Couples that volunteer together, stay together—at least that’s what we, at AWESOME, believe. Volunteer work helps the world become a better place; who better to do such work with than your partner?
Many couples admit to meeting their partners while doing volunteer work. It’s a no-brainer really. You’re in a space with people who share similar values to you, it’s only natural to find someone you click with.
Here are our top reasons why couples should volunteer together:
It’s a bonding experience like no other
To build a relationship, you need to bond with your partner, get to know them well and observe how they are with you and others around you. Volunteer work is a way to get to know another side to them.
Reaching out to others and helping those less fortunate than yourself releases oxytocin in your body. This hormone is also known as the ‘cuddle hormone,’ which makes you feel even closer to your partner. Volunteer work allows you to talk about issues you wouldn’t normally, which helps you two get to know each other better.
Discover shared values and passions
Finding the perfect volunteer program for you and your partner to be part will help your relationship in many ways. It’ll allow you to discuss mutual interests you didn’t even know existed. It’ll draw you closer as a couple and there’s just something so special about seeing your partner be passionate about something.
It’s a new activity to try together
Couples often get stuck in a rut of going to the movies and trying new food places together. It’s not like you don’t want to try new things, but more that you don’t know what to do. Volunteering for a cause that’s close to your heart will give you something new to do together.
You discover newer things to be grateful for
Working for the less privileged makes you realize how much you have to be grateful for. You feel blessed to have a great partner and a comfortable life.
