You may be dating the same person for a long time or even married and the truth of the matter is, things may be getting a bit boring. Waking up to the same face every day can be super monotonous and the excitement fades. When your relationship gets here, you might consider separating or breaking up. Before you do that, there’s hope. You can bring back the excitement by doing what made you fall in love with your significant other in the first place.
Here are 4 tips that can keep your long term relationship fresh.
1. Go for dates
They don’t have to be fancy and expensive. Some couples say that they don’t go for dates because they don’t have money. Why not go for cheap dates? They are great because you don’t have to break the bank and they are better than no dates. You can go have hotdogs and ice cream and it would still be romantic. After all, the main idea of a date is to get to know each other not eat expensive meals. Even if you’ve been together for years, you’ll still get to know something new about your partner when you take them out on a date.
2. Add some excitement
Sex toys enhance your sexual experience. However, it does not mean that one of the parties is inadequate in bed and that your partner prefers the sex toy to you. The toys are just edifying to the whole love making process.
3. Have something to care about together
It can be a hobby or a passion like travelling, going to the park or even charity work. It has to be something that is mutually exciting for both of you otherwise it will feel like a chore to one person.
4. Be spontaneous
Not everything has to be premeditated especially the sex. It would feel great if you acted on impulse sometimes. Kiss your partner when they least expect it. Make love to them unexpectedly in a place that you don’t normally do it like in the car or the balcony.
See? It’s quite possible to keep your relationship alive even after years of being together. What’s important is being more of a giver and expecting less from your partner. It is not a 50-50 agreement. You should give 100 and let them give 100 back. Be a complete person who gives wholly. Don’t depend on the other person to complete you. This will help minimize the pain of unmet expectations. By doing this, you’ll be on your fast track to a long and happy relationship with the love of your life
