How To Keep The Spark Alive

Here are a few ways to maintain a long term relationship exciting and fun.

Love notes
Come up with creative ways to communicate with your loved one. Leave a note on the fridge in the morning, on the mirror while he/she is in the shower or send a text message during the day. It takes a few seconds and it will make your partner smile.

Be spontaneous
Surprise her! Pick up the latest chick flick and improvise a movie night to break through the weekly routine, bring her breakfast in bed or send her flowers at work, etc.

Dress up for her
When you have been in a relationship with someone for a long time, it is easy to let yourself go. When you go out, make sure to dress up for her as if it were a first date. When you wake up in the morning, instead of just putting on an old pair of sweat pants, dress up or wear a nice pajama, brush your teeth and comb your hair. It makes a difference!

Make time for a daily cuddle
After a hard day at work, you often feel like crawling into bed and watch TV or passing out. Make sure to find 15 to 30 minutes in your day to cuddle with your partner. The number one reason why couples don’t find time for intimacy after a while with one another is because they don’t make the time. So make it!

Laugh
Laugh together. Laughter is the medicine to every problem. Lighten the mood and create fun regardless of any problems.

Date night
Plan a weekly date night, whether it’s just for a movie or a coffee. It’s about spending a moment away from the daily routine and enjoying quality time with one another.

Communicate
When something bothers you or if there is an issue to resolve, talk to each other. Often, there are ways to communicate to avoid disputes and arguments. It is the key to a fun and successful long term relationship.
