41 – Time for Fun, 63 – Tickle Me, 78 – Heaven’s Gate, 79 – One More Time….
Come on, don’t be afraid to leave a comment below. What do you think of scheduled bingo? Is it better than nothing? Something to try until the spontaneity returns?
