Romance Alive in Your Relationship
When you start any new relationship, it can be hard to keep your hands off each other. Everything is new and exciting. Everything they say is funny, and everything they do helps you fall just a little bit more in love with them.
This honeymoon period, of course, does not last. Instead, it gives way to a more mature love that is calm, steady, and can be there for you through the ups and downs. That being said, every relationship can hit its slow spots, where the romance seems to be missing, and it’s causing you both frustration.
This does not mean your relationship is over, only that you have reached the point where you both need to work on keeping the romance alive.
Break Out of Routine
Routine can be just as harmful to our psyche as it can be beneficial. Balance routine with spontaneity and routine can help you forge good habits and find the energy to do everything you need to do in a day. Rely too much on routine, and you lose the spark in life. This also applies to your relationship.
That is why you should try to be a bit more spontaneous. Go out for dinner once in a while, go to a bar instead of watching another movie, and so on. If you have children, schedule the time away (say, Friday night) so that your children can have the routine they need and you can take the time to try new things.
Dress Up for Each other
Being at home, you want to be comfortable. You cannot wait to dress down in your fluffiest sweater and sweatpants and cuddle up on the couch. While dressing down like this is great for relaxing, it’s not great for your relationship. That is why you should both aim to dress up for each other a little more.
Plan a nice dinner in and put on a dress instead of a nightgown, have him wear a button-down shirt instead of a plain tee, and so on. The attraction is a crucial part of every relationship, and seeing your partner dressed up can spark the romance back into your relationship.
There is so much passion at the start of your relationship that everything is new. As time goes on, the mystery is gone. For the most part, this is a great thing. You two can truly get to know each other, your bodies, and your preferences. However, if you find your relationship lacking passion, the answer is easy – just spice up the bedroom.
Every relationship has its ups and downs, it’s hot and slow periods, but you will be okay as long as you love and cherish your partner. Falling out of love is entirely different than losing the spark in your relationship. You can regain your passion with ease. All you need to do is have more fun.
