Today, we examine fun challenges for couples.
At some point in the relationship, couples will face the challenge of keeping their relationship interesting.
At this stage, you and your partner must have visited all the cool restaurants, played several board games, gone on romantic trips, and suddenly, the relationship has begun to roll down the boring slope.
A quick search on the internet for fun things to do with your boyfriend will only lead to things you have done or things that are way over your budget as a couple.
So, rather than recommend the cliche fun things for couples to do to kill boredom, I’m recommending something different – Challenges!
Seriously, what better way to keep the spark alive than to challenge each other in fun and interesting ways. It’s even better if both of you have a competitive streak as well as a sense of humor.
Do you think you have the skills to beat your partner? Well, now you can find out.

7. Do My Makeup Challenge
Has your boyfriend ever complained about the amount of time that you spend getting ready? With the makeup challenge, you get to show him just how difficult it is to put on makeup.
For the makeup challenge, you will hand over your makeup bag to your spouse, partner, boyfriend, or whatever you are calling your relationship at this stage. Then, have them root through it and decide what they are going to use on your face.
The trick is that you can’t tell them what any product is used for or where it goes. They will have to apply it where they feel it is right and you can’t stop them even if they get it wrong. Once they are done, you get to see the finished results in the mirror and judge just how good their makeup applying skills are. Watch how this couple fared when they took the makeup challenge:

6. Blindfold Kissing Challenge
You know couples are supposed to close their eyes when they lock lips. The blindfold kissing challenge makes sure both couples have their eyes closed. The Blindfold kissing challenge is a fun challenge for couples that requires both lovers to put on a blindfold and kiss each other. So, there’s no chance for peeking.
To make things just a little bit more complicated, you will need to face away from each other, with your backs lined up. This way, you are going to have to work that much harder to find each other’s face! It’s going to take a lot longer than you could have imagined.
Love is blind, so a couple trying to find their way to each other shows true love. Also, it is going to be pretty hilarious and cute to watch. So, don’t take this challenge without recording it, it will be much more fun to sit together and watch yourselves struggle to find each other afterward.
