Do you and your partner sometimes find that your relationship has become stagnant? Sometimes when you get comfortable with one another, it can lead to you missing out on the old romance that brought you together in the first place.
The longer we spend in a committed relationship, the easier it becomes to fall into the habit of combining our every day routine with our once-in-a-lifetime romance. These days, we’re more likely to share a quick acknowledgement before work, rather than a goodbye kiss, or a marathon of movies has become the only form of a date night. It’s difficult to keep the chemistry alive.
If you’re looking to spice up your love life, there are a few little things you can do to put the spark back into the fire. Small gestures to show you both still care really do make a difference. Take a look at these three suggestions in how you can spice up your relationship and love life.
Get intimate again
Actions are greater than words. In order to relive the honeymoon phases with your other half again, you need to make sure that you find ways to get intimate with one another again. Engaging in intimate moments such as holding hands or snuggling while talking in bed, will reinforce to one another how you feel and also feel loved in return.
As for your sex life, why not step out of your comfort zones and try something different, such as going to adult store together? One of the best ways to spice things up in the bedroom is by introducing some sex toys to the equation. Buy some whips, handcuffs, or whatever you both fancy. And ladies, don’t feel like you’ll miss out! Sex toys for women are common everywhere these days. Just buying them together will already spice up your relationship!
Unplug from your phone
How many times have you gone to bed, only for you both to be sat on your phones all night? Our phones are both our best friend and our worst distraction. There’s nothing more impersonal than trying to tell your significant other about your day, only for them to respond occasionally whilst scrolling through their phone.
To avoid this lasting impact on your relationship, make it a goal to detach yourselves from technology. Try spending some quality personal time together away from the screen of your handheld device. It may only seem like a small action, but it’s one that will make a lasting impact and large connection between you that you might have felt was fading away.
Make time for one another
The world of modern-day dating can be hard. Our lives are so much more hectic nowadays, so it’s important that you and your partner make time for one another. We all have work, hobbies and friends to deal with day-to-day, but you need to make sure that your other half is included on the list. If you both live together, it can sometimes be easy to think that you’re already spending time with them, but is it quality time?
Make an effort by arranging weekly dates, where both of you go out and do something together. This can be a romantic dinner in a restaurant, watching a movie at the cinema together, or even just a walk around your local park. Reigniting the spark in a relationship often involves engaging in activities that remind the brain and body of the lustful phase of love that you both shared when you started dating.
