“I love you” … If you want to add “still”, “it seems”, or “no matter what” to these words, it means that the relationship in your couple needs special care and close attention. How to restore feelings to their former brightness?
Relationships, like everything else in our lives, do not work as well on autopilot as we hope. At first glance, the couple may look quite prosperous, but it to look closer – we will see two not very happy people who do not know how to approach this topic. Let’s face it, our romantic relationship sometimes comes to a standstill.
So it’s time to rekindle the flames of the passion that you and your partner deserve.
- Meet happy couples
Find other happy couples with whom you can spend time – have a barbecue or picnic, go camping, or to the beach. Hanging out with other couples will bring new experiences and adventures to your relationship. You can try to search for such couples at swinger websites.
- Let your partner feel special
Let him or her knows that your relationship is at the very top of your priority list. Think of different ways to send a signal every day: “You are the most important person for me.”
- Listen with the intention of understanding
Learn to communicate effectively. And that means – become a good listener. Most people listen with the intention of answering. You should listen with the intention of understanding.
- Play fair
Not everything is going well. Sometimes the consent in the couple is broken. At such a time, it is especially important to monitor your intonations, not to name your partner, not to humiliate, not to blame. Before you say something, ask yourself: “Will it improve our relationship or worsen it?” And if you happen to make a mistake, do not forget to ask for forgiveness.
- Let the partner be yourself
Learn to accept a partner as he is, having all traits that you like and what you don’t like. Respect your differences. Let the partner be yourself. If we try to force our partner to be what we would like to see him, this means that we love only our own reflection.
- Take time for yourself
Each of us needs to be alone from time to time. Allocate a day only for yourself and enjoy your own company. Go for a walk, spend a day at the spa, play tennis – relax as you like.
- Surprise a partner
Write on the card how you like to spend time with him, give him a balloon in the middle of a difficult working day or a box of gourmet chocolate that you can eat while watching a romantic movie. And for someone, a good gift would be if you disassemble the garage or clean up the kitchen.
- Create intimacy
Intimacy means not only physical but also emotional attachment. Take time to tell your partner about your mental and physical needs. Discuss what you can do together to meet them. Also, distribute housework. Equally assumed household responsibilities are equated with greater proximity.
- Try something new
Make redecorations in the room together or take sushi cooking courses together. Break the routine, come up with something new that will make your life more fun. You can take even more radical measures, such as trying a swinger lifestyle together.
- Spend the day together
Find in your heavy schedule a day that you will spend only together – so that no one bothers you.
