There are many ways to find potential partners (love), such as through online dating websites and apps, social events, and shared interests or hobbies. It is important to remember to be yourself and to not rush into a relationship. Communication and honesty are key in any healthy partnership, or relationship and love.
Here are some top tips for maintaining a healthy relationship with a partner:
Communicate openly and honestly with each other. Be willing to listen and to share your thoughts and feelings.
Show appreciation and gratitude for your partner. Take the time to recognise and acknowledge their contributions to the relationship.
Make time for each other. Whether it’s a regular date night or simply making sure to check in with each other regularly, make sure to prioritise your relationship.
Be willing to compromise and to work through conflicts. No relationship is perfect, and conflicts will inevitably arise. It is important to be willing to find a middle ground and to work through any issues together.
Show physical and emotional affection. Simple gestures such as holding hands or giving a hug can help to strengthen the bond between partners.
Respect each other’s boundaries and interests. Give each other space and support each other’s hobbies and passions.
Keep working on the relationship. Relationships require effort and commitment to be successful, so make sure to keep putting in the work even when things are going well.
When we were young we made some great friends/mates in Hull and had many activities that we fantastic. A lot of the games played back in the 60s, 70s and 80s have now gone and are no longer around in current schools.
Here are some outdoor games that were popular in Hull in the 1960s 1970s and 1980s:
This is a game that is played with friends by having one player be the “bulldog,” while the other players try to run across the playing field without getting caught. If a player is caught, they become a bulldog as well. The last player left who has not been caught is the winner.
Tag, with Friends:
This is a classic game that is played by having one player be “it,” while the other players try to avoid being tagged. If a player is tagged, they become “it” and the game continues.
What’s the Time, Mr. Wolf?:
This is a game that is played with friends having one player being the “wolf,” while the other players line up a few yards away. The wolf calls out “What’s the time, Mr. Wolf?” and the players must respond with a time (e.g., “It’s one o’clock!”). The wolf can then take a certain number of steps towards the players, depending on the time they called out. The players must run back to their starting line before the wolf can tag them.
This is a game that is played with a chestnut (a type of nut) and a piece of string.
Players take turns trying to hit their opponent’s chestnut with their own, with the goal of breaking their friend/opponent’s chestnut.
Rounders, with Friends:
This is a game that is similar to baseball and is played with a bat and a ball. Players take turns hitting the ball and running around the bases, with the goal of scoring as many “rounders” (points) as possible.
