Happy couples who maintain their relationship over a long term know that love co-builds day after day throughout a lifetime and that this also involves the sharing of common activities
Also, I offer you 10 good reasons to get your partner in life in your passion and / or continue to practice diving together for a long time. Because diving is probably the easiest and most enjoyable option 🙂
1 You have your buddy
You are already pairs in everyday life, what would be simpler for you to extend this link underwater? As a couple, the question of who is the buddy with whom we are going to dive no longer arises.
No more unpredictable, insecure or other kind of buddy that you are forced to dive with.
You know your buddy so well that everything goes without saying. Be careful however, the habit can sometimes play you tricks and it is therefore important to continue to brief well before the dive 😉
2 Time only for you two
Scuba diving is an extremely time-consuming leisure activity: prepare your gear, go to the dive site, equip yourself, dive, unpack, share your experience with other divers, go home, rinse and dry the equipment, … A dive will easily take you half a day maybe a full day.
And if you take the opportunity to make these moments your moments just for you two ?
This is probably one of the most enjoyable reasons for diving.
Have you ever listened to scuba divers planning their next vacation? All their destinations revolve around water, diving spots, … Can not escape. Difficult sometimes when your partner in life does not share your passion.
With scuba diving, no worries, you will always be ok to devote your holiday to diving. Unless your children rebelled ?
4 Sharing experience
The divers who live together know this well :
It is pleasant and obvious to spend hours discussing dives made or to do, planning the following, discussing the equipment, …
But also to exchange about the emotions (positive and / or negative) felt during the last dives, and to understand each other
As a couple, it is possible to invent a language of its own for diving. Have personal scuba diving just for yourself to exchange words of love underwater 😉
It makes us creative … and we love it
6 Increase trust in others
In diving, with the concept of buddy, it is important to be able to trust your diving partner.
In the event of an incident / accident, he or she will help or be helped by you. Having confidence in the other is an essential point to reduce the stress that could arise during an immersion.
Interesting for a couple to increase confidence in each other in unusual situations, isn’t it ?
7 Taking care of the other
In diving, it is important to watch over each other.
Whether it’s to help out the other to get equiped, check all the dive gear or find solutions to problems that may arise before, during or after immersion.
Also ensure that each one hydrates, that the heavy loads are distributed, …
It looks natural when it comes to your partner in life
8 Expand your circle of mutual friends
The world of diving is like a big family populated by people that we rub shoulders regularly. The regular meeting with other divers can see the birth of very beautiful friendships that continue well beyond the diving activity alone.
9 Competencies can be reversed
One of the characteristics of diving is that it is a recreational sports activity in which many different skills are put forward: self-control, understanding of instructions, cooperation, integration of theoretical concepts into practice, understanding the others, respecting the ecosystems, …
These skills are accessible to all
Moreover, they allow each one to be highlighted in the activity. It is possible, for example, that the stronger of the two is not the most comfortable to perform technical exercises, …
10 Share the same passion
Vibrate together from the same fire. Feeling affected in front of a shoal of hammerhead sharks, an octopus or the sight of a beautiful spotted moray. To be happy to discover other horizons by holding the hand of the one you love. To witness with wonder the immense wealth of underwater life.
Cultivate in two this great secret that makes each dive a success.
Share all this and more with him, with her.
If your partner in life is already diving, continue, this is just pure happiness 😉
On the other hand, if this is not yet the case, get him/her in your adventure and let him/her become part of the beautiful adventure of your life as a couple.
