As time passes, we get so used to each other, we can anticipate the reaction and behaviors of others. What makes them tick and what they enjoy, we all know well. While to some extent, this is a wonderful thing, it's definitely not exciting. And most couples don't consider it to be very romantic if it's not thrilling.
Well, the good news is that it doesn’t take much to reignite that spark and make things rose tinted again. Here’s how……
Step#1 Try something new together
A lot of the time, relationships lose their spark simply because you and your partner fall into the same old pattern and routine. You can easily take your partner for granted when getting super comfortable in your relationship.
A great way to introduce some excitement into a stale/comfortable relationship, is to try something new. Finding a new activity, TV show or hobby that you both enjoy can help you budget in some quality time together, while switching up your usual patterns in a healthy way.
Step#2 Share secrets with each other
If you’re feeling disconnected, try telling your partner a secret you've never revealed to anyone before. Whether it’s a childhood memory, a vivid dream, or a fantasy, when you share these truths, you’re saying “I trust you” which helps re-establish an emotional bond. And that can feel very sexy.
Step#3 Institute one phone-free hour every day
You know that the world won't end if you don’t check the phones in one hour, so why not use it to your advantage? Think of when, like in the morning during breakfast or at night before bed, you and your partner typically feel most distracted by technology. Promise to ditch your phones for a portion of the time per day so that technology does not get in the way of enhancing your love.
One hour spent together means more than what you may imagine.
Step#4 Check in with each other every day
Even if you spend hours on end with your significant one, you still might not be connecting with each other. It’s vital for you two to sit down together for at least 10 minutes a day just to see how the other person is doing. This may not sound very sexy, but we can’t actually know how many couples find this one suggestion helps in the romance department.
It's simple, but this move sends the message that you're invested in keeping your bond strong even though life can get chaotic.
Step#5 Revive the activities that helped you fall in love in the first place
Start a list of things you used to do together that brought both of you pleasure. As you move from constantly feeling head over heels back to regular life, you may have let some of those plans fade into the past. Whether it's meandering through your city to discover hidden gems or cooking elaborate meals together, reintroducing them can make you feel that heady, so-in-love-I-might-actually-die feeling all over again.
Don't just say you'll do them and forget—aim to do at least once per month so you have a steady stream of dates to look forward to.
Step#6 Bring back intimacy
This is where many couples make mistakes. However, even the small things like holding hands, hugging, snuggling, and kissing slowly brought back intimacy that had been missing in the relationship.
Step#7 Buy each other gifts
It works better if the gifts are extremely private; they do not have to be costly, but they need to prove that you have been considering another individual. A secondhand publication by their favorite writer, picked up at a charity store, reveals that you understand something about them and could be a lot more intimate than a costly but anonymous item of jewelry.
