When you start building new relations, it is easy to surprise your partner, be creative and lively. But when you’re together for more than 10-15 years, it becomes more and more difficult to keep the spark between you.
Many couples fail to cope with this problem and sink in routine. In this article, let’s consider how to avoid this step and feel positive and live emotions over the years.
1. Try new things together. Challenge yourselves. Find things that both of you want to try and experience new emotions. Your life will be filled with new colors; adventurism and courage will make you shake up and feel alive.
2. Keep your personal space. Although it seems useless, spending some time alone with yourself is really useful. It is necessary to leave a couple of hours for your partner when you do not bother him/her. This is an excellent psychological technique that helps bring up healthy long-term relations. Everyone needs some personal space. It is a human’s natural need. If you don’t leave your partner for a single second, you’ll become annoying sooner or later.
3. Find thousands of ways to say “I love you”. It is a well-known fact for everybody. If you say “I love you” day after day, then your partner will quickly get accustomed to this and stop appreciating these words. It is possible to show your care and love with other words. For instance, express your feelings by saying, “You are so cute today”, “Take care on the road”, “It’s cold outside. You’d better put on a warm jacket.”, etc. There are hundreds of ways to express your attitude towards your beloved.
4. Do not forget about dates and other romantic events. Who says that dates are outdated when you get married? It’s complete nonsense! If you want to avoid routine and keep your feelings alive, find ways to rewind your first dates, and spend time together. For example, have a walk, go on a date every month or week, have romantic dinners or breakfast in bed, etc. Do not let romantic actions leave your relations.
