If you meet 10 couples and ask them about their secret to keeping the spark alive in the relationship, you won’t get a common answer from any of them, because there are different ways to keep the spark alive.
If you want to spice up your relationship as well, here are a few tips you should follow:
Make Effort to Look Good
It is true that your partner needs to love you regardless of your physical appearance, but your appearance has an impact on how you feel about yourself and how your partner sees you. It is okay to have down days and hanging out in sweatpants, but you should focus on keeping a healthy balance. Try wearing something really sexy, try a new hairstyle, and spritz on some perfume. Look good for yourself and your partner.
Surprise One Another
When you start dating someone, most of the excitement comes from the unknown. It is because you don’t know a lot about what’s about to unfold in front of you and this way the excitement levels always stay high. As you spend more time into a relationship, you begin knowing your partner and everything starts to become more functional. You can actually avoid the relationship from becoming “predictable and boring” by doing things that may surprise your partner. From giving gifts, going on a date, or planning a romantic trip, you can do so many things to surprise your partner.
Take Some “Me” Time
As people spend more and more time together in a relationship, they tend to give less time to themselves. It is good to have a fun time with your partner, but you need alone time as well. It can help you look at things differently and think more clearly. You can do things that you used to do and this “me” time can be refreshing for you. Ask your partner to do the same and see how this little practice can give a new life to your relationship. You should do it at least 1-2 times in a month.
Okay, there is no doubt that lovemaking is fun but in our opinion, all the things that lead to sex are way more exciting. Whether it is holding hands, cuddling or making out, these things build up the excitement for both partners. Try to do unplanned little things such as kissing each other, making out or caressing your partner’s leg (doing it while watching a romantic movie is a good idea).
Every relationship requires compromises and nothing would work if there are no sacrifices from both sides. Don’t believe anyone who tells you that relationships are super easy and all fun. You have to strive to make a relationship work. Relationships are fun and exciting only if you try to make them!
