96 Hilarious Boyfriends And Husbands Who Make Sure That Their Relationships Are Never Boring (New Pics)


We genuinely feel that a good sense of humor is one of the most important things to look for in a partner. No matter how tough things might get, they’ll find the silver lining, keep both of your moods up, and help you giggle your way toward bluer skies. (Being able to make someone else laugh with your jokes is also a wonderful way to get out of trouble when you forget to wash the dishes, but you didn’t hear that from us. That and tickling.)

Our team here at Bored Panda has collected some of the most hilarious and heartwarming things that the husbands and boyfriends of the internet have done to entertain and tease their partners. Scroll down for the best pics and we hope you’re taking notes, Pandas—this is a goldmine of how to keep your relationship fresh.

Bored Panda wanted to learn about making relationships feel fresh and exciting, so we reached out to Relate, the largest provider of relationship support in England and Wales which helps millions of people strengthen their relationships every year. Tamara Hoyton, a Senior Practice Consultant at Relate, was kind enough to answer our questions. Read on for her insights.

Hoyton, a Senior Practice Consultant at Relate, shed some light on what couples can do to make their relationship seem more fresh and exciting if things have been seeming stagnant recently.

"Individually, write down a list of activities you'd like to do and put them in a jar. Take turns drawing out an activity at random and doing them. It might mean you end up wild swimming in November, but that's all part of the fun!" she told Bored Panda.

"Ultimately, when you're stuck in a rut, the best thing to do is talk to your partner to understand where that feeling is coming from. Maybe you're spending too much time together, or not enough—but you'll never know if you don't ask."

Meanwhile, we were interested to find out how someone might show their partner that they love and appreciate them throughout the year, not just on birthdays and anniversaries. After all, while some individuals are very creative at gift-giving, others find it difficult to come up with original and meaningful gifts.

Hoyton, from Relate, had this to say: "The first thing to ask yourself is 'do you know what makes your partner feel loved and appreciated?' If you're uncertain, trying a Love Language quiz might help you realize all this time you've been buying them houseplants, what they really want is you to give them a massage once in a while."

Couples in healthy and happy long-term relationships trust and respect each other, find each other attractive, communicate openly and consistently, and find way ways to support each other.

And that support has to be consistently there, whether it’s dealing with challenges like looking for a new job or making massive lifestyle changes for the sake of health, or something as mundane as dividing up the chores in a fair way.

Having a partner who enjoys humor isn’t just fun, it’s actually beneficial to us. And that’s because laughing is great for our physical and mental health. Verywell Mind points out that laughter helps reduce tension by reducing the level of stress hormones.

What’s more, laughing gives us a sense of physical and emotional release, improves our immune system, and distracts us from whatever else is going on in our lives. Not only that but trying to find humor in anxiety-inducing situations can help us reframe the events as something far more positive. Things aren’t always as universally awful as they might seem at first.

According to psychiatrist Abigail Brenner, M.D., it is absolutely essential to be fully present with your partner.

That means putting in the time and effort to connect to them, even if there are a dozen chores, piles of paperwork, and countless social media notifications waiting for you. Even something as simple as asking how they’re doing works if you actively listen to them.

#18 My Boyfriend Asked Me If I Wanted Anything From The Store, So I Jokingly Said: "Yeah, A Car" And He Comes Back With This

Something that tends to happen in many relationships is that, as time goes by, both sides become a bit more lax. There’s no longer a need to impress each other with actions and appearances. However, Brenner notes that going the extra mile once in a while will be something that your partner appreciates. It helps to think back to how you behaved at the start of the relationship.

Meanwhile, if you ever get into an argument (and you will!), it really helps if try to see things from the perspective that you’re both a team and that you’re looking for a solution to a very specific problem. Instead of dragging up all the little things that annoy you about your partner, focus on the core issue (it might be that they forget to do the dishes or it may be something more serious).

Listen to their side of things, don’t attack them unless you want them all defensive, and search for a compromise. Humor, here, can help break the tension a bit, too.

During an earlier interview, dating and relationship expert Dan Bacon, from The Modern Man, shared his thoughts on the role that humor and playfulness play in relationships.

"The reality is that a couple can begin a relationship without humor being used, but the relationship will eventually feel a little boring and one-dimensional if the interactions are always rational, serious and straightforward. So, although humor can be avoided, it's much better to use it initially and then continue using it when in a relationship or marriage," he explained to Bored Panda previously.

"For example: When a man and woman first meet, being able to really laugh together and not be so serious all the time when talking or hanging out, signals that relationship could be quite fun and enjoyable in the long run. It opens up the possibility that a relationship between them could be one where they can both relax, be themselves and just enjoy life together, rather than being so serious and uptight. That is appealing to most men and women," the dating expert said.

"Then, when years into a relationship together, humor helps to keep the spark alive because it helps you feel happy, relax and enjoy life when around each other. The feeling you get when you really laugh together, sometimes even hysterically, releases all sorts of positive, natural chemicals in your brain, which then makes the other person seem more attractive and lovable,” the expert shared. "Of course, humor isn’t the only ingredient to keeping the spark alive in a relationship, but it’s definitely part of what does it."

"The irony is that avoiding humor and enjoyable interactions in a relationship actually drains more energy from you and ends up making you feel miserable. When a man tries to avoid humor and fun interactions with his girlfriend or wife, he ends up spending a lot of time feeling frustrated, lonely, unloved, annoyed, and unsatisfied with his relationship. Those types of negative emotions are draining, whereas the positive emotions that come with getting into the habit of being a little bit playful at times in your relationship are refreshing,” the founder of The Modern Man told us earlier, adding that if playfulness is missing from someone’s relationship, they can develop it slowly over time, like building a new habit.
